My favorite band and excited to see them live Nov 1.

Just the definition of heavy metal.

Top three albums for me would be SFV, Defenders and Painkiller.

I also think that Ripper did an outstanding job filling Robs shoes.  What a voice and I would say that 98 Live Meltdown is my all time fav live album.

This is just one bad ass song. Studio version, a live version and one of Ripper doin it justice too for good measure.  8)

I certainly don't require another live Judas Priest package, but for those so inclined.

What can I say? The significance of Judas Priest is undeniable. Their rightful place in hard rock history is secured.

Still one of the best in the business. I may have to pick this up just to have it. I guess you can never have enough live Priest.

I grew up seeing a few Judas Priest videos on Much Music. Turbo Lover was one of the tunes my local roller rink played as the "speed skate" (along with Dead or Alive's You Spin Me Round) and I thought it was baddest tune around.

For whatever reason, I've never been a huge fan of Judas Priest, but I at least have their Greatest Hits CD. I really dig Beyond the Realms of Death, Victim of Changes (one of those times the live version is WAY better than the studio version) and I've always had a soft spot for their version of Johnny Be Goode.

Also, for those who haven't seen the documentary "Dream Deceivers" about the two kids who shot themselves, it's pretty powerful stuff.
That Man/Machine Imperfection guy didn't post too much, but he was pretty much always right.

Totally agree on Turbo, I don't know why that album got dissed so bad. It was just a product of that time frame. I loved Turbo lover, Locked In, Out In The Cold and Reckless and kinda dug the guitar synthesizer stuff or whatever they were using. That tour was bad ass too and I liked the somewhat different takes on the sound of that Priest Live album from that tour. The costumes were very cheesy and they're mtv persona at the time but it was par for the course mid eighties. Private Property and Parental Guidance were decent songs also, but the aforementioned four tracks I thought were awesome.

Yeah Realms Of Death and Victim of Changes are classics.

I think it was following the times... They kind of changed the look slightly like a lot of bands did at that time, a little more commercial sounding and more exposure on MTV as a result. Not one of my favorites but the two follow ups to that were much better...Ram It Down and of course Painkiller.
