Operation: Mindcrime is the third studio album by the American progressive heavy metal band Queensrÿche, released on May 3, 1988. The album was re-released on May 6, 2003 with two bonus tracks, and in 2006 as a deluxe box set.

A concept album and a rock opera, its story follows Nikki, a recovering drug addict who becomes disillusioned with the corrupt society of his time and reluctantly becomes involved with a revolutionary group as an assassin of political leaders.[6] In January 1989, it ranked at No. 34 on Kerrang! magazine’s “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time”.[7]

The album was certified by the RIAA as ‘gold’ a year after its release, and it was certified as ‘platinum’ in 1991. A sequel, Operation: Mindcrime II, was released on April 4, 2006.

A Very Brady Christmas (1988)

Listen Directly

The new episode of VHS Rewind is a veritable Xmas gift waiting to be unwrapped by our listeners. Just in time for the holidays, VHS Rewind! takes a snowy sleigh ride through the holiday classic A VERY BRADY CHRISTMAS (link below, email us if it dies). Leave it to the older, wiser (and, in the case of Cindy Brady, the surprisingly very hot) Brady Bunch to teach us all about the true meaning of Christmas and family. And, as an added special bow on the Xmas wrapping, VHS Rewind has invited some very special elves to join the ride and spread the holiday cheer during the episode: David Lawler (of MISADVENTURES IN BLISSVILLE podcast), Geno Cuddy (of Geno in Evening), Chris Cooling from ForgottenTV and David B Andersen from the dark corners of his mind. We ho-ho-hope you will sit by the fireplace, roast some chestnuts and take a listen to this very special holiday episode. And then give us a kiss under the mistletoe. God bless us all, everyone.
