5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good,
I assumed that this would be a fairly average but with some good heavy licks as it was Glenn Tipton from Judas Priest. What I found was traditional ultra heavy rock with fresh feel and very well put together. Baptism doesn’t feel like a side project – it very much sounds like a polished effort and a “”real”” band. Now I wonder how much of the Judas Priest sound comes from GT – this album certainly stands up well.


5.0 out of 5 stars Baptizm of Fire
The guitar work is absolutely stunning and the drum work from Cozy Powell on a couple of the tracks leaves you in no doubt why he is still very much missed. Hopefully the new album with Cozy playing on all of the tracks will be even better. Well worth listening to for the sheer technical excellence. Definitely one for the metal fan who prefers the more exclusive end of the market.


5.0 out of 5 stars Some surprises in Judas Priest guitarist solo effort.,
Glenn Tipton is a fantastic lead guitarist with Judas Priest, not a singer, but this solo album has some very good songs on it. There are some surprises included, mainly that our Glenn is into an even heavier brand of metal than Judas Priest is best known for. I’m not keen on his version of “”Paint it Black”” (one of my favourite Rolling Stones’ songs and only Mick Jagger can do it justice in my opinion), but Glenn original material is well worth a listen.
