3 stars Queensryche - 'Operation Mindcrime II' 3 stars

Not on par with 'Operation Mindcrime', but still a pretty good album.

Queensryche adopts a more orchestrational approach fused with a similar sound of the first part. Chris DeGarmo has sadly left again, but his replacement this time was able to hold somewhat up to his standards. Taking in the music on this album can take some concentration. It seems the album is heavily focused on the story, so it has a near theatrical feel to it. There is still some great instrumental moments that are worthy of the title 'Classic Queensryche'. I'm not a Queensryche fan myself but I felt a bit of pleasure listening to this. Any fan of the band would find this an excellent album and deservedly so.
