 Its all good Head Banger....we all hear things differently like we all taste things differently.

I can not hear any "HALFORD SOLO"  sound in the sounds too old school Priest ...especially the guitar tone.....  but Im not on a mission to change peoples minds.....  no......

Hellrider never liked the Screaming For Vengeance album....I know a guy who doesnt like Defenders.....I know another who doent like Painkiller and its guitar sound ....some do not like Angel Of Retribution....  This is why I condider myself this lucky to rate Redeemer #4.  

Very lucky.

 I cant put my finger on it, somehow it sounds like it should have been a HALFORD record, rather than JP.  something in the Guitar sound and the mix, just doesnt work for me.  Fight worked, but HALFORD never did it for me, and this doesnt.  

wish I could explain better, or wish I could like it more, but I just cant.

I think I rate Redeemer Of Souls the highest in all of the forum or any other forum for that matter ha!  I have rated it #4th best album of Judas Priest.

Im sure nobody here rates it #4 or higher. So that brings me to belive just how LUCKY I am that it turned out that good.  I was one who said it could only be rated #7 or below before I even heard it.

I envey those who rate Nostradamus so high....I wish I liked it as much as those people....totally jealous of them.  

And then boom....REDEEMER OF SOULS.....yeah if this album would of been released in 1986 or 1988 this would of been hearlded as an absolute classic.....its just because its 2015 why its not.

Yeah Im one lucky dude to honestly rate this matter how hard I try I cant rate it higher or lower....its just #4 any way I look at it.  There is NOTHING anyone can do or say that would change my #4 rating of the album.    

Caught In The Crossfire.....ya gotta let gooooo!!!!

Cold Blooded.....the creepiest song they have wrote since The Ripper!   
[J.D. DIAMOND] Saturday, April 25, 2015 8:49:55 PM 
 Yeah ...sometimes this is the best Judas Priest song of all time lol    Thats why its so hard to rate albums in order sometimes.....   Sometimes Painkiller is the best.....sometimes Defenders.....other times Sad Wings .....  

Head Banger I was 16 when Parental Guidance came out and you know how much I cried through it lol

Demonizahhhh tops all. !!!!!! Lyrics, guitars, voice? No comparison! <===well, except for JP itself.

 yeah, AOR is great.  even revolution as a single I thought it was weak, but works on the album.  Lochness, well that could have been cast off.  then it would be perfect.

I like heavy duty and defenders, but they get a bit stale at times.  the track RID has more energy, and would sort of brighten that album, its kind of dark sounding.  would have to re order the tracks though.

And I always liked parental guidance.  of course I was 12 when it came out, so perfect audience.

I like Heavy Duty and Defenders Of The Faith tracks ....always have..I wouldnt want them replaced ....guido may but I dont think with the Ram It Down track though....    AOR is album #1 for you Head Banger?  Very cool.  That album gets no recognition whatsoever.  Eulegy....shit I mis spelled it lol  is outstanding that never gets mentioned either.  
[Head banger] Thursday, April 23, 2015 10:12:38 PM 
picture defenders, with Heavy duty replaced by the song Ram it down? more speed, some guitar work, etc.

AOR goes first for me.

As for the artwork, Sin after sin wins that hands down. What I really want is a new album collage. I have one up to Demolition (someone posted here long ago) now I want a new one with AOR and Nost albums on it. is my desktop at work.

Haaaaa! Yeah, got THAT one right. At least you didn't compare "You Don't Have to be Old" with "Jonnny B. Goode." <==not exactly a Priest song but HORRIBLE!! 

"Sentinel," all the way. However, you know what I think about the lyrics on the Twin Turbos. "1000s of cars and a million guitars?" Bleeah! Still, incredible guitar work. Kinda how I feel about Nostra. When the title track came out I was feeling the same.

"Come and Get it?" Ok, to each his own, LOL!!!! That said, I don't own but liked the little hook in "Johnny" that wasn't in the original or any of the remakes. All nostalgia aside, though.

Yeah, Priest Live almost made me cry when I saw that lame cover. I posted the other day, though that it was one of the best intros of Rob coming from behind the stage. COVER sucked, though, and I think it must have really hurt sales save for the die-hards like us.

Nah, never liked Painkiller art either. Best? You know what I think putting all nostalgia aside. AOR!!!! That was just killer. Four horsemen in Nostra as well was fantastic. Exactly what I had them sign when I went to the meet & greet in TX with Guitardude. Fantastic artwork. Not like the stupid hands of Priest Live. 'Nuff said about that stinker (of a cover, gems of video and song).

 ha I knew the Halls over the Sentinel would cripple ya lol  Its not like Halls Of Valhalla is a 'Parental Guidance'(the WORST JP song EVER WRITTEN) ha so at least you can see why .....but actually Id push for equal than better than the Sentinel.  

The worst LP has to be the Turbo album lol
Ram It Down album wasnt much better....the song Ram It Down ...the guitars are ELITE and perhaps one of the best solos by K.K. and Glen but those lyrics spank of lameness.

Really the entire albums lyrics suck lol  I do like Come And Get It oddly enough....its NOT an elite JP song no but I like it...brings back GOOD memories of 1988 time frame for me plus the song itself....probly the best Commercial track by the band that never got noteriety.

Dude....Priest Live was lame lol wasnt it?  The recording itself too polished....and the WORST album cover of all time for JP.   You didnt like Painkiller's album cover?  I dont think its that bad....but could of been better.....Redeemer Of Souls actually in my opinion is thier BEST album cover ever!  

AOR doesnt make my top 5 either but ........fuckin A Judas Rising,Demonizer and Hellrider are 3 of Priest's top 20 songs of ALL TIME.  Love the album....probly rate it now....#7.......

Exactly, compadre. Going back to where I left off last night as to what was my LEAST favorite album? Well, the "Twin Turbos" if we take out the compilations. Still, "Ram it Down?" (single)? Couldn't stand some of the lyrics but the guitar work is killer! "Locked In?" Loved it! Much better than "Turbo Lover" The VIDS, though. Can't really separate them from the songs due to the era. Back when MTV actually played videos. "Painkiller" (album)? I actually got it the DAY before it was released as I had a friend who worked in a record store and got me the recording, two posters and a number of promotional saws. Oddly enough, one of the only things I have never had framed. Just didn't like the artwork. Only thing worse, IMO? "Priest Live." Yes, I bought it and the video but just hated the artwork. Bunch of hands pointing at a (supposed stage). Pfffft! A.O.R., however, KILLER art even if it doesn't make my top five. "Demonizahhhhhh!" LOL! You know I love it! 

No sense trying to convince anyone that any fav song is better for this or that ("Halls" over "The Sentinel" though?) LOL! - I think we can agree on "Crossfire!" Killah!!!!

[J.D. DIAMOND] Thursday, April 23, 2015 6:59:35 AM 
 Well ,ha.... thats whats cool though isnt it?  A different favs for every fan as it should be. Halls in my opinion is the best track on R.O.S. lol  I would even say its a higher quality than the Sentinel lol 
To me its incredible. When I first picked up Painkiller (the day it came out as we all did lol)
I never liked "Hell Patrol" or "One Shot At Glory" (except for the solos) Im kinda biast when it comes to those tracks...

I love "Dragonaut"!   March of the Damned vs Metal Gods....Id go with Metal Gods but I like March Of The Damned though very much!  I like all 12 tracks I just dont care for Begining Of The End..

Somethin the 80's lps and onwards doesnt have is "Crossfire"!  Crap one of Priest's instant classics!

Id put Screaming over Defenders ...I dont like Take These Chains or Fever.....on Defenders I dont like Eat Me Alive or Night Comes Down....dont hate em but never cared for them....

Yeah Sad Wings will somehow always be #1.

[guidogodoy] Wednesday, April 22, 2015 10:41:27 PM The matchups are my problem. Of course, everyone has their own opinion but you put some of my favs against some of my least. Let's start with "Halls." Nope. One of my least fav R.O.S. songs. What I have argued that has stood against "Painkiller" (song?) = "Persecution!" One of the true gems off of Nostra. "Redeemer" over "Hell Patrol?" Nope. The build to the best scream of the song, "Hell Patrol" RIPPING OUT HEAAAAARTS!" + guitar work makes it outstanding to me. "Sword" vs. "All Guns?" Well, I might see that one. Questionable. More melodic, to be sure. Better lyrics, to be sure. Yes, I'd prolly lean to "Sword" on that one. "Down in Flames?" against "Leather Rebel?" Hands down. "Down in Flames!!!!" "Secrets of the Dead" vs "Touch of Evil?" Now THAT is close! At first listen, I'd give it to "Touch." Again, the build to the line "You're POSSESSING ME!!" is just a killer. Add that I'd likely put "March of the Dead" against "Metal Gods?" THAT I could see a closer argument. Heard too much of either (of course "Metal Gods" more) but they could toss both from the setlist IMO. "Battle Cry?" "One Shot" as well but, I'd agree and give it to "Battle Cry." That is just a killer tune. Got "One Shot" playing as I type. TOUGH!

Of course you skipped "Dragonaught" - one of my favs, you realize! LOL!!   Obviously, not one of yours. No matter, to each his own (except for Bwian, lol....loved your comment as I could see it coming).

At one point I think you asked if we would put Defenders against Vengeance. SO close in my mind. Throw nostalgia aside and I'd put Defenders in front of Vengeance and even B. Steel. Yeah, songs I love on all but Vengeance had what I would call "thowaway songs" now. Crowd pleasers, nothing more. "Defenders of the Faith" and "Heavy Duty" are the only two I could do without on "Defenders." Kinda like "Beginning of the End" for me on R.O.S.

THAT said, where to put "Sin After Sin"? LOL!!! All said, I still love this damn album as well. Can we settle on Halford's "Live Insurrection?" - Nah, I wouldn't even be happy with that call.

Now not to sound the fanboy like Bwian, Trixi and the lot, I have to think of my LEAST fav album. One of my first was actually the original "Best of..." No "Dreamer Deceiver" going into "Deceiver?" but still, BRILLIANT! "Sad Wings" will prolly always be #1...for today at least.

 well in my world I'd put Defenders #5. But thats just me though....R.O.S. tops it but not by a long shot....pretty close.......but everyones got an outlook on rating albums....except for Brian Evans Maiden fan boy lol  

Its not a wonder if some claim Defenders #1 so I can see that too....  The ONLY thing R.O.S. is missing is K.K and his signature sound....but it is so great that it doesnt need it....
[guidogodoy] Wednesday, April 22, 2015 6:30:52 PM 
Hey, you know I love R.O.S. as well but would have a REALLY tough time about where to put "Defenders" in that list.

 Random fact:  Redeemer Of Souls is Judas Priest's 4th best album with Sad Wings Of Destiny,British Steel & Screaming for Vengeance ahead of it.

Lunacy that I take R.O.S. over the Painkiller album? Not so....let me explain:  The track "PAINKILLER" may top ALL songs on R.O.S. ( although I believe Halls Of Valhalla is = equal) but album to album......Redeemer is better (In my opinion) The title track over Hell Patrol(any day)  Sword Of Damocles over All Guns Blazing ...Down In Flames over Leather Rebel...secrets of the Dead  over A Touch Of Evil.....Battle Cry over One Shot At Glory...... .just my opinion but god damn I love this new album!

[Vaillant 3.0] Sunday, September 07, 2014 6:40:59 PM 
Welp, there are a couple of theories as to what happened to that guy.

1). He did not get the memo to bookmark this page before it was separated from the main website.

2). He's still looking for it back on

 So I'll ask anyways:  Anybody got a random fact as to what happened to hellrider 90210 ?  Is he dead or just got bored all a sudden with Priest's Painkiller album and is now only into that crappy Artes Negres album?  Perhaps because ROS  isnt Painkiller mach 2 he switched over to black/death? Got to wonder lol
[guidogodoy] Friday, August 15, 2014 8:53:56 PM 
A person who works with me had an uncle who was one of the main backup singers for Elvis!

Damn, didn't know until he passed. Never got an autograph. Would have looked cool on the St. Jude Marathon medal.
