I don't have a favorite yet, but I like 'Alone' alot!

Yeah it's been a good while! How thing's going? Just got back from Niagara Falls last week after the Maiden show in Cleveland. That f*#kin' rocked! The Falls was great but the city around it looks like it was bombed!! LOL!! I can't believe it. It was awesome growing up there. If the Casino wasn't there, nobody else would be either. Anyway, glad to be back on the board here. Nostradamus is great!! Are you going to Molson Center to see them? I'm going to the Pittsburgh show...

Spapad: I agree. "Alone" is my favorite song on the album.

Before I bought and listened to Nostradamus, I checked some early reviews.  Some good, some not so good.   Last night, I played it for the first time, and from beginning to end, and I cranked it baby.  Normally, it takes me a few times of playing the whole cd to really start to enjoy it.  But not this time.  This cd is spectacular.  The sound is huge.   There is so much going on, you just sit there and say to yourself that no other metal band, and very few bands in general, have put together such a surrounding wall of music on one cd.  I can't believe some of the bad reviews out there.  One moron even referred to mediocre albums like Hell Bent and British Steel.  That goes to show you how ridiculous some people are, to call those two classics mediocre.  I will say, this album is not like anything they have ever done.  Doesn't sound anything like SWOD.  The sound is much "thicker" and heavier here.  Lost Love is Before The Dawn taken to a new level.  A truly beautiful song.   I could go on and on.  Give it a chance, you'll see.  Judge for yourself and do not listen to any reviews at all!

Help! I have developed a nervous twitch. I am unable to keep my finger from hitting the repeat button at the end of Alone! I know there is great music to follow but my finger just keeps hitting repeat. Hopefully it's not a permanent condition?

Dare I say this is the best Priest album to date?

After listening to Nostradamus many times, I think it's a very good album. I'd be lying if I said every song grabs me or that I think it's a masterpiece. But I really appreciate Priest trying something different and using new sounds. I like the moody, gothic sounds, the mid-tempo, and Halford's restrained voice--gives the album some soul. "Alone" is my favorite, and I also like "War," "Conquest," "Persecution," and "Exiled." I will add these 5 to my Priest favorites.

This record make feel PROUD about my favorite band. It's a fucking Masterpice, It's the way I see it. Nostradamus is a long travel to past,  I mean the prophet's life and 70's Priest, reminds Sin after Sin or SWOD, guess what!!, I knew this would happening, there was not way to make a conceptual album about Nostradamus. Rob' vocal range is low but majestic, almost opheratic.., I loved Nostradamus, I hope that band will performing entire it in this tour, Judas, I'm Looking forward the gig in Santiago, Chile!!...

Nostradamus is an amazing work of art. Who could have ever imagined so many musical effects and rich orchestral movements mixed with heavy metal guitars. I am completely blown is a metal masterpiece- of epic proportions.

I think it would be awesome to make this album into a feature length film, not unlike Pink Floyd's "The Wall", but bigger and heavier!!

I may not have the cd. But I did hear  to most of the songs from the cd. It's not that hard to figure out. You don't have to listen to the whole cd from begining to end to get a feel for it. It sounds like  the old stuff.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by GRINDER * from Friday, June 20, 2008 11:04:42 AM)

Nostradamus it's an album to listen to from the beginning to the end, you can't speak about a single song because one"bring" you to the other.
To me it's a melodic and powerfull album.

But Dio only stays within and has never gone as high as Halford has been known for.  They are simply not the same class of singer.  Halford's got more in common with Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate with regards to vocal abilities than he does with Ronnie James Dio.

I haven't got the cd yet. But I am listening to some of the songs from youtube.  I think that Priest just went back to the old style.  If you haven't been a fan for long time you probably won't  {well I shouldn't say won't} but will have a hard time with the new cd.   That's  the style they started with. I like what I am hearing. Just reminds me of the old days. If you think of the song Dreamer Deceiver, That's what the new cd reminds me of. { I am listening to the song Alone} Alone has a lot of elements of Dreamer Deceiver. But this is just my opinion. I love the old stuff. Also Epitaph, comes to mind.  If you havent heard the old stuff, you should go and listen to it. You'll find the it sounds similar. So they aren't really doing anything that is new to them. Most of the young fans aren't familiar with the old stuff. So they are going to question it. The use of a piano, is nothing new or acoustic guitars.

Thanks MG.......I suppose my ever-so-slowly-receding hairline and more gray may give me away, but I still think of myself as young.  I am definitely not my dad at 40.  (He never liked Priest or metal, the poor sap, but that was his loss.)  Whereabouts in MT are you?
