There are some people who don't like the more commercial, synth sounding approaching of the albumb TURBO? what do ou think about it and into which genre you fit it, I mean, does it has some "new wavy", "glammy" or something influence to your ears??

 turbo is a giant ball of steaming ,smelly sh*t !!!!

Thank God the guys realized what a giant f*ck-up they had done and tried to correct it with a lot heavier RAM IT DOWN and then with the masterpiece PAINKILLER.
Go ahead ,compare turbo to gems like SAD WINGS, BRITISH STEEL or PAINKILLER.
turbo was to Priest what Dynasty was to KISS, a complete sellout which real long time fans would rather forget.

I' m your turbo lover
I sold out over and over

Dont forget ! The Judas Priest changed the image in 1978 after 4 amazing studio albums!!!
      Judas Priest is not a media favourite band. But its the best and creative group.And the Turbo is far away from extremely money success!(Unfortunately)
I think they created this album without Poison influence.This idea is a big missconception. Media success depends on the business men's wills and
the music style is another history.

Anyway  the Judas Priest doesn't use lots of great and important song- at all or often- in live.For example; Rocka Rolla,Cheater,Run Of The Mill,Dreamer Deceiver,
Deceiver,Island Of Domination,Dissident Agressor,Here Come The Tears,Stained Class,Saints In Hell,Burnin' Up,The Rage,Don't Go,On The Run,Chains,Fever,
Eat Me Alive,Hot For Love,Reckless,Hard As Iron,Monsters Of Rock,One Shot At Glory ,Lots of Nostradamus song etc.   
The reason is simple and very good:the Judas Priest has a long, extremely influental and successful carrier with so many great songs.

I think people kind of fall into two camps with Turbo.

1. Those that were there when it came out & were pretty damn disappointed to see JP change tact & basically follow the glam trend (obviously in their own style, but it was definately an attempt to coin in some of that Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Poison & Cinderella etc cash).

2. Those that have come in at a later period & can't see what the fuss is all about - it's just another JP album with great songs & a slightly different production (plus they don't look like that now, and went back to their original studs, leathers & more traditional metal P.D.Q. too).

Basically, I'm in the first camp - it wasn't what I wanted from my favourite heavy metal heroes (but, it was a successful period for them non-the-less). Not touring the UK on this album didn't help either though, plus the fact that with the exception of "Turbo Lover" they dropped every other Turbo song from the live set after this tour probably says quite a lot as well.

 TURBO is an amazing album.
   This contains 9 catchy,energetic,demanding heavy metal songs with powerful and well-mixed sound.
The synth gives more sci-fi feeling to this album (Check out "Turbo lover"  or " Hot For Love" !).
Top10  vocal performances are in "Out In The Cold" and "Reckless".This album contains lots of
outstanding guitar solo.
   All in all i ignore the negative opinions and i enjoy the TURBO!

In my opinion this album is the 3rd best album after the Painkiller and the Ram It Down! \m/

I love Robs's vocals on Turbo. He is was at the top of him game vocally in the 80s. Great stuff for sure.

Well at the moment you should listen to Turbo and Ram It Down back-to-back and there's your Twin Turbos...

Until the band releases the remaining Turbo sessions tracks and the original 1985 demos for a few Ram It Down tracks, we can't get anything near the original Twin Turbos idea.

I'm not so sure they were trying something new. I think they did one of two things.
Either they sold out or they were following a trend.(which would still (kind of) be selling out)
Glam was taking off at the time and was all over MTV and I think Priest wanted a little piece
of that pie. Did you notice their attire on that album and tour and/or the hairspray. Checkout
the live album from that tour and it sounds so polished and the tempo seemed just a little slower.
Thank goodness they came back with Ram it Down and Painkiller. Back to the metal!!!
(Yes, I said Ram it Down(LOL))

I think I better run for cover . . .
Has anyone tried to re-assemble the Twin Turbos double album they were gonna put out but the record company wouldn't let them - is it better?

Turbo Lover seemed like a break from the really heavy metal for them. They wanted to try something new, and why not let them? The music on the album is overall catchy, I can enjoy it.

Well i don't agree with your views on the Turbo album but i do agree that the videos were funny :-)
Have you seen any of the TV commercials that Priest done for the Turbo album BACK IN 86 ? if not look em up on youtube..they kill me.

The one when Rob tripps that guy up had me rolling around LOL

I actually had the manager of a record store give me the demo to Turbo, because he was so disapointed in it. Once I heard it, I understood why. My all time most unfavorite album by JP. While some, and I mean a very few, grew on me over time, in general I was sad about that release.  I actually did enjoy the videos as they were funny. lol

I take your point JD and if i had followed Priest up to that point then i might have been pissed off but as i got into the band later on when most of the albums had been released
there wasn't that expectation in waiting for the next album (same as the Sabbath albums,as i enjoy songs of all the albums where as some fans couldn't get past Ozzy leaving).

However i was a bit miffed when Jugulator came out as i thought it was a weak album and the same goes for Demolition..i think Turbo is a better album than both of these.

It will be interesting to hear the new Priest stuff..did KK write some of the material before he left ? as all of Priest's best work was written by Tipton/Halford/Downing losing KK's input
could be a big blow to the songwriting machine.

For me its not the "party vibe" about the album i don't like.... Living After Midnight,Don't Hve To Be Old To Be Wise,Heading Out To The Highway all have an upbeat type of style yet none of the tracks from Turbo could possibly be close to the quality of those tracks. Turbo for me is the song writting that spanks of poor song quality. Its all personal opinions,but for me Turbo is the ultimate worse LP Priest have ever done.

Point Of Entry,Ram It Down,Jugulator,Demolition and Nostradamus all are better than Turbo in my opinion and of course the rest of Priest's discography is far better quality than the "T"  album I hate so much lol!  I was 16 when this LP hit the shelves and I almost cried it was "that bad".

I also got in to Priest through the Turbo songs and can't understand why the album is so underrated..
Maybe cus it has a 'party' element to it some people don't want to like it as it would harm their 'macho' metal image ?
[Rudy63] Friday, May 06, 2011 10:14:03 AM 
Sorry, I forgot the great hit OUT IN THE COLD. Adding to down mentioned list for Turbo, FIVE GREAT HITS IN ONE ALBUM IS NOT SO BAD, A?
[thekissofjudas] Friday, May 06, 2011 7:40:45 AM 
Agree. I discover Priest thanks to TURBO and I like it yet. There are some funny videos related to the songs, too.

      All extreme oppinions could'nt lead to the true. Wno can say the "WILD NIGHTS, HOT & CRAZY DAYS'', ''HOT FOR LOVE'', ''PRIIVATE PROPERTY'', ''TURBO LOVER''   are not great hits?!?   If find somebody he is probably without . . . ears :-)
