I will admit that "squawking" can be a little nerv-racking at times. When you think Priest though, the first thing that enters your mind is Rob halford screams. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Eternal Betrayer from Thursday, September 22, 2011 8:48:10 AM)

I think it's a bit unrealistic to expect Rob to be able to sing exactly how he used to be able to in the 70's, 80's & early 90's. However, he does have a right good stab at it & some of his vocal performances on this Epitaph tour have been breathtaking - just check out "Victim Of Changes" for some excellent screaming. Even this clip of "Blood Red Skies" has him going for it too.
The falsetto part of the intro though, does seem to be beyond him now, and would probably give most vocalists a serious challange (in a live setting especially).
Personally, I would rather see or hear him save his fantastic voice for those notes he can reach, and where the song really needs it.
From what I can see, nothing is lost from him singing in a lower key, and it saves everyone cringing as he struggles to reach the unattainable.
It's always nice to see common sense prevail.

Doesn't this ruin the whole Judas Priest effect though, Halfords high notes are 50% to 70% of the expierence.
