As far as follow up albums go, Queensryche's answer to 1988's "Operation:Mindcrime" would follow almost 20 years later with the stunning masterwork "Operation: Mindcrime II." The 2006 album would go on to reach #14 in the album sales charts and break even more new ground for this highly success hard rock band.
Featuring two hard rock classic singles "I'm American" and "The Hands", which would garner well received airplay and video success, Queensryche had another hit album to add to their long line of classic smash albums.
"Operation: Mindcrime II" was released during the era of the compact disc, as the very rare release on vinyl now fetches major dollars if you can find one....that is until now.
Friday Music is very pleased to offer for the first time ever the Translucent Red Vinyl 2 LP set of Queensryche's stellar "Operation: Mindcrime II" This stellar limited edition release will be a Record Store Day 2023 release and will feature all of the great songs you remember as well as the striking gatefold cover art presentation.
Produced by James Slater (Third Eye Blind) and mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Queensryche/Deep Purple), this amazing Queensryche album will truly be one of the more important hard rock/heavy metal revisits this year.
