Features two bonus tracks. Long dubbed “the
thinking man’s metal band,” Queensryche have always been difficult to
classify; somewhere between Iron Maiden and Pink Floyd. Mindcrime was their
breakthrough album, garnering the band commercial and critical success.
Arguably their best release, this is a complex, ambitious effort, with top-
notch music and a complicated storyline (a disillusioned fortune hunter of the
Reagan era joins an underground movement to assassinate political scumbags)
that flows smoothly from start to finish. The combination of experimental,
progressive music with shorter, more radio-friendly songs works well, and
enabled the band to release singles from the album while keeping the story
intact. These shorter songs provide the album’s most exciting moments;
“Revolution Calling,” “Eyes of a Stranger,” and “I Don’t Believe in Love” are
some of the best metal songs out there. –Genevieve Williams
