30th Anniversary Edition first remastered re-release of the tenth full-length album by legendary British Heavy/Speed Metal band.
British Metal legends Judas Priest for a second time reissued "Turbo" album, originally released in 1986. Always believing that Metal should have no boundaries, Priest challenged themselves taking on board new technical inventions to create fresh ideas and push their sound forward. Searching for a way to retool their sound, Judas Priest attempted to accentuate their melodic side on "Turbo" by incorporating synthesizers and '80s Pop-Metal stylings ("Wild Nights, Hot & Crazy Days" sounds more like Poison, albeit with synths). The restrained songcraft sometimes pays dividends, especially on the PMRC-bashing "Private Property" and "Parental Guidance", and the synth-driven leadoff track "Turbo Lover", the latter of which is easily the best song on the record, and a successful reimagining of the Priest formula. The album features all the hallmarks of classic Judas Priest on tracks such as “Turbo Lover”, “Parental Guidance” and “Locked In”.
This album is an essential part of the Judas Priest catalogue. Originally recorded with the band's long term producer Tom Allom, this album marked a distinctive change in the band’s sound by the use of synthesized guitars but still keeping their classic Heavy Metal style that Judas Priest were synonymous with!
