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 Good record. It has the energy derived from turbos. It is the Lover like no other.

if I remember it got slated at the time for the use of guitar synthesizers etc. Despite this there are  tracks on it I quite like including the title track, and it still has Priest written all over it. maybe not the best album by any means , but to those that think it's their worst I only have one thing to say to you.... Nostradamus !!!!

I'm actually listening to the original 1986 Turbo vinyl right at this moment.

It's a party album. Great when you have friends over at your house and know that they don't really care for typical heavy metal. It might not be so hard-edged than other Priest albums, but there's Priest's greatest strength as well: they sound very different on each album. Definitely not the worst that Priest has put out over the years.

One of their greatest albums. I don't know why it's so underrated

One of the greatest GLAM release definetely but sub-par for Priest(though I like it more than British Steel).

I try not to think of it!
It was the end of a great era of Priest!
I still remember waiting for a follow up to the mighty Defenders and then i bought this on tape in April 1986.
At first i thought it was the wrong tape!
But,it was not and the disappointment that followed continued for years til 2005's AOR was released!
I am probably the only person on the planet that don't care for Painkiller.
It just doesn't do anything for me,it was Priest trying to fit in when they use to lead the pack!
So,yeah,i try not to think of Turbo or 1986,bad year for metal!
Except,Master Of Puppets was the album that kept my metal faith that year!
Something Priest preached about 2 years before but went back on their word word with Turbo!
That April was a sad depressing time upon hearing that album for the first time!
Shockin it was and still is!
It was the very beginning of that awful hairspray metal period,uugggghhhh!
Poison,Winger,Bon Jovi,Warrant and all that shit fuck music!

 It's an embarrassement.

The guitar work on Turbo is excellent and despite the fact that it is not a heavy album there are some first rate songs such as Reckless, Locked In, Hot For Love and Out in The Cold. I love the heavier albums but I have to admit that Turbo gets a very regular spin on my turntable and I would like to hear Reckless on the Epitaph tour!

It's pretty good for being a glam album, but I consider it a weak release from Priest. Though it has it's moments like "Turbo Lover", "Locked In" and "Reckless".
