Music Brought to You By the Letter: “Q” – Queensrÿche

ARTIST: Queensrÿche SONG: “I Don’t Believe in Love” ALBUM: OPERATION: MINDCRIME, available now Queensrÿche might have put concept albums and rock opera albums on the “metal” map with OPERATION: MINDCRIME. It was their 3rd studio release and gave us the story of a recovering drug addict who becomes disillusioned with the corrupt society of his time and reluctantly becomes involved with a revolutionary group as an assassin of political leaders.

Music Brought to You by the Letter: “L” – Linus Young

ARTIST: Linus Young SONG: “Home” ALBUM: CATEGORY 5, available now I know LINUS YOUNG has been “The Letter L” before, and when they stop inspiring me to share their music, I’ll stop writing about them. When CATEGORY 5 was released, I was scared I wouldn’t like the album. Especially since I’ve been patiently waiting for it and had high hopes it was going to be a solid album from beginning to end.
