Each to their own. For me Brittish Steel is midrange in comparison to other albums they've released. It is disappointing comparing it to the albums that came before, but you can't deny the importance of it for JP's long existance.
On another note Maiden fanbois are frustrating.

Personally, as I was very impressed with the high level of technical ability displayed on the two previous albums, British Steel was quite a disappointment for me.
After Les Binks left, the direction the band took was less focused and more commercial. I don't think they reallly recovered until Scott Travis came onboard.

"I think you could quite reliably make a case for 'United' influencing the thrash genre"
Yeah sure, and Before the Dawn had a big influence on the black metal genre...

Find the last one hilarious. Writes about how overrated he thinks British Steel is, and then he recommends, what I think might be the most overrated heavy metal album ever, The Number of the Beast. It has 3 great tracks: Title Track, Children of the Damned and Hallowed be thy Name. The Prisoner and Total Eclipse are okay, the rest sucks, with Gangland being contender for the worst Maiden song ever. Hardly a masterpiece. British Steel on the other hand doesn't have a bad track, even though I have to admit, that i'm not a fan of You don't have to be old to be wise.
British Steel is not my favorite Judas Priest album, not even in my top 5, but it is still an amazing album.

       BRITISH STEEL album is amazing too. I love every song from this album also.
                A true fan loves every JUDAS PRIEST album.

            I ignore the negative opinions.
            I don't care other members' or readers' problems, because this is a MUSIC SITE and not a matesearcher forum.

                   I've received some complaints about the "true fan" phrase.
       No problem ladies and gentlemen!  I' ll use the "TRUE JUDAS PRIEST FAN" phrase!
         (Because my heart is made of "butter" and i can change.)

                        I RESPECT EVERY TRUE JUDAS PRIEST FAN !

WTF! British Steel was a Kick Azz album those people are crazy! British Steel disappointed 
you blah blah blah whine all you want but British Steel had some of the best Priest songs ever
like Breaking The Law, Living After Midnight, Grinder and, so much more.
It's probably one of my fav. Priest albums.
Screw anyone that says British Steel was a suck fest.

how can anyone say this is their weakest album? Its an opinion I guess and eveyone has one. It just surprises me to hear that said about BRITISH STEEL. Usually you would hear that said about the glam-inspired TURBO.

I finally made the effort to read the whole post. (mistake)
I get it now. Freakin' Maiden fan. It's only opinion so anyone can rip
"British Steel", it's the "Their weakest album"  comment that makes me laugh.
To each his own I guess.

My first Priest album was "Hell Bent for Leather " then "Unleashed" and after that "British Steel" and it was a bit of a disappointment following the excellent "Unleashed In The East"(studio). HA!

Hello - Yes, I was a bit shocked by this discussion - I've got to agree though that the band plays all the songs so much better now - it's like now they actually sound how they're supposed to  and I think that has a lot to do with Scott being so awesome.
Also - The Rage = Stone Cold Classic!
[J.D. DIAMOND] Friday, June 17, 2011 4:03:33 AM 
Our own Hellrider hates the Screaming For Vengeance album or likes one song from it which still baffles my brian so I suppose this should be easier.

 I have to say review #1 has a point. It's really not the album I like best either. But different people have different opinions and it's good to read reviews of people who don't have a jaded view of this album. 
[jimmyjames] Thursday, June 16, 2011 4:30:58 PM 
Exactly. United is not in any way thrash. Maybe Rapid Fire and Steeler but not United. Also if someone thinks Living After Midnight is the stand out track they have no business writing articles or even making passing comments on anything to do with metal. You can't really take Amazon reviews seriously though.

Yeah, I thought "Exciter" is the song often given the credit for influencing Thrash... plus I can see "Rapid Fire" getting a nod too, but "United"!?

fine and all, everyone can have an opinion. 

how the fuck did United influence the thrash genre?

Their weakest album? Are you even serious?

Whatever floats their boats.
