I adore this cd
I was worried when I heard the title track, but I needn't have been
As a lifelong Priest and Halford fan, my opinion is that it is pretty much perfect
It grows, your favourites will change
Its like they looked at everything i love about Priest and put it all in, along with the kitchen sink.
Twists and turns, finally some drumming that doesn't sound like a machine, beautiful beautiful solos, and such variety ... and probably the best screams I have ever heard in metal
I'm no longer going to take any notice of Dom Lawson's opinions. Of course i respect him, but they feel like a betrayal to metal to me. Yes it is in many many places a rehash, but a rehash of such immense quality that Priest fans have not been lucky enough to hear for the best part of 30 years.
If you loved the Staind Class to Defenders Of the Faith era, it is my feeling that you are going to need clean pants when you hear this. And if you don't, give it some time. It is not as immediate as say Halford's last solo album, and that just makes me love it even more
Stone cold beautiful metal classic that I could never have predicted
