Sound — 8
Judas Priest's original line-up reunited last year. Somehow they have already come out with an album almost as good as Painkiller and British Steel. The single Revolution was a genius peace of classic metal. Although the album features some less the powerful ballads.
Lyrics — 8
Supprisingly some of these lyrics are pretty gloomy and self-loathing. But some are incredible. They almost all have something to do with the reformation and the events during the breakup. They aren't as deep as the old Judas Priest. Rob Halfords voice is incredible. He hits some notes that he probably have never hit before.
Overall Impression — 8
Judas Priest's original lineup reunited last year. Somehow they have already come out with an album almost as good as Painkiller and British Steel. Compared to most of the rock and metal albums out today it kicks some major ass, compared to the old Judas albums its mediocre. Without some of the power ballads this album could have easily rivaled albums from Judas Priest's hayday. I would buy it again and again. The bonus features are incredible! If you like metal you will love this album.
