QUEENSRŸCHE Reviews

QUEENSRŸCHE Operation: Mindcrime

Album · 1988 · Progressive Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Losimba
Concept albums usually get a half or even full star more from me than the music of the album itself deserves. This is not true for Operation: Mindcrime. But the reason is not that I dislike the concept so much, though it took my some time to fully understand the plot.

The 15 songs show a wide scale of variety both in length and style. The only thing not represented is an acoustic ballad. That said, I'm be very curious how Operation: Mindcrime would sound unplugged. I guess it would be different, but not a great deal weaker. That said, the live album Operation: Livecrime gets the same rating as the original version, but that will be another review at another time. Apart from four particularly strong songs I especially like the way the story and album are built up. First two short tracks with some hospital noises and guitar sounds before the first real song gets the album going, a feature later repeated before the Grande Finale. The plot is then quite similar to the one of Dream Theater's Scenes From A Memory, but of course Geoff Tate can claim first spoils as Operation: Mindcrime was recorded and published several years before its counterpart from the other coast. Speaking of Geoff Tate, his voice and style have improved massively compared to the first Queensryche albums, as have the performances of all instrumentalists. But back to the songs, I have always liked little inserts of speech and action like the beginning of Suite Sister Mary. This longest track of the album is on my personal favourite's playlist, as are the title track and I Don't Believe In Love, but everything is overshadowed by Eyes of A Stranger, another personal Top 10 song.

To finish my introductory musings, Operation: Mindcrime would rate at 4.8 stars if it were a normal album. Since 5 is the highest rating, I can't award 5.8 stars, so it has to be perfect 5.0 stars.

I'm really not a fan of cover albums unless the songs have been reworked in a very creative and unique way beyond the parameters of the original intent. QUEENSRYCHE released their tenth studio album TAKE COVER which is admittedly a clever name for an album totally devoted to their take on other's music. There's quite a range of artists COVERed here ranging from Pink Floyd to Black Sabbath to The Police and Peter Gabriel to even the O'Jays. The range of influences is great but there are a few factors which really keep me from getting excited about this album one of which is the fact i'm really not a fan of all cover songs for albums!

Firstly, Geoff Tate's vocals just don't sound right to me on some of the arrangements that were clearly constructed around the original vocalists abilities. This includes “Red Rain,” “Welcome To The Machine” and “Neon Knights.” Secondly, I don't think the band adds much to the way of creative interpretations for the most part. There are a few exceptions. I think they do take some creative license on Buffalo Springfield's “For What It's Worth” and “For The Love Of Money” from the O'Jays.

Where I think the band shine especially with Geoff Tate's vocals is where they have always been at home and that is with the more operatic type of music and that is displayed quite well on Carlo Marrale's “Odissea.” This is my favorite track on the entire album. I know some will find this album satisfying but I really have no desire to hear a whole album of QUEENSRYCHE doing covers. I do appreciate a well-crafted cover song slipped into an otherwise original album but despite being a hardcore fan (up to “Promised Land” anyways) I have no desire to ever hear this one.

It was true that QUEENSRYCHE took a definite and different direction when they came back around from Promised Land and exploded back into the public in '97. However, they were not the Reich that people were used to. In fact, if you tried to juxtapose their masterpiece of Operation: Mind-crime and Hear In the Now Frontier, you would not hear very many similarities. This is mainly due to the band simply taking a different direction with their musical expertise. Of course most bands perform this move during their musical career in order to explore different areas of sounds, rhythms, and composition in order to see what the public liked best and what they should continue.

Many people said no to this being QUEENSRYCHE's future. It was clear that many MANY people were more comfortable with the progressive metal path of the eighties than they were of the Hard Rocking edge that they gave themselves in this 'new' Reich. Now, I've never been a particular fan of the Reich in general, mainly due to me disliking the prog metal genre for some weird reason. However, I did quite enjoy their debut self-titled EP, which I picked up from a thrift store, as well as The Warning (which was also enjoyable, though perhaps not as much). A few weeks went by as I only had these two releases under my QUEENSRYCHE belt. I stopped back at the thrift store, and to my luck, there sat Hear In The Now Frontier, sitting on the shelf. I eagerly picked it up and left.

Listening to it, I actually quite enjoy it. 'Hit The Black' has perhaps become my favorite QUEENSRYCHE song. It is clear right off the bat that this is NOT at all the old Reich. They don't do the signature IRON MAIDEN - like screaming alto/soprano vocals, and instead have a more radio-friendly voice which I honestly enjoy more than the previous vocals. 'Sign of the Times' is another winner in my book, as well as 'Anytime/Anywhere' and 'sp00l'.

This is where the album takes a fall, however. Filler. Filler is quite abundant on the album. Perhaps they just ran out of ideas but had to fill up a total of fourteen tracks in order to please the recording company, but it is quite annoying in the way of useless, boring tracks.

Overall, this album does have some neat compositions, it's different and it is actually a nice listen. This is one of those albums that isn't liked very much by the public, but is one of those releases that I would tell any metalhead to give a chance.

Go give it a listen.

QUEENSRŸCHE Take Cover

Some reviews of this kind of took me by surprise.

From what I've listened to from QUEENSRYCHE, I've never extremely enjoyed their sound. Everybody knows of course that I'm not a huge fan of progressive metal, so it's obvious that there are many bands of the genre that I don't like very much. QUEENSRYCHE sadly does fall into this category. But it is not a total hate. It is true that they have mixed and matched several different genres including traditional, alternative, and just simple hard rock. I don't actually mind them doing that. Of course there are people who absolutely despise bands when they do this, and in a way that's the case for this album. But me, I actually love this cover album.

"TAKE COVER" includes songs that range from PINK FLOYD, PETER GABRIEL, and other similarly influential progressive artists (among them there are some more obscure artists as well). I do love the covers they put of from these prog giants though. I especially (of course) liked their cover of PINK FLOYD's 'Welcome to the Machine', because, as a song that is devoid of drumming, listening to it as a metal song was really interesting (in a good way of course.) Peter has never been an artist I've particularly enjoyed, but QR covered him well as well. Of course the other covers are fantastic, and are totally worth listening to.

Overall, I would absolutely give this cover album a listen. Gets a thumbs up from me!

Go give it a listen.

QUEENSRŸCHE Operation: Mindcrime II

OPERATION MINDCRIME II is the sequel to the the 1988 classic and the ninth studio album by QUEENSRYCHE. The story picks up where the first left off where Nikki is arrested for the murder of his favorite prostitute turned nun Sister Mary. The story picks up faithfully 18 years later as he is released from prison and seeks the ultimate revenge on none other than Dr X who single-handedly flushed his life down the big crapper. We get a reprise from Pamela Moore as Sister Mary and even a cameo from Ronnie James Dio who takes on the unflattering role of Dr X. The band was in the midst of all the 2000s drama at this point. Chris DeGarmo, who briefly reunited with the band on “Tribe” butted heads with Geoff Tate and left for good. Due to diminishing sales the band retreated to one of their most respected albums and decided to make a sequel. Well not really. This seems to be a Geoff Tate project with the other members in name only. This was a studio musician affair with Rockenfield and Wilton's tracks being re-recorded by others and it sounds like it.

I have to admit that I was excited when this was released and even liked it at first, however even upon first listen it is immediately apparent that this is far inferior to the 1988 classic. The story is the best part as it explains a lot about what happened to the characters and even some of the individual tracks are pretty good. Even now I still find this an ok listen, but after repeated listens this definitely loses some of its luster. I find it safe to say that disappoints despite my overwhelming desire to want to like it. I love tracks like “I'm American,” “If I Could Change It All” and “Fear City Side” and a few others are ok-ish, but many of these are really not that great and the charade of how it was made becomes more apparent upon every spin. I really wish this could have been made in the 90s perhaps after “Empire” when the band was still at their peak and DeGarmo was on board but as history has unfolded it was not to be and in the process this is a very mixed album for me. OK but not great. Does it diminish the original? Hell no. I can still listen to that at any given moment and be floored and this only becomes weaker and weaker YET it isn't a total waste of time either.

QUEENSRŸCHE Mindcrime At The Moore

I remember now...

Genre: progressive metal

"Operation: Mindcrime" was, and still is, a legendary release in the world of metal, and it was appreciated not only within the sphere of progressive metal, but by fans of all sorts of different types of metal. And listening to the album, one quickly realizes why - it's simply amazing.

"Operation: Mindcrime II" is the sequel to "Operation: Mindcrime", but it was never as successful, and some people don't even like it. Personally, I like "Mindcrime II", although not as much as the original "Mindcrime", for having a more updated sound and not just being a repetition of first one.

Anyway, this live DVD gives you both albums performed live in their entirety at The Moore Theater in the band's hometown Seattle, and whether you like "Mindcrime II" or not, you are in for a treat with the performance of both albums. This show has everything that the thinking man, or person to be non-sexist, of metal should love about Queensrÿche: rock 'n' roll, drama, political messages, social commentary, special effects and artistic visual stage props. This is theatrical heavy metal at its best: accessible yet thought provoking. And it holds up all the way through, so even if you don't "Mindcrime II" as much as the first one, you are certain to be entertained by its performance on this DVD.

The concert itself is great, but considering myself a thinking man pf metal, I like informative bonus material, too, and I think the quality of the bonus material is a bit so-so... with one exception. The bonus material includes a version of "The Chase" which was recorded live in L.A. featuring Ronnie James Dio, performing live as Dr. X; in the light of his recent tragic passing, this particular bit of bonus material becomes additionally valuable, I think. And it's a great performance in itself, too.

Recommended to fans of Queensrÿche, progressive metal and traditional heavy metal and hard rock.

QUEENSRŸCHE Operation: LIVEcrime

It’s become a tradition with rock and metal bands that release a concept album to perform it live from beginning to end, and that’s what the video Operation: Livecrime showcases, with Queensryche performing their landmark 1988 release.

As anyone who’s heard the Operation: Mindcrime album, the band can often have as many (or more) pop elements as metal. Seeing their stage show on DVD, this aspect is there to witness, from headset microphones to Chris DeGarmo’s chaps. I can tolerate most of the pop aspects of the band especially considering the time of the video’s initial release (1991), but some of the stage moves I find to be quite humorous and actually take away from the power of some of the songs. Thankfully, much of the prancing about stage dies down past the halfway point of the show. It must be some combination of fatigue and the realization that most of the crowd consists of males.

But seriously, this DVD is actually a pretty good release. The stage show includes effective visual aids that help piece their Mindrcime concept together, and the footage is shot with high quality. There’s a decent amount of bonus footage here as well, which includes a brief interview with singer Geoff Tate regarding the band and various aspects of the Mindcrime album. Two bonus songs are also hidden as easter eggs on the DVD, "The Lady Wore Black" and "Roads To Madness”.

Based on the rating system, this DVD is fitting of a 3 star rating. While certainly an entertaining release, I wouldn’t consider it to be essential. I’m not as drawn to watch this performance as I am to simply listen to the Mindcrime studio album.

It must have sounded great on paper - let's make a DVD that is totally in a sepia tone and use amateur and professional footage to create an artistic concert experience.

Unfortunately, this is a washed out experience and dull to the max apart from a couple of excellent tracks.

The set is based on the 'Tribe' album which is not the best QR by any standards. There are only two tracks from 'Operation Mindcrime' - a tragedy as that is their masterpiece.

The pleasant surprise is the special guest appearances of Dream Theater, one of my all time favourite bands. They join QR to play two brilliant versions of 'Comfortably Numb' and 'Won't Get Fooled Again'. The two tracks make this worth watching to the end, but I believe you will be ffwding this DVD to those tracks after one viewing.

Without the colourful lighting and occasional 'Operation Mindcrime' track, the concert is very disappointing. No colour makes a boring experience when watching a band perform. What a waste of talent, time and energy. Get hold of 'Operation: Live-Crime' which is brilliant, and leave this 'Art(less) of Live' on the shelf.
