I read some negative reviews but being a huge QR fan I had to buy it. I don’t have videocrime so that is cool to have. The live concert however I like better than Livecrime. It is a year earlier and you can tell. Geoff’s voice is just better. He sings a much better representation of Mindcrime. Yes Livecrime may be a bit more polished but it is supposed to be. It is from two nights put together. It isn’t actually a straight through concert. This one is. One night. A couple missed notes here and there but that’s real. Geoff doesn’t lower near as many parts vocally. I Don’t Believe in Love and Eyes of a Stranger are sung perfectly. You can tell the tour took a little from him if you listen to both this and Livecrime. The sound I thought is also pretty good. I didn’t have a problem with it. It didn’t sound like a bootleg or anything. I love it.

My husband was looking for the movie DVD version of this for a long time. He was very happy to receive it for his first father’s day.
The original VHS version was in MONO as well. Why couldn’t the company or the band insist on a STEREO track for VideoMindcrime. The DVD portion is the reason to purchase this item, which I did on the day it was released. I’m disappointed that the effort was not put into this release because this is one of my favorite records of all time.
I bought this way back when it had just been released on VHS. This blew my mind away. It was and probably still is one of my favorite live albums and perfomances. Anyone who was a Queensryche fan should have already had the VHS version. I am glad now that it came out on DVD but I must say that I am very disappointed. What is so special about this deluxe edition…The slipcase. Cmon. The sound quality of the concert is poor for a dvd format. Not even in Stereo. If you havent bought this boxset yet, dont. Buy the VHS edition instead.
When I heard that they were releasing a deluxe edition of “Operation: Mindcrime”, I was thrilled! I couldn’t wait! This is one of the greatest albums ever made, and this special edition rules! It consists of a 2 CD and 1 DVD package. Disc 1 is the remastered version of “Operation: Mindcrime” released in 2003. Disc 2 is a previously unreleased live performance of the ENTIRE album from the Hammersmith Odeon in London in 1990, which is FANTASTIC!!!! And the DVD is “Video: Mindcrime” which is on DVD for the first time ever, and I was so thrilled when I finally got to see this, and I didn’t need to buy a used VHS copy. It has music videos for 9 songs on the album:
I Remember Now
Breaking The Silence
I Don’t Believe In Love
Waiting For 22
Eyes Of A Stranger (the best of the 9 videos)
and the DVD also includes a TV spot, and a previously unreleased making of featurette which really just focuses on the album’s music videos, but it’s still great, and it’s got some neat behind the scenes footage and interviews with the band members. This deluxe edition is worth every dollar! Go pick it up! If you haven’t heard OM before, then get this! If you have heard it before, get this anyway, because it’s worth it!
