I get the impression that the younger generation of Priest fans don't really care that much for their pre-1980 albums.

Could be wrong though.

Sad Wings, Sin and Stained are all toppin though.

An argument could obviously be made that Painkiller was their prime. I wouldn't object to that, but I would perhaps reply by saying their main prime period was 1976-1984 and that Painkiller was an anomaly in their discography after that period, but it's just as good, if not better, than their previous heights.

I know some Priest fans don't like hearing the young bucks praise the hell out of Painkiller while ignoring Sad wings. It doesn't bother me at all. It's just a taste thing, personal preference etc. I'm happy that Painkiller now has the reputation it has because i felt it was a little underrated during the first half of the 90's

I could see that newer fans wouldn't have any time for pre 1980 Priest. You can show some Metul kid Painkiller and they'll be like 'Cool', but I wouldn't 'expect' them to also like 'Island of Domination'...

Priest are a weird one, in that there 'seemingly' most iconic album doesn't come from their classic period. It's like if 'Bastards' was Motorhead's big one... very peculiar really.

Why was the Christmas thread unlocked and then locked again??? Completely without justification.
