Blabbermouth.net reports: In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford had the following to say on the reception:

"I think our reaction is one of basically, if you're a hardcore PRIEST fan, and you've been waiting and waiting and waiting for this moment to happen — waiting for a concept release — you're gonna give it the time that it needs," he said. "Much like if you're a basketball fan, you watch four quarters — you don't leave at halftime. Or if you're watching a great movie, you don't walk out three-quarters of the way through. And that's what it's about: It's a great musical adventure that's telling a story. And we have no worries or fears or concerns about it, because we believe so strongly in the music and the way that it really draws you in and captures your mind and imagination."

He also had a go at playing Nostradamus himself, predicting: "I do predict that 'Nostradamus' is going to be embraced. I can see it being performed by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas. I also think I can see a little bit of a Grammy in there."

The album is good but there are at least 8 tracks that you can cut out on your ipod (the 2 minute tracks) i found the remaining full 14 tracks better to listen to overall this album does rock.

The album was great. But I really wish they had made Shadows in the Flame longer. It had so much potential for being a beautiful song, but it ended way to fast.

I agree. Shadows in the Flame is a classic Priest example. For me, I can't get "Alone" out of my head. This album is epic.
