Someone let me know if this is worth buying. Queensryche has definitly "jumped the shark" since "Promised Land". Q2K was the last QR effort I bought and i'm tired of getting burnt by them. I still keep holding out hope that they'll return to that awesome band they once were. I hope this one is it.

i tell you straight ahead,don´t waste your money on this.only song that reminds the first part of mindcrime is ì´m american(the needle lies)others are same old bullshit than the past ten years.some rewiewes have been hopefull but they only fooling themselfs,but still hope lives on,maybe they someday find they magic back.this is sad but true.5/10

A primeras escuchas como que no llega a lo que fue su MindcrimeI pero hay buenos anciones. Hay canciones en que se les va lo clasico y entran en terreno medio "modernon", no está Degarmo y eso se nota. Dio realza el disco en ese tema a duo con Tate. habra que escucharlo mas..

From: Remastered Reason Date: April 8, 2006 at 16:54
Well, this is the best they have done in a long time. Still, to tag this as "Mindcrime II" is asking for trouble. Lyrically, it's an extension of the first & probably just as ambitious, but how about musically? It's decent enough & does flash signs of past glories. Yes, Queensryche is on the right path, but will the next album be an "Empire II"?

From: schmoo Date: April 11, 2006 at 15:32
My wife just bought this for me. I was so excited. It didnt last long. The music is stellar, they did rip off some riffs from O.M. and incorperated them nicely into the songs but,What the hell has happened to Geoff Tates voice it used to be so unique now he almost sounds monotone for him. I just don't hear the feeling in his voice anymore. He can't hit a high note anymore.Sounds like hes just reading the lyrics to me. They should call this effort Operation Mindcrime II : The search for Geoff Tat

The search for Geoff Tates Voice

From: RavenX Date: May 7, 2006 at 8:42
I have to admit i was disappointed with this album at first i thought it would only be one of those albums id play every so often unlike the original, but when i played it the other day i was blown away! it was amazing! The songs were strong, the guitars great and Tate's and Pamela Moores vocals together gorgeous! If youre already familiar with the original listen to this cd with an open mind, what theyve produced is an amazing follow up to the original and an excellent album in its own right.

Recuerdo cuando era fan de Queensryche. Rage For Order, Operation: Mindcrime, Empire, Operation: Livecrime... Discos de primera linea, increíbles, un Geoff Tate insuperable. Pero luego comenzaron a venir señales de que la banda moría compositivamente. Promised Land si bien fue totalmente oscuro fue lo último bueno que hicieron. Creo que Geoff Tate podría dedicarse ahora a poner una pizzería en Seattle donde podrían todos los miembros de la banda juntarse a escuchar buena música...

i only got 2 questions: where's geoff tate voice?, and the most important, where's chriss de garmo?

From: juan carlos Date: July 6, 2006 at 22:26
A este disco le he dado mas vueltas que trompo en el giradiscos yy.. pues intentando darle mas oportunidades pero.. no es que sea malo pero no convence del todo. Los primeros 4 temas (3,4,5,6)son lo mejor del disco IMO, aparte de "the chase" si no me equivoco en donde DIO desaparece la voz de Tate en el duelo de mounstros. Decepción musicalmente hablando, pues con ese título tan sugestivo se merecía un mejor trato. De hecho no íba a ser como el OMC I pero se esperaba mucho mas. Regular. 7.5/10

From: Chad Date: July 7, 2006 at 1:37
Is this comparable to the first one? No. Is this a good rock record. Yes. While Geoff has lost a bit of his range, the songs stand up. You have to remember that this is 2006 and not 1986. There are some very good songs on this one: The Hands, Signs Say Go, Fear City Slide and One Foot in Hell all stand up. Don't compare. Just enjoy.

From: Trick Taylor Date: November 13, 2006 at 14:58
Hard to tell what they were going for with this. What jumps out right away is the hollow, muddy production. Sounds like a modern rock mix, not the lively production that gave MC:1 such energy. The first 5 songs are excellent, but then the disc gets....dare I say it....boring. The "duet" with Dio is lackluster and in general it's hard to follow the story. I wonder if they wish they could have this one back?

From: onemorecast Date: February 14, 2007 at 12:38
I've only heard the I'm an American song. I don't want to hear the rest. I'll just listen to the original mindcrime or Empire.

From: ferstyx Date: March 5, 2007 at 15:29
Que paso aqui. No decian que era el gran retorno. Pero bueno siempre dicen lo mismo. Una lastima, todavia no lo he escuchado tanta veces pero realmente lejos de su mejor epoca y el sonido de guitarra es pobre. Lastima y con la gran voz que tiene Geoff.
