I would have to say that Sin After Sin is my favourite Priest album and here's why. Lately i have felt a very strong urge to dig up all my old Priest vinyl as thats the only medium i have of theirs and after much deliberation it came down to three; Sad Wings Of Destiny, Stained Class and Sin After Sin. I don't know what's come over me lately, i guess the band announcing their farewell tour and KK leaving got me all dewey eyed. To be honest i hadn't listened to JP in ages and moved on in to other areas of music, especially alternative and electronic, dance etc, but the mighty Priest always fascinated me as they defined my early teenage years of growing up etc and have always been dear to my heart.

Sin After Sin was their third album released in 1977 with their third drummer Simon Philips and is similar in production to Sad Wings. You could almost argue in hindsight its a continuation of its themes. Title track Sinner is simply stunning and flawless heavy metal played with conviction. It features a breathtaking solo from KK Downing which gives it its epic status and is propelled along by some absolutely amazing drumming which is prevalent throughout this record. Next up we have Diamonds And Rust which sounds nothing like the original i am delighted to say. When Priest do covers, they do it their way and like all their others they almost re invent the song, making it their own, and its a brilliant showcase for Rob's vocals too that take on a classical edge. Next up we have Starbreaker which features a simple but effective riff that showcases their more gothic side and is another heavy tune with some tasty leads from Glenn and KK with Rob cutting through again with his operatic voice. Side one ends with probably my favourite Priest song, and its the ballad Last Rose Of Summer.

Sin After Sin is often received with mixed emotions. Firstly, it isn't a commercial music product at all, which makes it fascinating. A masterpiece to be slowly digested. This album is one of Priest's most intriguing, yet brilliant productions. It touches many musical ranges... it is heavy (ie. the Sinner), brutally heavy (Dissident Aggresor), furious (Call for the Priest), soft and moody (Last Rose of Summer), atmospheric and soulful (Here Come the Tears), et all.
Rob Halford's vocals and lyrics are at their peak here. Glenn and KK's guitars are imaginative, skillful and impressive. Ian Hill's bass is... mmmh, let's better skip that with Simon Phillip's incredible drumming!! Until this day I still can't believe some of the prodigious and intricate drums parts he laid down for those sessions (sadly, he only acted as a session player). Simon started a whole thrashy drum movement with his dexterity in Sin After Sin. Roger Glover's production here is frequently critized for not achieving a heavier sound, but I disagree with that, as the end result is just what was needed musically.
The real beauty of Sin After Sin is that one can actually listen to many new subtle things each time one listens to it, no matter how many times played back... and that simply doesn't happen often these days. IT HAS MAGIC ALL OVER IT. This is a must item in any rock CD collection. A timeless classic!

Sin After Sin was British Heavy Metal band Judas Priest's third studio album, released in 1977 following up the Sad Wings Of Destiny album. The album saw a few changes for the band; it was their first album on Columbia Records as they escaped from their original label Gull Records, the position of drummer changed from Alan Moore to the talented session player Simon Phillips and finally the production job was handled by Deep Purple's Roger Glover.

Musically there is a lot going on, the tracks cover a lot of ground; are flashy and virtuosic and still manage to actually rock hard. For example the opening track `Sinner' has impressive vocal performances, great guitar work and even impressive drumming, especially when it slows down in the middle; all individual areas shine yet don't compromise the song's energy or attitude for the sake of showing off.

Sin After Sin is also interesting to listen to from a vocal stand point as Rob tries out dozens and dozens of different voices, from lows to highs, hard to soft and sometimes adding in surprising emotional weight too. The amount of territory covered really is rather surprising and more and more variety is revealed upon repeat listening.

With such great vocals, improved drumming and the ever wonderful twin guitar approach of Downing and Tipton, Sin After Sin is a very strong and enjoyable record. In addition to the aforementioned `Sinner,' other highlights include the heavy `Dissident Aggressor,' the catchy mid-paced `Starbreaker' and the speedy Queen influenced `Let Us Pray/Call The Priest.'

Interestingly, the album features the concert favourite Joan Baez cover song `Diamonds & Rust' which was previously recorded but eventually omitted from previous albums.

Having released already two brilliant albums, Judas Priest came out with Sn After Sin in 1977, which shows them moving into new territory and starting to define the sound of what was going to become the New Wave of British Heavy Metal some two years later. Some songs have still a very progressive influence such as the ballad Last Rose of Summer or Starbreaker, and this is not a bad thing: they are amazing songs. But the classic sound of later heavy metal would be quite noticeable in songs such as Let us Prey/Call for the Priest or Sinner. Songs like Dissident Aggressor are the perfect example of this transition, in all of its raw energy... this is the most memorable song of the album in my opinion, together with the Joan Baez cover Diaminds and Rust. They really know how to take a song and give it their own flavour when covering them... Diamonds and Rust is just pure magic in their rock version, without losing any of its original feeling of deception. This album is, on top of everything, the one where the vocal range of Rob Halford can be better appreciated, from the mild harmonies of Here Comes the Tears or Last Rose of Summer to the intensity on Dissident Agressor or Starbreaker. Only for this alone, it is well worth buying it.
