I like what you have to say Healer - for me, this disc is a throwback to the "Sad Wings" and "Sin After Sin" days with the mid tempo/acoustic tracks.
I, for one, have been looking forward to Priest -as a band, not just Glenn and K.K.- getting back in touch with this side of their songwriting. Dreamer Deceiver, Before the Dawn, Here Come The Tears etc. have been some of my faves over the years and much of Nostradamus touches on that. Shadows In The Flame and Peace are beautiful intros. I think that over time this disc will grow on the skeptical. There is much to digest here, but I love this disc more and more with each listen. They just announced the Montreal date, so that saves my trip down the 401 to Toronto. YES!
Give it more of a chance - maybe the next listen will be the one that wins you over.
