4.0 out of 5 stars �Good intentions pave the way to hell� Feb. 18 2004
By barna_d
Format:Audio CD
This album is showing former Deep Purple and future Rainbow bassist Roger Glover as producer - but the way he could have pushed f.e. Nazareth four years earlier didn't succeed alike with Judas Priest. I mean this case he pushed forward the Deep Purple-scheme of complexity, long solos etc. but with songs of which neither the riffs nor the vocal melodies were catchy enough to keep the excitement along. (Oh if he has pursued this receipt on the later Rainbow albums!)
So all in all I have to say this album - of which title is taken from the classic song 'Genocide' - as some tracks on it are a bit too long. (And I don't mean the long and monotonous but very atmospheric ballad 'Here Come The Tears'.)
It praises the ingenuity of these musicians how they covered Joan Baez's acoustic song 'Diamonds And Rust' that became one of their finest hard and at the same time catchingly melodious tunes. But when you listen to 'Unleashed In The East' it becomes obvious how some tracks from this album could hit with a better sound. Another summit of the record is the short and extremely aggressive closing track 'Dissident Aggressor' - no wonder that it was covered by Slayer on 'South Of Heaven'.
In short this record is not bad, by far not the worst, but if preceding 'Sad Wings Of Destiny' is a thunder, it is just a plopping rain.

Sin After Sin is often received with mixed emotions. Firstly, it isn't a commercial music product at all, which makes it fascinating. A masterpiece to be slowly digested. This album is one of Priest's most intriguing, yet brilliant productions. It touches many musical ranges... it is heavy (ie. the Sinner), brutally heavy (Dissident Aggressor), furious (Call for the Priest), soft and moody (Last Rose of Summer), atmospheric (Raw Deal) and soulful (Here Come the Tears), et all.
Rob Halford's vocals and lyrics are at their peak here. Glenn and KK's guitars are imaginative, skillful and impressive. Ian Hill's bass is... hmmm, let's better skip that with Simon Phillip's (then still an teenager!!!) incredible drumming. Until this day I still can't believe some of the prodigious and intricate drums parts he laid down for those sessions (unfortunately, he only acted as a session player). Simon started a whole thrashy drum movement with his dexterity in Sin After Sin.
Roger Glover's production here is frequently critized for not achieving a heavier sound, but I disagree with that, as the end result is just what was needed musically.
The real beauty of Sin After Sin is that one can actually listen to many new subtle things each time one listens to it, no matter how many times played back... and that simply doesn't happen often these days. IT HAS MAGIC ALL OVER IT. This is a must item in any rock CD collection. A timeless classic and my favorite Priest album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sin after sin, priest's 2nd classic album Jan. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
After releasing their 2nd minor label album "Sad wings of destiny" in 1976, which I consider being Judas Priest's first classic and most crucial to what's going to be heard in metal for the following years, the band released in 1977 "Sin after Sin". Though I find it not as good as the previous one, excellent pieces of metal can be heard on this album.
This album was the only one to feature the session drummer Simon Phillips, replacing Alan Moore, who had apparently no idea of how great the band was going to be. Simon Phillips will later join the group Toto : you can hear his drums on the albums "Tambu" and "Mindfields".
My personnal ratings are :
Sinner - A
A classic rock song. It's good but quite fast boring at the end.
The chorus is average.
Diamonds and Rust - A
Another classic, but the chorus is just average and a little annoying.
Starbreaker - A+
This is my favorite song on the CD. Rob Halford sings all lyrics. This song has an excellent rhythm.
Last rose of summer - C- : I was looking for a good Judas Priest ballad, but this one is pretty asleeping
Let us prey... - C+
D+ for the beginning of the song which is a plain Queen imitation (not that I don't like Queen but this is annoying),
A+ for the guitar solo which is excellent.
Raw deal - A+
This one is pure enjoyment, melodic guitar, slow rhythm, best Halford's vocals.
Here come the tears - B-
This is another quite boring ballad, but better than the 'Last rose of summer'.
Dissident aggressor - D+
This song is awful, it's noisy, messy, not the Priest I like ! Though, many like it and it was included on 'Metal Works' compilation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile Trip March 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
The only worthwhile moment in three years of visiting my parents in South Carolina while I was in college was that one afternoon I picked up a radio station playng "Sinner". It was a new album at the time and I would have probably never heard it if not for that afternoon. It would be difficult to pick a high point on this CD, with Sinner, Diamonds and Rust and Call for the Priest, it doesn't let up. Great find, great buy, great disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly underrated tour de force! April 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think Sin After Sin is the greatest Judas Priest album of all time. Other albums like Stained Class and Sad Wings of Destiny are also amazing, but it's just something about this album that makes it much better.
The record kicks off with the incredible "Sinner" with amazing vocals by Rob Halford and plenty of guitar solos. "Diamonds and Rust" (originally done by Joan Baez) is one of the greatest cover songs I've ever heard. "Starbreaker" is great, but could have been improved a little. The ballad "Last Rose of Summer" is magnificent and rather catchy. "Let Us Prey" is a fast-tempo song that totally rocks. "Call for the Priest/Raw Deal" is another hard rocking song with a powerful closing. "Here Come the Tears" is another ballad with amazing guitarwork. Finally, the incredible "Dissident Aggressor" will blow you away.
I am reviewing this album based on the original version (I have the old cassette) and I am very pleased with this record. Even if you are a casual Priest fan, you'll be doing yourself a favor by getting this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff
Hafta admit, I dig Priest. At this stage, Halford was still exploring as a lead voice. Songwriting is solid. Put out with a session drummer, but works great

4.0 out of 5 stars Columbia Debut
This was Priest's first USA release. It was released in 1977 on Columbia Records, and the result is a solid piece of work. I would rank this in the Top 5 of all of their albums. Read more
