|Also.....I'd like to state that Beggining Of The End track #13 on ROS is actually not bad! I am not too into ballads but this track is "EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS NIGHT COMES DOWN FROM DOTF" IMO. ....I actually don't like "NIGHT COMES DOWN" but thought I'd compare it cause so many fans DO like it....I think BOTE is actually better really......I now don't mind this track.....the only track I do not like on ROS is #9 " Metallizer".....I do not like the chorus or the solos....so I don't like the track...When Vail first heard it she gave it a 'meh'.....I've always agreed...... They could of left it off ....the 12 other tracks are absolute GOLD IMO. |

|I hear ya...I have Rocka Rolla over some elite LPs too,its because of those same reasons you explained by putting Turbo ahead of BS....1986 was a great year for me I was 16 but the Turbo album let all the air out of the rest of the year for me back then lol. You....totally different experience.....Guido too regarding the Turbo LP......Lately (2014-2016) has been the WORST TIME OF MY LIFE hands down....yet Redeemer Of Souls is really the only thing that saves my soul.|
Vail says ROS should be amongst the strongest...you have it rated #6 all time and I love it! I have it rated #4....Ian Hill has it rated #1 his favorite..... Rob and Glenn said its specits every bit as special as SFV and DOTF..... It really proves this album is HIGH QUALITY JP.

|These would be my picks and mine only |
JD said it best , everyone hears it different, which makes for a fantastic contrast in tastes for all that love the Priest and I have said in the past , I have memories attached much stronger to some albums more than others . hence Turbo being ahead of British Steel , cant wait to see more opinions Cheers Guys and Gals

|Sin After Sin and Stained Class are neck-in-neck as far as songwriting quality and music composition goes, but Exciter, Stained Class (the song) and Beyond the Realms of Death are what give Stained Class the edge for me, especially with regards to the themes. Tone and atmosphere-wise it's the same - clinical and razor-sharp, doesn't mess around. After the foggy lugubriousness of Sin After Sin, Stained Class gives you a good slap in the face. Lyric, speed and tone-wise, the latter is stronger. A bit more metal, if you will.|
Still, though, my thing. Doesn't mean that I don't love Sin After Sin. Like you, I love its overall tone and its gloominess (with a glint of hope...Last Rose of Summer).

|@vail ......Stained Class is probly the better album to most,I get that...... but Sin After Sin harnesses a DARK melancholy atmosphere of sombre hyms that's got a coating of stunning doomsday feelings produced by Sin After Sin's sound. Its almost undescribable.|

|"CRITICS CRITICS - ALL THE TIME THE PRESENT CRITICS!!" words by Rob Halford 1990.
HAAAA!! WHAT FOR FAKE FUCK FANS! -OR FUCK FAKE FANS? ANYWAY!!
YOU CAN CHOOSE - THEY WILL BE ALWAYS THE SAME!|
|[Vaillant 3.0] Wednesday, June 08, 2016 10:18:21 PM|| |
|Ah. You thought the same as I did - ROS should definitely be among the "strongest" (and it is DEFINITELY stronger than freakin' Turbo!). Also, Stained Class is stronger than Sin After Sin, IMO.|
Loudwire also has Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath versions of this album-ranking article...thing. Anyone wanna looksie, lemme know!

|From weakest to strongest:|
Ram It Down
Point Of Entry
Sin After Sin
Angel Of Retribution
Defenders Of The Faith
Redeemer Of Souls
Screaming For Vengeance
Sad Wings Of Destiny
We all hear things differently... I get that,but to have Turbo over Redeemer Of Souls?
Locked In,Private Property,Parental Guidance,Hot For Love better than Halls Of Valhalla-
Sword Of Damocles,Secrets Of The Dead,Battle Cry? Lol
No....not a chance in hell. "THAT" is hilarious.
They even have Rocka Rolla over Redeemer Of Souls? I LOVE Rocka Rolla,but there's no way
Its better than Redeemer Of Souls,lol not a chance in a world wide poll!
I actually yoyo back and forth rotating British Steel,Sad Wings Of Destiny and Screaming For Vengeance as #1. So I had to force them apart. They have DOTF as #1 ......that's cool with me
as its a worthy choice.
But what's funny is that here in Washington State (Seattle area) back in the
day SFV always was one tiny step better than DOTF in many fans opinions and even now I can't
find anyone who says otherwise up here...everyone I've asked says SFV but only nearly ect... but
Everywhere else outside here its 100% opposite.... Its ALWAYS DOTF over SFV. Interesting.

| @JD IMO some strange choices for rankings |
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Tuesday, June 07, 2016 7:47:37 PM|| |
|@acolytee55.....for some reason I'm having drama trying to see the actual rankings.....could you post their album rankings here so I can have a look? (Or a laugh lol)?|
|[acolyte55] Tuesday, June 07, 2016 3:06:54 PM|| |
|http://loudwire.com/judas-priest-albums-ranked/ let the discussion begin , some weird choices here|
|[acolyte55] Thursday, June 02, 2016 11:36:25 PM|| |
|@JD I think it might be a blast to watch , I only have the one album myself, louder than hell |
|[Vaillant 3.0] Monday, May 30, 2016 1:33:54 AM|| |
|Hmmm...an update has been added to the article below. Makes me wonder what the heck will actually happen.:|
**UPDATE**: Even though Rob Halford's appearance with BABYMETAL was announced via the band's official social media sites late Saturday night, a publicist for the Alternative Press Music Awards could not confirm the JUDAS PRIEST frontman's collaboration with the Japanese group at the event.

|@acolytee55 ...... I read this too on blabbermouth... Manowar are elite heavy metal veterans, I myself haven't been able to fully get into their stuff but no doubt they have made their mark on the heavy metal scene. Live however would be fun to watch I would think. |
Album wise....Im sure most new fans from this nu- generation don't give a flyin' fuck about buying an "ALBUM" because the "ALBUM" is too long for them to listen to.... These stupid kids(and adults too) can't handle listening to an album for more than 3 songs....and THAT is pushing it....why do you think Priest chose to mainly play Dragonaut,Redeemer Of Souls track and the 3rd track Halls Of Valhalla? For that very reason alone. Nobody wants to "take up space" with "pointless albums or even smaller CDs"? Its a joke.
I'm not saying everyone should listen to a full length album every night but jeeze....
Most people who have heard the new Priest have only heard the first 3 tracks and that's because they went to the show.
