But yeah AOR was FAR from an expirement. The only experimental thing they did on that album was Lochness and they've ALWAYS had songs like that on at least most of there albums. The slower more epic numbers like Blood Red Skies. There all in the same vein.
Point of Enty, Turbo, and Nostradamus were huge leaps of faith. I haven't heard Demolition yet but I will someday.
Even when you think about it, Nostradamus was still VERY like to there 70's material in the terms of the more epic and moody numbers, which are abundent on there 70's album. The drama and passion is RIGHT there again like 35 years ago but I guess the only reason people don't like it is because it's not like what they did in the 80's. 70's and 80's Priest are completely different animals.

LOL! Yes I agree,but Judas Priest are like Forest Gump's box of chocolates.....ya never know what your going to get next!! HA HA HA HA!!
I do agree though.....but I don't understand how people can call Painkiller and Jugulator and Angel Of Retribution an experimental album?
If Angel Of Retibution was an "experimental album".....then what the fuck was Nostradamus then"? Don't tell me...I think I'm afraid to fuckin know!!! LOMFL!!!!!!!!!!
In my eyes...people who love "Metallica and Symphony" would like Nostradamus.

....and after the terrible experimental album "Demolition"....they came back and gave us "Angel Of Retribution"!!!!
I sure hope your right,it makes sense...they have always roared back with a "NORMAL" JP album....so lets hope so,the band is not getting any younger so it would be nice to get another Judas Priest album thats worthy.

I hope that Priest puts out another hardcore metal album next. I think they will to show EVERYONE that they still have it and can still do it better than anyone else!
I think their history shows that after something isn't accepted the way that they hoped, they go back in the studio and give the fans EXACTLY what they want. After Point of Entry, they came back with Screaming, after Turbo/Ram It Down (which was supposed to be a double disc set) they gave us Painkiller. I think we are in for an incredible album!
As for the new live album they are releasing in July, I can't wait! Halford's Live Insurrection was pieced together from multiple shows and I thought it was done VERY well. From what I read from people, Rob's voice in some of these shows in 2005 & 2008 was not his best. I can tell you that when we saw them in 2005 in a small venue at the Soaring Eagle Casino, his voice was dead on and his screams were the best I'd ever heard!! Cut right through you, it was incredible! So if they piece it together, we will get the absolute best version of each song, which I think is a GOOD thing.
