When I was in junior high school in the early 80's I worshipped Judas Priest. "Point Of Entry" is probably their best album in my opinion...back then they were called "albums" by the way.
"Turning Circles," "Hot Rockin'," "Heading Out To The Highway," "Solar Angels," "Desert Plains" and "Turning Circles" were all great tunes and every once in a while I still crank them up on my RoadRunner Rhapsody Software account for a nostalgic kick.
"British Steel," "Point Of Entry" and "Screaming For Vengeance" were definitely the pinnacle of the group's musical career.
Who could forget the old MTV videos of Heading Out To The Highway and Hot Rockin'? Although Rob Halford's admissions to being openly gay were a bit of a shock to me and my macho, heavy metal listening former self, I still respect and enjoy their music regardless, much like the mainstream still enjoys Queen...music is music.
"You Say Yes," "All The Way," and "Troubleshooter" are also quality tunes from Heavy Metal's glory days on this release that have always been under-appreciated.
While gay, hairy, macho guys in leather might give us heterosexual guys the squeamies, no one knew it back then and the subject material of their songs generally referred to women or just plain macho man antics.
Do I feel "betrayed" by Judas Priest being a former big fan as a girl crazy youngster? No, because I never even felt or saw a bit of sexuality in their music, it was just good, hard rockin' British metal.
Point Of Entry is truly one of the finest Heavy Metal albums ever created.
