2 stars Sequels are not my cup of tea, they´re usually bad imitations of the original concept. This is the case here too. Mindcrime 2 don´t possess the same charme or heavyness that made number 1 so godly. It´s kind of boring in my ears, and a weak attempt to get some "old" fans to buy a Queensryche album again. Well they succeeded in my case, but I will never support them again.

The melodies and the production are weak on this album, and has nothing to do with Operation Mindcrime other than the lyrical concept.

I really tried to give this a chance not wanting it to be bad, but I just can´t seem to find any positives here. Maybe I´ve just grown tired of the band because of their countless bad albums before this one and therefore have a hard time listening to them ? Isolated this is a very boring album though, and I would advice you to keep away and buy the legendary Operation Mindcrime album instead, there you have a true classic.

UMUR | 2/5 |
