Super favorite album, Defenders of the Faith.  It was also my first intro to Priest.  I was scarred forever.  (But also love Sad Wings, Screaming, Nostradamus, and everything else they do!)  Least favorite, but will listen to it occasionally, is Turbo.  I'm trying to collect the Re-masters cds (I have all the vinyl, which I can't play due to a lack of a working player,) and just got Turbo in the mail.  Holy crap.  I can't even describe the cheesy lyrics.  And I seriously can't listen to all of Parental Guidance.  I tried, but it!!!  Yes I know it was "the era", but COME ON.  I think if hey had written those songs for some other american hair metal band, they might have been somewhat successful, but this didn't fit Priest at all.  I like Turbo Lover and some other assorted songs, but there are some un-Priest-like ones on there.  But for what's it worth, I discovered a new one on there, which is the bonus track All Fired Up.  A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!  Priest's 'Ace of Spades'.  What a great little gem!  I can't stop listening to it!  I'd love to hear it live.

LOL!!!!! That is Hilarious!!!!! Sad, but very funny!!!! We don't need no, no no, parental guidance here! Ha!!!!!!!

Geez, I don't know which ones I love the most... I like DOTF, SFV, RR, SWOD, all of them (I don't really like the Ripper albums much)

You guys are too much!!!   I can't stand Parental Guid...I can't even finish typing the name...

Turbo is by far my least favorite Priest album.  I can handle listening to most if it if my daughter's around because she's 19 and has liked it since she first heard least it's Priest, right?!  But with songs like "the one I will not name", "Private Property" and "Wild Nights..." AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH  I wanna pull my freaking hair out!!!!  I was too old at the time of it's release to relate to most of it, but I certainly don't blame the younger fans who do in fact like it!!!

Screaming for Vengeance is definitley my all-time favorite Priest release.  Other's such as HBFL and British Steel are very close behind as they were my intro to Priest (HBFL first), but SFV came after POE and I was sooooo ready for more Metal and the mighty Priest delivered!!!  Cuts like "Riding on the Wind", "Bloodstone" , "Fever" and "Devils Child" all have great grooves to them..."SFV", the title track, WOW!!!!  In 1982 no less!!!  Too bad we had to wait 'til "Painkiller" to get another like that!!  A true classic and the epitomy of Classic Heavy Metal Music!!!

I'm sure Dave Holland doesn't like it when parents are around. Maybe he wrote Parental Guidance.

I'm listening to Turbo right now. Its on Parenta Guidance actually.

I love Turbo haha. Its so cheesy its good.
[Mr. Dave Genocide] Thursday, November 19, 2009 12:54:03 PM 
Hahaha, ya got me there. Parental Guidance is by far their worst song ever writen.  And yes, Turbo was a very weak album for them in the '80s, where they were high atop the Metal kingdom at the time.  Why release an album like Turbo when you're that successful, who knows.  And then to try and go back to speed with Dave Holland when he's starting to faulter is beyond me, so THANK YOU SCOTT TRAVIS for coming to Priest in '89 and subsequently putting the PAIN in Painkiller and putting Priest back on top!  But seriously, no more mentioning Parental Guidance, please! I can't take it! 

But take this:

(For some reason, everytime I try to put a video from YouTube on here it doesn't wanna show up!)

To me,Ram It Down was better than Turbo-the band's worst album of all,at least Ram It Down didn't have a track as cheesey as "Parental Guidance" lol! Love Zone,I'm A Rocker,Johnny B.Goode,Love You To Death and Monsters Of Rock were not good tracks but they were not as bad as Parental Guidance yuk! I would say that Parental Guidance is the WORST song ever written by Judas Priest and it just so happens that its also off of the worst album LOL Dave!!!!!!!   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by Mr. Dave Genocide from Wednesday, November 18, 2009 11:22:07 PM)

Let me first say I need to start coming on more often cos I've been slacking on it a lot!

Anyways, Let me just say that my first introduction to JP was Unleashed In The East.  That album (back when I was 5) was phenominal and I enjoyed the hell outta that album.  Then along came Painkiller and that album is my absolute favourite album.  I believe that one album really pinpoints the reaf fire and emotion inside Judas Priest (besides Stained Class and Screaming For Vengeance).  13 years later, 20 concerts later (from 2004 - present), I'll never forget the mighty Metal Gods!

To say my least favourite album, excluding the Ripper era, definitely has to be Ram It Down.  I'm sorry, the drum machine kills it.  Myself, being a drummer, I can cover every single track on that album! (Then again, Scott is my main drumming influence and he could nail those songs as well!)  It was sad that the drum machines were brought in, but it was known (as you view videos from the '88 tour) that Dave didn't have all the energy the rest of the band had, which in turn brought in the "Machine Man" himself Scott Travis and Painkiller was born, along with Angel Of Retribution and Nostradamus.

I really love to light up a MacIntosh Spice Yankee Candle and listen to the ballads of Nostradamus.
[Becks] Saturday, October 31, 2009 9:46:24 PM 
Ooooh decisions decisions!
Favourite - Hard choice, but I will go with Screaming for Vengeance. This album was my introduction to Priest, and it was like an awesome slap in the face with a heavy metal stick LOL!!!! I love every song on this album, no joking, it's just fantastic.
Least Favourite - Not counting Ripper Era in this, I'd say a tie between Rocka Rolla and Turbo. I still like both, just not as much as the others. Rocka Rolla cos, being their first album, for me anyways it was not very polished for lack of a better word (I think this is common for debuts). Turbo, cos it is super cheesy LOL!!! If I am in the right mood I will listen to it, but yeah, absolutely not their best album.

Lets discuss and give some reasons to back up your opinions and statements.

Whats your favorite album? Why? Least Favorite Album? Why?

Well I guess my favorite album would be Painkiller for sure. It was my introduction to metal. The entire album is just.... metal... the entire time. Which is sort of strange because I love the ballads just as much as the mid paced songs and speed metal oriented songs. Painkiller is just 100% metal all the through. To me its there peak as musicians, though I think Nostradamus is there "Masterpiece". Both have something different to offer. But Painkiller is just my favorite hands done.

As for my least favorite? I imagine it'd be something by the Ripper era. I haven't heard Demolition yet but I haven't heard exactly thrilling reviews of it. Jugulator does have some great songs on it, lyrics aside. Call me a fanboy I suppose because I generally do like everything Priest does. Blame that on me liking almost every style of music ever created though.

But since I gotta pick, either Turbo or something from the Ripper era. I like them, just not as much as say Screaming for Vengeance, Painkiller, or Nostradamus.
