Horrendous mastering, but it still rocks

"First off, this DVD essentially combines the 1986 music video compilation "Fuel For Life", the 1987 concert video "priest...live!", adds the three videos made post-1986, and a very welcome handful of rare late-70's/early 80's television performances. Considering that these two VHS release would've set you back about $45 back in the day, this is a bona fide bargain.
The picture seems to be a straight transfer wihtout and real cleaning-up, but hey, it's better than my grainy VHS tapes now pushing 20 years old.
But here's the bad news - we've all gotten used to that little pause that occurs on DVD's when the laser switches layers on the disc. On virtually every DVD I've watched that has this pause, the mastering people are careful to place it in a section of the program where it will be virtually unnoticed (a scene transition, a scene with no dialogue or significant noise and/or little movement, etc.). For a concert film like this, you could certainly overlook a pause placed between two songs causing a brief silence in the crowd noise. But the moron in charge of mastering this disc placed the pause RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SONG. Right during "The Sentinal", the image freezes, the music stops, everything grinds to a HALT.
Talk about cheap, unprofessional lack of quality control. It really devalues the product, and suddenly the low sticker price is justified. I'm tempted to rate this thing 2 or 3 stars simply because of the lackluster video transfer and the appallingly poor mastering, but I can't. It's Priest. It rocks. 5 stars for the material, 1 stars for the presentation, which in my grading system gives a weighted average of 4 stars."
Another Good Dvd Package

"If you're a Judas Priest fan(which you must be if you're reading this), buying this dvd is pretty much a no-brainer. Even if you read negative reviews, you'll probably get it anyway to complete your collection. Is it good? You bet! Especially for the price. The videos are lots of fun to watch. Priest was a great band, but they really make themselves look silly with these videos. Rob Halford must think he's in a play or Broadway musical with the way he overacts constantly. Many reviewers have said, "how couldn't you tell he was gay?" Well, you'll see where they're coming from, especially with the Point Of Entry videos. Remember the Police Academy movies? Remember how they would always trick the police captain and Proctor into going to the Blue Oyster bar? In the video "Don't Go", you'll swear that Halford just stepped out of that place. These may sound like complaints, but it's all this stuff that makes these videos so fun to watch. My favorite being "Freewheel Burning" coz of the Pole Position game and the laser lights. And who could forget the exploding head in "Another Thing Comin'?" The concert gets mixed reviews coz it's from the Turbo tour. I know it's not the tour we would have all picked, but it's still enjoyable and makes the dvd even more worth the money. Basically what it comes down to is if you liked the Iron Maiden dvd and how it was set up, you'll most likely dig this."
An Obvious "Teaser" for the reunion.

"Judas Priest have finally come full circle. Getting rid of Rob Halford was their darkest hour, and they struggled to follow up Painkiller with any standout material. After a few missteps, Halford himself came back with a venegence, putting out two classic solo albums in the process.
Now on to the Dvd: its a very reasonably priced dvd full of treats. Its not complete but for a 2 hour 40 minute dvd it is definitely more than enough. It features the entire Priest Live video as well as most of the Halford era promo videos (some really funny stuff here, how could anyone not known he was gay!) and two live songs for bbc along with three mimed ones. Not the best thing since sliced bread, but its pretty awesome. Obviously it is timed to promote the reunion with Rob Halford, as there is no Ripper era material to be found on this release. Priest Live: A highly entertaining if a little dated (smirk) concert video of Priest at their best, live. Versions of Hell Bent For Leather, Breaking the Law, and The Sentinel actually surpass their studio counterparts. It has a lot of material from the widely controversial (at least at the time) album Turbo, and this may be a turn off to some potential buyers of the dvd (not me because I happen to like the album). The Videos: Most of the Halford era videos in all their full glory, including one I've waited to see for a long time, Hot Rockin! (hilarious work out scene with obvious innuendos in the video). Touch of Evil is also a big highlight as well as the hilariously over budget Locked In.The Extras: A few lip synced songs for the tele, but the real treat is the "hippie era" Priest rockin out two songs live, Dreamer Deceiver/Deceiver and Rocka Rolla! Sound: Thats where one star is taken off. The videos and Priest live sound fine, but there is a decibel drop noticable with the extra tv footage. Part of it may be me using the (not so good) Ps2 dvd player (too cheap to buy a real one) but it is noticable. Overall: Buy this dvd, you wont be dissapointed."
