Not sure why everyone creams over Monotheist so much. That song in question is good but as a whole it doesn't really hold up. The Triptykon album was what Monotheist should have been.

A change of pace, most definitely, but not a comeback. Ram It Down came out in 88, Painkiller came out in 90. They weren't coming back from anything.

Angel of Retribution is the Priest comeback album.

The thing is not only was Turbo perceived as a sellout, it was released at a time when not only Priest was getting up there in age, but thrash was peaking in just starting to permeate the mainstream. While I wasn't there, the consensus seemed to be that Priest was going to be another victim of thrash's replacing of the old guard and tossing them by the wayside. Ram It Down was a good album IMO, but it just wasn't strong enough to get their spot back (Johnny B. Goode as the single and the song for a box office bomb didn't help). Painkiller, however did exactly that. That's why it was a comeback. Of course than Rob had to fuck it all up by crashing his motorcycle on stage.

You need to give Obscured another listen, because that song is fantastically dark.

Anyway, gotta agree with Monotheist here. I can't really think of an album that fits the bill better.

Painkiller was absolutely a creative comeback. I actually like Ram It Down and Turbo a lot, but they were definitely a few rungs below the early 80s stuff and a huge step down from the 70s albums. Hell, I'd argue that Painkiller was Priest's most artistically significant album since Stained Class. As awesome and amazing as those albums from Hell Bent for Leather onwards are, they really did see them trying to pander to a commercial audience.

Angel of Retribution was their return to being a significant force in the metal world, but it really was kind of Priest on autopilot. For me anyway, Judas Rising is the only song from that album that's really stood the test of time.

Not even Hellrider? That's still one of my favorite Priest tunes.

I like Hellrider, Deal With the Devil and Demonizer, but Judas Rising is the only song from AoR that I feel should have a permanent slot in a Priest setlist. You're totally entitled to your own opinion though, so if Hellrider is a favorite for you, right on! That's what I love about Priest, everyone has their own era and albums that they connect with.

I like a number of songs on the album but Judas Rising is the only one that screams classic to me. I absolutely love Worth Fighting For though.

The only track i didn't like on Angel of Retribution was the last track. Everything else was badass.
