The two Priest albums with Tim Owens on vocal duty ['Jugulator' and 'Demolition'] were a change in direction for Priest and although there is some very good stuff on both of them, the songwriting is noticeably one dimensional, reflecting, perhaps, the lack of any input from Rob Halford.
'Resurrection', on the other hand, is a magnificent collection of killer vocals, pounding riffs and glorious solos. Particularly agreeable is the [well thought out] twin guitar attack [close your eyes - it could almost be KK and Glenn!], which carries the aural assault throughout.
Maybe it's become a cliché [and I'm certainly not the first to spot it] but the more I listen to 'Resurrection' the more I believe it to be the Missing Link - what could have been the perfect Priest album between 'Painkiller' and 'Angel of Retribution'.
The quality of the songs is so consistently high, one wonders why the Priest haven't included one or two in their live set - imagine the mighty title track, or the wonderful `Twist' given the full Priest treatment.
