Judas Priest, Best of Judas Priest
2003 | Label: eOne Music / Entertainment One Distribution

Operatic vocalist Rob Halford's reunion with Judas Priest in 2003, and the band's subsequent Ozzfest performance, were both greeted in the metal community with an enthusiasm usually reserved for paleontologists digging up the bones of a previously unknown species. And rightfully so. In the '70s and '80s, Priest were the Tyrannosaurus Rex of the metal kingdom, and released at least eight of the most timeless albums of their genre before Halford left the band in… read more »

It's Judas Priest man!

jdc432002

What can I say? It's Judas Priest! However on that note, the few songs that they chose to put on this "sampler" is just that. They give us a few of the better songs and then send us into interviews. Unless you're interested in listening to the great Rob Halford talk your basically only getting a short greatest hits cd.

Hmm - updated album

mlyndersay

When I bought this from e-Music, it was just the songs, now there are some interviews added to the package. This might be a point for e-Music to explore with its customers, when a previous purchase is expanded after it's been bought. Should we get a discount on the additional tracks? A re-download option? That said, this best of covers early music by the band, completists should explore later live and anthology collections now available here.

good comp

Emusica

Good comp, but better just to get the original albums (although Sin after SIn is not here for some reason). The eMusic "review" above though is pointless and should be removed. Not only does it not say anything about the music contained on this album, but this comp is not from 1998 it actually came out in 1978!! But hey what's 20 years between friends right? (It was re-released in 1998 to add the interviews, which I recommend not bothering with.)

Unexpected Covers for $1000, Alex!

szarka

As a whole, these are unspectacular but listenable early tracks. But it blows my mind that Priest covered Joan Baez's "Diamonds and Rust"... Check it out!

pre-classic material

phthoggos

eMusic's reviewer curiously fails to explain that this extremely-misleadingly-titled album only collects the material that Gull/KOCH Records has the rights to -- namely, the material before 1977. Priest didn't really take off until the late 70s and early 80s, and all of their most-well-known material is owned by Columbia records. The "Sad Wings of Destiny" album is fantastic; avoid "Rocka Rolla."

They Say All Music Guide

Released after Stained Class, The Best of Judas Priest is an effective sampler of their first three albums, containing most of the highlights from Rocka Rolla, Sad Wings of Destiny, and Sin After Sin. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
