I left Judas Priest behind a long time ago. I loved all the early stuff, Sad Wings of Destiny, Sin After Sin, right up to Killing Machine and then they Lost me...Dire tunes like Breaking the Law lost me completely!
So when I read a few reviews of this I thought "should I give them another go?" Well I did and boy am I glad about it. This album is the sort of thing they should have done years ago. Well structured, interesting and Mr Halford's vocals are exactly what they should be, in a league that Ronnie James Dio would be proud of. From the first play I realised that "this is QUALITY" As prog metal goes it's as good as anything Porcupine Tree or Dream Theatre have done, if not better,because you know that somewhere along the line those two guitars are gonna do that "Judas Priest thing" that used to set them apart. Somebody else wrote that this is a classic rock album, but people won't recognise it until it gets seen in context with other albums of it's time - I think they are right.
This album is a pleasure to listen to..MORE PLEASE, Mr Halford and co.

I am a new time fan of Judas Priest and I have to say when I got this album it was worth the wait. Brilliant music and the artwork in the book was mind blowing in my opinion. Very good buy, very happy customer.

I have been a Priest fan since the beginning and I am truly enthralled by this piece . I t just gets better and better the more times you hear it. Rob Halford is better than ever and his voice and range remain forever ausome. Glenn and KK are at their best and Iif they take this album on tour then I for one will most definitely be there.

Been a Preist fan for a long time, and general metal fan. Decent album all round. Some hit songs that are instant, some that take time and grow on you. Just seen them on toue in Manchester (feb 2009) and they were awesome. Say them play some of the tracks of f this album that changed my opineon. Strong album and can't really knock it.

  Definatley a grower.....

After the awesome Angel of Retribution , and as a Priest fan of 30 years , I had high hopes of this one .At first I thought it was a joke , however after a few times it does start to sound better . Yes its pompous in the extreme but fair play to the Priest for exploring new ground and as they start the current live show with Dawn of Creation and Prophesy they are clearly proud of this opus. If you,re looking for classic Priest this one aint for you , if you,re looking for ,er, prog-metal, this is bang on!! As I say , not what I was expecting but a worthy effort none the less.

this is by far the best metal album ive listened to in many years,,100 minutes over 2 cds of amazing heavy metal,its a concept album with not just drums and guitars but also keyboards,synths and classical strings,,,buy this album and trust me,you will be blown away,,,,,,,,they took some time recording this and it shows,because its not a rushed album like many metal albums lately,,,,,

  The Mighty Priest Have Aged Badly

I am a huge fan of Priest and I think the previous album is awsome, but this one unfortunalely is weak and uninspired. Most of the tracks have no reason of being in the album and are exremely boring. Don't get fooled by the tremendous title track and the very good "visions" that leaked a month ago. There is no other track to match them. The lyrics are a laughing matter and the overall sound is filled with keyboards and fake drums. If you insist on buying, buy the simple version as the deluxe edition offers nothing more than a plain stupid booklet with amateur artwork.
