before priest reducded the length of their songs in the early 80s with albums like british steel and screaming for vengeance they were a rather different beast with much longer songs. out of the pre-british steel albums stained class is problaly the best. songs like exciter, better by you better by me and the peerless beyond the realms of death are the ackownledged classics on the album. however the other tracks like the title track, invader and savage are equally as good. the impact of this album upon thrash can not be underestimated just listen to exciter if you don't believe me. a brillant album and well worth getting.
