Queensryche – Operation Mindcrime (Sounds On Vinyl S7 E33)

Join us as we take a dive deep into Queensrÿche’s epic 1988 concept album Operation: Mindcrime. Regarded as one of the greatest metal records of all time, Mindcrime tells the tragic story of Nikki, a recovering drug addict embroiled in a world of corruption. We analyze each track, praising the brilliant guitarwork, drums, vocals, songwriting, and powerful lyrics that still resonate today.

We’ll also share fascinating stories about seeing Queensrÿche live, interviewing band members, and reminiscing about the golden age of metal.

Whether you’re a longtime Queensrÿche diehard or new to their groundbreaking sound, this entertaining episode will give you a whole new appreciation for Operation: Mindcrime!

SPECIAL NOTE: We’d really like to play the music as we discuss it, but copyright law won’t let us, but it doesn’t stop you from playing the album in the background while you listen. It makes for a much better experience.
