Watch out, this is a masterpiece! Queensrÿche has always been able to stay away from this simplistic heavy hard rock trend rotten by some spoiled dick-heads with their traditional clichés and their shallow lyrics like 'Baby, I feel so alone!'. On the contrary, this band, far from collapsing into a disguting laziness, wrote some complex and well-structured songs and intellectual and extremely worked on lyrics. In fact, Queensrÿche is a real warmachine destined to fight against the establishment. This is confirmed by 'Operation: Mindcrime' which is at the same time ultra-polished and accessible to the masses.

Breaking The Silence has to be hands down one of the best songs ever recorded.

Suite Sister Mary is one of my favorite songs ever. Does anyone know songs similar to it?

Perfect work. Its one of the best concept albums ever written. Breaking the silence, revolution calling and the title track belong to the best heavy metal songs.

Awesome stuff, too bad they became shit after Promised Land. But at least they were able to give us this shining gem of an album before they stopped giving a crap. Eyes of A Stranger is an incredible closer, it sends shivers.

...And so death to the falsity of thy former rulers. Thy kingdom of "heaven" burns in a field of fire, and Dentura is the one true God thou must yield thy hearts and souls to in absolute submission. It is his ultimate decree and will unto thee..

Operation: Mediocre !

Its overrated as it probably makes metalheads feel intellectual for once, but its not mediocre or average.

IMO the concept is impressive, just the album doesn't work for me musically. Only the title track is what I listen from this album.
