Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

As the title implies, former Judas Priest front man Rob Halford has returned--to his roots, if not his senses. After Fight and Two, Halford's post-Priest "experiments" (read: attempts to expand his market base), failed to set the charts afire, it was the singer's career that seemed to need a little resurrection. Hence this (he claims) largely autobiographical, often strangely nostalgic trip down metal's memory lane. That Halford's black-leather sensibility extends beyond his couture is immediately apparent; the crunching, occasionally modern rhythms (Ray Chindeau on bass, Bobby Jarzombek on drums) and twin-guitar assault (Patrick Lachman and Mike Chlasciak) offer a familiar metal landscape of thundering riffs and rapid-fire, diddly-squeak solos for Halford to unleash his ungodly howl upon, with just the odd ballad (the touching "Silent Screams") to shift the mood from anxious/angry to melancholy/angry. Fellow aged metal merchant Bruce Dickinson even drops by on "The One You Love to Hate" (self-esteem problems, fellas?) to swap some venom. Lest we forget that Halford was instrumental in inspiring This Is Spinal Tap, there are lyrics here that thoroughly blur the line between the sublime and the ridiculous ("Cyberworld"'s dire warnings that the Internet is "a Trojan Horse that eats your mind") and mix metaphors ("The world's a stage that's waiting for its bad ass to be kicked") with inspired abandon. In short, this is a heartwarming return to form. --Jerry McCulley

With the release of Resurrection Rob Halford has come up with the corker of an album that we all knew he was capable of ! From the screaming lyrical drive of the title track and right through the entire album, each song has a crunching menacing metal power the likes of which all die-hard Priest fans have waited a long time for.Razor sharp riffs, so heavy that they drop right off the end of the fret-board together with a sound very reminiscent of early priest material ensure that this album is BIG and a must for all Halford/Priest fans. Buy it at once !

Forget the lame industrialised stylings of Two, 'Resurrection' is nothing less than a stunningly brutal comeback album from one of the all time great metal vocalists. Taking the 'Painkiller' blueprint before pumping it full of contemporary metal venom without sounding like a weak stab at credibility, this is destined to be a classic. Picks of the bunch include the intense statement of intent that is the title track and the crushing 'The One You Love To Hate'. 'Silent Scream' meanwhile begins as a sombre slow burning tale of revenge before bursting out of the speakers on an unstoppable metal groove. Halford's voice has never sounded so powerful and emotional and his band more than live up to the standard of classic Judas Priest; five stars ain't enough. Simple as that.

If you only buy one CD this year, make sure this is the one you buy! Rob Halford has probably THE best voice in rock, and this whole CD is just absolutely fabulous. IMHO there isn't a weak song on it and the band are more than a match for Halford's soaring vocals (and they do SOAR, believe me). I love it and would thoroughly recommend it, especially to anyone who likes Judas Priest from the Halford years. Worth every single penny...

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.

Brilliant *****

If you were to look for an album which defined the term Heavy Metal, this would possibly be it. This album has everything you would associate with the phrase - even down to the cheesy Harley shot on the cover. Perfect guitar sound, GREAT songs, brilliant vocals, and no stupid frills or experiments. You cannot love Heavy Metal and not love this. There really is no more to be said.

Oh yer, what can I say about this album. IT SERIOUSLY ROCKS. In my opinion this IS the metal album of the year, it rocks form start to finish with Reserection sounding very Judas Prest with screeming vocals and seriouse atitude. One you Love the Hate a superb duet with Maiden screemer Bruce Dickenson has to be one of the highlights of this album. The production and musical input of Roy Z who helped re-invent Bruce these last years as done the same job with Rob. The metal God is back. Roll one the UK tour!

Not just a great metal album, but a return for the man whom we all thought was down and out. Now Resurrection appears and my faith in metal is restored. If you remember Judas Priest from the 80's and the "hits" then this will come as a surprise. This is full on non stop metal at its best, and unlike a lot of his contemporaries cd's this gets better with every listen. It pulls no punches and right from the start you can see what the man is all about. Strong, fierce, and hard as hell- welcome back Rob the world is a better place for cd's like this.

This CD is absolutely awsome in every way, Rob's voice has so much power and feeling, and unlike the recent Judas Priest releases, every song is an instant classic, comparable to the best of the Halford/Priest era and then some.....the only CD i have ever heard that maybe better is LIVE INSURECTION....Halford rules !!!!!!
