Screaming For Vengeance is probably the peak of the Priest's commercial creativity. All aspects of the record come together perfectly, from the sheer strength of the songs to the iconic artwork and to the somewhat radio friendly hit single `You've Got Another Thing Coming', which did wonders for their career in the US (ironic given the fact that Point of Entry failed to dent the US market when it was written for this purpose).

Opener `Hellion/Electric Eye' is an enduring classic, slick, memorable, enduring, timeless and totally unforgettable, whilst the follow up `Riding on the Wind' races along with both some uncharacteristic impassioned drumming from the drum 'operator' Dave Holland (now airbrushed out of the Priest history books for obvious reasons) and the trademark dual guitar attack of Tipton and Downing.

`Bloodstone', which has a massive driving riff, deals with environmental concerns. However, like 'electric eye' (about spy satellites), this song may have been the catalyst for one reviewer (many years ago) to raise the two word, dismissive, comment on the album that it was simply `gormless imagery'. In Priest's defence (if defence were needed) Priest are really not about incisive lyrics, as Painkiller, Freewheel Burning and Ram It Down admirably testify to, and therefore you really have to ignore some of the content and concentrate on the sheer quality of the music.

Next up is the sing-song `Chains', which is a Bob Halligan penned tune that somehow made it as a single (he resurfaces on Defenders with 'Some Heads are Gonna Roll') - nothing really to especially write home about, but adds a different, more commercial shade to the album.

The thing that has always amazed me about SFV is that it manages to be both heavy and commercial at the same time without being overblown at all. It really is a great album and showed to a lot of people, who (wrongly) thought that Priest had lost their way with Point Of Entry, that they still had teeth. The Hellion and Electric Eye are possibly the best opening of any metal album ever with the old twin guitar assault sounding incredible. The title track is only a stones throw away from being thrash and Rob does marvellously on the break-neck paced vocals. Pain And Pleasure wouldn't have been out of place on Killing Machine with it's dark sexual overtones whilst Bloodstone is a pleasantly surprising attempt by Priest to address the state of the world. Two singles were released from this album, the legendary You've Got Another Thing Coming and the heavy ballad (Take These) Chains which propelled the band to near superstardom at the time, particularly across the pond. And that leads to my only real complaint about the album - there was no UK tour.

SFV is one of those albums you just have to own and in my opinion comes a close 2nd to Killing Machine as Priest's finest.

Well, what can I say about this album? Not by chance was it Priest's breakthrough U.S album and really established them as a leading force in the world of metal. 'You've got another thing comin' is a superb track, arguably priest's finest moment, and probably their best known. Not one track on this album disappoints and the album has everything. The only possible downside to this (and I'm clutching at straws here) is that, because the album is so good, a lot of tracks appear on 'best of' compilations. However, this an all-time classic album, so order it now, and when you get it, play it LOUD!

One of the defining albums of the glory years of 80s heavy metal. capturing a band at the height of their powers and featuring the track which brought them stardom in America "you've got another thing coming". From the opening track the Hellion, through "Riding on the Wind" Bloodstone" and more mellower songs like "Chains" and "Fever" the band never sounded so good. With an album as consistent yet varied as this, its just about the best they've ever done. also recommended:- Sad Wings of Destiny, British Steel, Painkiller, and Defenders of the Faith.Mark, UK

Judas Priest's eight studio album Screaming For Vengeance took the band to new heights of popularity when it was released back in 1982 and has since come to be regarded as an all time classic record for Heavy Metal.

Screaming For Vengeance largely lives up to its reputation, the album is very strong and the performances from the band are exceptional. Guitar solos are on top form, Rob's vocals are varied and dynamic and the drumming is rock solid.

The album features many of Priest's well-known tracks, such as `The Hellion/Electric Eye,' `Riding On The Wind,' and `You've Got Another Thing Comin.'

Part of the success of this album can be attributed to the variety herein, the material ranges from fast and exciting metal music like the title track, to slower more emotional tracks like `(Take These) Chains,' and mixes songs with a more classic rock sound with those with a more 80s metal feel. No two songs sound alike, nothing feels like filler and this is a large contributing factor as to why Screaming For Vengeance is such a good record.

If you like Judas Priest, Screaming For Vengeance is obviously something you'll want to pick up and if you are a prospective fan then it would make a fine place to start.
