Probably my favorite 70's Priest album, maybe because in parts it reminds me of Rush's Caress of Steel. The energetic fun heavy metal is at its most energetic and fun with the likes of Starbreaker and Dissident Aggressor, and the summer introspection anthem Last Rose of Summer is the Priest equivalent of Rush's Lakeside Park with its laidback rock perfection. Raw Deal is pure swagger in the vein of their later Killing Machine album. Their heavy metal version of Diamonds and Rust is beautiful and one of the best cover songs out there so much that more people know it as a Priest song than a Joan Baez one, and Here Comes the Tears is intensely and emotionally powerful with one of Halford's absolute finest and touching vocal performances.

This is probably my third favorite overall, with Screaming for Vengeance being number one followed by Point of Entry. It's hard though, as I love everything Priest did in the 70's and 80's.

I think Raw Deal has become my most listened-to Judas Priest track. I bought this album on cassette in 1983, my second Priest album after Screaming for Vengeance, and it remains one of my two favourites.
