|I think every song on Firepower is excellent. Judas Priest really created a classic album here.|

|Judas Priest pop up store in New York looks like a mini museum,definitely cool stuff in there of the bands for sure. Love the new album... I think it holds up to past albums,I really do. |
Love the way this describes the track Guardians:
Firepower’s most surprising moments come during its centerpiece, the towering duo made up of “Guardians” and “Rising from Ruins.” An understated piano interlude builds to Priest marching gallantly to mountain-top peaks, standing triumphantly over their metal legacy. They traverse trade-off solo jungles and navigate a labyrinthine performance from Travis to a place utterly divorced from the song’s somber, militaristic start.

|Mimicry (mimic) is the only way I have ever known it termed when a guitar imitates the vocals. Immediate example off this album: the end of "Flame Thrower."|

|happy so far with this disk. missing one thing, not sure if that was a kk thing or what,Priest always used to have some songs where the guitars would imitate the vocals for sections. Anyone know what that is called?|
Anyway, its not in my top 5 yet, but like it

|Buying 5 CDs was not so much a point of what to do with the cds but rather excited to see album sales in the first week results to be record breaking. I bought 10 A.O.R. cds at that time and kept 2 gave away the rest I actually don't think I have anymore. R.O.S. I bought 4 cds ...kept one for collection,girlfriend and one I listen to,lend to people and gave one away ... I'll end up giving 2 Firepower cds to someone who'll dig it.But girlfriend has one and one goes in my CD collection,the other I'm jsming on.|
Glenn plays/shares solos on 6 tracks: Necromancer,Children Of The Sun,Rising From Ruins,Flamethrower,No Surrender,Sea of Red. Does Glenn Play the solos on Never The Heroes?

|I was just supporting the band so I bought 2 extra copies than I normally would . Man I would love to see your collection that's for sure.,thumbs up. The album is excellent |

| Why not just jump right in and buy an autographed LP? Buy ONE deluxe CD in advance (man, coming DSL?! Will take AGES to get here..wonder if my signed LP from the UK will arrive before the swag from Texas?) and download when it goes live like the rest of us? What did you ever do with 10 AOR CDs?! HAAA!!! I may buy the same Priest recording many a time but at least I have SOME sort of difference. Sure, playable one, collectable one, autographed one, picture discs, CDs, cassettes, autographed...|
"Heart-warming." Nicely put there. I'd agree with that one. Also certainly say "different" but, at the same time, unmistakably, Judas Priest! Blessed be the Metal Gods! I am not worthy!

|Dude YES! I bought 10 cds of Angel Of Retribution in 2005 lol Yes guido I wasn't listening to the album but more panicked that I wasn't immediately hearing Glenn's solos cause that's what I've done for so long bro,I didn't listen to it properly and spoke to soon out of frustration and I was "butthurt" for the wrong reasons. |
Man but he does play solos on 6 tracks from what my ears are hearing and it's fucking utterly amazing he's played all those rhythms and the solos he plays,every Priest record is so DIFFERENT from one another like you've known from day one of course and this one is up there with the best albums for sure.
And Ritchie Faulkner? Holy shit he is so excellent especially on this album it's mind blowing,and the solos Glenn plays are so honest with passion and feeling it's just heart warming. I fucking love this record man,Necromancer is my FAVORITE track off the album!

|Man...here I skip over "Necromancer." Awesome tune as well!!! What PUNCH! When the guitars take off? Ian and Scotty thumping away as they do it? |
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Saturday, March 10, 2018 1:04:08 AM|| |
|Fuckin A This album is KICK ASS ALL THE WAY THRU!!! Every track"EVERY" TRACK kicks ass QUALITY|
. Even if Glenn did just song writing and rhythms and Ritchie played all solos it STILL would kick ass(he plays solos on 6 tracks from what Im hearing)
I was so wrong and was butt hurt for the wrong reasons and after listening to the record on the computer last night by this morning I was so excited I went down town to a place called Silver Platters and bought 5 CDs!!!!
Yep one for me,my girlfriend one for collection and 2 for idk yet (lol) but bought 5 cost $66 and change ... this album is amazing it really is man it could be ranked 5th,6th,7th best of course up to our opinions but still....
I get it if someone can't listen because of K.K and Glenn's old school style isn't present or I could agree with someone who thinks it's thier best of all time or somewhere inbetween... what ever the case I'm reading 95% maybe more who love this album so they did something right.

|I am just stuck on how many songs I love on this recording! One rolls into another. Flame Thrower to Spectre to Tratitor's Gate to No Surrender? Helluva run right there! DAYUM! Firepower to Lightning Strike to Evil Never Dies to Never the Heroes? |
I think this is outstanding. Better than I could have hoped. In a day when I am scrounging to find what I think is quality metal? Leave it to Priest to kick the door down yet again. I fucking LOVE it!

|I think Glenn plays solos on 5 tracks is what I think at least shared with Ritchie..... the album is much much better than what I gave it credit for last night.... this is excellent and definitely rates higher than #12 in thier discography..... definitely in thier top 6 or 7 albums thumbs wayyy up|
|[Shadownight] Friday, March 09, 2018 1:53:08 PM|| |
NP: Never the heroes (I've already lost count of how many times I put the disk)
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Friday, March 09, 2018 3:34:50 AM|| |
|I think I have to let go of my cravings for his lead work and focus on the songs instead. |
After a few weeks or so I need help with finding other Glenn solos,I think he has a solo in Flamethrower but its hard to tell,I thought he played the second half of Firepower solo only to see a video of Ritchie playing the entire solo so let me know if he has more than one solo but right now Im very happy to hear this album!
