    The first Priest album that had good production was, oddly enough, their first live album.

    They reinvented themselves as the "metal gods" in the Eighties, but it's worth remembering that before that Queen was their biggest influence. For example, "Exciter" is clearly influenced heavily by "Stone Cold Crazy." They were going for a cleaner, more precise sound in the Seventies.

    All songs are fucking AMAZING.

    I totally regret not had going to see them on this Tour (in fact never saw them...) I hadn't listen to Album before and Pantera (mostly unknown in Europe back then) were opening for them... arghhhhhhhhhhh

    I tend to think of them as classic rock Priest, then metal Priest. And the songwriting on the classic rock stuff was really, really killer.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Right man? I am surprised Noodles pointed it out like its a bad song. Sure the lyrics are corny but all of JP lyrics are corny.

    Heading Out to the Highway is pretty corny but it is the song I play every time I drive on the highway.

    That song is actually awesome. Cool riffs, great arrangement, and Halford sings his ass off.

    I know I'm in the minority, but I hate the soloing on the Painkiller album. They sound like every sloppy 80s shredder playing beyond their ability. Glen Tipton is one of my favorite metal soloists ever, and on that album he consciously walked away from a unique, instantly recognizable style to be a cut rate Paul Gilbert. There is absolutely nothing on that album that can touch his solo in Electric Eye.
