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.

This album does what most concept albums dont: keep me interested in the story AND the music.
Best concept album evar!

Brilliant idea! Or at least a computer game.

  Album cover reminds me of Napal Death's Scum.

  Suite Sister Mary is one of my favorite songs ever. Does anyone know songs similar to it?
megadeath13 - 21.11.2012 at 15:00  
  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.

Rating: 9 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.

Rating: 9 This might be an overrated album. Yet, nonetheless, excellent.
