I find that NOSTRADAMUS gets better everytime I listen to it.  I admit, I was disappointed when I first bought it.  However, I listen to it more and more.  I describe such as SAD WINGS OF DESTINY thirty years later, and we all know how awesome and psychedellic that album was (and is).  Hats off to the Priest, for delivering quality metal that one can listen to over and over again.

I'm still quite a new Priest fan, because Nostradamus got me into Priest. Disc 2 is better in my own opinion, because it is a lot more serious with good epic songs like Alone, and Future of Mankind, my favourite song by Priest, Nostradamus was the first album I ever bought, and to this day remains my best purchase for cd's, Nostradamus IS the best Priest album to me, and it will never change, unless the new album follows on the same sort of thing but makes it even better (and makes it longer, for some reason Nostradamus feels too short)

Nostradamus is one of the best Judas albums, but I have "weird" taste in Judas.. I also prefer albums like Angel of retribution (which is a pre Nostradamus in some ways), Defender of the faith and Screaming for vengeance. I of course like BS! Nostradamus CD 2 is the better I believe. I am in honesty, a sucker for concept albums; Rush 2112, Queensryche Operation mindcrime etc.

Please Judas, put in a Stockholm date on your Epitaph-tour!

Nostradamus had a strange effect on me.

When I first heard the title track on myspace before its release I felt a rush I'd never experienced from any Priest song and that's the truth I thought it was so powerful and this made me want the album more than anything. Then I heard Visions and I liked that immediately too but still thought Nostradamus was the better track.

Then I went to Download and saw them there where they played Prophecy and Death. I thought Prophecy was a brilliant opener, so heavy with an excellent drum groove and despite naysayers, the lyrics work really well. Death I did like it although I thought it was a bit long but loved the bit in the middle where it turns heavy and I really liked the darkness of the chorus.

Then I returned to see Nostradamus on my doorstep. I stuck it in and let it play from start to finish. At first I was disappointed mainly because I was expecting every song to be as heavy as the title and opening tracks and some of the songs I didn't connect with.

But I listened and listened and the songs started to grow on me little by little and it became my most listened to Priest album and I don't know why. It was strange I would put it in knowing it wasn't my favourite album but I did it anyway and now I absolutely love it. I think if Scott had had that space to be more creative, this album could have been way better as the drums in many songs were pretty straight forward and not very exciting although his use of space is outstanding especially in the track, 'Alone'.

It's a weird balance of good and bad I think and this is me being honest with this album. I think pros go to: Halford's voice, Glenn and KK's soloing and the use of effects and synth to create something unique. Unfortunately I think the drumming lets it down though that is no fault of Scott, he just didn't have a lot to work with.

Some of the riffs I think are magnificent and the best go to, Prophecy, Nostramdamus, Death (middle section and chorus), Persecution and Future of Mankind. But some are just more straight forward progressions.

I think overall it is a good album with some great tracks and average tracks maybe more of the latter. But I still pop it in and skip to the ones I think are true Priest classics.

It gets better every time I listen.  Lie down in complete darkness with the headphones on and crank will feel every note throughout your entire body as it possess you...

Even though, the 'so called streak' people have referred to it as has been over for 14 months, i still spin it at least once a week! I had the opportunity to speak to Rob via telephone a few months ago on a radio show, and he was glad to hear i still listen, and that my metal loving' dog still listens! I love this record and it will never be permanently filed away! Cheers everyone!

As a Priest fan since '78 I state IMNSHO that Nostradamus is the most fully realized album Priest have ever done.
  I'm not calling it the best or my favorite but, it's great and It's everything It should be . A masterpiece.

Thank you Zombi. Of course you're welcome in Terni, Italy. We have not a famous university but we are famous for producing 'STEEL'. Italian Steel, not British, but always steel, and of course I'm working with it, selling it world wide. It's strange but we are all 'Steelers'.
I don't think JP will come here, but maybe Rome, Florence, Milan...

I never judge the quality of an album by it's sales. Shania Twain Come On Over sold shedloads and it's crap

...and I want Judas Priest to come back in Italy. But in case they will not come in Italy but will come in Cambridge, do you have any place for me ? On the contrary there's a placew for you here. But do not say to my wife.

Nostradamus made #9 in U.S., first time they cracked the top10 in America!

Great Album.
Just to demonstrate that they can be very heavy, very epic, very symphonic, very pop, thay can do everything and whatever they do it's the best.
That's right?
"Nella tentazione, cercando la gloria, il prezzo da pagare, è la caduta dell'uomo" but thet will never fall down.

Nostradamus was sold preety well in coparision to other record as it reached 11 postition in list of best selling album in GB (only 2 other records had had better place) It was also very popular around the world  

It is not bad album, but it's different from "classic" Priest I thing it's good that they tried to change something and still want to develope
[Budred] Monday, July 12, 2010 9:45:53 PM 
I tried to listen with an open mind. I just can't get into it. Too mellow, too symphonic.
I'm glad for Priest that people are into it but it's just not for me. Rob's singing style leaves a little
to be desired. Not enough highs, kind of boring. 
Does anyone know how this album compares to average sales of other Priest lp's.(just curious)

Long live the Priest and all their fans!!!
