Mindcrime At The Moore
Released: Jul 2007
The CD companion to Queensryche's DVD of the same name marks the fourth time this epic concept album has been released in one form or another. Covering both 1988's original Operation Mindcrime and its 2006 sequel Operation: Mindcrime II, each in their entirety, Moore adds up to roughly 36 hours of the first stirrings of what was to become progressive metal, all strung together by snippets of dialogue. The bleak but engrossing storyline is about disillusionment, shadow government mindgames and getting it on with nuns.
