Using the Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner (GOR) relation together with semi-classical arguments, we show that the bulk quark spectrum in QCD exhibits a variety of regimes including the ergodic one described by random matrix theory. We suggest that a class of chiral transitions in QCD is of the metal-insulator type, universal spectral statistics at the critical point.
