I mean, at least it wasn't as bad as the singles made it out to be, but it's still not good. There were a few deep cuts on here that showed glimmers of hope ("Algorithm", "Blockades", "The Void"), but the album felt so cheap and rushed, like the band released Dig Down as a stand alone single over a year ago and then went "Hey, we should write an album around this" and then wrote a discount Stranger Things soundtrack to fill out another ten tracks, with ... read more

On Priests 17th studio outing, the don't cover any new ground, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. This album is leagues above it's predecessor Nostradamus, in the way that there is actually memorable content on this album. Despite this, Redeemer of Souls still has some pretty big issues that stop it from being a good album. First, the production is awful, the guitars sound flat and all the guitar solos are really low in the mix for some reason, which takes away from the intensity of some ... read more

With their 16th studio album, Priest create a rock opera double album about the life of Nostradamus. Sounds cool on paper right?

The production ... read more

Rob Halford returns as Priest's frontman on this album, and he comes back with a bang. After the different sound of Demolition, Angel of Retribution returns to the bands more classic sound, but this album has much more maturity and variety than past Halford Priest albums. This record features solid tracks, with Halford's vocals sounding better than ever in my opinion. The album also features the bands longest track, the 13 minute epic closing track "Lochness", which I feel was a great ... read more

Probably the biggest step in quality from a previous album in the Priest discography. Demolition effectively improves upon every problem I had with Jugulator, and is easily the best record the band did with Tim Owens. On this record, Owens adopts his own vocals style rather than trying to copy Halford, the production is better, the songwriting is improved and there is a whole lot of variety, and it all makes for a memorable Priest album.
