Unleashed in the East [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Judas Priest's first official live recording has always been met with equal amounts of acclaim and controversy: acclaim from those who consider it an excellent summation of the metal legend's 1970s output, and controversy from the critics and industry insiders who criticized what they believed to be a heavily overdubbed and studio-enhanced performance, mockingly naming it Unleashed in the Studio at times. Before delving deeper into this issue, let it be said that except for a few unfortunate omissions "Hell Bent for Leather," "Better by You, Better Than Me" the track listing here is quite impressive.

Judas Priest's first official live recording has always been met with equal amounts of acclaim and controversy: acclaim from those who consider it an excellent summation of the metal legend's 1970s output, and controversy from the critics and industry insiders who criticized what they believed to be a heavily overdubbed and studio-enhanced performance, mockingly naming it Unleashed in the Studio at times. Before delving deeper into this issue, let it be said that except for a few unfortunate omissions "Hell Bent for Leather," "Better by You, Better Than Me" the track listing here is quite impressive. Along with powerful versions of such storming anthems as "Exciter" and "Running Wild," the band delivers the definitive version of the prog metallic "Sinner," and competent versions of their popular covers tunes, "Diamonds and Rust" and "The Green Manalishi With the Two-Pronged Crown." Interestingly, most of the tracks from the classic Sad Wings of Destiny fall short of their mark, however, perhaps because they forfeit heaviness at the expense of speed. As for the "live" dilemma, in the late '90s estranged singer Rob Halford would claim in interviews that, while the band's playing was indeed recorded entirely live, his vocals had been ruined in the original mix, forcing him to re-record them in one take in a concert-like setting. If this was the case, it would hardly be the first or most severe case of studio interference on a live recording, and fans seeking a concise, nearly flawless collection of Priest's 1970s hits will not be disappointed. [The 2001 reissue offers four previously unreleased live tracks: "Rock Forever," "Delivering the Goods," "Hell Bent for Leather," and "Starbreaker."]

    Awsome

    I used to think Judas Priest was average,un-dynamic, pop rock/metal, (like Kiss,Aereosmith,AC/DC,Whitsnake,Great White ect.) ..then I heard ''Unleashed in the East''.A friend of mine had the song '' Green Manilishi'' Blasting on his stereo, it was the part near the end where Rob Holford is singing harmony with the guitar, ''Who's this?'' ..''Judas Priest''..Then I heard ''Diamonds & Rust'' ..Impressive. Then ''Victim of Changes''-It was obvious to me that Rob Halford was able to express some pretty deep feelings about things not going his way. This was honest music, and VERY dynamic. The drumming is perfect,Les Binks makes full use of his huge drumset using high toms, double bass drums,china cymbals ect. some of the guitar playing sounds just like Kerry King (Slayer)..It is shocking that ''Unleashed in the East'' was released in 1979, it has such a fresh contemporary sound.One can really see how this recording is a big influence on bands like Slayer,Metallica,&Iron Maiden. Recommended for anyone who likes good music.

    Unleashed in the East [Bonus Tracks]

    I used to think Judas Priest was just another undynamic,radio friendly, generic rock/metal band ( Like Kiss, AC/DC, Aereosmith, Whitesnake, Great White Ect. )Until one day my friend had ''Green Manilishi'' Blasting on his stereo-(it was the vocal harmony part near the end) Then I heard ''Victims of changes'' I was in Awe. Rob Halford really has some deep feelings of things not going as he wanted them to!! ''Diamonds and Rust'' has some introspective lyrics and great melodies ('' we both know what memories bring, they bring diamonds and rust!'' )Awsome drumming, high toms, double bass, china cymbals ect. Recommended for any lover of good music
