Regardless of the original album's use of unimaginative filler, and irrespective of debates about which Priest album truly reigns supreme, there's every reason to leap at this 30th anniversary edition of Screaming for Vengeance.
The Chosen Few makes for a nice treat, but hardly an essential one. This is just another in an increasingly long line of Judas Priest compilations, and there are more comprehensive and interesting Priest collections available.
Put as simply -- and starkly -- as possible, many beautiful babies were thrown out with the bath water by hidebound critics who were content to sniffingly dismiss the more ambitious (pretentious!) works that certain bands were putting out as a matter of course in the early-to-mid-‘70s.
Over the course of 30 years, the mighty Priest has had an eventful journey as metal gods, with more than their share of peaks and valleys: they went from being regarded as metal progenitors, to a worldwide commercial success, scorned for being shameless sellouts, accused by witless parents of convincing kids to kill themselves, and coming out from it all as triumphant heroes.
