Just finished my first listen of this behemoth! And I must say, WOW! It certainly is different! I think Priest have set themselves the challenge of proving to the world that they are serious musicians and not just writers of catchy metal cheese. As a metal opera it seems pretty amazing, but don't come into it expecting your standard Priest anthems as it isn't that kind of album. Very ballsy release thats for sure! I think I have enjoyed the second disc more on first listen, but will give it more spins in the days ahead.
