WHY do midwits insist that Side 1 begins with Victim of Changes? The album is CLEARLY meant to start with Prelude. Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous WHY do midwits insist that Side 1 begins with Victim of Changes? The album is CLEARLY meant to start with Prelude.
>WHY do midwits insist that Side 1 begins with Victim of Changes
Because the first half of the album sucks other than Tyrant. The album flows better starting with Victim of Changes and taking out the CD after Tyrant.
Genocide and Island of Domination are classics...get a hearing test. You're listening to the wrong side first.
Epitaph is one of the best song on the album
Am I the only one that thinks this is top3 priest album?
Yes. But we're not discussing this album's merits. We are correcting the idiots who play Side 2 before Side 1 - madness, courtesy of bad labelling at Gull Records in 1976!
Where did you read that it is misprinted?
Not really, for a lot of diehards who prefer the 70s the debate of best Priest comes down to Sad Wings vs. Stained Class most commonly. Sin After Sin is the one that gets overlooked.
>proto goth rock
Goth =/= anything dark, goth rock comes out of post punk music, Priest comes out of Sabbath and Zeppelin, nothing in common musically.
No, but Priest has some serious Cheap Trick syndrome going on. All their studio work and songwriting is fantastic, absolutely on point. However, their true power only really comes through live. It's hard to go back after you hear the definitive (live) versions of any of their songs.
Unleashed in the East one of the GOAT live albums not just in metal but in rock. Though I will say some songs I prefer the studio version, like Tyrant, the live version is more high energy but the studio version has that more slightly morose undertone with the backing vocals that kind of makes it for me
Fucking THIS. It's why I bought the Deluxe Edition CDs they released a few years ago with a bonus live recording. Vengeance comes with a really good live DVD that I watch all the time. Vid related.
It's their best IMO. Most cohesive front to back. Sin after Sin and Stained Class are also great, then Painkiller after that then Screaming for Vengeance. I don't really like 80s priest as much honestly.
no lots of people consider it to be their best
early Priest when they were a proto Goth rock band instead of later on when they started courting the Ted Nugent "real motherfucking rock and roll" crowd to better appeal to Americans
Victim of Changes is the perfect earwasher you can have after starting to listen to Priest with Rocka Rolla, so yeah it's the best way to to start the A side
Sounds better with Victim of changes. Prelude is the bridge between the two sides, and sets the mood for the second half.
>Victim of changes after Island of Domination
On a side note, who else love Sin After Sin? for me prime old judas.
>Let Us Prey/Call for the Priest
>Here Come the Tears
Sin After Sin is great, if lesser discussed.
it's clearly a concept album about an incel murderer who enters the astral plane and becomes an intergalactic emperor
We're talking fucking PRIEST dude. They rocked so hard they blew this guys head off.
Yeah and the topic is the order of the tracks on one of their albums. If you want to make generalized comments about how "hard they rock" you can make another thread.
Yeah but you're dealing with a topic where most people don't know what you're talking about because most people only heard the album in mp3, maybe CD if they're older, so they've only ever heard it as the tracks actually are and never flipped over a record in their life
So? You don't have to post in every thread you see.
So? You'd have a point if you were replying to people talking about a totally different band. One of those were replying to a post actually about the topic.
