The original post

i came up with this question after listening a lot to 70s priest and i discovered that all(except for rocka rolla, which i haven't listened to) are quite brilliant! i didn't include unleashed in the east obviously cuz it's a live album.
a short 2 cents on each of the albums:
-rocka rolla: haven't listened to it.
-sad wings: now here's a lil bit of real metal. kind of depressive album, lyricswise, but the music will get you over, since tyrant, genocide, the ripper, victim of changes are headbanging delights and then there's dreamer deceiver/deceiver which is a really good moody song. 9/10
-sin after sin: slightly heavier than sad wings, with the thrashy intro to diamonds and rust, and what i believe to be the first thrash metal song, dissident agressor. sinner also deserves mentioning, and the two good ballads: here come the tears and last rose of summer. 9/10
-stained class: heavier still but less consistent, we get a sample of what would become iron maiden in the title track, and the album intro of exciter is a moment of pure thrashiness, and we have beyond the realms of death, saints in hell as stand-outs. 8/10
-killing machine(hell bent for leather): not heavier than stained class but still a good metal release. not too consistent, with rock forever, hell bent, killing machine, running wild and evil fantasies as the good songs. 8/10.
so for me it's a tie between sad wings and sin after sin, and i choose sad wings, because of the "ahead of it's day" factor.
and you?

Hell bent for leather. I have their first live concert they put out on tape and they performed that better than any other song on here.

Hellbent For Leather for me. There are just so many songs I love on that one.

The album is called KILLING MACHINE and is ONLY called Hell Bent For Leather in the US because of some stupid laws at the time.

And hence why I called it Hellbent For Leather - take a look at my country of origin. That's what it says on the cover of my version of the CD. I can't help that, nor can I help the stupid laws of my country.

I didn't notice your country of origin. My mistake.

STAINED CLASS - i actually think this is the album that made all the difference in the world of metal and priest were so well ahead of their time when they released this first speed metal album ever ... in this album unlike their previous albums ... all the songs are bludgeoningly heavy and all these songs truly defined what metal was going to become after its release

SAD WINGS OF DESTINY comes a close second because of the number of classics

but overall i would have to say that the most productive era of priest was during the 70s where they showcased excellent musicianship and influenced NWOBHM and Thrash metal

Sad Wings of Destiny for sure, you can't go wrong with classics like Tyrant, Genocide, and Victim of Changes, and the Dreamer Deceiver/Deceiver duo together make my favorite JP song period.

Yes, I would also vote for Sad Wings of Destiny. Great album, and Dreamer Deceiver is an enchanting ballad (my all-time favorite Priest song).
