It took me a few listens to really get in to Nostradomus, at first listen I was furious. After listening to AOR for almostr everyday for 3 years I thought we would get a heavier concept album. After a few listens I found that there are some great riffs on the album (Conquest is a good example). Do I like Nostradomus? Yes. Would I like for Priest to do another album just like it? NO.
[Budred] Monday, July 12, 2010 7:40:29 AM 
 I'm going to force myself to listen to Nostradamus to and from work today.
Sometimes when I listen to music I don't like it at first and then after a few listens
it starts sounding better. This album is so unlike anything that Priest has (ever) done
that (maybe) I didn't give it a chance. The first few listens, after about five or six songs
it literally put a pit in my stomach so we'll see. If anyone is interested I'll post again 
tonight to let you know how it went. 
                                                           Peace all!

What do you mean about Turbo being a Priest album? We know it is. It seems the fanboys would wank and fawn over anything Priest released, even if they did a bunch of allah songs calling suicide bombers to a mosque to pray before they blew up some infidels. Priest have fallen very very short of the mark with this album IMO .I'm sure the won't with the next one.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Sunday, July 11, 2010 10:42:25 AM)

I thought  Prophecy,War, Nostradamus and Future Of Mankind were the 4 standouts and I also liked a couple of short/intro tracks like "Awakening" but I hate the song it goes into "Revelations". I also liked Calm Before The Storm intro to Nostradamus.

The rest doesn't settle with me. Nostradamus is a well put together epic album theres no question about that. I'm just jealous of those who can get into it's world because even though I say I would prefer the band to change it's name for the Nostra album,it's still created by JUDAS PRIEST my favorite band of all time so its an awkward situation(sigh) I just wish the album was something that was more up my ally I guess.

Oh, I agree that those that like Nostra are in NO WAY trying to convince those that do. See? There is a difference beween us and fanboy fake Brian: when we think something sucks, we say it. It isn't blindly following the blind. Were that true, someone would have convinced me that Lochness was a decent sond LOOOONG ago. I'll even admit to the cheesy topic of Nostra. However, I am into classical music as well as some of you. The phrasings ARE classical in nature. I have heard many an interview where the guys wanted to do this sort of album and I am happy that they have come to a point in their career where it has come to fruition. Just one man's opinion, nothing more.

Say. J.D. (as I know YOU'LL answer as opposed to fanboy Brian), what are your four songs or so off Nostra? I think you might have posted them before but I forget. Please remind me.

I like metal that pumps you up so much that you want to punch something while listening to it. 
Nostradamus does that for me, but the problem is that it's Rob and the guys I want to punch
for unleashing that upon us. To those who love it, great for you. I'm glad some get enjoyment
out of it. For me it's much to weak. Admittedly I'll listen to music other than metal but when it
comes to Priest I want the music to be heavy. This opinion is solely mine. (Not to be imposed
upon anyone else.)

Long live the Priest and their fans!!!
[Head banger] Sunday, July 11, 2010 12:30:31 PM 
I would agree with that.  I would even argue turbo is closer to the clasic priest sound, particularily if you adjust that sound for the music of the time as Priest tends to do.

With Nostradamus,I don't think that those of us who dislike it are trying to get other people to dislike it. But rather argue that the album in it's entirety is not "Judas Priest's signature sound". Nostradamus,Turbo and Demolition are all the same way,they don't harness the signature sound all the way through and are the only 3 records by the band that astray too far from the bands true sound. Jugulator and Ram It Down are very weak-like and went into left field but at least they didn't go out of the ballpark. 

I don't think Ram It Down is a great Priest album,but with 10 songs on it I can handle 5 of them(Ram It Down,  Heavy Metal,  Come And Get It,  Hard As Iron,  Blood Red Skies)with the other 5 songs blah,but at least its half the album ....with Nostradamus there are 22 or so tracks and I can only handle 4 of them.

But thats irrelevant,the main point here is that the only thing we can agree on is that the Nostradamus album is the most different  "away from Judas Priest" sounding album they have ever done.I just think it was too different sounding to be called a "Judas Priest" album.

Its like the band Emperor with the albums Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk and Equilibrium,they are not "Emperor's signature sound" and too strange to be called an Emperor albums yet to me they are both excellent albums. I would agree that those 2 albums shouldn't of been called "Emperor"  and should of changed the band's name but I still like those records.

This is the same senario with Nostradamus,if I did like the Nostradamus album I would still not consider it "Judas Priest".

Well, if "people are just wankng over this album because it is Priest," why wouldn't that hold true for ALL Priest albums? Songs too for that matter? Turbo was a Priest album last time I checked and I don't think I even own it. LP or cassette if at all. RID on both just because it is autographed. Nope, the theory doesn't hold water.

Sorry that you don't like Nostra. I do. Part because it is Priest? Certainly could be. I am intrigued by it complexity, sophistication and what marks the musical culmination of a band I have adored all my life.

I guess you ran as fast as possible to get it over as fast as possible. I can't think what's worse, running 8 miles or listening to Nostraboruesus! I agree that the length of a song does not back a good record. It's actually what's in it. Death is 7.34.minutes. 7.34 minutes of crap. The the whole of Nostraborues is over 70 minutes. How the hell they only managed make around 15 minutes of it worth listening to is beyond belief. People are only wanking over this because it's A Priest album. If any other band had done it everyone would say it was complete crap. For the most part Nostra is a fat, lazy, overblown, turgid and tedious. I can't believe how a group who have given us so many great albums could have the audacity to foist this on the public. Of course some of you love it and that's fine. I respect their opinions. But I just can't get into Nostra and it's not for want of trying.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Saturday, July 10, 2010 6:11:16 PM)

On a similar note, I HATED Van Hagar. Ripper Era to boot. "Get up" off of Van Hagar was my one song and NOTHING out of Ripper ever thrilled me. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Red Rocker and gave Ripper a real shot, Neither were the Metal God. Plain and simple. I listen to interview after interview and all the band how they wanted to do this sort of album. One mixing flamenco guitar with traditional metal riffs. They did it. Even more they did it in a greater way than the pussy Maiden egotistical style. You know me, you know I am NOT a Maiden-basher. Where Priest did it right, Maiden just plain blew it. 'Nuff said.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Saturday, July 10, 2010 6:31:52 PM)

Yeah thats fair. I know to you its a masterpiece,but its a mellow masterpiece thats for sure lol!  I think that this album would of been better off under a different name than Judas Priest. Maybe they should of put Judas Priest on hold after the Angel Of Retribution album and named the band "Nostradamus" and gave the album another title perhaps I think it would of made more sense,maybe not for the marketing and sales point of view but for the sake of the band's name. I'm not saying that its a bad album for everyone but its just not "Judas Priest" to me,at least 80% of it isn't but I respect your love for the album.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Saturday, July 10, 2010 6:11:16 PM)

I wholeheartedly disagree. Nostra shows whats it takes to make an epic HM album. It is NOT that Maiden crap, 10 minute songs do not make for a good record. Ran 8 miles to Nosrta last night. Loved every second of it.

Just one man's opinion but I stated it before. Heaven forbid that this be their last album but I would be a happy camper were it so. It is nothing short of  maasterpiece.

Nostradamus is anything but "Judas Priest" and is musically not a "heavy metal" album. Dio's "Magica" is a concept album that is a "heavy metal" album that is done the traditional way done right with so many instruments,Judas Priest should of took a class with Dio as the instructor teaching them how to do such an album. Magica is light years ahead of it's time and of course ahead of Nostradamus by far. This is the best concept album of all time. Hail Dio!

Don't let anyone steer you away from listening to  Nostradamus. It is a great album about a historical figure....everyone wants Painkiller, can't do the same thing over and over, it would all sound the same!   NOSTRADAMUS=MASTERPIECE

I have just heard the album for the first time, all the way through, and i have to say it is AWESOME!  I know its a bit of a departure from some of their more traditional stuff, but i love it - they go through so many musical styles, and Rob Halford's vocal range is as amazing as ever.  I think I will be listening to it a lot more.
