Judas Priest – British Steel
Today is the 11th anniversary for the wedding of my lovely wife and I.
She’s a brave lady, lemme tell you.
Now, according to Hallmark and the rest who want you to buy shit every year, the 11th anniversary is steel. Honestly, I don’t know who came up with this stuff, I mean, it could just as easily be sod. However, this year (so say the people who make this shit up), it’s steel.
So, of course, I had to write-up this record for today. Right? RIGHT.
You know, usually, I write up an album song by song, throwing in my thoughts, witty comments, and things I noticed as I went along in my listening. Well, as soon as Rapid Fire hit, all of that went right out the fucking window. I turned it up, then turned it up louder again, and away we went.
You know this album. Hell, you probably own this album. I don’t need to tell you a damn thing about this album. Let me just tell you that I am with you. It is awesome. The big hits (Breaking The Law and Living After Midnight) stand equally beside all the rest. You knew that. This entire thing’s huge.
Here is all that needs to be said about it:
Rapid Fire / Metal Gods / Breaking The Law / Grinder / United / You Don’t Have To Be Old To Be Wise / Living After Midnight / The Rage / Steeler
Mine is the bonus track remaster, so it has:
Red, White & Blue / Grinder (live)
Happy anniversary INDEED! \m/ \m/
