Stained Class is one of Judas Priest's best CD's. It contains Exciter - probably the best speed metal song out at that time. Saints In Hell - Black Sabbath worship done perfectly. Stained Class - the best misanthropic song ever, in my opinion. Heroes End - a tribute to fallen legends like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin that asks "Why do you have to die to be a hero." Beyond the Realms Of Death - few can do ballads like Priest and this is one of thier best, also has one of Glenn Tipton's best guitar solos ever. Invader - awesome guitar sound effects at the start by KK Downing. Savage - makes a great case for modern man being savages. White Heat Red Hot - just a great classic metal tune.

For some, it's "British Steel", for others, it's "Screaming for Vengeance" or "Painkiller".
For me, it's obviously "Stained Class". With such classics such as "Exciter", "Heroes End" and "Saints in Hell", this album is a masterpiece like "Paranoid" from Black Sabbath. With such energy and good riffing, "Stained Class" deserves 5 stars!

This is one of those classic albums that will stand the test of time. Although it was before their best years, Judas Priest show their great talent on this excellent album. 'Better By You, Better Than Me' is a very controversial song, but I think that all that stuff about the song promoting suicide is a load of garbage. Don't believe it. But anyway, this is really a classic album and it figures among their top ones.

This is not only Judas Priests best album , imo its the greatest heavy metal album of all time . Don't confuse this with the candy coated crap from the 80s ie: Screaming.., Defenders... and dare i mention Turbo. This is the good stuff , back when JP was a cutting edge band. No fillers here either. Check out Heroes End, Beyond The Realms , Invader , Savage, Exiter... all metal at its very best

From the pentultimate heavy metal band, you might be suprised that the first three records (1974-1977) were not your typical "heavy metal". However, it was the fourth record,'Stained Class' (1978), added a big dose of distorted guitars and a lot of the lyrical mythology associated with metal music. The only exception is the seemingly pop-ish Spooky Tooth cover, "Better By You Better Than Me", although the song has taken on a sinister life of its own as it was the subject matter of a lawsuit in the late 1980s where the parents of two teens alleged that it contained a subliminal message ("Do It!") that caused their children to commit suicide. Perhaps that is why this song (long out of the live repetoire by the last 1980s) was, almost defiantly, added back to the 1990 tour setlist - as reflected in the live version included here. (FYI: Another song from that 1990 LA show, "Leather Rebel", is included in the 'Painkiller' remaster.)
The other extra track, "Fire Down Below", is an outtake from the 'Ram It Down' sessions (1987) that is actually one of the better studio songs added on this remasters series. The quality of this and the live cover tune means that THIS reissue is worthy of 4 stars.

Stained Class (1978.) Judas Priest's fourth album.
Ever since their formation in the early seventies, Judas Priest was a band that set out to please listeners. Their first album, 1974's Rocka Rolla, didn't really succeed at it though. With their second album, 1976's Sad Wings Of Destiny, they found their sound and drew in a huge cult following. And 1977's Sin After Sin was their first release on a major label. At long last, the band was in the spotlight. Their following was beginning to grow greatly. And in 1978, the band released its fourth studio album, Stained Class. Read on for my review of this album.
The band doesn't waste any time getting right to the rock and roll on this album. The album opens with Exciter, a fast and furious rocker that has gone on to become a fan favorite. It's comparable to Sinner, the track that opened up their previous album. Next up comes another legendary hard rocker, an underrated masterpiece called White Heat Red Hot. Why this song never went onto extreme popularity is beyond me, because it is nothing short of excellent. Track three is a cover of the Spooky Tooth classic, Better By You Better Than Me (for those of you not familar with Spooky Tooth, they're the band that guitarist Mick Jones played in before Foreigner.) This is an EXCELLENT cover, but this version of the song was a source of controversy for many years (it was believed to contain subliminal messages that encouraged suicide.) But, of course, it's the music that matters, not the hidden messages (if there really ARE any.) Invader is an odd but still excellent tune with the theme being an alien invasion. This is NOT the same song as Iron Maiden's Invaders, although there is a striking resemblance between the two.

Let's face it. It was bands like early Priest, early Scorpions with Uli Roth, Sabbath, Hendrix, Blue Oyster Cult, Kiss, Thin Lizzy, Uriah Heep, Alice Cooper, Mountain, AC/DC, etc. that really focused in on and started popularizing this hard rock and metal subgenre bigtime. These bands (and i'm sure i've missed a few others) are the grandfathers of hard rock/metal. Of course, Priest played a major role, since they were unquestionably one of the best to break into the scene, and 'Stained Class' is simply one of the most classic and best metal releases ever. It is energetic, structured, raw, focused, and powerful, with incredible hooks and soaring vocals only as Halford can deliver! I am 42 years young, and I still 'bang my head' to this classic (much to the chagrin of my lovely wife), having grown up listening to it in the late 70's. The digital remaster is superb, giving extra punch, air, and grit to the already tight instrumentals and vocals. The increased dynamics inherent in the remaster will give your system a workout!!! Listen to this CD on let's say, a 200 watt per channel McIntosh amp, good highly revealing Magneplanar speakers, with twin Velodyne subs, and you will achieve EARGASM!!!
