I predict that Painkiller will get a lot of love here and that Turbo will get some votes (even a few un-ironic ones) however Sad Wings Of Destiny is one of my all-time favorite albums so that's an obvious choice.

SWOD is such a great record from start to finish.

I have to admit I haven't heard most of them, but I cannot imagine any of them possibly being better than "British Steel", with "United" and all.

Geir Hongro, Monday, 30 April 2007 11:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

Yeah - I voted for 'Sad Wings of Destiny' just for the fact that I play it more and enjoy the birth of modern metal via that album. But 'Screaming for Vengeance' and 'Painkiller' are soooo close.

Sin After Sin.

xhuxk, Monday, 30 April 2007 12:13 (ten years ago) Permalink

I'll second that Sin After Sin pick.

Though I must admit to loving the first few albums about equally (even Rocka Rolla) because I was introduced to Priest by a cousin who gave me a copy of the Hero, Hero comp when I was eight. The winter of 80/81 had me rocking out to "Tyrant" and my mom singing along to their Joan Baez cover. Good times.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 30 April 2007 13:11 (ten years ago) Permalink

voted for British Steel, but Hell Bent comes very close…anybody else a fan of "Killing Machine?" an incrediblly awesome, ZZ-Top-ish funky tune.

Veronica Moser, Monday, 30 April 2007 13:30 (ten years ago) Permalink

Too bad live LPs are disallowed as always - Unleashed In The East is one of my favourite live albums ever, plus its superior song selection makes it my favourite album by a band that generally underwhelms me. (I've only heard/owned 7-8 Priest albums, admittedly.) And my second choice would be that Hero, Hero comp. Hmm.

Sad Wings Of Destiny it is, largely for "Victim Of Changes" (which is actually kinda genuinely moving.)

Painkiller. Just fucking rips from start to finish. Even the filler tracks rock harder than a lot of bands' best songs. I'd list which songs I liked, but I'd end up listing the whole album. I do have to say that "Battle Hymn/One Shot at Glory" does not get the love that it deserves.

Actually did consider voting for Turbo. "Turbo Lover" and "Out in the Cold" always send shivers down my spine. Unfortunately, the forced "we like to party" songs put a damper on the whole thing.

Jeff Treppel, Monday, 30 April 2007 17:29 (ten years ago) Permalink

Haha! I knew you would vote for Painkiller, Jeff!

As for Angel Of Retribution, I did like that album more than I thought I would when it came out but haven't listened since. I still think it will hold up better than the Dickinson-reunion Maiden discs.

NYCNative, Monday, 30 April 2007 19:02 (ten years ago) Permalink

Am I that predictable? Dammit. Should have voted for Turbo. But I couldn't. I actually love Painkiller so much that I've used images and song titles from it in comic book and movie pitches that I've written.

Angel of Retribution was pretty good up until the fucking Loch Ness track. That thing killed it dead. But there are some good tracks on the record, just nothing spectacular. The first Halford solo album was way better. As were the first two Dickinson-reunion Maiden discs.

Jeff Treppel, Monday, 30 April 2007 22:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

Anyway, back to Turbo, which is an album that I don't think is discussed enough. It's probably the Judas Priest album that I listen to the second-most (although besides Painkiller, I find myself listening to Metal Works the most, since that's an extremely well sequenced anthology). I absolutely love the chili, heavily-processed synthesizer sound. I feel like if they had made it an album about the de-humanizing effects of technology with that same production, it would have been fantastic (which "Turbo Lover" and "Out in the Cold" approach). The biggest problem is the lyrical content, as I mention above, since they were trying to write "party anthems." Unfortunately, they were never very good at party anthems, and the frigid production of Turbo didn't really work with those tunes. Really a missed opportunity. I would have liked to have seen more serious metal bands try the synth thing in the 80s, like with Rage for Order and Somewhere in Time (also both from 1986, and both more successful than Turbo, artistically at least).

Jeff Treppel, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:17 (ten years ago) Permalink

Jeff, I knew you'd go with Painkiller because you're far younger than I am... :) At least that's the impression I get (I'm 38).

You need to get Sad Wings and put on your headphones and listen all the way through. Then remember that they made this record in 1976! It tries to capture the majesty of Queen but the greatness comes in not because of that but how it also anticipates the classic feel that is on many of the older NWOBHM discs (inspired that whole movement, actually) with a smattering of Sabbath (because you had to have Sabbath) and a tinge of the boogie of Rocka Rolla held over for good measure. It was also the only Priest disc to feature piano (and quite well). I want "Epitaph" played at my funeral and I want "Victim Of Changes" to be played loudly on almost every long car trip and I want "The Ripper" to always go left-right through my head like the first time I heard it on the aforementioned headphones.

As a friend put it, "man, they weren't making a metal record. They didn't know WHAT they were making. But it's fucking amazing."

So yeah, I kinda like this disc.

NYCNative, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:28 (ten years ago) Permalink

I have Sad Wings! Judas Priest are one of my very favorite bands. I own almost everything they ever put out. And I like Sad Wings, don't get me wrong. I listen to it fairly regularly. But Painkiller blew me away when I first listened to it. Driving home from high school through the back roads of Princeton, New Jersey at night and hearing "Nightcrawler" creep its way onto my speakers is one of the most indelible musical experiences of my life. And it's never lost its punch in the seven or eight years since then (which should give you an idea of my age). Still, it isn't so much an age thing as it is that Painkiller is their most cinematic record, which is a quality most of my favorite records have in common.

Jeff Treppel, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:42 (ten years ago) Permalink

Not sure I've ever given Sad Wings the headphone listen, though. I'll have to do that.

Jeff Treppel, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:46 (ten years ago) Permalink

It's their "We toured with Pantera and saw the future" record if you ask me. Also is was John Travis' first disc behind the kit and his style propelled the band as well, a style leared toiling as Racer X's drummer. Which isn't to say I don't like it - I do, very much, in fact for those very reasons.

NYCNative, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:48 (ten years ago) Permalink

(Scott Travis, not John)

Could be. I'm not aware of who they toured with at the time. But hey, they saw the future better than a lot of the other classic bands at that time (Ozzy Osbourne, Motorhead, and Iron Maiden, off the top of my head, although that isn't to say that some of those didn't put out respectable albums around then). Way better than anything they had done for about a decade, and it would have been interesting to see where they went from there had it not been for Halford's departure. The energy on it gets me out of my seat whenever I put it on. Plus, as pointed out above, Priest albums tended to be somewhat spotty, but Painkiller was consistently great all the way through.

(Although now I'm trying to figure out when exactly I got that record. It was either junior or senior year of high school, so yeah, seven or eight years)

Jeff Treppel, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:57 (ten years ago) Permalink

Painkiller is their other record that's tops from start to finish. Sin After Sin is maybe their most underrated.

moley, Tuesday, 1 May 2007 11:11 (ten years ago) Permalink

And I feel duty bound to stick my hand up for Angel of Retribution, not as their best, but as a pretty damn good record - especially Deal eith the Devil. It not only rocks, it has a wonderfully comic lyric conceit - 'How did we get to be so rocking? We made a deal with the devil!' - that's clever/dumb in the best possible way. And I love Lochness. I could listen to a whole album of that stuff. Big, dark, stoopid songs that sound like they could be the Russian national anthem. British Steel is the one Halford himself nominates as their best. It's maybe their most original and rocking album, and really benefits from the unfussy drumming and production. Unlike Geir, a gentleman with whom I agree alarming often, I don't like 'United' from that album. It tries too hard to be a terrace anthem. It's too self-consciously out to be a hit single. It mars the album a little for me.

I'm actually surprised at the lack of love for Screaming for Vengeance here. Come on, people! "Hellion/Electric Eye?" "Screaming for Vengeance?" "You've Got Another Thing Coming?" It's a classic! I mean, I didn't vote for it, but I explain in thorough detail above why not.

It was the first JP album I had, and I loved it - still do. Many people say it's their best - I think it starts with a bang, for sure. Maybe it tails off a little towards the end. The production is a little sibilant and trebly, but you get used to that.

it's Point Of Entry, folks...for two reasons: "Heading Out To The Highway", and "Turning Circles"...both perfectly capture the exhiliration/monotony of high-speed cruising...

I was just listening to Point of Entry today in the car. "Desert Plains" is probably my favorite on there. Another one of those epic tracks that sent shivers down my spine. "Heading out to the Highway" is classic, of course.

Jeff Treppel, Thursday, 3 May 2007 00:15 (ten years ago) Permalink

It's interesting to me that Point Of Entry was viewed at the time as a bit of an experimental release and a failure at that. Of course years later Turbo would also get branded the same way...

Jugulator has a couple good songs ("Jugulator" and "Bullet Train"), but Demolition is completely worthless. The thing about Ripper is that he has a good voice, but absolutely no personality to go with it.

My favourite will always be Defenders of the Faith. Personally I've always thought Vengeance is a bit overrated, the title track is mediocre and a couple others just make me cringe ("Devil's Child", for one)...I prefer the dense, cold sound of Defenders.

the amount of excess reverb on Rob's voice all over SFV is criminal as well. Glad they dialed it back on Defenders.

Neanderthal, Saturday, 12 July 2014 17:04 (three years ago) Permalink

I always love analyzing Halford's vocals over the years as his evolution was so, so gradual. what's interesting to me is that while Sin After Sin was really where he started increasing the usage of 'dirty tone' in his chest voice, he kept his falsetto mostly pure tone for years, other than the rare occasion here and there. He started dirtying up that tone a slight amount on Screaming for Vengeance but Defenders is where he started liberally turning his falsetto into more of a dirty shriek.

the breadth of his range in his heyday was quite impressive. I mean, he was hitting falsetto notes about as high as Dickinson at times, but Bruce's natural voice is essentially pretty high - even his 'low' notes (ie, opening of "Number of the Beast") aren't all that low. Whereas Rob had an expansive low range with a lot of resonance too. it wasn't no damn "8 octaves" like hyperbolic clowns trotted out, but it was quite insane.

I also just realized that holy hell, it's almost 2015, and Resurrection is almost 15 years old, and Angel of Retribution is almost 10.

Neanderthal, Saturday, 12 July 2014 20:14 (three years ago) Permalink

finally heard Point of Entry in full for the first time. by no means 'bad', but really just kind of one-dimensional and bland. the singles are the best tunes, and there's a handful of good hard rock songs here, but they tend to bleed into each other. shame since Halford's in top form vocally.

seems weird that this was sandwiched by Steel and SFV - this almost sonically sounds like it should have come AFTER SFV.

Neanderthal, Monday, 14 July 2014 20:04 (three years ago) Permalink

I'm very fond of Point of Entry, even though only half of its songs are great. It was written and recorded in Ibiza, hence that sunny, fun feel to it. Plus their label was trying to steer the band into the AOR direction of Foreigner and Journey, and they were bent on success in America.

A. Begrand, Monday, 14 July 2014 20:08 (three years ago) Permalink

I definitely hear the AOR influence but they did a good job of keeping their identity in the process, the songs were more commercial but still had bite. just wish they were a little bit more memorable overall, but definitely not bad whatsoever.

I'm a little disappointed by British Steel. I've previously listened to Sad Wings Of Destiny and I think that's better by quite some distance.

"Rapid Fire" and "United" are amazing, "Metal Gods" and "Breaking The Law" are very good but I thought the rest was just okay to pretty good. Bonus track "Red, White & Blue" Is lovely but that's from 5 years later (so why's it on this?)

Think I'll go for Painkiller next because I love the title track so much.

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Friday, 27 March 2015 01:20 (two years ago) Permalink

as a singer the pitchiness I hear throughout the bootleg kinda irks me, but that was something Halford always struggled with to a degree. his flatness seemed to be less due to the highness of the notes and just faulty internal pitch.

but he sounds outright ferocious on most of the songs and this is metal, not choir class, so all is forgiven.

plus these are the best sounding live versions of some of these Defenders tracks I've ever heard

Finished listening to Painkiller. I had heard very mixed things about it and I think it is pretty mixed bag quality wise, but overall a good album.

Like with British Steel, I think there's just too many formulaic sounding songs but I like this way better than British Steel.

Maybe the bigger metal fans will school me on this but I feel like a recurring problem in a lot of 80s-90s metal is that they will have these atmospheric and gorgeous intros and interludes but not incorporate those sounds into the songs entirety, prioritising the standard metal sound for the majority of the track instead.
I think "Night Crawler" in particular does this, but also the wonderful "Battle Hymn" setting up for the much less interesting "One Shot At Glory".

As everyone seems to agree, "Painkiller" is totally stunning (I love the Death version just as much), it has some of my favourite lyrics ever because it's just so gloriously over the top it offers a spectacle I can't find much anywhere else.

"Metal Meltdown" is amazing, that instrumental section in the middle with all the solos and effects is spectacular.
Love the drums and guitar riff in "Leather Rebel". There's good stuff sprinkled across the album so I'm never really irked by any of the tracks.
