Operation: Mindcrime (Bonus Tracks) Queensryche scored their breakthrough success with the ambitious concept album Operation: Mindcrime, which tells the story of a fortune hunter whose disillusionment with Reagan-era American society leads him to join a shadowy plot to assassinate corrupt leaders. For such a detailed story line (there is also a tragic romance thrown in), the band keeps its focus remarkably well, and the music is just as ambitious, featuring a ten-minute track with orchestrations by Michael Kamen. Those experiments don't tend to work as well as the tighter, more melodic prog metal songs, which are frequently gems, especially the singles "Eyes of a Stranger" and "I Don't Believe in Love." Granted, the lyrics and political observations can sometimes be too serious and intellectual for their own good (few bands, metal or otherwise, can make lines like "There's no raison detre" work). But despite the occasional flaws, it's surprising how well Operation: Mindcrime does work, and it's a testament to Queensryche's creativity and talent that they can pull off a project of this magnitude. [Capitol's 2003 reissue includes 24-bit remastering (which makes this record sound even bigger) and two live bonus tracks (from 1990 and 1994, respectively) of two of the songs from Mindcrime.] ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
