I love this album.,
This review is from: Point Of Entry (Audio CD)
Please ignore all the reviews that describe this as Priest's weakest, they are written by insane people. I absolutely love this album.
Compared to all previous Priest albums this came as a bit of a surprise. It is certainly more commercial than British Steel and has a lighter feel to it than anything that had gone before. However, that does not make it a bad album. I found it extremely refreshing at the time of release.
Point Of Entry rocks, albeit not as heavily as earlier Priest, with some truly infectious hooks. Heading Out To The Highway is one of my favourite Priest tracks of all time. Along with Solar Angels and Desert Plains they are stone cold Priest classics. Hot Rockin' may be the most well known track on here but Troubleshooter, All The Way, On The Run, Turning Cirlcles and You Say Yes are hidden gems that need checking out by the uninitiated. Don't Go lets the side down a bit. Not a bad song per se but a bit too left field for Priest and I've never really got on with it.
Point Of Entry is one of those albums that you need to listen to several times before you fully appreciate it and that is what I suggest you do. You won't regret it, I promise.
