The Priest at their best,
This review is from: British Steel: 30th Anniversary (Deluxe Edition 2CD+DVD) (Audio CD)
I have seen the video for "Breaking the Law" on amazon.com and heard previews of the CD on iTunes and I have to say, the Priest is most definately back.
The sound has been produced by Tom Allom (Priest's producer throughout the 80s)which means this recording has all the depth you would expect from a Priest album. The DVD itself looks stunning from the little I have seen. The audience are really lively which adds a real energetic vibe to the whole thing. The cameras get really up close and personal with the band members and every shot seems planned (unlike Rising in the East where you got random shots of Scott Travis' knee or a violent judder when the cameraman seems to have nodded off!!!!).
For anyone in doubt as to whether Rob can sing anymore, the proof is in the listening. He can still smash those highnotes which are much stronger than previous shows now he has quit smoking. Just listen out for the piercing scream at the end of Breaking the Law!
Rapid Fire IS included on both the live CD and the DVD, it has been shown in the track listing on other websites and we can only assume the track listing is an error on here. Is was speculated that the song wouldn't make it to the DVD because of poor lighting at the start of the show but the DVD was previewed in the US and Rapid Fire did indeed kick off the show.
Monday can't come quick enough, basically!!!
