Yeah, I'm sure it won't take another hundred years (heh) for JP to finish this album. And I agree with you on the Richie bit. His playing style just suits this band SO well. Him being in ROS and these last couple of tours has me really looking forward to this new album. Also can't wait to see the artwork! C'mon, new monster!
I really enjoyed Redeemer. I personally think it was a good "going back" to priest's roots after nostradamus...which I personally like even though it's not really what we expect from the guys
As for the new album hopefully it's not taking another 100 years again but from the impression the previous album left, richie has made his way into giving priest a new sound without deviating from what they usually did that much. I just got the new Iced Earth album (which I know has nothing to do with this topic) and seeing how Stu managed to renew this band's energy without trying to be matt barlow in the last two albums actually made me feel more excited about what priest could come up with
PD: I quoted vail's post because this page is not letting me type anyting unless I quote a previous message it seems...

JP is "almost done" with the new album! Anyone taking bets as to its release date? I say somewhere in the first half of 2020.
