Seattle’s Queensrÿche wrote the second-best metal record of all time, Operation: Mindcrime. (The number one spot has to go to Metallica’s Master of Puppets, and Slayer’s Reign in Blood probably hits third.) Operation: Mindcrime’s A-side features a nonstop juggernaut of knotty, proggy guitar ecstasy, and its B-side delivers a bounty of emotive ballads. Amazingly, it all fits snugly into a Broadway musical narrative that makes little sense. That said, the ’Rÿche’s cynical stance on money and politics seems more prescient as time has passed. Operation: Mindcrime turned 30 in May, and original singer Geoff Tate will celebrate the record’s passage into midlife with his new band—also named Operation: Mindcrime, of course.
