Operation: Livecrime

The rerelease of Operation: Livecrime offers proof that Rÿche'n'rollers can't get enough of the 1988 concept album that broke Queensrÿche into the mainstream with a crack so thunderous that the disc remains the yardstick by which the act's music is measured.

Rock saviors or over-hyped posers? That's the debate surrounding this much-talked- about New York quintet and its aptly titled full-length debut.
X,Wild Gift, Under the Big Black Sun

X,Wild Gift, Under the Big Black Sun

X emerged as a key act in L.A.'s vibrant punk scene of the late '70s. Unlike some others, though, X created intelligently written tales that have barely aged a day. With these reissues of the band's first three albums, fans can re-discover rockin' classics like "Sex and Dying in High Society," "The Once Over Twice," and early MTV smash "The Hungry Wolf."
