Japanese digitally remastered limited pressing of the band's 1982 album with 2 added bonus tracks 'Prisoner Of Your Eyes' (unreleased) & 'Devil's Child' (live). Packaged in a miniature LP sleeve. CBS. 2005.
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.)
In 1982, Judas Priest released their eighth studio album, Screaming For Vengeance. It's amazing that the band had released eight albums before most heavy metal bands had even released their first! But what's even more amazing is that by the time those bands began surfacing, Priest remained on top. Their popularity in the eighties as heavy metal gods was unrivaled. Just about every band out there has one single album that just about every fan says is the best. With Judas Priest, that album is Screaming For Vengeance. Are all those fans who say it's the best album gravely mistaken, or are they dead-on accurate? Read on for my review.
All those fans who say this is Judas Priest's best album are correct. Sure, Stained Class, Defenders Of The Faith, and Painkiller give this one a serious run for its money, but this is the band's all around best. The Hellion/Electric eye kicks the album off. It's classic fast and furious eighties metal as only the metal gods could pull off. Halford's vocals are priceless. Another Priest classic, a little track called Riding On The Wind, can be found on this album. Many fans call this song their favorite Priest song, and why not? It rocks! Pain And Pleasure and Bloodstone are two of the band's most underrated rockers, and it's a shame these two tracks don't get more credit. Many people say the former is the weakest track on the album, but I don't agree with this at all. I think all the tracks on the album are excellent, and not one is weak in any way. The band's biggest hit, an eighties hard rock assault called You Got Another Thing Comin', can be found on this album. This track is severely overrated, but it's a good song worthy of its lofty reputation.Read more ›

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
