I am sick of people comparing every Priest album to Painkiller.

Painkiller is not overdone at all.. It's one of the greatest heavy metal records of all time.

Just kill this thread already, I do not know what was wrong with me when I created it.

Well we can compare albums, because they are performed by the same group and written by the same composers. I doubt if Priest (or another band) would want a bunch of sad fanboys/girls brown nosing everything they released and never ever making critical remark over their releases. I hate fawners and I'm sure they do too.

If anything... Pain Killwr is thought of so much because it was the last album Rob sang with the band for 12 years. I certainly so not hear any complaining about Demonizer with the other singer.. who I thought sucked.

I do not think one should compare albums. granted Turbo and Ram It did not have many great songs as many other albums, but JP still creates the very best in music. It seems that many still live in the old days, or songs. Just as many say the same exact things about Ac\DC's latest album and a few others. It falls upon one's taste in music... and if one can change as the bands music changes in its creating. British Steel is British Steel, and someone would be complaining if JP made the same exact or copied British steel format in every song. It is a hit and miss type deal. If any of us could write or perform better... it would be one of us standing on stage, but apparently we complainers cannot write or perform, nor should they be so judgemental.

Just a ponderance -
is Painkiller the "standard" to be compared to because it was the first to feature Scott ...
who remains Priest's drummer extraordinaire?
So people feel it's "the bar" for the current line-up??

So many people lost "faith" when Turbo came out ... 
and Painkiller not only returned to the driving power Priest was known for BUT it also incorporated current hard rock/metal trandsat the time.

Not sure why ANYONE feels the need to compare albums.
One album isn't supposed to sound like another otherwise you're likely stagnant and not evolving.

If the next cd can be at least 75% as good as Painkiller then it will be a success and destroy-crush Nostradamus.

It's not my favourite JP album, but it's still pretty good. It's superior to Turbo and far far better than Ram It Down. Hell Patrol and Night Crawler are great songs. They need to drop the title track in concert though

After Turbo and Ram it Down, Painkiller offered hope that the Priest could still produce great, hard core metal. Painkiller is a great album made greater by the weakness of previous efforts. For me Priest's greatest moments came in the Stain Class - Defenders of the Faith stretch (ok, slight mistep with POE) Painkiller would have fit well into that period - would have been a great follow up to DOF. It is a Priest classic!

Painkiller is okay, but not MY favourite Priest album. I think it's a little too rough, and I like abums like Sad WIngs of Destiny, Turbo and Nostradamus better. But of course - That's just my opinion. And every Judas Priest album rules. :))

Parchment? Ooooh, look at me, Im so fancy, excuse me while I fly my aeroplane, excuse me while I read my parchments...
The answer to the question you might ask is: yes, Ive been watching Monty Python lately.

We, of course, never had parchments. We had everything chiseled out in marble. I had to lift weights, just so I could read my comic books!
