What does everyone think of these two albums?

I agree...
[You Don't Know What It's Like!] Sunday, July 17, 2011 11:58:47 AM 
And in my opinion, & I would suggest the band's also, POE has the stronger songs - "Heading Out To The Highway", "Hot Rockin'", "Desert Plains" & "Solar Angels" - all of which have been included in various sets since the album came out, where as all of TURBO's with the exception of the classic title track have been long since dropped.

Sure, there is an argument to be made for "Out In the Cold" & "Reckless", but I fear the latter will never see the light of day live as Rob can no longer sing that high.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by parky-priest from Thursday, March 10, 2011 2:21:25 PM)

all Priest recordings are classic
[soccer star] Sunday, July 17, 2011 5:30:04 AM 
I think Desert Plains and Out In The Cold should have been included in the the latest Priest set list..
[parky-priest] Thursday, March 10, 2011 2:21:25 PM 
In my opinion Turbo has some strong songs on it. I think Reckless is an excellent song as is Out in the Cold, Hot for Love and Locked In (The guitar solos on these songs are superb!). Wild Nights.... is a great feelgood factor song whilst Rock you all around the world starts off promising but degenerates quickly. Yes, the Album lacks heavyness but it would be very interesting to hear Reckless on the forthcoming Epitaph tour. The rest of the Album in my opinion is weaker.

Agree they were good in there time people ,dont realize bands have to go with the flow to stay in the times. Like Nostrdomaus,it got them on prime time T.V.. Its hard to change one minded people Like Ripper Owens he dont get his due he had some good tunes its hard to follow a legend, Halford left ,he was thrown into the fire And some Tracks like BuLLLLet train,One on one, Feed on me to name a few really Rock! Listen to Rapid Fire on live 98 Halford never did it that good ever!

HAAAAAAAAA!!!!! While it is public knowledge that I actually like "Don't Go," that is just too damn funny.

Almost matches the level of pure disgust I have always felt for Stryper. Almost...

Just because you've listened to them four times in the past two weeks doesn't mean you know what your talking about. Parental Guidance is utterly stupid especially coming from a bunch of guys in their mid to late 30s, as Priest were at the time. Also I wouldn't say Don't Go was one of Point Of Entry's "moments". Unless of course at that moment you were hit with an instance of projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea at the same time whilst listening to it.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by NupeTheJawbreaker from Wednesday, March 09, 2011 4:33:21 PM)

[Nupe The Ripper] Wednesday, March 09, 2011 4:33:21 PM 
Neither of them are crap. I have both of these on CD and vinyl and have listened to them about three to four times during the past two weeks (just like every other Priest album I own), so I know what I'm talking about.

PoE has it's moments with Heading Out to the Highway, Hot Rockin', Don't Go and Desert Plains, although it does also have not-so-good tracks like You Say Yes and Turning Circles. The album is much lighter than most other Priest albums but that's why I love the band; they've got so much variety, and this album in particular is for the feel-good moments.

I have more mixed feelings about Turbo. My other musical passion along with metal & rock is 80s pop (a weird combination, I know). So at the first glance, a combination of two of my favorite styles doesn't sound bad. I've always liked Turbo Lover - it was one of the songs that hooked me with the band. Out in the Cold is one of the best power ballads I've heard (I have a soft spot to power ballads, to be honest) and Reckless is a great hard rocker - although a bit out of it's place among the other, more synth-driven tracks. Again, there's some feel-good songs like Locked In, Parental Guidance, Rock You All Around the World and Wild Nights, Hot & Crazy Days, all of them great party songs. Private Property and Hot for Love try to be more serious but can't quite get there with all the synths, and are probably the weakest tracks on the album (although I love the solo in Hot for Love). Conclusion: I like the album, but it's not so much Priest as other albums. But I still listen to it regularly.

[soul stealer] Wednesday, March 09, 2011 2:08:13 PM 
i think that these 2 were a little too influenced by the glam of that time. true they are not the best but i wouldnt say crap. i just accept them as a part of priest.
[Becks] Tuesday, March 08, 2011 10:10:22 PM 
Sounds like me metalgodess. I like POE more than Turbo, but both albums unfortunately have a fair few bad songs. Turbo more so I believe, POE is underrated more often than not in my book.

To you in your opinion they are better than "that nordic black metal shit" but to me they are not,I'd take old Darkthrone over Stryper "ANYDAY".    That progressive symphonic music for nerds or that "metal-for-gangsters" nu "metal" american bands of today I fucking HATE too,I hate them just about as much as I hate Stryper. Wrong thread opps!

Both albums generated my fewest favourite songs, so when I posted my Epitaph tour setlist requests, I had no problem sticking to only 1 song from those 2 albums.  Truthfully I'd forsake any songs from Jug, POE, Demo & Turbo just to get extra tunes off DOTF, Painkiller, or the earlier albums.
[EdgarV72] Tuesday, March 08, 2011 4:30:50 PM 
Man, they are gone, you know?? but still they are much better than that nordic black "metal" shit or those progressive/symphonic music for nerds or that "metal-for-gangsters" nu "metal" american bands of today
[J.D. DIAMOND] Tuesday, March 08, 2011 4:21:18 PM 
Cause they are a bunch of posers that look like fucking whimps and that infects the music,I hate watered down heavy metal and I hate and never liked glam rock like Motley Crue. I hate the watered down sound of modern day Iron Maiden but would listen to that before a band like Stryper,sorry lol!

[J.D. DIAMOND] Tuesday, March 08, 2011 3:58:22 PM 
Oh bullshit in my opinion,"Turbo" is 100% "CRAP".  Judas Priest sunk mighty low in 1986 when they sold out to the American market of hair bands,that album I hate with a passion,even though Reckless is "ok" I still can't stand to listen to it because it is a "Turbo" memory and that sucks armpit hair to begin with!  And how can you call this atrocity a iconic 80's metal masterpiece?

Demolition is absolutely worse than Turbo is,I can't fathom in a million years what Budred sees in this terrible LP,YUK Budred lol!  Jugulator isn't much better but it still isn't Judas Priest in my eyes.    Point Of Entry is half good and half crap,just like Ram It Down is.     Turbo,Jugulator,Demolition and Nostradamus I will never own in my collection because I would never listen to them and I would HATE seeing them next to "classic" Priest albums.

No Judas Priest album is crap, man, don't blaspheme... Point Of Entry is a good sounding classic album and Turbo is an iconic 80's metal masterpiece... Jugulator & Demolition are the closer thing to crap that J.P. has done but just some songs....
[Juda SveŠenik] Tuesday, March 08, 2011 2:30:11 PM 

Point Of Entry is a classic, one of my favourite. Most of the songs are great, and it's the only album featuring 3 music videos, if I'm not wrong. I'm not a fan of Turbo album, but Out In The Cold is a brilliant song.

[JudasPriest #1 Chilean Fan] Thursday, February 24, 2011 4:40:37 PM 
Call Crap Point of Entry is Blasphemy!!!.... Point of entry is a great album, songs like heading out the highway, solar angels, hot rockin, desert plains are classics songs! are great songs. But we must recognize that exist another songs, not as good as those mentioned above. For example: All the way, You say yes (I hate this song in particularly) and Troubleshooter. The same thing occurs with Turbo. This record have amazing songs! like Turbo lover, a classic!, Locked In, Private Property, Rock you All Around the world, Out in the Cold, Wild Nights....etc. But the things here are a little different because Judas Priest didn´t sound like anything they have been done before, is a new sound...but not a crap!!

I just loveeeee the album Turbo!!!i love it nuff said.Point of Entry in my opion s good,but a bit boring....i never listen to the whole album,i sometimes do when im laying in bed...other than that i rarely listen to it.but Turbo is one of my faves.
[sentinel84] Saturday, January 08, 2011 9:59:35 AM 
both albums are classics I don't care what anybody says. The only reason people do not approve of these albums is because priest tried to experiment with them and they were not as heavy, not as easy to headbang to as an album such as British steel or defenders of the faith. But still both are great
[soccer star] Thursday, January 06, 2011 2:21:03 PM 
Well....i would take an album like either of these rather than no Priest album at all...

Now that Priest (and the Scorpions) are calling it a day and DIO no longer with us, who's next to retire? Maiden? Sabbath? 

Not great days for heavy metal.
[the highway terror] Tuesday, December 21, 2010 9:44:41 PM 
Both Albums were great ! I persoally favor Point of Entry  but Turbo was great too.
   I suspect that many fans just did'nt understand or expect Albums like these from Priest .
   I also think that time has proven the point that these albums were good , the Band still performs tracks from these albums to this day.
[K2M] Tuesday, December 21, 2010 5:18:13 PM 
And when are in the Desert Plains. That album kicks ass. Riding bikes, its hot , It Cranks.
[SpiralDrift] Tuesday, December 21, 2010 4:59:49 AM 
Both of them have really grown on me over time. For a while, Point of Entry was even my favorite Priest album. I've been playing Turbo pretty often lately. I'd always preferred the Priest...Live! versions of the songs, but I've warmed up to the studio versions.

The first half of Point of Entry is amazing. It may not be fast or heavy like their prior albums, but it's really unique and perfect for those days when you just want to relax. :)
[YngwiePriestRule!!] Friday, December 17, 2010 10:13:13 PM 
Both classics, without a doubt. I was one of those late eighties teens, for whom Turbo was my introduction to Priest. The song "Turbo" was a major staple on the local hard rock/metal station. This song catching my attention was what got me interested in Priest.  However.....

Once I knew that "Breakin' the Law" was also a Priest song, and which album Breakin' the Law was on, I was much more eager to buy British Steel on cassette than I was Turbo. 23 years after buying my first cassette copies of both albums, I love both albums more than ever, and never grow tired of either. My favorite of the two, though, has always been, and always will be, British Steel. 

And Point of Entry?? Classic. Period. naaahhhh. Exclamation point!!!!!!!! Love this album!!! While I love all Priest albums, I enjoy Point of Entry even more than British Steel. Nothing beats this album when driving on the open road, IMO. A long drive should always include: 1) Point of Entry 2) British Steel 3) Unleashed in the East 4) Saxon- Wheels of Steel 5) M.S.G.-Assault Attack

[black country boy] Wednesday, December 15, 2010 5:33:25 AM 
I think most people miss the point of these two albums, Metal was changing at this point.And has since gone through a lot of changes,So they are both relevant to the time they were released. Turbo has aged worse than point of entry (maybe only in my opinion),But both are still classic priest. Metal after british steel in the uk had to be radio friendly,And i think at this point priest realised this. Turbo era, hair(glam) metal was at the forefront,Again priest realised this. What a great band.

The Judas Priest show, was the best show. Ultra energy. Heavy Songs. With great variety.
[scthree05] Monday, November 08, 2010 10:24:33 AM 
I think ron h had a great point about point of entry following british steel. In that context i can certainly see why POE didn't hit alot of peoples expectations. Now that i have said that though i personally love POE, and Turbo has grown on me over the years. POE gave us many classics like, heading out, desert plains and my favorite solar angels. Turbo had a different sound, it wsn't as raw. But listen to the leads, some of my favorite leads come from Turbo. Rock you all around the world in particular.
                         sam
                     so to answer the qustion .....classic, they have never done bad album in my mind

You know, I think Point of Entry and Turbo is underestimated.
Point of Entry is a great album with a lot of great songs, such as Hot Rockin', Desert Plains, Don't go, Turning Circles etc..
And Turbo too. It sounds great with synthesizers!
Two of the greatest albums of all time. CLASSICS!

As long as we are on this topic, no "sorry" necessary. I stick by my guns. I flipped a Pontiac 6000 doing 100MPH+ to "Locked in."  I can look back and laugh now but that album meant a lot to me back in the day. I WILL say that I didn't like "Turbo Lover" in the second to last tour. Brought it all to a screeching halt, I say.

I also await a KILLER new album from the One and Only. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out how to wrap work around Halford / Ozzfest! I am looking at IL (first) or PA for anyone who can join me.

Lol isn't it weird (in a good way) how everyone has different opinions on this...

JD..You know what kind of music i love(and play) but believe it or not it was the songs from Turbo that got me into JP!! A friend of mine gave me a copy of Priest..live and i thought
'Out in the cold' and 'Rock u all around the world' kicked ass!! but my favourite from the dvd is 'Desert Plains'.

I guess if it wasn't for those songs i wouldn't have got in to Defenders..Ram it down or painkiller.
[ron h] Sunday, May 09, 2010 1:56:42 PM 
Yeah J.D., I can't (and won't) argue with you (or anyone else) about these 2 releases because they are at the bottom of my Priest release fave list (POE being at the bottom and Turbo the next to last).  The only thing keeping me from calling Turbo crap also is that it's what brought my kids into the Priest fold (Kevin has moved on to the heavier Priest, Turbo Lover is Bri's fave).  All that being said, I love Priest and their music and have bought all of their releases at one time or another (Rock'a Rolla on 8-track  lol).  As mentioned earlier, and I think you and I have debated this in the past, Turbo is what I consider a gateway album as a way to introduce Priest to the not so Metal community (family / friends), much more so than POE or any of their other releases, which is why I'll call Turbo a classic...used very loosely in this thread.  lol

(I otherwise wholeheartedly agree with you )

Point Of Entry "CRAP"? Turbo "CLASSIC"? LOL! All I have to say is "WOW".  Yes Point Of Entry is not the greatest,but it kicks the shit out of "Turbo" in my books.The 4 embarrassing songs on the album are Don't Go,You Say Yes,Trouble Shooter and All The Way. The On The Run track is dull but passable.

Turbo's entire side one is utterly embarrasing! Turbo lover,Locked In is total shit(sorry Ron & Guido this song fuckin sucks! HAHA)Private Property,Parental Guidance and Rock You All Around The World...all 5 songs are Priest at thier lowest point in theier career. Out In The cold is not shining Judas Priest,Wild Nights is way but too poppy,Hot For Love is embarrasing and Reckless is alright.

9 songs off the Turbo album and only one song is passable "Reckless" the other 8 are shit. And not to mention the image of Turbo...YUK,the "sound" of Turbo is trendy and unacceptable.Point Of Entry was a let down coming off British Steel but nowhere near the letdown Turbo was coming off an album titled 'Defenders Of the Faith"? What were they thinking?

Jimmy thinks Hot Rockin is lame,I can't fathom that but if that is lame then what is side one of Turbo? lol! At least Point Of Entry has 5 good songs,even take one away ...4 good songs and Turbo has one.Turbo is Judas Priest's worst album of all time,even worse than Nostradamus but I'm glad you enjoy it Ron,if I ever hear that album again "it will be too soon"!!!!!! Arrghh I fuckin hate that album with a freakin passion!!

[ron h] Sunday, May 09, 2010 11:21:06 AM 
Ok, I've stared at this thread long enough...

Point of Entry...at the time it came it was on the heels of British Steel, so I felt like I totally wasted my money at the time.  Priest were getting harder and faster the last several releases and POE was a complete buzzkill by comparison.  All I can remember thinking (at the time) was that I couldn't wait for the next album.  Being 15 or so at the time, I was a bit rebelious and the album as a whole was a drag.  I'd like to say that as the years have gone by, I now appreciate it more than then, but I don't.  I like the message of Heading Out to the Highway, but have grown bored of the music itself.  I can listen to the album now and enjoy it to a degree as it's Priest, but the album just drags.

Turbo...most of you (ahem) 'old-timers' here at the Board already know how I feel, but just to re-cap...at the time I was totally embarassed and thought it sucked!!  I mean, I wouldn't even play it after the first listen!!  The difference between Turbo and POE is that over time I have come to enjoy it...to a point!!  A couple of songs still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up (YES, even to this day lol ...Parental Guidance and Private Property).  When Turbo came out I was married, in the Marines and had been halfway around the world and back and I just couldn't relate to this teeny-bop type of music.  As the (my) kids grew up and sampled my music, they liked Turbo for it being up-beat and catchy compared to alot of the other music...at least it was Priest (I said to myself...many many times  lol).  I do like the songs Locked In and Reckless and can pretty much listen to the entire CD now (with the 2 above mentioned excluded).  

Classic or Crap??  My opinion is that POE is Crap and Turbo is Classic for very different reasons, but I have and will listen to both again many times before my number is called. 
[soccer star] Sunday, May 09, 2010 10:19:21 AM 
Wouldn't it funny if Next year Priest celebrated 30 years of Pint Of Entry by touring and playing the album start to finish lol I would pay to see it.

I would like to see em play more song's off POE & TURBO on their next tour and maybe a couple from Ram It Down...the solo's on the title track are FANTASTIC!!!
[Becks] Friday, May 07, 2010 6:19:38 PM 
That's basically how I feel about Turbo too, it's ok, has a few good songs, some craptacular ones, as a whole, meh compared to DOTF, SFV etc.

Yeah the whole albums ok, just not up to par with most of it's predecessors. I like Out In The Cold too.

The Don't Go video cracks me up! lol  All the Way is pure crap and makes me sick, You Say Yes is even worse, and then finally Trouble Shooter takes all the crap, rolls it into one, and makes you vomit, or at the very least hit skip almost immediatly.  I can deal with On the Run, not a fave but not tragic.

Haha I love Hot Rockin, it cracks me up. I just find it a good song to listen to and enjoy for what it is, a bit of silliness.
I think Reckless is a great track off Turbo, I also enjoy Out in the Cold and Locked In is alright too.

I hardly ever listen to Turbo but I have to say the only song off it I find stupidly annoying is Parental Guidance. The rest of it I can take or leave. On Point Of Entry there's three songs I can't stand, Hot Rockin' as you know, You Say Yes and Don't Go. The other four songs, Troubleshooter, On The Run, Turning Circles and All The Way, I can take or leave. I find it hard to imagine you getting into Turning Circles.

I Got together with another fan of Judas Priest that happens to be a brilliant writer as well to make a song for the PRIEST !!! I know it’s a long shot but I thing the band would get some kind of kick out of this. Here is a link

Thanks & BIG PEACE ~Brother Randy~

Well thats your opinion and your definately entitled to it,but in my opinion Hot Rockin' blows the shit out of ANY song off Turbo. And Turning Circles is a good track too. The 5 songs that I think are crap are Don't Go,You Say Yes,Trouble Shooter,All The Way and On The Run.  And Nostradamus vs.Turbo,I'd take Nostradamus but not by much,at least they don't look like a bunch of glam posers on that album/live show lol!

86 was a shit year for metal. However of all the corny, commercial, light metal albums Tubo is the best. Priest had a crack at taking on the likes of Europe, Ratt and Dokken and all those other god awful bands at their own game and beat them in my opinion. Turbo is pretty average in comparison to DOTF, SWOD, Stained Class, SFV, BS but it's so much better and has stood the test of time better than everything else that came out at that time. I walked into a bar in Vancouver a couple of years ago and Turbo Lover was cranking and the bar was going off, people were loving it. So anyway Turbo is a classic, probably one of the best light commercial metal albums ever. I've gotten way more enjoyment from Turbo than Nostradamus. 

Point Of Entry has three great, classic metal songs, Desert Plains, Heading Out To The Highway and Solar Angels. The rest of it is crap. Everyone seems to like the song Hot Rockin' but I think it's a fucking stupid, shitty song and probably the second worst on the album after You Say Yes. Still though based on the strength of those three songs I would have to say it's a classic as they are that good. If I was compiling a 20 song Priest setlist Desert Plains, HOTTH and Solar Angels would be on it. Not sure if any of their other albums would get three songs in a dream setlist. There's not one song on Nostradamus that would make that setlist.

So in summation both are classics.

Of these two classic albums, my favourite is Turbo.
[Sheba_69] Wednesday, May 05, 2010 12:07:32 PM 
I agree that both are classics. Its Judas Priest!
[Juanma_lml] Tuesday, May 04, 2010 3:02:53 PM 
I think both are great albums, and i agree with you soccer star, it would be great if they could play songs like heading out to the highway, solar angels or turbo lover, but there are plenty of good stuff in Priest...
[JellyDevils] Tuesday, May 04, 2010 8:07:55 AM 
I really love Point of Entry ... lately I'm listening it a lot ... is one of my favourites when I'm too nervious "because this job that ate my brain" ... xD

[aceroperuano] Tuesday, May 04, 2010 1:04:09 AM 

I like First Half of POE, and Desert Plains song, about Turbo, well probably my less favorite album of the band after Rocka Rolla(solid hards rock, but I'm fan of Priest most for the Metal era), just a couple of good songs, out in the cold, turbo lover and rock you around all the world....yeah, I actually like that song...a lot!! blame me but is catchy!!ha!!.

I love the POE album. I thought it was great. Very underated IMO. My favorite video of Priest's is "Heading out the the Highway"  also one of my favorite inspirational songs. Turbo.....well the guys looked hot during that era (well, which era did they not look hot in?)  I do like the music but it is not at the top of the list.

Remember when the 8 track was done poorly (most always) and in the middle of a damn song it would fade out! Switch to the next track, if you were lucky and continue the song! Those things sucked big time!

I have been a long time Priest fan, since I was about 13 years old. I am currently almost 40 (YIKES) I have almost every cassette tape, including the Rocka Rolla from Canada, I had to literally retape it as I love the whole thing, and I could not bear that it might be lost to a sullen tape player. I love these guys, hope I am like respectful enough to become a part of this site. I am also an artist that has drawn KK Downing in pencil, many of the JP album covers(God, do albums still exist??!!) and I just fuckin love you guys!! And you too, Ripper Owens!!!!!!! Peace out and hope ya like this shit!! By the way, yes, I do own Cd's!!!!!
[Becks] Saturday, May 01, 2010 8:39:57 PM 
I think POE is VERY underrated. There's some really great songs on that album, I really enjoy it. Turbo has some songs on it I like, but as a whole is meh. Reckless kicks ass though lol.
