Screaming For Vengeance Special 30th Anniversary Edition
by Judas Priest
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Sony Music UK
Priest cleaned up their sound for this 1982 breakthrough, and it paid off, with a No. 1 hit ("You've Got Another Thing Comin'") and worldwide status as heavy metal pacesetters. If anything, the cleaner production is a plus, and really, all bets are off with Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing's usual telepathic communication. "Another Thing Comin'" provides a nostalgic thrill, but folks super-psyched for this 30th Anniversary Edition (Live cuts from '82! A DVD of them at the US Festival!) come here for "Electric Eye" and anytime Rob Halford hits that note that only the one true metal god can hit.
