Has There Been A Better 1,2 Punch Than SFV & DotF?

Post by Ryan81 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 9:55 am

I know there have been several threads regarding successful album streaks, etc. So here is another one. Is Judas Priest's Screaming For Vengeance and Defenders of the Faith the best two album streak (for lack of a better word) ever?

It's gotta be up there. Puppets & Justice might be close.

I missed the other thread, but I would say these two off the top of my head were more successful:

Journey
Escape -> Frontiers

Bon Jovi
Slippery -> New Jersey

I would go so far as to say Nevermore had five in a row

The Politics of Ecstasy
Dreaming Neon Black
Dead Heart in a Dead World
Enemies of Reality
This Godless Endeavor

The problem is EoR was the one stinker due to very bad initial production. The band's contract was up with Century Media and Century wanted them to re-sign. When they didn't initially, CM gave them peanuts for a recording budget (Kelly Gray was the producer) and the album sounded like shit. Once they re-signed with CM (they shouldn't have after the way they were treated) they were given some money to hire Andy Sneap to remix the album, making it a far better album. The songs were still killer they just sounded way better. But that still hurts the album.

Not hardly. Any album with Take These Chains and Pain and Pleasure doesn't belong on any greatest ever album list.
