Usually considered a poor continuation of British Steel, Point Of Entry is in my eyes exactly the follow-up they needed and is by far better than British Steel. A classic Judas Priest record that's unfortunately often neglected by fans and viewed as a missed opportunity or a record that's only good for one thing and that's for when you're driving. As much as i agree that it's good to listen to it when you're going for a ride it's not true that's it's only use. This record stands on it's own two feet perfectly and can be listened to in any moment. Point Of Entry has so much energy and groove to it that it baffles me how people can dismiss it so easily. Track by track:Heading Out To The Highway - a classic Priest hit and really positive energetic song. - 10/10Don't Go - one of the best on the album. love how it goes from slow to upbeat. - 10/10Hot Rockin' - one of the heaviest and more heavy metal songs on the album. unskipable - 10/10Turning Circles - here we came to the first filler. uninteresting. - 2/10Desert Plains - slower, but really sets the mood and a great atmosphere on it. amazing. - 10/10Solar Angels - another slower song. a bit different. not as great as the others, but still awesome - 9/10You Say Yes - not sure where they wanted to go with this. just a filler in my opinion - 2/10All The Way - amazing riffs. another great adittion to the album. classic rocker - 10/10Troubleshooter - not necessarily a filler, but really it's nothing special you'd listen again. - 5/10On The Run - an awesome way to close the album. i like Rob's singing here. underrated. - 10/10Thunder Road - a bonus track, but still the best and heaviest one on the album. classic Priest - 10/10Favourite tracks:01. Thunder Road02. Heading Out To The Highway03. Don't Go04. Hot Rockin'05. All The Way
After a huge success in both critics and fans by British Steel, the hype was high for this album, but most fans ended dissapointed with this album. The formula for this 1981 album was to go for a more radio-friendly album. Some fans like this album, others just ignore its existente, something I think doesn't deserve. Yes, it didn't reached my expectations, but it doesn't completely suck.Track by track:1. Heading Out The Highway: A pretty good song and a good way start to this album: 10/102. Don't Go: It's a track that is simple but entertaining, but I just don't get too much on it: 7/103. Hot Rockin': it's pretty heavy compared to the rest of this album and has a nice solo: 10/104. Turning Circles: It feels a bit filler, but has a few save points: 5/105. Desert Plains: An amazing track, hands down the best song of this album, excellent vocals by Halford, a criminally underrated song: 10/106. Solar Angels: Another nice song, but doesn't impress me that much: 8/107. You Say Yes: It's a pretty energetic song, its lyrics are cheesy, but not bad: 9/108. All The Way: It's not that of a great song, it doesn't suck, but I didn't liked it: 5/109. Troubleshooter: The same as the previous track: 5/1010: The Run: Not a bad way to close this album, but it's not the best: 7/10Final Rating: 7.6/10: It's not bad, I liked it, they just went too mainstream.Top 5 Favorite Tracks:1.

Many Judas Priest fans were a bit perplexed the first time they cued up POINT OF ENTRY. While continuing the same basic formula as BRITISH STEEL, it wasn't quite as consistent this time around. Priest’s formula for POINT OF ENTRY was to compose shorter, catchier pop-metal songs that seemed more geared for radio airplay than anything they’d done prior. Although there were still several very strong tracks on this record, this album received a cooler response from older fans, which was made more evident by the diminished sales it garnered.The album begins with the palm muted metal riffing of “Heading Out To The Highway”, which is easily one of the strongest tracks. Throughout the album, Tipton & Downing’s playing is far more restrained, minimalist and geared towards the songs. The solo breaks they do take are far shorter than those on their earlier records. They seem more interested here in creating melodies and textures rather than showboating. Rob Halford is also in fine voice here, but also limits himself a bit more to serving the songs.“Don’t Go” is a slow and sparsely riffed pop-metal track that is almost a guilty pleasure. “Hot Rockin’” is a catchy, headbanger that rocks just hard enough to satisfy their older fans, while still vying for FM radio. “Turning Circles” has an appropriately cyclical melodic riff that is likable enough, but falls short of being a highlight. “Desert Plains” follows in a similar vibe, but possesses a more propulsive groove that is both melodic and powerful. “Solar Angels” begin with flanged electric guitars chugging away on a low E groove that sounds almost machine-like. With its majestic sustained guitar chords underneath Halford’s soaring vocals, this song is often one of the underappreciated highlights of the album.At this point in the album, their songwriting seems to run out of gas. The final four tracks – “You Say Yes”, “All The Way”, “Troubleshooter” and “On The Run”, are of obviously lesser quality than everything that preceded them. That’s not to say they are all awful songs, just decidedly less inspired and rarely (if ever) performed live.Still, POINT OF ENTRY succeeds more often than not and can still be considered a great record overall.
Easily one of Priest's worst albums. What's so strange about this is the albums book-ending Point of Entry in Priest's discography(British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance) are not only two of Priest's best albums, but also two of the best albums in the history of heavy metal, period. It really is very strange to me that such a sub-par album landed almost right in the middle of Judas Priests quality streak. Rocka Rolla may have been a confused debut, but the five albums between that album and this were all good-to-great. Additionally, the two albums after Point of Entry are both pretty damn good. I guess the fact that I'm talking about other albums while reviewing this one pretty much says it all. I'm sure I will listen to plenty of Judas Priest albums again before I die, but I doubt this will be one of them.Favorite Tracks: None
Not a metal album at all, but their is some great rock/pop rock tunes. Other than the pretty bad 'Turning Circles', every song is at least enjoyable.
Priest change often their Directions, this is their first more commercial Album, Great Songs, some Fillers. I would give a 7,0 out of 10!
