Format: Audio CD
This record came out in 1976 before JP dicovered their leather and studs look which every metal band after them adopted. The songs on this album also were written at a time when progressive bands like Led Zep and deep Purple ruled the hard rock world. The songs on here are very different then the songs normally associated with Priest. But consider this: Four of the nine songs from this album made it onto Unleashed In the East, their classic live album released a few years after Sad Wings. There is not a bum track on this album. Among the standouts on a CD full of standouts, Tyrant, my all time favorite JP track, Dreamer Deceiver/ Deceiver which feature the highest notes ever hit by a man, Island of Domination, Genocide, the Ripper. Listen to the lyrics of Epitaph for the surprise ending. This was actually the first JP album I ever heard twenty some odd years ago and it still holds up today. The production is good, and the bass player played the best bass lines he would ever be given. On subsequent JP CD's, Ian Hill just rides his E string. I love Priest, and I love Sad Wings of Destiny. Buy or die.

First and foremost, I give the album in itself 4 stars for being an innovative peice of work! Songs such as "Victim Of Changes", "Tyrant", "The Ripper", and "Dreamer Deciever/Deciever" are true classics!
That being said, The current Koch pressing of it totally blows!
The Low end is boosted as it were a hip-hop album.
In conlusion, If you're gonna buy this album from amazon.com go to the import section and buy the Victor Version, it's much better than the Koch version.

Format: Audio CD
I tend to divide the best of Priest's career into 5 phases.
1. Early hard rock period - "Roca Rolla","Sad Wings of Destiny"
2. Early heavy metal period -"Stained Class", "Hell Bent for Leather"
3. Early Sell out attempts -"Point of Entry", "British Steel"
4. Stadium Rock period -"Screaming for Vengeance", "Defenders of the Faith"
5. Period of Decline -"Turbo" and onward.
The reason why I break up the albums like this is because Priest really is a different band in all these eras. Trying to rank albums is hard because they are of different styles in different periods. That said, I think "Sad Wings" is amazing. Les Binks, who will turn out to be a weak link when Priest gets heavier is in his element here. Halford's singing here also has not yet turned to screaming, and his voice can be admired for its range and his singing ability. "Stained Class" is the next album of mention. Here Halford's voice is turned into a metal voice by some clever effects and harder singing. "Stained Class" is just a great album, and is one of the heaviest albums I have ever heard period. Moving along, I think that "British Steel" is another album of mention. Here, Dave Holland replaces Les Binks on drums, and Oh what a difference it makes. Welcome the machine on drums -his playing is so loud and mechanical, almost clinical. "Point of entry" is one of their worst albums -so clear of an early attempt to sell out. Finally, "Screaming for Vengeance" and "Defenders of the Faith" are just outstanding. "Screaming" is more raw, and a little better in my opinion, but "Defenders" has a stadium sized bigness of sound that you will realize that this amazing band is at the peak of their career.

This album is by far one of the best metal albums let alone one of the Priest albums. It has a very Black Sabbath "Paranoid" and Hawkwind feel to it, but it is distinctly early Priest. It rocks from beginning to end! Buy it!

SAD WINGS OF DESTINY is Judas Priest's second album, and one of heavy metal's true essential albums. Rob Halford's vocals is truly on forefront on this album, & KK Downing & Glenn Tipton's twin guitar attack is revolutionary. Blistering is the word that I can describe regarding this album. The album gives a true hint of what Judas Priest is capable of becoming. Judas Priest's second release is one of the true influential albums in the metal genre & the band is indeed one of the greatest acts of all time.

Great album, Metal lives,and the Priest is back! to many classics to talk about here. victim of changes, the ripper, deciever and the rest are priest at their best. If you want the best hard rock/Metal album that there is, get this one because it's a classic.
