An absolute masterpiece and probably the best concept album ever. Changed my life.

Not a fan of metal, but this is simply my favorite album of that genre, it feels epic and it´s better aprecciated as a whole.

A classic metal album. Operation:Mindcrime, is an incredibly ambitious piece of work, but there is absolutely no question of it's passion and desire. It's a slightly confusing concept record but the performances of the band and the quality of the songs hold the record together. Late eighties head metal, as opposed to hair metal, something to think about. Good stuff.

I may be a little biased since I pretty much love everything Queensryche does... well did... after the turn of the millennium it kind of went downhill however the undeniable excellence put forth on this album is well..... undeniable.

For a band that's often lumped into a group with all of the hair metal bands of the time, Queensryche is pretty sick, this isn't just a great hair metal album, this is just a great album in general.
