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??

Anyway  this motto adaptation  is a poor and lame  idea.Try to use  sovereign  sentences, because you're so intelligent person.
With the biggest IQ- sure haha!I believe you're not an idiot!

Music  is a subjective thing. it's not a vote question( i never wanna be a brainwashed loser haha!).I don't like Metallica!
    This is a simple situation! Try to understand guys, it  is not so difficult!  (But is chanceless.)
Popularity,music style etc. are subjective things too.Maybe lots of guy cannot read music well ,but they don't respect nobody
(except their personalities). They are very ridicolous.Sorry, but fact is fact.  Haha!

Never argue with an idiot.

Okay Fanboy, here's a curve ball for you - if you could only choose 1 album to listen to for a month out of "Turbo" or "Master Of Puppets" which would it be?

You see, for me a true fan can be objective too, and I know for sure which of those two 1986 albums is better & which one I would rather spend my time listening to as well.

A true fan (like me) loves every JUDAS PRIEST album(including Rocka Rolla,Point Of Entry,Turbo,Jugulator,Demolition,Nostradamus)!
I don't wanna accept or understand other opinions. The JUDAS PRIEST cannot create bad album!!! Please don't underestimate the
PRIEST albums on this site (especially nowadays)!         Thanx guys!

Anyway the girls were fantastic on  the "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" from Turbo tour video.Unfortunately i haven't seen lots of girl on the Epitaph tour in Budapest.
But it' s great to see pretty girls on a Judas Priest  show.Sorry guys but i love the girls!!!
[Budred] Wednesday, November 09, 2011 9:22:51 AM 
I'm not a homophobe but I thought it was so gay. From the nail polished fingers on the cover to the synth sounding
crap on the album. I was like great, a metal "Queen". I was almost embarassed to be a Priest fan at the time. Of course
I don't think like that anymore, I'm so much more tolerant now but I still think that album sucks. I'm so glad that album
tanked. Had it taken off we (actually you)(Turbo fans), would probably be reading the who's better, Priest or Bon Jovi
thread right now. Fuck that, I'd be on a metal band's site making fun of the "Is Priest a metal band thread?

With the exception of "Reckless" (which ironically is probably THE stand-out song from Turbo) JP played every song from that album live on the tour that followed, and then afterwards dropped every single one & apart from "Turbo Lover" haven't aired them since.

My guess is that they think the Turbo songs aren't very popular or are now a bit too obscure.

(To paraphrase Paul Stanley recently on the Kiss Kruise when playing some of their older & lesser played songs to the die-hard fans "Obscure can also means not very good!").

What ever style it is it kicks ass.
Judas Priest can make anything sound good even if it was some crappy pop song.
Judas Priest could make it sound worth listening too.

I personally thought that the Turbo album was awesome. There was different Era's of metal and turbo was made in the Glam Metal Era so I don't know why people are complaining about this album saying that its to glammy or whatever. That's what I read on google.... but Idk all I'm saying is that Turbo was another master piece of Judas Priest
But then again I think Priest had better albums then Turbo but Turbo was still good

[HELL BENT FOR JUDAS] Tuesday, November 08, 2011 6:43:29 PM 
I was in the Epitaph tour in Budapest."Turbo Lover" was successful.But i agree "Locked In" is better.

Nostradamus album are not extremely hard too.I have a suspect; lots of real hard core long time fan dont like the Judas Priest ! 
Guys i have an advice! Listen Nirvana or Spice Girls!

Haha!But the Jugulator is heavier than the Painkiller and its not too popular in the " tough " real long time fans' circle.

 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


[HELL BENT FOR JUDAS] Tuesday, November 08, 2011 5:35:20 PM 
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.

[HELL BENT FOR JUDAS] Tuesday, November 08, 2011 5:13:06 PM 
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.
[You Don't Know What It's Like!] Tuesday, November 08, 2011 4:33:13 PM 
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!

I love Robs's vocals on Turbo. He is was at the top of him game vocally in the 80s. Great stuff for sure.
[Nupe The Ripper] Friday, July 01, 2011 6:55:25 AM 
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))

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.
[soccer star] Monday, May 09, 2011 2:07:10 PM 
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
[spapad] Sunday, May 08, 2011 3:27:56 PM 
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.
[J.D. DIAMOND] Saturday, May 07, 2011 3:46:40 AM 
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 :-) 
[K2M] Thursday, May 05, 2011 4:51:31 PM 
Turbo is a Good record. It has the energy derived from turbos. It is the Lover like no other.
[Rik_] Thursday, May 05, 2011 12:03:56 PM 
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 !!!!
[Nupe The Ripper] Thursday, May 05, 2011 10:26:03 AM 
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.
[Metal Goddess] Thursday, May 05, 2011 9:50:45 AM 
One of their greatest albums. I don't know why it's so underrated
[allfearthe] Thursday, March 10, 2011 10:35:16 PM 
One of the greatest GLAM release definetely but sub-par for Priest(though I like it more than British Steel).
[The Metallian] Thursday, March 10, 2011 5:37:43 PM 
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!
[Brian_Evans] Thursday, March 10, 2011 5:26:31 PM

[parky-priest] Thursday, March 10, 2011 2:31:55 PM 
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!
[MotherSun] Thursday, March 10, 2011 1:28:51 AM 
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".
[electriceye69] Wednesday, March 09, 2011 11:19:41 PM
