Turbo songs Product Information
After seeing the chart success that such acts as Van Halen and Motley Crue were enjoying with their melodic hard rock sound, Judas Priest decided to give it a shot with their 1986 release, TURBO. While it performed respectably on the charts, TURBO wasn't the big smash Priest hoped for, and it left many longtime fans puzzled as to the whereabouts of the old lethal Priest. ...See Full Description

||Open your eyes and ears, this album ROCKS|
So tired of hearing all the negatives about this album.. This was the one that got me into JP in the first place. I have happily discovered their earlier stuff and enjoy it all but this is still at least a tie for first place with defenders of the faith. 18 years later, the only songs that stick out as weak to me are Parental guidance and Rock you all around the world. You simply will not hear a better metal song than Reckless. This may have been a change in direction for Judas Priest, but it is FAR from being the stinker it has been labelled time and time again.

Judas Priest went to a more commercial look and sound. The sound actually works VERY well. Synthesized guitars mixed with real guitars as well as Rob Halford's scream vocals is a final conclusion of original sounding heavy metal. Now, the look is just like any other band at the time and I think us metal fans should cut these guys some slack cause to us now it all seems stupid but at the time it was the buisness. All the tracks are fantastic and the live version of "Locked In" brings the cd to a great close. I recomend this cd and don't get caught up in the mass attitude of, IT MUST BE METAL! ALL THE WAY! Music is freedom my friends and people who put rules on it are only trying to control it for they're own benefit.

Well the mighty Priest took its' foot off of the accelerator and released the most "80's" sounding album of their illustrious career. 5 of the 9 originals are worthy of the name with 4 being regrettable throwaways (tell me "parental guidance" EVER should have been recorded let alone released). Too commercial overall, Turbo does sport some 'tude on classic metal meteors such as the title cut, "Reckless", & Locked In" but this is no "Hell Bent For Leather" let me tell you. If you're wondering about the extra cut on the remastered version of this, "Fired Up" is one smokin' cut eclipsing much, if not all, of the original album. Some of the extra cuts were hit or miss on the remasters but like "Race With The Devil" off of Sin After Sin, Fired Up is well worth hearing & owning. The record company knew what they were doing by inserting one the best previously unreleased tracks onto one of Priest's weakest efforts. All in all, Preiest at their worst is still better than most and this is worth owning for nostalgia and the occasional time travel back to the 80's. Turbo-charged? Nah, this thing barely has a 100 HP 4 cyclinder but it will still take you from here to there.

||Great Priest album!!!|
Not as good as their earlier work like Defenders of the faith or point of entry but its still a great metal album. This album isnt pop, and its far from it! This is real metal! If you thiunk this is pop ,why dont you just go buy some disturbed or slipknot..your all nu metal fans anyways! This may have synthesizers on a few songs(most dont use them) but that hardly makes this CD pop! Heavy riffs, strong vocal, and great atmosphere make this one great. Best trax are Turbo lover,Parental Guidance, and Rock You All Around The World!!!

||Yes, it was an experiment...|
& it wasn't bad. Giving in to the current trend back then turned out pretty good. Mostly all the songs had good hooks & great riffs. It was about growing up & being wild. For anyone who was in that stage (like me), it was & still is a great anthem album.
