Angel of Retribution is a gem to behold in the metal world. Judas Priest returns with their original vocalist Rob Halford and you could not ask for more. Halford gives his finest, and the confidence of the rest of the band radiates out of the CD. You will be grabbed by this CD the moment it fades into "Judas Rising". "Judas Rising" is a perfect compass to the album. The heavy beats and classic high-pitched Halford are reminiscent of the days of "Jugulator"; especially "Cathedral Spires". If this song appeals to you, you will certainly not be disappointed by the remaining songs. The sounds are similar but not repetitive and that is important. They keep an identity throughout the album; a sort of cohesive creativity. These attributes hold true for all songs with the exception of the final three.

Nostradamus in my opinion was not a bad albulm but not their best also... curious to see how epitaph will sound without KK

Yes, but Nostradamus was a different kind of Priest album, so I'm excluding that one. But it wasn't as bad as some people described it although I can understand why it wasn't very well accepted.

Rating: 9 I love this album! As a comeback album for Priest, I really couldn't have asked for more. I love the variation of material, they covered a lot of their career stylewise, with this album.

  "Hellrider", "Deal With The Devil" and "Angel" alone makes this album worth every listen.

Rating: 5 Ok reality check time- their worst album with Halford and yes I'd put it below Turbo, Point of Entry, and Ram it Down..A tired Priest on total auto-pilot and an almost senseless if not underwhelming return for Halford as well. Judas is Rising and Angel would be good 2nd or 3rd tier songs on Priest's past albums, but that's about it. Loch Ness hints at the direction they'd take on Nostradamus, but I can't call it a worthwhile song.
