One hell of a good hard-rock album that, IMO, marked the birth of hard-rock, side by side with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple or Black Sabbath's first ones, even when being released 4/5 years later than those... Way under-rated debut by the Priest, way often forgotten when compared to their later issues. Don't miss your chance to discover the mix between rock, blues-rock and hard-rock in Rocka Rolla. And don't be mistaken too, it helped marking the progressive journey in changing styles, from hard-rock to what we know nowadays as classic heavy metal.

For whatever reason, I've just never been able to click with "Rocka Rolla"... I dunno if it's the production or what, but it sounds incredibly dry and stale. I haven't listened to it in a very long time, but I do love the title track, and I remember "Run Of The Mill" being a decent tune as well. The leap they made from this album to the next one was incredible... there's no sign on the debut that Priest were going to make something as groundbreaking and amazing as "Sad Wings Of Destiny", that's for sure!

Maybe I should give this album another listen though...

No, unfortunately it wasn't done! I'm always asking my self how would be Caviar And Meths with 14 minutes lenght....it seems curious that only past 2 minutes long! ... I will die without listen to it!

The bit on this would only be the intro. Just used to fill up room on the record.

Its OK, just nothing special like the others. But it has also its great moments, such as the title track.

One more underrated gem...

Know what you mean - sounds seriously like Hawkwind in places.

Classic music, not heavy as today metal, more hard rock, but still its amazing, better as many of grind core bands, and modern bands. That trime music no matter what was possible to listen, but we can not say it about todays music.
