Guest review by

In 1980, Judas Priest released the commercial success of British Steel, an album unlike anything they had done before. Would 1981's Point of Entry emulate this sound? No. However, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. The album is more like their previous works, and while not being an amazing album or groundbreaking by any means, fans of the older Judas Priest sound should appreciate it.

  This album imo has some of the most underrated tracks Priest ever recorded, such as Hot Rockin' and Desert Plains, which is probably the best motorcycle song ever recorded. Heading out to the Highway is also a really great driving song and I love the guitar solo in that song. Hot Rockin' was one of the first Priest songs I ever heard because of the video on VH1 Rocks. I remember seeing the guitar/microphone on fire thing and thinking "damn, this is the most awesome thing ever".

The rest of the album though isn't that good

Rating: 8 The most misunderstood Priest album somehow. I find it more interesting than British Steel. Every song is solid and a few songs are great and belong to my favourite Judas Priest songs.

Rating: 7 Take the first side, replace "Turning Circles" with "Solar Angels" and you got a good EP.

That said, I like the general laid-back vibe of the album, even if some of the songs get awfully generic.

Rating: 4 Desert Plains is top tier Priest, Heading Out the Highway isn't too shabby. The rest is pretty meh.
