I really didn't want to post here as doing so commits me to this list.  I feel the need to add that it is really hard for me to rate their albums against each other as they are all so diverse from each other and as a result I have differing memories attached to each of them.

1  Hell Bent For Leather (Killing Machine)
    This album is what turned me on to Priest!!  '79 was not ready for this release and neither was I!!! 

2  Sad Wings Of Destiny
    After hearing HBFL, I rushed out to find other albums from Priest and this one was next.  Loved every song!!!

3  Screamin' For Vengeance
    A complete album of Metal at it's finest!!!

4  British Steel
    What more could possibly be said that hasn't been said already?  I believe Metal's first true album!!!

5  Painkiller
    Couldn't have come at a better time.  Trial over with and full of rage, and I was so tired of Nirvana and the Seattle scene already.  I needed Metal and the GODS delivered!!!

Screaming 4 Vengeance--I like every song on this album
British Steel--the 1 that started it all
Sad Wings Of Destiny--Dreamer /Deceiver to this day sends chills down my spine
Painkiller--Rob's raw power in his vocals on Painkiller. Touch Of Evil. & Between The Hammer & The Anvil
Sin After Sin--just because

Screaming For Vengeance - First Priest album i brought - Metal Gods, Devils Child, Riding on the wind...

Stained Class - Instant Classic.... I love this album! I want to be buried with a copy of it when i die cos if Heaven / Hell doesn't have a copy.. i wanna make sure i do.

Sin After Sin - So 70's, So Priest..... so ahhhhhhh!  (The most underrated too..)

Painkiller - How could this NOT be in the top 5... every song on this album oozes raw energy, raw metal. 

Hell Bent For Leather / Killing Machine - What's not to love about this one?... Burnin' up, Running wild, Killing Machine... F*ck yeah!

I can't really say due to the fact that I loved Priest in the 70s, 80s (including Painkiller) and since their reunion. 

I'll put it the other way I don't listen to Turbo and Point Of Entry without skipping some of the songs...

I have tried many times to rate the Priest albums or put them in order of how much I like them, but I really can't.  I love them all too much and they all convey such different moods and emotions and express different things artistically that comparing any two Priest album is somewhat like apples to oranges to me.  So I will tell you that the albums that got me into Judas Priest and the ones that are the reasons why I love the band so much are Stained Class, Sin After Sin, Sad Wings of Destiny, Defenders of the Faith, and Screaming for Vengeance.  Perhaps the one thing I owe my Fanaticism the most to, however, is the Live Vengeance '82 dvd that has kicked my ass over and over again since I bought it, and inspired me to get all the Priest albums.
