I respect your opinion because it shows you`re honest and you`re a Rocker for expressing what you feel ( Do as I feel as I say ). However, I can`t understand yet why you don`t like this album. Well, you say it`s too long and experimental and it doesn`t have the Judas Priest sound but aren`t you happy that Judas Priest is a band that evolves reather than being stuck, doing the same thing all the time. Their creativity flows, they`ve challenged themselves more than ever with Nostradamus. They`re still Judas Priest , they are just creating Metal in a different new light. Personally, I love the album and I say it from the bottom of my heart, not following the general opinon and I think that makes me a true Judas Priest fan too.

1001 ways to know your a Judas Priest fan humm...Maybe I'm not as big as a fan as most of you on here,even though Judas Priest are my favorite band of all time,I simply can not support this band for everything that they do.
I bought 2 Priest tickets back in May 2008 to see them in Seattle for the July show,but when I bought the tickets I had not yet heard any sound samples from the new album Nostradamus.Then,after I had already bought the tickets...I heard the entire album and I was sooo disappointed,that I "gave away" my 2 tickets to a friend that had nothing to do that night..I "gave them away" free..(I guess I should of posted them on E-bay) but I said "fuck it" and tossed them away to a friend.
Thats how "pissed off" I was at this band for recording this 'Nostradamus" album,it ruined the entire outlook for me even though I found out later that they only played a couple of tracks off Nostradamus it did'nt matter to me and still does'nt.
Going to the show would of been a "tease" for me because the band should have it in them to make a killer record,but instead they chose to do something for "experimental fans".So be it. I never bought the Nostradamus album,and I might never own it.
If the next album is anything like Nostradamus,I will again not buy the album,and will not go to the show,no way. I still love this band,and I still give them credit for thier "efforts" in trying to please everybody but I am not happy with thier decisions and direction of the band. Maybe I'm not a "true Judas Priest fan" to all of you for my opinions here,but I am a "true heavy metal fan" who knows his metal,and knows it very well.
