Remastered re-release of the third full-length studio album by the legendary American Progressive Metal band.
Originally issued in 1988, the hard-edged album slowly worked its way up the charts and became the band's first Gold-certified release (an opening slot on Def Leppard's sold-out "Hysteria" tour certainly didn't hurt, either).
The story-line of this concept album-Rock opera centers on a drug addict who falls in love with a former prostitute turned nun. Together, they uncover a dangerous underground movement and try to stop it before it's too late.
In January 1989 album ranked #34 on Kerrang! magazine's "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time". In the United States, the album was certified Gold a year after its release and was certified Platinum in 1991. The song “I Don't Believe in Love” from the album was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1990 under the "Best Metal Performance, Vocal or Instrumental" category. The Metallica classic "One" won the category.
"Operation: Mindcrime" is the Queensryche's best and most consistent release, one of the '80's best releases and one of the best concept albums ever produced!!!
Re-edition contains two bonus tracks!
