Judas Priest: Painkiller

Released: Sep 3, 1990. Genre: Heavy Metal, Speed Metal. Label: Columbia. Number Of Tracks: 10. "Painkiller" is a qualified success - the album's Achilles' heel is its lyrics, which rarely depart from standard-issue odes to heavy metal rebellion and comic book/fantasy themes.

Judas Priest: Metal Works 73-93

Released: May 18, 1993. Genre: Heavy Metal. Label: Columbia. Number Of Tracks: 32 (2CD). Although the double-disc "Metal Works '73-'93" is an intoxicating listen, it isn't quite the definitive Judas Priest retrospective it could have been.

Judas Priest: A Touch Of Evil Live

Released: Jul 14, 2009. Genre: Heavy Metal. Label: Sony, Epic. Number Of Tracks: 11. It's no "Unleashed in the East," but it's a worthy concert document of where Judas Priest are in the current phase of their career. The audio quality is top notch; you'll feel like you were in the crowd, throwin' horns and bangin' your noggin.

Judas Priest: Turbocompact discs
Judas Priest: Turbo

Released: Apr 14, 1986. Genre: Heavy Metal. Label: Columbia. Number Of Tracks: 9. "Turbo", while far from perfect and failing to become a massive commercial success, is still being unfairly dismissed to this day. I think that everyone with even a casual interest in Priest pre-"Painkiller" should give it a chance.
