Well said!! spoken like a true yam yam ( i should know)  though i think if i had to take one of these albums on a desert  island it would Turbo..i think.

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.

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.
                     so to answer the qustion .....classic, they have never done bad album in my mind

Both albums are classics in my books. Not only for great songs in them, but the memories they bring with them.

Both albums i think are classics .But then i like songs like HOT ROCKIN AND RECKLESS.

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!

The embarassing part of the story is not the song, which I love by the way, but you admitted to driving a Pontiac 6000 !

lol! I know,ron and guido my opinion isn't the right one,its just one persons opinion out of millions of Judas Priest fans.But its fun to compare songs and albums even if your outlook is different. Hey,has anyone ever thought that there may not be a next studio album? The band hasn't peeped one word about it this year,who knows? That would suck.

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 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.

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!!

Ok, I've stared at this thread long enough...

Point of 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 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 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 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.
