Ram it Down and Turbo were the first 2 Priest albums i was introduced to. To a guy who grew up with Guns n Roses and Metallica in the late 80s early 90s- this album and Turbo seemed to fit in with the mindless power and aggression that GnR and Metallica had and fit in well. In fact i felt that Ram it down and Turbo were so good that i went on to collect many more Priest albums, sin after sin all the way to the live in london set. With a Band like Judas Priest, any CD with Halford in the lead just totaly rocks for me. Just dont bother with the Ripper years after Halford- (in my opinion) death metal, "burn in hell" is that a good image for a legendary band?

THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED HEAVY METAL ALBUMS. I CAN'T FOR THE LIFE OF ME UNDERSTAND WHY NO ONE LIKES THIS ALBUM. IT'S EVERYTHING METALHEADS HAD HOPED FOR AFTER THE SLICK-SOUNDING TURBO. IT'S FAST, IT'S LOUD, IT'S OBNOXIOUS AND VIOLENT. IN OTHER WORDS, THIS IS A GREAT METAL ALBUM. ALSO THE COVER PACKS A HARD PUNCH (NO PUN INTENDED). THE PRIEST BOYS PAY HOMAGE TO THE MOST DAZZILING OF MUSICAL STYLES IN 'HEAVY METAL', AND DO COVERS OF CHUCK BERRY SONGS, (JOHNNY B GOOD). THIS IS THE MOST SEVERELY UNDERRATED ALBUM IN ALL OF HEAVY METAL, AND IT TRULY SUCKS THAT IT HAS NOT FOUND IT'S PLACE AMONG ALL THE OTHER PRIEST ALBUMS THAT WERE JUST AS GOOD.

After the debacle that was 'Turbo' (1986), Priest returned to the studio with a lot of edgier tracks left over from those sessions. Also returning for the last time were long-time producer Tom Allom and drummer Dave Holland, who were both present when Priest's prime years began with 'British Steel' (1980). Unfortunately, speed metal (Metallica, Slaywer, etc.) had become the "in" thing in the hardcore metal crowd, so attempts to repeat the success of previous efforts with metal-lite tunes like "I'm a Rocker", "Johnny B. Goode", and "Come and Get It", rendered this record relatively unsuccessful. But even the most discriminating Priest fan has to give an A for effort with power-metal entries like the pseudo-industrial "Blood Red Skies", the menacing "Monsters of Rock", and the speedy title track.
The sound of the record benefits somewhat from remastering, but (as with many of the Priest remasters) the extra tracks do not have any contextual connection with this record. "Night Comes Down" is a live version of a great ballad from a 1984 show in Long Beach, and "Bloodstone" is a live version from a 1982 show in Memphis. (FYI: If you want to check out the ACTUAL outtakes from 'Ram It Down', get "Fire Down Below" from the 'Stained Class' remaster and "Thunder Road" from the 'Point of Entry' remaster.)

After Priest made a more slick, poppy sound on Turbo, they bounced back with their heaviest album to date. It screams, punches, roars, and howls. Rob's voice is very schreechy on this album-YIPPEE!! Although Blood Red Skies does have some synth effects, it is still one of Priest's best songs. Many did not like this album at the time of its release, saying it was kind of filler. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nothing is filler about it. it is all very heavy, very metal-centric music. It is very good.

so after slow cd of turbo,priest came out with concert video fuel for life tour from dallas,tx in 1987 was when i first watched the video.when you watch this concert video,you will know that the priest is back and better and heavier then ever before with ear piecing high vocals and deep low vocals incredibal guitars and this proves priest is heavy metal.so when i got ram it down,i knew priest was gonna be alot heavier than ever before and they were.judas priest was at the time in the summer of 88 alot more heavier than ever before,that cd was king during the summer of 88 as alotta people played it outdoors up at the lakes and heard people listening to it in cars.this is a killer heavy metal album,but judas priest couldve been alot heavier than this easily and they were in the next album painkiller.

ram it down is one lousy album. good guitar work and pretty good vocals, but horrible songs. the title track is good, but rest of the album is poor. Blood red skies is decent, but love zone, come and get get, I'm a rocker all are weak. The album is filled with weak sounding drum machines and bad song writing. Ram it down is one album to skip

I agree that the lyrics here are sometimes nauseating, but as far as the music goes, this is a very solid record. It's hard and rough. Also, Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing display the beginning of the shredding technique they would use with great skill in Painkiller.
What I don't understand here is Dave Holland's drumming. It seems that producer Tom Allom was making everything possible to mess the sound of his drums with each passing record since his debut in British Steel, finally succeeding in transforming it in a lifelees mechanic sound, what is a shame, since Dave is a great drummer (Check his work with TRAPEZE).
RAM IT DOWN is not a bad album at all. No doubt it still suffered the influence of hair metal, but is fine heavy metal record, full of cliches and cheesy chorus, but with Judas Priest`s traditional ability flowing from the first to the last song. The bonus tracks, as with most bonus from this series, are not a big deal.
