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!

  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?

  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.
