Coming off the success of 1980's British Steel, Judas Priest released Point of Entry, which marked yet another stylistic change for the band. The songs were shorter, the tempoes simpler, and with a more mainstream feel overall. Indeed, this albums has more of a '70s rock feel than any of their '70s albums. It sounds almost as if it's an evolutionary dead end, a brief foray into mainstream rock before the metallic assault of Screaming for Vengeance. However, even as a dead end, it makes a killer album. The songs are consistently good, with the expected screams from Rob and the dualing Glenn/K.K. solos, and for once in the Dave Holland era, some excellent rythem playing. Rob's lyrics, often silly to near the point of self-parody on later albums, are effective and well-written here. Songs like Desert Plains, already instrumentally great, are pushed over the limit with some great lyrics to accompany them.

With the exception of "Solar Angels", this album is more appropriately described as a hard rock record (contrasted with their preceding and succeeding records, 'British Steel' and 'Screaming for Vengeance'.
That said, "Heading Out to the Highway" and "Desert Plains" are indispensible Judas Priest classics.

Judas Priest - Don't Go

This album is basic stripped down hard rock. One of my favourite metal bands.
