5 stars THE PERFECT ALBUM!Pure and simple,that's all I can say about this monumental album!It's a concept album that influenced thousand of bands and musicians because it has absolutelly everything what a perfect album must have!First of all the concept and the story is catchy and intriguing!We are really interested and curious to see what will happen in the end from the point of view of the story behind the music too!But,musically speaking ,we are mesmerized and fascinated my the mature compositions and the sensational voice of GEOFF TATE,who literally exploded on this album!RAGE FOR ORDER was a very good album,very modern ,almost hi-tec,and with a great impact in the music scene!But,nobody was waiting that QUEENSRYCHE will put the prog metal standards so high with the next album!It was an album that took by storm the metal,prog and generally speaking rock music in 1988!The amazing technical abilities,skills of the musicians and the excellent balance between the power songs and the moments of calm,I think this is also a major charm and advantage for this album!TATE is literally outstanding and his vocal performance on OPERATION MINDCRIME made him to be at the end of the year on position 1 of almost all the metal charts! Many magazines felt the timeless value of this album and offered it the crown of the album of the year-a well deserved position too!IThere isn't much to say more about this album,that it's essential to be in the collection of every people who loves metal and prog ,it's the essential concept album of modern times the DARK SIDE OF THE MOON of modern prog rock!50 STARS for a masterpiece and a regret that QUEENSRYCHE didn'y find anymore such a winning formula!OPERATION MINDCRIME 2 is a parody and a major musical mistake!
