Operation: Mindcrime (Bonus Tracks)

Operation: Mindcrime by Queensryche
Released: May 1988
Label: Capitol Records
In 1988, a Seattle band who'd previously looked like new-romantic fops traded in cross-dressing for deep thinking: a complicated, convoluted concept album about very important stuff, with sinister side effects of changing technology top on the list. Also: conspiracies of the wealthy, brain control, prostitutes disguised as nuns, and revolutionaries setting fire to the White House! Queensryche presented themselves as too brainy to be a hair band, but they were sort of one anyway, even though they were also weighty and pompous enough to pass muster as "real" metal for non-false headbangers.
