Queensryche-"Operation:Mindcrime"

Do you ever listen to an older disc and then realize how truly great it is?

 

I loved this disc from the beginning but after listening to it again recently, I noticed how truly awesome this disc is. Every song is good IMO. And a great story as well. Hard to believe this disc was released 20 years ago, in 1988.

 

I always thought their debut EP was their best release... now I'm starting to think that this was their brightest moment.

 

What a legendary disc that "Part 2" came nowhere close to achieving. Wish they would've done like WASP's "Crimson Idol" and just did two discs telling the whole story. I bet "Part 2" would have been much better.

 

What do you all think? And did you like the second chapter of the saga? And did you like the direction the band took musically after the "Empire" disc? I couldn't get into anything after "Empire". They just sounded to modern to me those last few releases. Even "OM:2" didn't return the band to their "classic" sound.

Yes "Operation:Mindcrime" is a killer disc, one of the best Metal cds ever IMO.

The only other Queensryche cd that's close to me is "The Warning" and "Rage for Order" is close too.

 

I have bought all of the studio albums since "Empire" but haven't loved them all. I don't hate them but there just not on the same level as the old stuff IMO. The OMC part 2 did have some good songs but it just don't sound like the same band.

Well "Mindcrime 2" is missing the chief songwriter, Chris DeGarmo. Losing that brilliant writer is a blow to anyone's band so the writing on OM2 will suffer as a result.

Operation Mindcrime is one of the albums I want buried with me when I die.

Operation Mindcrime is a great album as is Empire, Warning and Rage For Order IMO :headbanger:

 

This is certainly very different to what bands past and present have come up with.

 

Powerful guitars and vocals, still sounds good 20 years on :guitbannana:

 

If only Chris DeGarmo was to come back :crying:

I agree...buried so I never have to hear it again. -_- When you're done digging the hole, can you throw some Iron Maiden albums in there too? Thanks. :gone:

 

(I can feel your hateful stares and I am not frightened. Pay no attention to that wet spot on the front of my pants...)

I would say something really horrible about Skid Row, but I love that band to much.

If only you liked a band that I hated my life would be more complete. <_<

Oh Mark please say it isn't so, how can you not like Mindcrime there isn't any keyboards in it.

It's tragic, Bob, but some people are simply born without taste. Mark appears to be one of those unfortunates. :nyanya:

...but he likes Testament so he can't be all that bad, maybe he just took a blow to the head recently and he's not thinking clearly, or maybe he's just a bit :screwy:

As well as no keyboards there are also no good songs on it. ;)

Sorry, boys, just not a Queensryche fan. Not one thing about "Mindcrime"--or any other Queensryche CD--strikes a chord with me. Takes more than an absence of keyboards to make an album good, it also takes an appealing vocalist, good hooks, and memorable choruses...all of which Queensryche lack. :devilgrin:

 

For the record, I don't hate Queensryche...but if all their CDs suddenly vanished from the face of the earth, I wouldn't lose one iota of sleep. :whistle:

I've never heard this album at all. I have the "Empire" album, & I don't like it enough to want to check out their other stuff....

Ive never heard it either. I did see them at a MOR fest a couple of years back (I went because Journey were playing :bowdown: ) and I thought they were shite.

They were quite disappointing at that gig, outside venue, short greatest hits set! - Journey rocked though!!!

 

'Mindcrime' is a monster album though for me.

I may have to check it out at some point - it certainly is one of those iconic albums. & with so many people on here lovin it - it must be pretty good.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
