Editorial Reviews

The core of vocalist Rob Halford, lead guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing and bass guitarist Ian Hill worked with several drummers in the earlier years, with longtime current member Scott Travis rounding out the definitive lineup due to his incredible power and versatility. JUDAS PRIEST knows that what matters is the music, and its ability to blend unforgettable melodies with atomic-bomb power has never been equalled.

Judas Priest are quite possibly, without a hint of over-dramatization, one of the three most influential bands in the history of heavy metal, the other two being Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. As such they are certainly worthy of more than one career retrospective album, and there are several from which to choose. When I first ran across this particular CD, The Essential Judas Priest, last year, I was fairly impressed by the song selection from each album. Many times these hits compilations wind up being horrible messes, with countless bad selections and many times including the much-dreaded (at least in my mind) live tracks. I hate live tracks as part of greatest hits compilations or career-spanning retrospectives, just because if I wanted a live track, I would've bought a live album. I much prefer the original studio versions of songs. Good news: no live tracks present. The Sony people did a pretty good job here, and I understand there was significant input from the band members, which is never a bad thing. Let's get started!

Rocka Rolla: As usual not represented. The band do not care for this album and I can't say I blame them, as I really don't care for it either. This isn't the album you are looking for. Move along.

Sad Wings of Destiny: Very good album, not my favorite. The two best songs from the record are here, Victim of Changes and The Ripper. Tad surprised at the omission of Dreamer Deceiver and Deceiver, but I guess with only 34 possible slots, some good songs are going to get left off.

Sin After Sin: Again, good album but not a personal fave. Diamonds and Rust and Sinner are among the best known from here. Dissident Aggressor is a notable exclusion, but again it's a numbers thing.

If you're already a big Judas Priest fan, then you probably own their other greatest hits albums they've put out and the box set, so it's not really "essential" that you own this, but hey, it beats switching out 20 different cds constantly to hear all of these songs.

CD 1 opens up with Judas Rising off of their latest (although sadly, not their best work) album "Angel of Retribution", and CD 2 ends with another cut from the album, Revolution, with 30 years of awesome music sandwiched in between (although I wonder why it's not in chronological order?).

As I said before, chances are if you're a Judas Priest fan, you probably own most of their CDs already or even the other greatest hits, but if you're just hearing them for the first time, this is an awesome place to start, but check out all of their albums because there's so much music they've done that cant all be included on here that is definitely some of their best.

Judas Priest one of the most influential and powerful sounding metal bands of all time here is a run down on their most legitimate compilations.

2 Disc Compilations: Metal Works 73-93 or The Essential Judas Priest? This will come down to personal preference i prefer Metal Works for it compiles most of the best from judas priests prime, essentials includes more singles and has the green manilishi one of my favorites but the chioce is your which has more songs you want.

1 Disc Compilation: Their is only one. Best of: Living After Midnight however their is 2 versions of it. The 16 track version is an attempt to put the best of judas priest on one disc and is a great listen the 18 track version is an attempt to fit as many singles as possible on one disc. The 16 track has live versions (some of judas priests best songs were only great when live) and the 18 track eliminates the live tracks for a few singles that i personally thought were mostly weak tracks but the choice is yours if you must have a 1 cd compilation.

Box Set: Only other compilation i would consider is the 5 disc box set metalogy which has 4 cds of songs and 1 concert dvd but the other 3 compilations i mentioned are better for casual fans.

Conclusion the 2 disc sets really give you alot of great songs and get a good overview of the band but if you dont have time to listen to 2 disc packed full of priest the 1 disc compilation is very good listen to. Could only reccomend the box set for someone who doesnt want buy all priests albums and still wants to hear alot of their music or fanatics who want the few rare songs.

Judas Priest's compilation album entitled The Essential Judas Priest (first released as a 2-CD retrospective covering the classic heavy metal band's 1976-2005 career in 2006) was re-released in 2008 as an economically priced 3-CD set.
Judas Priest weren't just called the Metal Gods for nothing. For decades, the core of Judas Priest which are guitarists KK Downing and Glenn Tipton, bass player Ian Hill and lead singer Rob Halford and the cast of drummers have successfully defended the faith of metal!
The Essential Judas Priest contains forty-one (count them 41) tracks overall. Released by Columbia Records, the set covers the band's Rob Halford years from 1976-1990 and reunion in 2005. It covers tracks from twelve of the band's fifteen studio albums released over the years.
The band's 1974 debut Rocka Rolla was not covered though some would have wanted its title cut here.
The band's sophomore effort 1976's Sad Wings of Destiny is represented by the classics and finally properly remastered versions of the studio recording of "Victim Of Changes" and "The Ripper". Whilst the album, like its predecessor was on Ovation Records (a long out of print label here in the US), didn't sell well upon release it did find the band's sound that it would adopt for the rest of its career.
The band's third album (their first for CBS/Sony affiliate Columbia) 1977's Sin After Sin (which saw the addition of powehouse drummer Simon Phillips (who would work with Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford on his Smallcreep's Day album and with Pete Townshend and The Who and later Toto in his career)) is represented by "Diamonds And Rust", "Sinner" and "Diisident Aggressor" (which was left off of the 2-CD edition for time constraints but is on disc 3).
