Excellent album from start to finish! The true gods of metal!

From: Scandinavia Date: September 3, 2003 at 12:12
Priest back in the saddle on this one....Great!

From: Kim HP Date: October 9, 2003 at 22:54
The second best Priest album ever after, close after 'Stained Class'. If you don't own this album, simply don't call you a metal fan anymore. Need a description? Well I'm sure you've heard most of these tracks already. "Electric Eye" and "Screaming for Vengeance" are two of the best metal songs ever written. "Bloodstone", "Devil's Child" and "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" are also outstanding Priest classics.

Great classic Heavy Metal, the best album from Priest.

From: Christine Date: February 1, 2004 at 6:20
This was my first exposure to Priest... every song is amazing, and still one of my favorites.

very good!!! better than much other releases of this band...

From: Big Papa K Date: July 7, 2004 at 18:02
This album tends to get overrated. Sure, tunes such as the title track, "You've Got Another Thing Coming", "Electric Eye", and "Riding On The Wind" are excellent. The rest, while fine, is nothing special. Still, the good makes this album an 8/10

From: holy metal Date: September 5, 2004 at 4:06
JUDAS one of the best metal bands and screaming for vengeance the best album of judas; judas is amazing on recors but in live are the best.

From: RATTLEHEAD Date: September 12, 2004 at 22:11
Best fucking Judas Priest album ever.

From: metal rulz Date: December 21, 2004 at 23:22
After the disappointment on Point Of Entry the PRIEST comes with a VENGEANCE! This is a great album! I love it all! And this is when they made it big on the states (as some people say). This is one not to miss! Find it and buy it...if you can't, steal it!

From: Metalhead66 Date: December 22, 2004 at 9:27
This is my fav Priest album. It is the Pinnacle of 80's Metal!!!!!!10/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 14, 2005 at 11:17
Another Great Album from Judas, sin duda otro gran trabajo que junto a los Maiden las 2 mejores bandas del Heavy Metal(Zepellin, Purple o Sabbath seran los pioneros y los que mas influencia dieron, pero Maiden y Judas son Incomparables aparte de que sus grandes obras son de los 80 con esa atmosfera que tuvo la decada que Jamas sera igualada por ninguna otra hasta el final de los dias) otro disco Imprescindible en toda coleccion de un amante del mejor Metal de siempre.

From: Andrew Date: June 11, 2005 at 23:33
One of the best metal albums of the 80's, if not all-time. I didn't think it was possible to have so many killer guitar solos on one album! 10/10.

From: KISS Date: August 31, 2005 at 6:24
In many eyes, this could be priest's quessential album-i agree! But musically(orginality, creativity, consistentcy) wise, painkiller and priest's 70's output(apart form the debut!) is better. That said, the only excellent songs here are the title track, electric eye (which features some great guitar solo and riffs) and the anthemic you got another thing comin. OVERALL, I prefer other nmobhm gems like maiden's no of the beast or def leppard's pyromania, but this one is damn close. Ratings: 8/10

From: juan carlos Date: January 18, 2007 at 22:38
El gran disco de JUDAS, el mejor de todos en mi opinión. Temazo tras temazo, British Steel y Stained Class son clasicazos como no pero este es su mejor disco. Demas decir las clásicas, TODO el disco es HEAVY METAL A1, ROB HALFORD un verdadero METAL GOD. Cuanta nostalgia, que años, UP METAL 4EVER!!! 10/10

From: rockhardrock Date: August 26, 2010 at 5:27
true gem of this band. could also be my favourite album by priest.it's more melodic than british steel and has the best sound-typical 80s sound. my favs: you've got another thing comin', electric eye/hellion, devil's child, bloodstone and screaming for vengeance.

From: halfordhughes Date: June 2, 2011 at 13:44
great album!!!maybe the best 1980s album of priest....must have this.....highly recommended!!!

From: pie75 Date: June 20, 2012 at 1:36
yes sir! this is priest's finest hour from start to finnish is metal of the finest quality how great is is the hellion/electric eye,bloodstone,the title track and the anthem you've got another thing comin'

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 3, 2017 at 23:06
A big step for the band in here and the international stardom just around the corner for the guys,especially in the States..."The Hellion"(killer intro),"Electric Eye","Riding On The Wind","Screaming For Vengeance" & "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" are nowadays classics of the metal genre.85/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 27, 2022 at 0:44
It's hard for modern ears to hear this album and understand how heavy it was in its time. People who weren't there, me included, tend to imagine that metal was a lot more prevalent in the early '80's than it really was. That's partly because we've heard guys in prominent later bands talk about the NWOBHM and Anvil and Mercyful Fate and tape-trading and all this stuff, and we imagine that was the norm. Maybe for a minority of obsessives, and more power to those lucky bastards, but that wasn't most people's experience. So for Judas Priest to hit #4 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart was quite a feat back in '82, even if it was with what Martin Popoff likes to call "just a heavy Kiss song."

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 27, 2022 at 0:54
And, also as Popoff points out, half of this album consists of heavy Kiss songs, while the other half, including the likes of "Electric Eyee," "Riding On The Wind" and especially the title track, point the way to the future, even hinting at Painkiller, still some eight years off. It's funny that Bob Halligan was brought in to help write a "radio song," which didn't even end up being THE radio song. Halford is not wrong in his assername that Screaming For Vengeance is the natural successor to British Steel, rather than the lukewarm Point Of Entry, but for its beefier production. Both are stone-cold classics, even if they swap the grimness of early albums for more of a carefree feel to appeal to Americans. The worst song here is "Pleasure And Pain."

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 27, 2022 at 1:01
To ears raised on thrash metal and beyond, it sounds quaint, sure. But to people in 1982 whose idea of "hard rock" was the lightweight FM-RADIO fare of the day like Foreigner and Journey, this was pretty fuckin' heavy and state-of-the-art.
