    Great list James! Allthough it’s was a hard one to compile really, right?! Most people think that the best of the beast is in the eighties… I’d say 2 miutes to midnight, wasted years and something form Seventh son like, say, Moonchild or the evil that men do can’t be left out!! 🙂 Damn the whole “somewhere in time” album should be in it!! hahahahaha 😀 Oh and also reckless and night crawler should be mandatory for this kind of list!!! But again… It’s impossible to choose… but Ok let’s just say: if anyone is new to these bands please consider these I mentioned above as bonus tracks at least 😉

    I’ve been waiting for Priest Vs. Maiden! Decent list, would have preferred more from Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    I love the entire Nostradamus album from Judas Priest. To me, it’s a masterpiece, it’s in my top 5 favorite albums for sure! Great playlist by the way.

    I’ve seen Maiden so many times over the years (just saw them again last week) that I now gravitate towards the songs I never see them play. Some I’d have included on your list: Purgatory, Flash of the Blade, Caught Somewhere In Time, Still Life, Montsegur, Coming Home, For the Greater Good of God, and From Here to Eternity.
