As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deal for June 2012, Queensryche‘s Operation: Mindcrime is on sale for only $5.
If you would like a physical copy of Operation: Mindcrime, the CD is available for only $8.97.
Operation: Mindcrime was the definitive rock concept album of the 1980s and Queensryche’s third full-length studio release. Each song tells the story of Nikki, a junkie turned assassin, and Sister Mary, a prostitute turned nun, and the conflicted lives they lead under the heavy influence of the nasty Dr. X and a shady priest named Father William. The band has played the entire album live as a rock opera, incorporating actors to play the parts of Nikki and Sister Mary and even recording Ronnie James Dio‘s one-time live performance as Dr. X which was played on a screen during all other live performances. There have been talks for years about staging Operation: Mindcrime on Broadway, but nothing has been set as of this writing.
