5 stars When I heard that Queensryche were doing a sequel to Operation Mindcrime I had the same feelings as most. What do they think they are doing? How do you add to something that's already perfect. I thought this recording would fall flat on its face. But instead it is a continuation of greatness. I find that this CD is a bit heavier than the first one. It sounds as if it were recorded back in 1988 and just now released. Dio sounds as good as he ever has. Theonly complaint might be that they tried too much to make it sound like the original. The first part of the CD comes out on fire, the middle trails off a bit and the end is a little more subtle. But overall I was surprised at how well the songs were written. It did take a few listens to it and everytime I listened to it I liked it more. This CD will take time to digest. And in 20 years it will be looked upon as one of their best albums they've ever recorded. Only the original is better. I have seen in the previous reviews that people either love this or they truly hate this. People, this is the best Queensryche CD since the original Mindcrime came out. Empire had great songs but was just too pop oriented for me. Queensryche sounds like they did back in the late 80's and thank God for it. If you think that the original was great and you own it then you need to own this one. Was The Godfather Part II better than the original?? There is room to like sequels. This is a must own unless you already have it embedded in your brain that it's gonna suck no matter what. Then stand in line with all of the people who hate this. 5 stars.
