5 stars Queensryche is one of the most famous and influential bands from entire rock music, they delivered some absolute stunning albums some of them are known as the perfect triangle Rager for order, Operation mindcrime and Empire. They gained so much popularity after releasing their masterpiece of the genre - progressive metal - Operation mindcrime that they will release a truly amazing concert named Operation Livecrime in 1991 on VHS and re mastered and issued on DVD in 2001. The album Operation mindcrime is entirely played here on this concert and the prestation of the musician is hard to describe in words. The music is very well combine with some animation shown on screen to give to the public a more pleasent view of the story. The original Queensryche lineup is present with Geoff Tate, Michael Wilton, Chris DeGarmo, Scott Rockenfield and Eddie Jackson at the full capacity, every musician shines here not less, brilliant performance. Some guest is invited on piece Suite sister Mary - Pamela Moore who did an excellent work, her voice very crisp and cold but fiting like a glove in this kinda of piece All the pieces of the album is top notch played, but I prefer Eyes of the stanger, I don't belive in love, Suite sister Mary or Breaking the silence, the rest are beyond words. So, a top notch band and a top notch video live recording, I was very impressed when I saw this concert a few years ago on VHS,but as I said before on many reviews that I don't rate or review an album only if I have it, now I bought it and own it on DVD and the same reaction from me ? on some moments my hair from arms were standing like antenas. The DVD has some bonus tracks , 2 pieces unreleased before The lady whore black and Roads to madness, an interview with Geoff Tate about the story behind this concept and how they made the album, pictures, etc. So, a higly recommended DVD, Queensryche here shines at every second they've play with Mr. Tate delivering some of the most brilliant performance I ever heared and seen from vocals department, superb voice and very smooth and elegant when needed. 5 stars easy one of the best concerts, DVD's, VHS you name it , from rock music, not only from progressive metal field or progressive rock. Recommended for sure, one of the albums who has a special place in my heart and in my collection.
