First 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!!!
Limited Edition faithfully restored audiophile quality 180 gram vinyl. Released with a printed inner credits-sleeve.
