Operation: Mindcrime - Resurrection album review

Album Review

Operation: Mindcrime grapple for conceptual drama in the dark…

The fact that Geoff Tate has called this project Operation: Mindcrime says everything about where he feels the music should go. This is the second part of a conceptual trilogy, and while The Key, the first part, offered some interesting musical ideas, unfortunately Resurrection is more broody and pretentious than dark and mysterious.The whole style here is supposedly menacing, as Tate attempts to deliver a slightly quasi-religious treatise. But while you cannot fault the musicianship from an ensemble that includes some major names from the metal world, what’s missing is drama.
