Thanks Rick...I had my first introduction to JP back in 1986 when Turbo came out, and I've just heard bits and pieces of the older stuff. Haven't heard any favorites from any hardcore fans until now, so I'll check 'em out.
What did you think of Ram it Down? I don't know their catalog like you do, but I remember liking it at the time. "Blood Red Skies" was a cool tune.
Guess I should add my own....best is, or one of the best...Tyrant...classic, dark and like victim...hits an inner note...actually I like putting the two as one. Worst might be...Blood Red Skies...Sorry Joe Saytch the song is nothing more than a stab at the past and done poorly. Of course the worst material would be the non Halford stuff with Mr. Owens on vocals...no can do after Rob...then again no one can!
i like blood red skies! it's about courage and victory. tyrant is fuckin awesome. and sweetwilliam is right about ripper owens, (sorry ripper if you read this), theres only one rob halford. preist just didn't have the mojo without rob!
Yeah what the song is about is pretty cool I agree...I like how they did that on One Shot At Glory. The sound of it and structure doesn't agree with me I guess...too syn and for me too much like Out In The Cold was for Turbo...what I meant by stabbing at the past.
Anyways haven't heard much off Nostradamus except for the title cut...anyone hear more?
Dude I was just gonna say...how much did you smoke....the was the last one. Must be good stuff! I like how they included a lot of their past with in the songs...kinda a homage to themselves and to the us...the fans!
The best song is: Johnny B. Good. Why? Because I've heard it 100's of times before by different artists but nobody, nobody, plays it like Judas Priest! It's Ass Kick'in!
The worst song: Painkiller. Why? I don't like any artists songs that haven't enough melody and beat . You know...it's just noise.
My Favorite Priest songs: JBG - Metal Gods - Desert Plains - The Rage - Devil's Child - Bloodstone - Green Manalishi - Grinder - Blood Red Skies - Electric Eye - Turbo Lover - You Got Another Thing Coming and Living After Midnight.
