  • Nostradamus

    I just bought the new Judas Priest CD Nostradamus (the book version)
    I got a free general admission ticket to the San Bernadino gig!! Not bad a $20 ticket and a 2CD ltd ed pack for $24.99 (Best Buy)
    What do you think of the CD??
    In general I like it, I'm disapointed that we have to wait more years for a proper Priest album, but in general it's good.
    Some of the lower register vocals are a bit shakey imo, but Rob really shines in other places. All the guitar work is outstanding (when there is guitar work). Some of the lyrics feel a little squeezed in too. I wonder what they will be able to play live - this is the only problem of doing a concept album, how will the likes of Nostradamus & Prophecy stand along Sentinell and Painkiller???
    I give it a thumbs up especially for the free ticket!!

        Listening to it for the second time at this very moment, so I can't say much so far, but:

        I think, Nostradamus is one of those albums that ... either you get it or you don't. At this moment, I honestly don't get it.

        Judas Priest should be about energy and never get boring, and this album, IMO lacks energy and makes me sleepy.

        Comparing this to Seventh son, which is the nearest Maiden has gotten to write a concept album, the difference is huge. 7th son has energy, power, is colourful, the lyrics are good.

        Nostradamus is often mid-paced, moody, the lyrics are sometimes weak... Rob's singing lacks edge(!!!)...

        I don't know... will keep listening to it. I really want to like this thing.

                        Comming from a huge priest fan....I cant listen to this album all the time... its just not a priest album,it sounds like alot of bad left overs from AOR BUT some songs are pretty good.

                            I dont really understand why everybody doesnt like it. I LOVE IT SO FAR! I'm midway through the 2nd disc, but man is this some awesome stuff! Lots of variety, catchy songs, good riffs, and incredible guitar solos. I also love that it's a dark album, with none of the happy upbeat songs that Priest would often play in the 80's. A more complete review of this album will come out once I finish it. I must say though that I was expecting it to be bad after all the bad reviews from people, but it has turned out to be quite the opposite. "Exiled" is freakin great!
