Halford's Vocals Dominate

""You're in for a surprise, you're in for a SHOCKEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!" The octave that Halford hits on "The Ripper" has me questioning whether he is man or beast. Unleashed in the East is the place to start and end as far as Judas Priest live albums go. The track listing reads as a greatest hits album (Sinner, Green Manalishi, Exciter, Victim of Changes, etc). Halford's vocals are front and center throughout. KK and Glen are in top form trading off deadly licks while Ian holds down the groove. I've heard some people claim that there was excessive overdubbing on this album especially with Rob's vocals, but I say who cares? This is one cd that remains on heavy rotation in my collection. An absolute must own classic. Highest Recommendation."
