This album is an absolute classic! No fillers here...So damn hard hitting when the boys deliver the goods...Timeless classic that can't be described in words...

From: GodOD69 Date: August 29, 2003 at 20:26
Have to admit I have a lot of Judas Priest tapes. Not many CDs but a lot of the cover CDs with all the latest metal bands singing Priest tunes. Hell Bent & Green Manalishi are 2 awesome songs tho!

From: Kim HP Date: October 9, 2003 at 22:49
I rank this as the 4rd best Priest album of the 70's. That's not to say it's bad. Far from it. Highlights: "Deliverin' the Goods", "Take on the World" and of course "Hell Bent, Hell Bent for Leather"...

From: Big Papa K Date: July 7, 2004 at 17:55
They turn a little more commercial here than the past, with songs such as "Evening Star" and "Take On The World". But this contains probably two of the bands best songs ever in "Delivering The Goods" and "Hell Bent For Leather". 9/10

From: metal rulz Date: December 21, 2004 at 22:58
Another classic by the Priest! I love almost all the album. But, Evening Star? That song sounded like a shit...not to say that's bad about the album, but I didn't like the Priest doing such a song like that...the rest is awesome.

From: schenker fan Date: July 3, 2005 at 17:31
Probably Priest's SECOND best, AFTER "Stained Class" The highlights RULE: "Hell Bent..." "Green Manalishi" "Killing Machine" and "Running Wild" Interestingly, "Green Manalishi" is a...Fleetwood Mac COVER! That one and "Running Wild" are the 2 standouts

From: KISS Date: August 31, 2005 at 5:50
Unlike its great predecessor Stained Class, which was full of dark, grim metal, this album is more (hard)rock and even poprock(before the dawn, evening star) in some places. It is more assessible which would pave the way for british steel and screaming for vengeance later on.Anyway, this album is still an influential metal classic, groundbreaking for the time...which has a strong influence on band like diamond head, iron maiden, saxon a year later.

this album is priests best 1970s album together with sad wings of destiny!!!great album!!!highly recommended!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 16, 2016 at 11:19
In Europe,or at least in Spain,this album was titled "Killing Machine"..."Take on the World" is my fave track...some other fine moments are cuts such as 1,2,3,4,6 & 8...all classics!...85/100

From: playhogan Date: June 9, 2017 at 20:56
This is a killer release. I have the 24K Gold Disc release by Audio Fidelity in 2010. I must say it is the worst HDCD I have ever heard. It really sounds bad for some reason. Other than that this is a great album.

From: hair metal again Date: January 28, 2022 at 15:23
very good release once again for JUDAS PRIEST with a big variety of songs that keep the interest high but somehow doesnt make it a s solid as it could be!of course we re talking about the pioneers of heavy metal and you can find some classics like "hell bent for leather","delivering the goods"!all the JUDAS PRIEST albums are essential
