      Disadvantages

      Judas Priest's first live album (1979).

      One of the classic heavy metal live albums, 'Unleashed in the East' is such an effective summary of Judas Priest's seventies career that it's hard to even care that much of it was probably polished up in the studio. With nine solid tracks culled from the band's second to fifth albums (the first album is a bit of an oddball in the discography), this still displays the band's early blues-rock influence and places their dark, epic style next to the more simplistic style developed on the then-recent 'Killing Machine,' an album that receives greater representation on later re-releases of the live album.

      The sound quality here is perfect, bringing out the full power of the instruments, and it's primarily for this reason that I would recommend this over the earlier studio albums themselves for newcomers, or those approaching the band from their later releases. The sound is as heavy as the band intended to sound before the inevitable weakening of album production, making for an authentic live sound and atmosphere, and all songs from the speedy opener 'Exciter' to sinister finale 'Tyrant' have never sounded more energetic.

      1. Exciter
      2. Running Wild
      3. Sinner
      4. The Ripper
      5. The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown) (Fleetwood Mac cover)
      6. Diamonds and Rust (Joan Baez cover)
      7. Victim of Changes
      8. Genocide
      9. Tyrant
