Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

After releasing Screaming for Vengeance in 1982, Judas Priest began a creative slide from which they've never recovered. However, if you're going to be remembered for something, it might as well be a record as heavy, incisive, and melodic as Screaming. The disc features the band's biggest hit, "You've Got Another Thing Coming," a sonic inferno that is as hook-laden as it is heavy. But the album also contains uncompromising turbo-blasts such as the title track and the steely "Electric Eye." Throughout, Rob Halford growls and sings in a voice that could at high volumes kill rodents and small dogs, and guitarists K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton unleash their arsenal of inspired and engaging riffs. Classic. The 2001 remastered reissue includes two bonus tracks--a previously unavailable studio extra called "Prisoner of Your Eyes" and a live take on "Devil's Child." --Jon Wiederhorn

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what Metal is all about! Oct. 17 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album provided Priest with a "radioable" single (You've Got Another Thing comin') without selling out. It also opened the touring door to the US for all other Metal acts that followed from Maiden to Metallica. This tour was covered by an American entertainment TV show called PM Magazine, the predecessor to Entertainemnt Tonight. This was the beginning of the golden age for Heavy Metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priest's finest hour June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the Summer of 1982, English hard rockers Judas Priest released their most successful album entitled Screaming for Vengeance. This album was produced by Tom Allom(whom had produced their previous two offerings, 1980's British Steel and 1981's Point of Entry) and was recorded in Spain and Florida. This album still sounds great today(in 2004) especially Rob Halford's singing, which was just smoking on this album. From the classic opening The Hellion/Electric Eye medley(which had one of Rob Halford's best lead vocal performances ever as he sings in a lower octave then going to snarl) to the classics Bloodstone and Take These Chains(which was the only track not penned by frontman Rob Halford and guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing whom penned the rest of the tracks on this classic album) to the hard rocking title track(with Rob's classic falsetto screaming vocal which would make Linkin Park's lead singer runaway after being assaulted in a fight) to the classic rock radio staple You've Got Another Thing Coming. The latter track was the reason why this album became Judas Priest's first Top 20 album in the States and their first Multi-Platinum album and their most successful. At a time when fluff like Duran Duran, Human League, Kajagoogoo and A Flock of Seagulls were big, this album and Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast were a breath of fresh air saying that NEW WAVE was fluff and METAL was going to be king! This album is still a classic. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Priest Album May 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Well, this, in my opinion, must be JP's greatest LP. The awesome intro to the album with Hellion leading right into Electric Eye is dominating at first, but then you drive right into some equally massive tunes. After riding on the wind, a mediocre song, you are blown away by Bloodstone, with a super intro riff and a great chorus, thanks to rob, but that is just the beginning. (Take These)Chains is a great song, as is Pain and Pleasure (awesome guitar), but then the cd climaxes with such great tunes as the MTV favorite You've Got Another Thing Comin, the title song Screaming for Vengeance, and then my favorite song on the album, the AC/DC reminiscent Devil's Child. Album version is simple but insanely awesome, and the live version lives up to the studio in every aspect.
All in all, Screaming for Vengeance is the best non-compilation album... such great songs as were mentioned cannot be compared.
(Most people disagree with my opinion, but I do not think that Priest went downhill from here. They did experience a time of synthisizers and all that stuff (turbo), but they were just victims of changes. I think Ripper did a great job while he was here, and their later albums were better than some of their earlier LPs.)

5.0 out of 5 stars At their prime May 10 2004
By S B
Format:Audio CD
This is quite simply the best Judas Priest record in the middle of their prime (1980-1984), and no hard rock/metal collection should be without it. With the remastering, this is perhaps their best sounding record. Every facet of metal music is represented and executed flawlessly - the speed ("Screaming for Vengeance", "Riding on the Wind"), the gothic ("Devil's Child"), the sexual ("Pain and Pleasure"), the sci-fi ("Electric Eye"), the political ("Bloodstone"), the pop hits ("You've Got Another Thing Comin'"), and the ballads ("Take These Chains", "Fever").
The remaster also contains two bonus tracks, as do all the Sony remasters, but unfortunately the song choice is not exactly apropo to the particular record and very little insight is provided in the liner notes. "Devil's Child" is a live version from a 1982 Memphis show - the DVD of which will be released with the 'Metalogy' box set (2004). (FYI: From the same show, the live version of "Screaming for Vengeance" is on the 'Priest Live' remaster and "Bloodstone" is on the 'Ram It Down' remaster.) "Prisoner of Your Eyes" is a studio outtake from the 'Turbo' sessions (1986) - a ballad that was originally written for a Julio Iglasias duet.
