Queensryche’s “Mindcrime At The Moore” was originally released by Rhino Entertainment back in 2007 and this film captured for all time the stunning presentation of their “Operation: Mindcrime” saga which had been toured for in 2006. I was fortunate enough to catch that concert when it came to NYC and believe me it was one for the record books. The Blu-ray edition of this film is something that all of the bands fans will enjoy as it brings this incredible show to a bigger and brighter life. My views on the release remain the same, so with minor edits to reflect the higher definition version I am re-presenting them for your perusal below.

“When Queensryche chose to follow their masterpiece “Operation: Mindcrime” with a sequel, the aspect of this was the source of much debate between their long time fans and the Hard Rock/Metal community as a whole. The album while good suffered comparisons to the original which was never its intent but was to be expected even though this piece was set 20 years into the future lives of the characters we met on the original. Not long after its release the band went on tour and presented both albums from beginning to end in two incredible acts, and as you might have expected these shows were nothing short of blockbusters. It was the kind of concert that after you saw it you would muse to yourself about how excellent it would be on DVD. Fortunately for us the guys in Queensryche had the very same thoughts on their mind when they were doing this tour and as result we get the explosive DVD “Mindcrime At The Moore”. The film presents the entire concert as it was delivered on the stage and it was so massive an undertaking that each “Mindcrime” gets its own DVD. Many of you already own the first DVD that Queensryche delivered for the original “Mindcrime” tour, but outside of a couple of dramatic poses and one guest appearance on it was strictly a concert film.
