|Gotta go with "Rocka Rolla" for this one. |
How many times does this album get overlooked & yet when you listen to it there's some really good stuff.
One For The Road is a solid starter, Rocka Rolla is a pretty damn catchy single, Cheater is an excellent little rocker, Never Satisfied is an absolutely underrated Priest classic (now given some true exposure on the Epitaph tour) as is the mighty 8 minute epic that is Run Of The Mill, and even Caviar & Meths is a beautifully played throw-away.
For me The Winter Suite & Dying To Meet You(/Hero Hero) are the weakest tracks, but I can still listen to them with ease.
I've heard many a mention about the poor production, and yes there is an audible hiss, but aside from that I think the sound is just fine, especially for 1974. It's not metal, obviously, but for a debut album, by a band finding it's way it's a definate blues-y in places, rock classic!
There's even a heavier version of Diamonds & Rust on the CD, which certainly rivals the "Sin After Sin" version (& yes, I know it's technically from the "Sad Wings..." sessions).

|Sin After Sin. I love it, I love Priest '70 revolution, I love Simon Phillips. It should be way preferred to British Steel, imho.|

|Point of Entry was the first tour I saw live and is one of the best overall i think. I love all Preist music with Halford singing. |

|....Uh', I mean "my (posts)".|
I'm pretty sure I didn't say anything that should have been banned. I've written far worse in the past.
I don't care, I'm just confused.

| I like Lochness also, it has a killer guitar riff. I think they should open their show with it and have a huge Lochness monster rising behind them ...or maybe Rob Halford could wear a Loch Ness Monster suit ...lmao ..just kidding about the monster stuff but that track is cool.

| Hey Budred and Jimmy, what did you guys do to get your post banned in here? lol|
|[guitardude] Saturday, March 19, 2011 5:37:13 PM|| |
|JD, I agree with you, even thought I had originally said "Hell Bent for Leather", I tend to think to of the bands older material when asked about anything covering their history. I play something off of "AoR" nearly everytime I`m in my car, truck or on my bike!|

|I agree 100% as everybody already knows. While not the very best Priest album,Angel Of Retribution is the most underrated LP in the band's history,but not by far....a few others are right there too...|

|angel of retribution.......people always give props to the classic stuff, and rightfully so, but dont hear much about this album anymore, and i think top to bottom it is nearly perfect|

|How about everyone just drops it eh guy, it's getting silly all this sledging and shit.|

|Good to see you're still lurking in the background Michael. Don't call Brian a pussy, that's sexist and derogatory towards women. Also anyone whose ever come second at anything might take offence toward your comment about him being a loser. As for calling me a nobody, that could be misconstrued, people who don't exist might take offence that you are using their status as a way to insult somebody else.|
