5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Speed Metal Album Ever July 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
I like to think of Judas Priest's 1990 metal masterpiece Painkiller as a speed metal Exile On Main Street. Both albums are examples of stunning perfection in thier respective genre's from start to finish. I've always noticed that Judas Priest's role in heavy metal is similar to the Rolling Stones in rock n roll ( The Stones combined the best elements of r&r, r&b, blues, etc. perfected it into thier own definitive style, in every conceivable way became the epitome of rock n roll music and would be the reference point for all real rock n roll music that followed. Judas Priest did the exact same thing for heavy metal.) so I couldn't resist the Exile/Painkiller comparison. Painkiller is the band's fastest and heaviest album to date and easily one of their best. The sound is simply classic Priest fueled by the influence of 80's speed metal bands such as Metallica and Megadeth. Basically, if you like speed metal at all, Painkiller is essential. Everyone in the band is in top form and each gives an inspiring, breathtaking 110% over-the-top performance, especially noteworthy is drummer Scott Travis since Painkiller is his first Priest album and his ferocious double-bass technique gives the band's sound a new power. Every song on Painkiller is a classic beginning with the ferocious beast of a title track on which Rob Halford screams and wails at the top of his lungs for the entire song and Scott Travis unleashes his immortal drum intro and ending with the majestic, epic battle anthem One Shot At Glory featuring one of Glenn Tipton and KK Downing's best ever guitar soloing duels. Also notable is A Touch Of Evil which is the one non-speed-metal song on here; its a heavy, midpaced, atmospheric ballad, of sorts, which sounds not quite like anything else they've ever done and has one of Tipton's greatest guitar solos ever to boot. In my opinion, Judas Priest are the greatest metal band of all time and Painkiller is one of their best albums. You will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY album that defines Heavy Metal Music June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let me tell you something about myself. I am not rebellious or an anti-social person. I am not addicted to any narcotic or addictive substance. Heck, I am your average every-day perfectly normal guy that you bump into in a 7-eleven store...and I LOVE JUDAS PRIEST!! So, if you are a person who thinks "Heavy Metal is for the wierd teenaged junkies." I think you would be interested in the kind of music creted by a certain Mr. William Hung. For the rest of you, read on.
The first ever Heavy Metal music I bought was Judas Priest's " Metal Works '73-'93 " in (GET THIS) 2002 when I was 23 years old-by no means a teenager and definitely not a junkie. The album totally blew me away!! I went back to the store a couple of days later and I found this metal masterpiece-'Painkiller'. I have listened to it an infinite number of times and every time I listen to it, my awe and respect for the band has increased. This is the definition of pure Heavy Metal. It is dark, scary, HEAVY and yet- (you read it right) melodious!! No other band could produce a record that comes close to this one-even Judas Priest themselves.
Each and every song on this albums is a true masterpiece. It's like visiting the Sistine Chapel and gazing and admiring the paintings on the cieling one by one. You never get enough of it. I'll probably listen to the album when I am 50 or 60 years old and tell you the very same thing.
If you are a person into heavy metal-get this album and listen to it. A true connoisseur knows a masterpiece when he sees one. Get this album today and join the club of the true headbangers. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome July 20 2004
By aldoman
Format:Audio CD
This cd was my first Judas Priest cd. I have to say it is the best Heavy Metal album I have ever heard. The drums are great, the guitars are great and vocals are awesome. If you have wondering which Judas Priest album you should get, GET PAINKILLER!!!
P.S. great art on cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the many best metal albums! Sept. 16 2006
By Customer from Quebec TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Let the bay area thrashers listen to thrash only, they obviously don't listen to groups who have established heavy metal as a style before they have been born. Typical for the new generation fans. In the seventies, when Priest started, there was no such such term as style. Groups like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Queen, Pink Floyd and Genesis were different from each other as day and night but they were all in the same pot. The more the "styles" were defined, the duller the bands sounded. Judas Priest is one of the best groups ever who never feared to try different things although the results were not always good. Their early albums were progresive, then Stained Class was heavier, then they were some poppy albums like Point of Entry and Turbo (terrible albums). Painkiller is their heaviest album from 1974 to 1990 (the two Ripper Owens albums from 1997 and 2001 were probably heavier). I don't know what a metal fan could not like in this album-it's heavy, the songs are great -Painkiller, Metal Meltdown, Touch of Evil are still classic metal anthems. I wish the new groups had vocalists like Rob Halford. Nope! They are all barking the same way while some pretentious guitarist is trying to amaze you with his technicality. And nobody cares that the songs suck. There are exceptions, of course, and the less style definitions, the better the bands. But Judas Priest still rule after so many years and Painkiller will remain one of their finest albums

5.0 out of 5 stars Still my favorite Priest album after all these years.
The only album that anyone needs to buy if they are looking for Judas Priest. This is their heaviest album and is a departure from their other albums.

In the late 80's, after the robotic Priest...Live! and the false start that was Ram It Down, a lot of metal fans wrote off Judas Priest as a vital metal band. Read more
