I simple loved it....it was refreshingly different and tuneful. ONe of the attributes I love about JPmusic is their clarity in sound and lyrics.

|I remember this vividly.|
I knew Priest were pretty good and finished with a new album by the early Spring of '86. I used to listen to "Finger's Metal Shop" RELIGIOUSLY for any news, updates, or...possibly, the unveiling of a new track by any band I was interested in. Finally, one Sunday night (about a week before "Turbo" was released), Fingers played "Locked In." Long before then, I'd acquired my own copies of "Sin After Sin," "Stained Class," "Unleashed In The East," "Point of Entry," "Screaming For Vengeance," and "Defenders of the Faith." So, I knew how diverse and interesting a band like Priest could be.
Upon hearing "Locked In" for the first time, I liked it, and in a way I didn't. It wasn't that I found it 'pop-ish,' necessarily, but I think the general idea (lyrically) was something I felt had been sung about to death. Usually, whenever Priest touched upon the idea of 'love' or 'lust' in any of their songs, it was dealt with in more classy, or more lascivious ways ( "Fever" and "Burnin' Up" respectively, come to mind). Musically however, the song had a good vibe, and I thought Glenn's solo takes (interspersed with KK's) were very tasty.
Well...the following week, I took my paycheck...cashed it, and went right to a music store to buy both "Turbo" and Ozzy's "The Ultimate Sin." Naturally, I listened to "Turbo" first. I felt Priest's use of the guitar synth effects were very cool...very innovative. "Turbo Lover" actually blew me away. I loved the intro...the build-up...and even though I felt the lyrics were (again) less than poetic, Rob's delivery was perfection personified. I remember after hearing Rob singing "...and then in sheer abandonment...we SHATTER, AAANND EXPLOOODE!!!" I'd let out a rather exultant, "YEH!!!" I still felt the chorus was a bit goofy...but then, I thought back to the same thoughts I had about the chorus to "You Say Yes," and I just chalked it all up to it being part and parcel of the Priest experience.
Upon hearing "Locked In" again, I was already familiar with it, and found it more enjoyable. And as the rest of the album played on, I saw Priest's attempt to broaden their horizons (as well as the horizons of us...their fans) as something of a triumph. It was at that point I learned that these British gents were not the least bit intimidated or afraid of taking chances and taking risks with the music they'd create, and I respected the absolute shit out of that.
On a related note, but more singularized..."Reckless" made me want to climb into a Harrier Jet and just start flying the sumbitch!!! Whatta track! Glenn's solo in that one is still one of my favorites of his.
