Point of Entry Reviews

Reviewer :    (85/100)
Date : 
Judas Priest의 여덟 번째 정규작 "Point of Entry" 앨범으로 북미 반은 다른 커버 아트를 사용하였다. "British Steel"의 대대적인 성공 이후 나온 앨범인 만큼 집중적인 스포트라이트를 받았고 나름대로 성공한 작품이지만, 개인적으로는 그에 상응할 만한 음악적 내용물을 담고 있지는 않다고 생각한다. 전작에 비해 파괴력이 한층 떨어졌으며 미국 시장을 의식한 듯한 리듬을 살린 곡들이 보이고 있다. 싱글 히트곡인 "Heading Out to the Highway", 앨범에서 가장 메틀릭한 "Hot Rockin'", 이질적인 분위기를 풍기는 "Desert Plains" 등을 담고 있다. 주다스 프리스트와 Tom Allom이 공동으로 프로듀싱하였다.

British Steel에 Living After Midnight이 있다면 이 앨범에는 Heading Out To The Highway가 있다.
