Product Description

Product Description

Two CD 2008 release by Judas Priest. In the realm of Heavy Metal, there has never been a double disc concept album that has managed to balance a thought-provoking storyline with metallic thunder. Long in the works, Nostradamus takes epic storytelling to a whole new level, as it recounts the life of this mysterious, world-known 16th Century French prophet. Most bands of this high stature would be happy to play it safe. But not Judas Priest, who continue to take chances and break new ground. No other rock band could have pulled off such a grand statement, and Judas Priest have raised the bar once more with Nostradamus. 23 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could be the best Metal Cd of the last ten years April 13 2009
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is amazing. I have not listened to Priest since high school but this CD has made me a fan again. It'd heavey but still has a flow to it. The lyrics may not be Dylan or Waters but they are nothing to be ashamed of. The only thing that would make this CD better is a two hour live DVD of the whole show. But i fear we will not see that. If you have ever liked priest or maybe you just like the sound of twin guitar leads check this one out. I don't think you'll regret it

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing -but not for every metal fan. June 29 2008
Format:Audio CD
Every once a while comes along something memorable.
If you love music, whether it be Araya's scream, Nile's wall of sound, Chopin's touch or Beethoven's genius, you'll be left moved in complete adoration with this release. If however, you're still at the stage of only enjoying the speed and anger that metal provides so well, if different genres leave you cold and unimpressed, than wait some other year to get this. It is heavy in intent, in sound, but not with anger. It isn't Screaming for Vengeance; it's actually much deeper and much more ambitious. If anything, it is very classical; but any fan of classical and metal as well will tell you that the two genres have very much in common. Add to that that the entire thing is a minor key, you'll be wholly rewarded for your love of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A monumental pasterpiece! July 11 2008
By Customer from Quebec TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Judas Priest is one of the most talented heavy metal bands. They started almost 40 years ago with a mixture of hard rock and progressive rock, then turned to heavy metal, speed metal, whatever they call it. They are so diverse, it is difficult to define their style. None of their albums look alike, each and every one of them is different. They always try new things, and, besides Turbo, never failed. But with Nostradamus they have outdone themselves. Nostradamus is metal opera, and at the same time, vintage Priest. I don't think Rob Halford has ever been able to show the whole beauty and range of his voice. Deep Purple's Don Airey is probably the best keyboardist one could think of to invite for such an ambitious project. Lost Love and New beginning are the two songs I would remove from the song list, but the rest is so great! A stunning album, a masterpiece from one of the best bands ever!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly a review Oct. 27 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was just getting into the album when I switched to disc two, whereupon I discovered a female singer from what sounded like the 1950's. Apparently, although the art on the disc is for Nostradamus, the content is something entirely different. So rather than a review, this is a warning to those who might be giving this as a gift for Christmas - save the packing slip, you might need it.
Amazon has always been exceptional when it comes to defective merchandise, so I don't expect that I, or anyone else, will have a problem with the return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Epic March 23 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I was really worried about this album. I started reading some of the early bad reviews and was a little shocked as to how much some people hated Nostradamus. Even more worrisome were the mixed reviews, often coming from long-time Priest fans. Many liked it, but they were far from blown away.

I'm definitely and strongly in the "love" catagory with this CD. I can totally see why some fans don't like it. Most of the terrible bad reviews I read came from dyed-in-the-wool metal fans, and yeah, you're not going to love it if all you eat, breathe, and sleep is metal. I'm not meaning to be condescending here. People who don't love just metal, but also classical, and especially opera, are more likely to love Nostradamus.

The production is OK, (self produced this one is), but as many reviewers stated, the drums are oddly buried in the mix. Maybe Scott Travis isn't even the right drummer to be playing these kind of grooves (plods?), I don't know. He sure does wail on "Persecution" though, among others. Still it's like a weird 80's drum sound from a Leatherwolf album or something.

KK and Glenn -- awesome as ever. Maybe better than ever. There is everything a guitar lover could want on Nostradamus. Lots of natural guitar tones, distortion, crazy riffs and spastic solos, even a bloody flamenco! Mental solos. Unbelievable.

Halford -- awesome. On some songs he's really reaching back to his love of opera, no doubt of that. Sings in Italian on one song. Kind of jarring, but it suits the whole epic nature of the music. Yes, there are screams. He's learned to make the screams more effective by using them sparingly, more strategically. At the same time a lot of fans want to hear him scream at the top of his lungs again, like he did on Painkiller, and I can understand that.
