First off, this DVD essentially combines the 1986 music video compilation "Fuel For Life", the 1987 concert video "priest...live!", adds the three videos made post-1986, and a very welcome handful of rare late-70's/early 80's television performances. Considering that these two VHS release would've set you back about $45 back in the day, this is a bona fide bargain.

The picture seems to be a straight transfer wihtout and real cleaning-up, but hey, it's better than my grainy VHS tapes now pushing 20 years old.

But here's the bad news - we've all gotten used to that little pause that occurs on DVD's when the laser switches layers on the disc. On virtually every DVD I've watched that has this pause, the mastering people are careful to place it in a section of the program where it will be virtually unnoticed (a scene transition, a scene with no dialogue or significant noise and/or little movement, etc.). For a concert film like this, you could certainly overlook a pause placed between two songs causing a brief silence in the crowd noise. But the moron in charge of mastering this disc placed the pause RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SONG. Right during "The Sentinal", the image freezes, the music stops, everything grinds to a HALT.

Talk about cheap, unprofessional lack of quality control. It really devalues the product, and suddenly the low sticker price is justified. I'm tempted to rate this thing 2 or 3 stars simply because of the lackluster video transfer and the appallingly poor mastering, but I can't. It's Priest. It rocks. 5 stars for the material, 1 stars for the presentation, which in my grading system gives a weighted average of 4 stars.

Electric Eye(2004). A DVD compilation of every Halford-era MTV video 1980-1990, the entire Fuel For Life '86 concert video, and a collection of various 70's BBC TV performances of the band.

Judas Priest was my first real induction to heavy metal music, and while anyone will argue which band is in fact the greatest, for me I've always come back to Priest first and foremost before anyone else. Iron Maiden became very famous for delivering plenty of epic harmonious classic metal songs of the NWOBHM style, while Metallica, on the other hand, were able to pull off thrash metal correctly on their first several albums; both bands taking on a sophisticated approach to metal both lyrically and musically. So most often, I've found that metal fans who prefer their music to be progressive to an extent will prefer these bands over Priest anyday.

However, many a metal fan fail to realize that playing technical and having complex songwriting isn't the only way to tackle metal. Priest falls on the other side of the spectrum where power, feeling, and hooks are emphasized over sophistication. And so here is why I consider Judas Priest to be my favorite as far as metal music goes: Over the years I've gradually built up a much broader taste in music ranging from pop to metal to industrial, to classic, to progressive, to electronic, to whatever alse... and yet no matter what I'm into, JP never gets old to me. Sure, they do not always hit the high mark, and their lyrics and songs tend to come off as corny and comical to some, but whenever JP is firing on all cylinders, they get into this special "zone" where not even Maiden or Metallica can really touch them (they still are some of my favorite metal bands though!).

If you're a Judas Priest fan(which you must be if you're reading this), buying this dvd is pretty much a no-brainer. Even if you read negative reviews, you'll probably get it anyway to complete your collection. Is it good? You bet! Especially for the price. The videos are lots of fun to watch. Priest was a great band, but they really make themselves look silly with these videos. Rob Halford must think he's in a play or Broadway musical with the way he overacts constantly. Many reviewers have said, "how couldn't you tell he was gay?" Well, you'll see where they're coming from, especially with the Point Of Entry videos. Remember the Police Academy movies? Remember how they would always trick the police captain and Proctor into going to the Blue Oyster bar? In the video "Don't Go", you'll swear that Halford just stepped out of that place. These may sound like complaints, but it's all this stuff that makes these videos so fun to watch. My favorite being "Freewheel Burning" coz of the Pole Position game and the laser lights. And who could forget the exploding head in "Another Thing Comin'?" The concert gets mixed reviews coz it's from the Turbo tour. I know it's not the tour we would have all picked, but it's still enjoyable and makes the dvd even more worth the money. Basically what it comes down to is if you liked the Iron Maiden dvd and how it was set up, you'll most likely dig this.
