Bought the 30th anniversary copy recently. Iíve always been a fan of this album, but itís definitely the bands Cold Lake.

Do you guys love it or hate it?

It has it's moments. Some of those tracks that were not included in the album after all (like All Fired Up and Prisoner of Your Eyes which Halford eventually recorded on his solo venture) are better than many of those that are included. These songs can be found on the CD remasters.

Reckless is one of my favourite JP songs. Pity they didn't include Heart of a Lion.

Love the first two songs, the rest not as much.

I love TURBO and I'm quite interested in the 30th anniversary edition. No idea why, but I just love this album and never have really understood the hate it still gets, 30 years later. It's actually one of my most played Priest albums Laughing

Same. Definitely check out the 30th anniversary release! Well worth the money.

Not even close to my favourite Judas Priest albums, but I don't think it is that shitty as people usually say it is.

For sure, it has a more accessible sound and is more 'easy listening heavy metal'. But I think it doesn't deserves the hatred it gets for that reason.

Great record!

The hooks on this record are really great, despite moving away from the classic Priest sound.
Besides, Turbo Lover is the only song I will play air guitar to Laughing

Turbo is cool. A buddy had the cassette in his van for awhile, so it was something we listened to nonstop for a few months.

And yes, Prisoner of Your Eyes is a killer song, I have it as a CD bonus track on SfV, I believe.

I've said this several times on this board, but here it goes again: IMO Turbo is one of the worst albums of all-time, an absolute abomination. Musically it's total poser crap (that fit perfectly with their poser look at that time), and the lyrics are embarrassingly bad. Hard for me to imagine that the same band that released the best song ever (Victim of Changes) could release garbage like Rock You All Around the World and Private Property. Ram It Down looks like a masterpiece compared to the crap that is Turbo!

For what it's worth, my first concert ever was Priest on the Turbo tour (with Dokken opening). I sat down during the Turbo songs!

This.

The whole Twin Turbo material (if that already included "Ram it down" and "Blood Red Skies") could have been used for one decent record and not for two rather average ones.
