Post Judas Priest-Redeemer Of Souls
What's the verdict on this album? The reviews I've read haven't been positive. They say there's a lot of "filler" material. I think I'm going to save my money and pass.

It'll be the #1 pick of the BW&BK writers, though! :m:

I like it. It's not their best album by a long shot, but it's certainly not their worst album.

It's not perfect, but I wasn't expecting a masterpiece. I was hoping for something good enough, and they delivered the goods in that regard.

My friends in the local metal scene like the album.

Listened last night. There are a few weak tracks but overall I was pleasantly surprised. Halford doesn't sound as weak as on the last album. He switches up his delivery in places to hide it, but he's still Halford. There are strong Priest riffs throughout. I'll pick it up.

I think it's better than anything they've done since Painkiller. Way more consistent than Angel of Retribution. There have been some gripes about the production but I think it sounds really good. The band doesn't sound like they're trying to do anything but be the Priest we all know and love. Not groundbreaking, but really good.

Right. He knows he has to sing this stuff live. Also, I think he works well with what he has left.

It has their highest ever Billboard debut position; it debuted at #6.

That's because metal fans are the only people who still buy albums. Well, I guess folkies do too. But after they sell to their 27 friends, their album sales drop off quick.

I wonder if it's possible that JP's will outsell Sabbath's latest. Or am I only dreaming?

Doubts.

Quote:
Almost 43 years after Black Sabbath debuted on the Billboard 200 chart, the iconic rock band earns its first No. 1 album this week with the arrival of "13." The set starts at No. 1 with 155,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Not a bad album. I agree that there are some really strong tracks, and some that are filler, that the production could be better and some of the lyrics are cringe worthy, yes. Still a fairly solid album. Let's see if it has any staying power.
