Favorite albums friday - Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche is an 80's Hair Metal concept album about a junkie who becomes a hitman in exchange for dope and then falls in love with an ex hooker nun who has to fuck the priest on the altar once a week until he's told he has to kill her. It's been one of my favorite albums since childhood, and I'm super excited to see the lead singer do the album in full this Sunday! Yaaatthh!!!
There aren’t too many albums that hold a place in my heart like #operationmindcrime . I had the pleasure of seeing mr #geofftate perform that record #fronttoback with some of my #bestfriends . @hobchicago housed the show and it was everything I could have hoped for. If there was ever a #timeless record that record was it. When Mr. Tate said that “ #30years , just like that” it REALLY hit home. You get so caught up in the #grind of day to day living that you forget just how much time has passed. It reinforced that the older I get the faster it moves and the faster it moves just puts me closer to the end of the line. Don’t wait to do something. #startnow . If I was playing my guitar like I should have been back in the day instead of being worried about being judged and for sucking big time, I’d be able to say I’ve been playing for almost 30 years. Weird how that all worked out. Seeing that show with #mycrew was the #cherryontop of the #sundae of #mylife . Do yourself a favor and PLEASE listen to #operation #mindcrime . After 30 years it’s just as relevant now as it was then. #queensryche #theneedlelies #silentlucidity #empire #eyesofastranger #idontbelieveinlove #spreadingthedisease #suitesistermary #houseofblueschicago #thanksronnie #eyeinthesky #mylifedoesnotsuck #stillgotit #classic
Today marks the 30th anniversary of a metal gem, imo. Back in 1988 on this day, #queensryche released their 4th album #operationmindcrime . This is their finest title imo. It is a concept album that addresses religion, sex and politics. The vocals by #geofftate are widely ranged and epic. Every track on this title is pure finesse from beginning to end. This has been compared to Pink Floyd's The Wall, The Who's Quadrophenia and Rush's 2112. Heavy, dark, melodic, cinematic, controversial, cerebral, thought provoking. My favorite metal release of the 80's next to probably Master of Puppets. #30thanniversaryoperationmindcrime #geofftate #chrisdegarmo #michaelwilton #eddiejackson #scottrockenfield #petercollins #iremembernow #anarchyx #revolutioncalling #operationmindcrime #speak #speadingthedisease #themission #suitesistermary #theneedlelies #electricrequiem #breakingthesilence #idontbelieveinlove #waitingfor22 #myemptyroom #eyesofastranger
May 3, 1988 was the release date for Queensrÿche’s Operation: Mindcrime. The platinum selling record was a rarity in the metal world. A concept album and a rock opera, it told the story of Nikki, a drug addict who is disillusioned by the corrupt society he lives in. He ends up joining a revolutionary group and becoming a political assassin. It spawned the hits Eyes of a Stranger and I don’t Believe in Love and is, in my humble opinion, their best work to date. It was also voted in at number 34 in Kerrang Magazine’s 100 Best Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. #queensryche #operationmindcrime #eyesofastranger #idontbelieveinlove #spreadingthedisease #anarchyx #iremembernow #revolutioncalling #speak #themission #suitesistermary #theneedlelies #electricrequiem #breakthesilence #waitingfor22 #myemptyroom #heavymetal #progmetal #hardrock

My favorite #queensryche album, and arguably one of the 10 greatest albums ever recorded is at disc no. 120 in #mycdcollection . It's so bizarre for me to feel that way about a band's most popular album, but let's face it... they hit the nail on the head with this release. Heavily influenced by the great Pink Floyd - The Wall album, #operationmindcrime tells a really jacked up story about a junkie and a prostitute. Anyone who knows this album knows the story, so I'm not gonna go into detail about that. The main thing about this record is the technical excellence of the musicians combined with the total cohesiveness of everyone involved. Previous albums from the band, while great in song-writing and spirit, felt almost juvenile in production. Attention was paid to every little detail in the final product delivered here, and that shines through in every last second of this recording. Rarely does a gem like this come around, and even less (if at all) nowadays in a market more concerned with bubble gum, Disney Channel artists than true musicians with skill and integrity. They're still out there, but you have to look extremely long and hard to find them. An absolute musical masterpiece from the center to the outer-edge! #80s #80srock #80smetal #rocknroll #rockandroll #hardrock #heavymetal #geofftate #michaelwilton #eddiejackson #scottrockenfield #chrisdegarmo #iremembernow #anarchyx #revolutioncalling Operation: Mindcrime #speak #spreadingthedisease #themission #suitesistermary #theneedlelies #electricrequiem #breakingthesilence #idontbelieveinlove #waitingfor22 #myemptyroom #eyesofastranger
