4.0 out of 5 stars "Oh everbody breaks down sooner or later" July 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Judas Priest's 1981 Point of Entry was the follow-up to the classic British Steel. Speaking in vinyl terms, if Point of Entry consisted of the entire first side and "Solar Angels" from side two, it would be 5-star and Priest's most solid album. Unfortunately, it continues with some of Priest's worst tracks.
First, the best stuff: The first three songs also sport music videos available on the video Fuel for Life. "Heading Out to the Highway" is the best of the bunch, but "Don't Go" and "Hot Rockin'" are also excellent, catchy tracks. I really like "Turning in Circles." It is a fun, kick back rocker. "Desert Plains" is excellent. It is a slower track dominated by some thundering drums by Dave Holland (now serving 8 years for a sexual assault conviction). The song transports its listener across desert plains. It is very well done. "Solar Angels" doesn't blow one away but is a solid, catchy track. It is almost of the style of a British Steel song as it is a driving, repetitive song with no chorus (like "Rapid Fire" and "Steeler"). If it had the grinding guitar sound, it would fit very well on British Steel.
Now for the bad stuff: The rest of the album is terrible. "You Say Yes" is just annoying, especially the chorus. The quiet bridge is the best part. Parts of "All the Way" sound a little like "Don't Have to Be Old to Be Wise," but it is not in the same league as that excellent British Steel track. "Troubleshooter" is also annoying and "On the Run" is a little better, but not by much. The bonus track "Thunder Road" is, well, "thundering" but is not Point of Entry-era, so that's a little disappointing. From what I've read, the bonus live track was also recorded years later. Although this album breaks down at the end, the best tracks are so good that this album is still worthy of 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poppy but rocky June 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I maybe be just a stupid white boy but, I do believe that this album is better than British Steel and Screaming for Vegenance by far. Yes, I do realize just how popish it is however the riffs are catchy and lyrics just as good. I think this album is more about the real world rather than like figurative language(that talk of snakes and eyes and stuff). I definately recommend this to Judas fans it is real good.

3.0 out of 5 stars More commercial Priest May 10 2004
By S B
Format:Audio CD
Although not as good as 'Hell Bent for Leather' (1978) and not as bad as 'Turbo' (1986), 'Point of Entry' (1981) IS an exercise is popish hard rock (as opposed to heavy metal). It was clearly an attempt to capitalize on the success of their first real hit single, "Living After Midnight", and the record spawned three videos, although I do not remember seeing any of them in heavy rotation on MTV. Although this record ranks on the bottom of most Priest fans' lists, it does boast two classic tracks that make it worth the price of admission - "Heading Out to the Highway" and "Desert Plains" - which remain live staples.
As with the other Priest remasters, there are extra tracks. The live version of "Desert Plains" is actually taken from a 1986 Turbo-era show (despite what the liner notes state), and the studio track, "Thunder Road", although consistent with the theme of this record is actually a good outtake from 'Ram It Down' (1988) (actually some of the lines were lifted and used in "I'm a Rocker").

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic release but not original cover May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Almost everyone mention "BRITISH STEEL" (1980) and "SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE" (1982) when it comes to Judas Priest's finest work. This album, "POINT OF ENTRY" (1981) is kind of Priest's lost album even though it's a great album. It might not be as hard and heavy as "BRITISH STEEL", nor as catchy and melodic as "SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE" but Halford & Co delivers a great bunch of rocking tunes; especially "Heading out to the highway" and "Hot rocking" which both are among the best in Judas Priest's recording career. I dare to say that all of the songs on this album are good indeed and "POINT OF ENTRY" is without doubt one of the classic Priest albums. All of the songs have character and the material does not melt together which makes the album very pleasant. I assure you that you'll play this one year after year without growing tired of it
