LMFAO!! I reckon.... Turbo hardly leaves the CD rack let alone the house. Sorry but it's too weak - it was THE sell out album.. I can see why alot of people stopped listening to them at this (album) point... It's so flat, dull, unintelligent.. The lyrics are so simple... I think the guys got lazy or something when writting for this album. Even Robs singing lacks any real energy... where's the screams???? and the low pitched singing??? 'Turbo lover' he sings on one note for most of it. There's nothing epic about this album.
And those of you who got into Priest through this album... please tell me what other bands were you listening to at this point... seriously i'm intrested to know. Because this album does not represent was Priest was about for the 10+ years prior - This album was made clearly to sell to the audience that their music should never have appealed to and never had until Turbo. Basically in two words.... Sell Out.
I will add that, yes i do appreciate Turbo's place in history, but it's certainly not one i play often. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by ronhartsell from Saturday, October 25, 2008 6:25:02 AM)
Hey there Scorpion, how ya been?......I have to laugh with you 'cause I feel the same way...they just totally missed the mark with me on those two songs...NEVER EVER could I be caught jamming in the car at a red light with that on full blast!!......I love these guys as much as any fan could, and Turbo has it's place in Priest history...but the CD never leaves the house
I WAS LISTENING TO TURBO AGAIN TODAY. I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE THINKING AND WHERE THEY WERE COMING FROM WHEN THEY PUT "PRIVATE PROPERTY" AND "PARENTAL GUIDACE" ON THE ALBUM. THEY ARE PROBABLY TWO OF THE THREE PREIST SONGS I CAN DO WITHOUT. "ON THE RUN BEING THE OTHER". REPLACE THOSE TWO SONGS WITH 2 OTHER SOLD SONGS AND I THINK TURBO IS A STRONG ALBUM.
