Straight Outta Wells Branch: Of course, no one buys albums anymore, so this sort of like being the biggest heroin dealer in The Vatican.
The Googles Do Nothing: I am a big Priest fan. I would propose for discussion the fact that PAINKILLER is in fact their best work.

mjones73: I gave it a listen the other day, pretty solid album.
craigdamage: oh Hell yes!!Sad Wings of DestinySin After SinStained Class.....everything else is downhill after those three.period
markfara: It's got to be better than the new Tesla release. I bought that yesterday and put it in the car. Holy sh*t, it's awful. Like "Spinal Tap" without the sense of parody.Granted, they've never been brilliant. But I always thought of them as a really good bar band. I've got tix to see them next month, and I hope to God they just play their old stuff./threadjack complete//just had to vent to someone

Lokasenna: The first few albums are good, but don't hold up. Painkiller holds up better than twelve masked men in a bank with Uzis.
Stupid Guitar: Sad Wings of Destiny is my personal favorite, but come on, British Steel is freaking tough!/Stained Class is my second favorite
lindalouwho: mjones73: I gave it a listen the other day, pretty solid album.I have to agree.And to Straight Outta - plenty of people still buy albums. And CDs.
red5ish: Believe it or not, despite having charted 17 albums on the Billboard 200 since 1978, the group has yet to tally a top 10.Yeah, that's really difficult to believe. It might have something to do with the fact that Punk Rock happened around the same time they began putting out albums and they haven't been relevant.
AkaDad: Judas Priest Fun Facts:Sad Wings of Destiny is average at best.
The Googles Do Nothing: Lokasenna: The first few albums are good, but don't hold up. Painkiller holds up better than twelve masked men in a bank with Uzis.Exactly. Painkiller still sounds fresh today. The drumming is top notch. Technically way better than anything preceding it and Halford took his vocals to the next level. Nothing gets me motivated more than cranking that album up. All Guns Blazing, yo!
craigdamage: Just listened to Painkiller.Way over compressed and processed. Hard and brittle sound texture. Lame and uninspired to me.Sad Wings of Destiny, Sin After Sin and Stained Class have such a warm and organic lushness to the recorded sound of the instruments. Non-musicians and folks who have never recorded or worked in a studio will be clueless of this.Sticking to my guns on this one.Listen to the first four Black Sabbath records. Then, listen to any late 80s "MTV-metal" era band. If you can't tell the difference..............just never mind.
