5.0 out of 5 stars Cant believe its 30 years!!!!!!!!!, 16 May 2010
This review is from: British Steel: 30th Anniversary (Deluxe Edition 2CD+DVD) (Audio CD)
..since i purchased this hallowed album,wow time flys when yer getting old.originally released in 1980(a fantastic year for heavy rock)this album heralded a change in direction for Priest,tempering some of the more lengthy Gothic metal and streamlining a slightly more accesible sound for the USA.

So what do we have in this fantastic 30th anniversary edition? well...

disc 1: The original remastered disc same as before with 2 bonus tracks,you'll know this disc inside out,classic metal via 'Rapid Fire' 'Metal Gods' etc with hummable tunes such as 'Breakin The Law','United' and album standout track 'Livin After Midnight'.

Disc 2 live audio from the dvd,excellent touch for when you just want to turn down the lights,listen in the dark and do some 'Livin after Midnight'.

Disc 3 Fantastic live dvd of the entire album live plus some career highlights such as 'Ripper ',Victim of Changes' 'Hell Patrol & '..Another Thing Comin' thrown in.
The band are on form here,Halford's voice especially,this dvd is certainly better than the previous 'Rising in the East' release.

I have been critical of the last couple of Priest releases(and i stand by those criticisms) but this is a superb release and the live section has reinvigorated my interest,this is a must buy,and will be in your stereo for weeks.

British Steel is indeed a classic and let's hope JP go back to doing what they do best with their next album, rather than that tedious pile of pish, Nostraborues. At least they decided against playing all of that live. They realised that half the audience would walk out and the rest would go to sleep
