Well if you have i-tunes or something similar you could always edit yourself and take the ballads out if you don't like them.  For me I love them and think it creates a great atmosphere.  I don't see why having the ballads there is such a big deal for people when there are some great rocking tunes too.  With today's technology there's just no excuse for people to not like something because of a few songs which can so easily be taken out of their song lists. For me every single song is on my lists and will remain there.

Have never got on with Turbo - didn't like it when it was released (hated the multi-coloured, stud-less clothes & big hair), and still only listen to Turbo Lover from it. As for Demolition, I think it suffered from too many tracks (just as Nostradamus does too).

My advice for both albums is to edit them down to a leaner, meaner & more rocking version.

For Demolition, try:

1. One On One
2. Hell Is Home
3. Devil Digger
4. Bloodsuckers
5. In Between
6. Feed On Me
7. Subterfuge
8. Lost & Found

...and for Nostradamus:

1. Dawn Of Creation
2. Prophecy
3. Awakening
4. Revelations
5. Sands Of Time
6. Pestilence & Plague
7. Death
8. Peace
9. Conquest
10. Persecution
11. Alone
12. Shadows In The Flame
13. Visions
14. Calm Before The Storm
15. Nostradamus
16. Future Of Mankind

...and you might see different albums.

I'm sure that once the band have got this concept thing out of their system they'll return with a full on "Painkiller-esq" follow-up.

So Judas Priest won't be slowing down anytime soon, then?"  

Well,to be honest......with the new album "Nostradamus",I think that they have slowed down as about as slow as they could possibly get! lol!
I mean was it really needed to put approx. 10 ballads on the album?? I know that some of these are only about 2 plus minutes long....but still there are about 7 full blown tracks that are ballads.....even the 70's Priest did not do that.....I think that they got way to carried away in the studio....maybe they forgot they were creating a "metal" album and thought they were producing a movie??? I don't know,but approx. 107 minutes of soft slow balladish material was not needed to express Nostradamus and his life experiences........if they are expressing his life through this format...then his life must of put alot of people to sleep! lol! 

I also think that the song Nostradamus was the best song on this album,nothing on this album comes close to this quality of song........if all tracks were like this one and the album was reduced to about 10/11 tracks with maybe 2 ballads,then this album would of turned out much better in my opinion,..but hey. 

I don't know why Judas Priest have always felt like they have to try and change "metal" and update it's sound every 5 years or so.......Turbo....Demolition...and Nostradamus are the 3 albums where the band left it's roots to far back behind.

Look at Angel Of is a "Heavy Metal" album like "Screaming For Vengeance/Defenders Of The Faith/Painkiller era....but does not sound like them,or did not copy them....and has its own original sound...and stays within the ballpark of heavy metal....I think the band went to far into trying to make something "different".  I don't want something "different"......I wanted "JUDAS PRIEST" cranking out traditional british heavy metal,but thats just my opinion.

GLENN: "For me it all comes down to enthusiasm. As long as we have that enthusiasm and that love for metal we'll carry on doing this. Only when that disappears, we'll think about bringing the curtain down."
"What's really telling is that not only are we still making music and making new fans, but we're still going to new places all the time as well. We're still covering new ground physically and musically with every year that passes, and that's a great thing. To me, this doesn't even feel like we're close to the end. Not by a long shot."

Amen to that, brother!
