iTunes Review

When the audience joins in for the chorus on the live version of the Judas Priest classic “Breaking the Law,” you can hear the awesome dedication that Priest fans bring to their favorite band. Judas Priest rewrote the rules of heavy metal, wrestling it away from its blues base and finding a new world order in power chords, twin-guitar attacks, commanding vocals and imagery that often centered on pain, pleasure, leather and revenge. Each of their studio albums helped build their following but it was 1980’s British Steel that broke the band wide open. “Breaking the Law” and “Living After Midnight” were instant classics and put together with solid album cuts such as “Metal Gods,” “You Don’t Have to Be Old to Be Wise” and “United,” made for a band built for the rock arena where this Anniversary Edition wraps up with modern day Priest performances, proving that while singer Rob Halford may not always have the range he once had, he stills has the heart to put across classics such as “The Ripper,” Joan Baez’s “Diamonds and Rust” and their later hit “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’.” This special edition even includes an interview on the making of the album.

Customer Reviews

The beginning...

This album was genre defining. Sure, there were classics that preceded it (Sad Wings, Hell Bent for Leather, etc.) but this was THE album! Over time, the songs have remained both relevant and incredible. Only 'Breaking the Law' and 'Living After Midnight' have lost some edge...sounding more like mainstream rock than metal now. Don't get me wrong: they're great songs, but unlike the others. 'Grinder', 'Rapid Fire', 'Metal Gods'...those songs still make you crumble under their weight. Truly outstanding metal music!

Buy this. Buy all Priest...they are the metal genre!

Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the '70s, spearheading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal late in the decade. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused the gothic doom of Black Sabbath with the riffs and speed of Led Zeppelin, as well as adding a vicious two-lead guitar attack; in doing so, they set the pace for much popular heavy metal from 1975 until 1985, as well as laying the groundwork for the speed and death metal of the '80s.
