TOPIC: A Touch Of Evil Live reviews
[Screamin' Demon] Sunday, July 12, 2009 1:28:28 AM 
I just bought and listened to A Touch Of Evil Live. After taking a full listen, my response to it is going to be bittersweet. The quality of the recordings is superb and nothing less than Priest's standards. Though, there is a huge difference in sound in songs from 2005 & 2008. The ultimate disappointment is the fact that 6 of the 11 songs are just touched-up versions from Rising In The East on which Rob sounded tired, strained and unable to grasp that mid-range growl. Listening to the new songs really shows how refreshed the band is since they hit the road in June last year. Between The Hammer And The Anvil, Death, Dissident Aggressor, Eat Me Alive and Prophecy all show a revitalised and a hungry Judas Priest. Death in particular raises my hairs. Rob has truly come back a hero on this Priest Feast tour and is now an unstoppable leather clad brute. The tracklisting however is too short and too many mindblowing tracks like Hell Patrol and Sinner feel sorely missed. The album is worth a buy, but overall nothing special. I find myself preferring to listen to fan filmed footage on youtube than to listen to the album. My rating 6.5/10
