|It's a shame to hear people write off the "Ripper" period albums, just because, or so it would appear, Rob wasn't involved with the band at this time.|
Personally speaking, I'm not a great fan of "Jugulator", although the three songs that I really do like are "Blood Stained", "Burn In Hell" & "Abductors" - the first of which certainly seemed to have become a live favourite when I saw them playing with Mr. Owens.
"Demolition", for me, is a much more interesting release, but suffers from perhaps having too many songs, but the ones that catch my interest most are "One On One" (another that worked well live, at the time), "Hell Is Home", "Devil Digger", "Bloodsuckers", "In Between", "Feed On Me", "Subterfuge" & "Lost & Found". However, "Jekyll & Hyde" is ludicrous (IMO)!!!
Whether you like it or not, these albums are still Judas Priest records, and deserve the support, consideration & time of anyone who might regard themselves to be a proper fan of the band (rather than just of Mr. Halford).
Anyway, back on subject - for me it's probably a tie for worst album as both "Jugulator" & "Turbo" only have three songs that I would actually choose to listen to (the "Turbo" ones being "Turbo Lover", "Out In The Cold" & "Reckless").
