This is one of the best damn albums of all time. This kicks some ass. Very freaking heavy for 1976.
Crimson Ghos†
That cover art has aged like a fine wine.

Almost 40 years later this LP still kicks ass, hasn't lost its appeal. Takes me me back to my teens when we were making bonfires in the woods outside of town, drinking beer and listening to heavy metal. I think at some point I'd really like to do that again. Now I'm all grown up and old and shit.

Dreamer Deceiver is one of the greatest songs known to mankind.
Gerald Williams
Rob Halford's singing was up there with the ranks of Freddie Mercury and Bruce Dickinson

For you young folk Victim of Changes was Priest's snarling response to the dominance of bands like the mighty Led Zeppelin. It wasn't just a song, it was a declaration of war. Punk was starting to sizzle as an alternative to the elaborate orchestrations and drug-fueled opulence of bands like Zeppelin. On Victim of Changes they flaunted Zep effortlessly, laying down a lean stripped down nasty blues. They were a young band here. You can hear the influence of American Southern rock both in the mix and execution and in turn Priest, with the twin guitar harmonies, were molding the womb for Maiden. What a fucking time for music.
Michael Cochran
There is nothing better than sitting outside on a nice summer day, sipping bourbon, smoking a cigar, and listening to this album. The more I drink the more I think I can sing like Mr. Halford. But its cool.

when music fit our lifestyles. Only those old enough will understand.
Dave St.Louis
gotta add my 2 cents, at 51 yrs young, having seen Priest 4 times live, Rob Halford is and will always be, in my opinion, the greatest metal God ever, it just doesn't get any better period.. never gets old, they still amaze, Priest forever!!!

Behold tis I the commander- whose grip controls you all ! Resist me NOT ! surrender !-I'll no compassion call ! Tyrant captor of humanity-Tyrant conqueror of all Tyrant hideous destructor-Tyrant every man shall fall Your very lives are held within my fingers- I snap them and you cower down in fear You spineless things who belly down to slither end of the world  you follow to be near....;p)   Epic !!!! ;p)

People think they know music? You haven't heard shit until you've heard this!!! ❤️
Gloom
Something weird about being a teen who likes Judas Priest reading comments about how people who were teens 40 years ago like Judas Priest. Nonetheless, awesome.

afscm23

Flayed Corpses
"most under rated album" my boss at pizza Hut said.
Robert Anderson
One of the ORIGINAL "Big Four" with Black Sabbath, Motorhead, and Iron Maiden.

I had this album on vinyl when I was 12
Mikko Rantanen
Very good stuff! The Ripper, never get tired of that song. Dramatic and good melody and lyrics
CounterSkil
Judas Priest, hitting the dab before it was cool
James K.
Still one of the greatest Heavy Metal albums ever recorded!
Daniel Cross
This album blew me away when I was younger and first bought it!! I loved it so much I bought it twice!!
Evan Davidson
Some of the stuff Priest did set the tone for future metal...I'm pretty sure there's no slayer without kk downing....
DyingCr0w
the further you go in time, the more you realize today's bands have no fukin clue the cool shit they think is awesome has been played over and over decades ago. Funny isn't it?
Flapper Flip
My most loved era of Preist, pre British Steel. Still really like the stuff after but I'm such a sucker for that 70's groove.
JW Far n
amazing album... 1976! 2016 and my first listen. heavy, loud, Sabbath-ish but dare I say better.
dean b
I just discovered Judas Priest - and cannot believe I never heard these great albums
Quiritare Cinema
Happy 40th anniversary!!!!! Excellent album!
frogtastic1000
Dreamer Deceiver, what a great song.
Stephan Oberender
I remember the liner notes to a 90s issue of this album by Geoff Barton: "Somewhere in the true fires of hell this record plays loud and continuously. I pray each night I get that room when I die." I have nothing to add.
Andy Howard
40 Years Ago Today (3/23/76)
Jack Morris
Is that Angel dabbing?
Metal4Life
Victim of Changes is definitely one of Priest's best songs. This album is one of the best to exist.
HeavyMetal Maniac

Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum
hell yes kick ass 2nd album from the british heavy metal legends judas priest. still think us brits are number 1 at metal, stuff like this beats anything the americans did for metal no offence still think there are quite a few good american metal bands. but this is something else. and rob halford is one classic metal singer what a voice. and this is magic.
Jef Rey
One of the all time greatest albums ever
bbqeatinbuckeye
I've often wondered how after all these years of  recording, touring, just hitting those notes at top level; why Rob Halford hasn't blown out a lung or his  throat. I don't know how much vocal training he has but, just try to sing along with him and hopefully you won't black out. Kudos to him.
Sylvain Tessier
i was in vacation. age 8 in 85. find this album at the beach in myrtle beach usa. awesome for a french canadian kid. my parents said lucky you. its magical but evil
Bouchon24
Each time I'm listening to this album, I just can't realize it's from 1976 :/ ... And still, that's how I know why I love my Metal Gods !!!!
mateuszmattias
When I grew up in a small town in the early 80s there was nowhere you could get "older" records (that is older than about five years) so I heard things from about British Steel and onwards. Only many years later as an adult did I get to hear Priest stuff from the 70s, and even though the early 80s records aren't bad, i m o they don't hold a candle to this or Stained Class. Kind of strange to find out as a grown up that one of your favourite bands is in fact even better than you thought as a teenager.
General Nappa
If only some of you had this on vinyl and a great hi-fi system you would know how perfect this album is.
jr55 tex
Catching a ride to class in college in 1975. Guy plugged this 8track in. Mind blown and music tastes changed forever.
211Appolo
One of my favourite tracks is Epitaph. It's not metal, not even rock, but it's just so good. Love the vocals and the piano.
Working Man
For whatever its worth Sad Wings #1 Stained Class #2
Sidnei Marques
Classic Judas. Rob halford doing great vocal jobs. Great album. Time when heavy rock had real feelings. K.K. downing killing in the solos.
DEICIDE

This is my favorite album by them. I've heard all of their stuff, but for whatever reason, this album is just a perfect mix.
There's a starman waiting in the sky
Masterpiece.

Best album ever in any genre in my opinion and I'm mostly into soul.

Paperback Writer
Sad Wings is my favourite Priest album. I'm not saying that everything after that was bad, I like their later albums, but this is just perfect. Every of the 9 songs is amazing. Only Painkiller can be compared to this masterpiece.
liz skill
Who the fak would dislike this album?
carmen guil
A mi también me maravilla como halford pronuncia "Hiddeous destructor".
300leothelion
Thanks for uploading this. Never heard this album before. Kids in bed, wife watching shit downstairs and I've got the iPad in the bedroom listening to an awesome album. Now I know it's good I'm going on eBay to look for it on eBay. Cheers my friend. 👍🇬🇧

40 years ago this killed me. 40 years on and it's still killing me. The absolute best.
SpirituSalis
Awesome album.
Davos Maxwell
Probably the first true example of a HM album straight from the grim and dirty Steel mills of Birmingham UK. Heaviness above all is defined here.
Jeff Olinger
listen little ones, this is how you do it....no dubbing, samples, guest artists. ..rock it Bbaes
Avatar Korra
Dreamer Deceiver was the first Judas Priest song I heard. What an introduction.
