Sad Wings of Destiny is probably my favorite album by Priest. I love their pre-British Steel era stuff. Defenders of the Faith runs a close second though.

Jugulator is the darkest Priest album ever and I really adore this one. IMO It should be released under another band name but nevertheless it is an outstanding album!

With titles like 'Decapitate,' 'bullet train,' and 'dead meat' I think that much becomes appearent lol. But yeah, pretty sick album.

I listened him, well he isnt bad, but if its be JP all time vocals, they never would reach glory, its same like Iron maiden whit Paul, his solo albums is good, but I reealy doubt he whit JP ever recah top of metal mountain , this muisc sounds like he wanna recah something but sometimes he cantr its like created because you need album full whit music not because you got good inspiration

Ugh Jugulator is one of the worst Judas Priest albums - it's just heavy for the sake of being heavy and the songs don't ever go anywhere. The vocals are great but they really stripped down the instrumentation and just made things dumb. It was great that they revived themselves with Angel of Retribution, but sadly released Nostradamus, probably their very worst. Yeah Jugulator is dark, but it sucks.

No, Turbo is by faaaaaarrrrrrr their worst. Ram It Down is a bloody classic next to that pop-fest.

I still don't get the hate for Nostradamus. I keep wondering if I got an alternate version or something because I love it.

You guys are ridiculous! xD Sure, overall Turbo and Ram it Down aren't their best, but they still have good songs. Wild Nights, Hot and Crazy Days is reason enough to buy Turbo, while Nostradamus only has one or two good songs... and it's two discs! Ram it Down has Heavy Metal, Ram it Down, Blood Red Skies, and probably at least one or two other really good songs, but unfortunately it ends kinda lame (I guess I'm one of the few who doesn't like the cover of Johnny B Good or w/e). But regardless, those songs alone make those two albums better than Nostradamus. Oh shit I have to write a report. Shouldn't have gotten drunk

One album that I really don't get the hate over is Point of Entry. Sure, it's definitely not in their top 5, but it blows away the preceeding British Steel. It has Desert Plains, which is probably in my top 5 favorite JP songs ever. Maybe it's just good driving music, which is most likely the only times I've played it, but I think it's way better than Jugulator, Demolition, British Steel, and Nostradamus. Damn I sure could explain myself better if I brought my good CD case to work with me tonight :/

"Wild Nights, Hot & Crazy Days" sounds like a bloody AC/DC cover. And even if something as awesome as "Painkiller" or "Victim of Changes" was on Turbo, it wouldn't make up for utter garbage like "Turbo Lover" and "Parental Guidance."

I have to place Point of Entry as their next weakest, and British Steel pretty close to it. I don't count the Ripper albums as real Judas Priest albums personally.

If you listen to Nostradamus for songs, yeah, you're going to be disappointed, but as an album, a complete work, I find it absolutely enthralling. When I listen to it, it's always as a whole album. The only other JP album I do that with is Sad Wings of Destiny.

There is good cheese and there is bad cheese.

I'm not averse to the occasional slice of aged cheddar. "Nightcrawler" and "The Sentinel" are two of my favourite JP songs.

The problem with Turbo is that it's a fetid lump of Limburger. Forty-odd year old men playing songs with lyrics like "Put on my jacket before you get too old..." is just a little too ridiculous. It could have been a friggin' Manowar album it's so bloody bad. The lyrics, the production, the riffs, the guitar synths - everything about it is just bad. It's a pop album.

To follow up back to back classics like Screaming for Vengeance and Defenders of the Faith with that was bordering on unforgivable. These guys were my metal gods at the ripe old age of 15 when they unleashed the biggest musical letdown ever.

23 years later, I'm still bitter about it.

we don't need no, no, no, no parental guidance here!

to be honest the ONLY Priest album i find slightly boring aside from the obvious picks Demolition and Rocka Rolla is probably Point Of Entry(i didn't even listen to it all, did i miss anything? )... also, imo their most underrated album is Ram It Down, which is an absolute beast, the main riff of Hard As Iron is a fucking epic monster, and I'm A Rocker is imo their least cheesy anthem-song, Blood Red Skies is epic shit and of course the 2 opening tracks are winners(though i do admit Glenn and KK kinda exaggerated with the solo's on those 2 songs). pretty much WASP-like epic 80s metal, only it's far better than any WASP album, and of course Priest was one of WASP's main influences.

Jugulator on the other hand is a BEAST, and the live album released after that is a fucking monster, Priest going insane as fuck. i love how Rapid Fire sounds on that thing, especially the lead break, it's so brutal and fast it's incredible, everything is cranked up, tuned down, sped up and layered with vicious scream after vicious scream.
what i like about Ripper-era Priest is that even though they generally set the direction of modern heavy metal with Painkiller, few bands followed the trend, and only after Priest showed a far more definite direction with Jugulator do the modern power metal bands start showing up.

What can I say? Priest are my all time fave band!

"Rocka Rolla" is the only album by Priest I find to be a bit boring. Although I love the title track! It's amazing the huge leap between the debut, and "Sad Wings Of Destiny". Which is one of metal's defining albums, as well as one of Priest's! I know a lot of people hate "Turbo", but I find much to enjoy on that album. Apart from "Private Property", "Parental Guidance", and "Wild Nights..." which are just far too silly for their own good!

"Point Of Entry" is one of their weakest albums, though "Heading Out To The Highway", "Hot Rockin'", and especially "Desert Plains" are total classics! I also have a soft spot for "You Say Yes". As for the Ripper-era albums...well, I think they are both really underappreciated albums, though I remember being floored by the brutality of "Jugulator" when I first heard it, as it was far heavier than anything Priest had done before. The first song I heard from that album was "Bullet Train" on a Metal Hammer compilation cd before the album's release, and I was blown away. I actually class this as one of Priest's classic songs, the build up is tense, the chorus pounding, the lead trade off between K.K. and Glenn is scorching, and the finale with Ripper screaming over charging guitars and drums is just awesome! I actually find both Ripper albums to be better than "Nostradamus", which I found to be overlong, and a bit too ambitious for it's own good. Although it does have some great songs on it.

"Defenders Of The Faith" would be a contender for my fave Priest album, were it not for the stupid "Heavy Duty" at the end of the album... "Sad Wings..." "Stained Class" and "Painkiller" are my fave Priest albums. Coincidentally, "Painkiller" was the first Priest album I heard, and must be one of the most imitated albums of all time, especially by some power metal bands that came after it!

Mmmm why is it only people that didn't hear Ram It Down and Turbo Lover at the time they were released think those albums are any good?
Anybody that grew up with JP think thos etwo are totally bad, telling, isn't it? Yep, cause the young ones usually tend to be some sort of revisionists when it comes to ol;d albums oftheir fav bands they didn't grow up with.
Even though Point Of Entry is quite bad it is vastly superior to both RiD and TL.

I'd disagree. Well perhaps only because Turbo was my gateway to them. And I listen to that album more often than to British Steel, Defenders of Faith and Screaming for Vengeance individually (combined they get more spins) as it sounds like nothing else, except perhaps for ZZ Top's Eliminator. Besides there are worse things in Judas Priests catalogue, Painkiller (that's right), Point of Entry, their post-Ripper stuff and the debut come to mind.

But you're not my age and dind't get into metal in the mid to late 70s right?

But I fully disagree there worse things in JP's disocgraphy than Trubo although Nostradamus does come damn close I must agree. And the debut still kicks Turbo's ass all over the place. As does Painkiller, althoug that is one of their worst as well tbh.

Judas Priest is one of the few metal bands (mabey the only metal band) that has been able to influence metal in a different way for 3 decades in a row(the 70's, 80's, and 90's). Plus some of the stuff they have done so far in the 21st century has been great. Every thing they did in the 70's was great exept mabey Rocka Rolla, which had some good songs. Sad Wings, Sin After Sin, Stained Class, and Killing Machine are all great and classic albums, some of my all time favorites. They were to the late 70's what Sabbath was to the early 70's. In the early 80's they had some more greats, Brittish Steel, Screaming For Vengeance, and Defenders of the Faith. They changed their sound to a heavier, oftin more melodic sound with SFV and DOTF. Point of Entry which was good, but not as good as other works. By the late 80's they somehow changed their sound again with Turbo, which is the bands worst without a doubt. Then they found that this sound didnt work so they got back to Metal with Ram It Down. While it may not be their best it was still a pretty good album that would be followed by an even better album. It was their 1990 album Painkiller, which was the bands best since DOTF, and one of the bands best(and one of metals best of course)albums period.

I do not really like the Ripper(Tim Owens not the song), nor do I like what he did with Priest. Jugulator may be pretty good but not great like Painkiller. I wish Halford would have stuck with the band at that point, after Painkiller. What I have heard Demolition is pretty weak, but whan Halford came back things got back on track with the great Angel of Retribution. Oh and I dont care what you guys say I think Nostradamus is a great album.

Defenders of the Faith is a monster of an album, but I think the song Love Bites takes the cake for most retarded song on the album. I sorta like Heavy Duty, but this may only be because of how it rolls into the epic Defenders of the Faith outro.

That certainly is the single most retarded song on the album, both musically and lyrically. But then again Judas Priest are masters of retarded songs.
