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

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.)
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.

This is the Priest that I love - great sound production, catchy guitar riffs, very melodic vocals - even for a heavy metal album. Read morePublished 12 months ago by J. Boisvert
This album is a gem. How these guys went from selling out arenas to having trouble selling tickets in my home town, I'll never know. Read morePublished on April 20 2013 by Andrew
