QUEENSRYCHE – Operation: Mindcrime [Japan SHM-CD remastered +2] + I Don’t Believe In Love EP + Eyes Of A Stranger EP *EXCLUSIVE*
Yes, many of you asked for this hard to find, out of print Japan SHM-CD press of QUEENSRYCHE‘s masterpiece “Operation; Mindcrime“. I really don’t like the remastered sound of the European / US reissue, where the atmospheric passages of the album are lost.
This SHM-CD use the same remaster, but on SHM-CD this is a new sonic world. As example, there isn’t that horrible distortion at the beginning of “I Don’t Believe In Love”. Everything sounds fantastic on this SHM-CD, also the mastering (no gaps between tracks).
As great extras, we have the “Eyes Of A Stranger EP” where the song is shorter and has a different mix. Love the different ending riff as well.
And the “I Don’t Believe In Love“ promo-only CDsingle, which includes an extended version of the song with over 1:30 minute of great extra guitar work.
The definitive, best version of this Must Have album.
