Judas Priest - British Steel 30th Anniversay Edition


Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato
Judas Priest was one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the '70s, spearheading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal late in the decade. Decked out in leather and chains, the band fused the gothic doom of Black Sabbath with the riffs and speed of Led Zeppelin, as well as adding a vicious two-lead guitar attack; in doing so, ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Judas Priest - Turbo 1 Aug 2011
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Judas Priest's tenth studio album was released to a pretty negative reaction back in 1986. Their previous two albums Defenders Of The Faith and Screaming For Vengeance had been strong and heavy releases which established a certain expectation in terms of style.

Turbo didn't fulfill these expectations; in fact it was a departure of sorts. The album incorporated glam and hair metal influences, synths, big reverby production and all the other trademarks of the mid to late eighties that serve to date music from that period really easily.

Turbo was very commercial and people didn't like that. The album has been called a sellout, false metal, downright rubbish and much worse.

I actually like the album; it is something of a guilty pleasure for me. I still recommend that people try before they buy; this is not an album for everyone. I hear and understand everything that is wrong with the record and why people hate it, but just personally don't find it in me to dislike the album.

Tracks like `Parental Guidance,' `Wild Nights, Hot & Crazy Days,' and `Private Property,' are unbelievably cheesy I agree, but they are fun and I like listening to them. If you don't mind a bit of commercial music then disregard the huge amounts of negative press that this album receives, believe me it is only a disagreement over style; the actual quality of the album isn't taken into account.

5.0 out of 5 stars You're In For A Treat 30 Jun 2004
By DocBhoy
Format:Audio CD
I recently bought this , having owned it on vinyl in the 80's when it first was released . This was my first Judas Priest album , bought on the strength of the single 'Turbo Lover' , but I'm pleased to say it wasn't my last .
The significance of the use of Synth Guitars on this album was a point of much debate amongst fans and press alike , I personally felt it added an extra dimension to their music . The songs are all strong - Rob Halfords air-raid siren vocals remain distinctive as ever , and the production brought the guitars to the forefront as much as had been seen on any previous 'Priest album . The twin lead guitar attack of Judas Priest has long been an underestimated force , and Glenn Tipton is a guitar hero who long has gone without the proper recognition .
Whilst I bought other Judas Priest albums ( Painkiller , Ram It Down , 'Priest Live , Defenders Of The Faith , British Steel ) , this was always the one that I have returned to with fond memories .

4.0 out of 5 stars It's got Legs (and TV Dinners) 3 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is oft referred to disparagingly as 'Turdo', which is a bit off the mark. On the downside, it is of its time (mid 80s, big hair) and it does ape the ZZ Top electronic buzz sound of Eliminator or Afterburner, particularly on tracks like the driving 'Turbo Lover', 'Hot For Love' or 'Locked In'. Another niggle is 'Rock You Around The World', which kicks off with a promising riff but descends, for the most part, into a sing song watered down version of the Priest anthems of, say, 'United' and 'Take On The World'. Thankfully it rallys towards the end, as the guitars let rip, but this is a track that is better suited to the live environment of 'Priest Live', recorded on this tour. In fact most of the songs on this CD get aired on Priest live and this does lift them a bit from the extremely polished and digital sound present on the studio cd - only Hot For Love, Reckless and the awful Hot Nights don't make live cuts in any of Priest's live issues (unfortunately in the case of the former 2). Another noticeable difference is the fact that Dave Holland 'operates' the drums in the live environment whereas I am guessing that his involvement on the studio version was to make the tea.

On the whole though, unlike the turgid 'Ram it Down' that follows it, which tries to draw on grimey black country 'Iron Foundry' roots to find its mojo ( as a reaction to the critical mauling that this CD got), this is firmly planted in the feel good factor of the sun drenched beaches of Ibiza or Florida. In that respect, breezy throwaway tracks like 'Parental Guidance' or 'Reckless' make you feel good, so for that reason it gets the thumbs up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A NEW DIRECTION FOR PRIEST.... 3 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Its funny to look back at how different metal bands embraced the new guitar synth technology in the mid eighties. While Iron Maiden upped the ante and made Somewhere In Time, the most epic, ambitious and complete album in their catalogue, Judas Priest took the opposite road and gave us Turbo, their most shamelessly commercial release yet.

So is it any good? Well, its an album of two distinct halves. On the one side you have songs like Turbo Lover, Hot For Love, Out In Cold and Reckless. These songs are heavy and dark, brooding and dripping with lust and desire unfulfilled...not a million miles away from the kind of stuff on Vain's legendary 'No Respect' album. The Synth intensifies this atmosphere with its warm, smothering prescence.... yet the guitars remain prominent throughout. Turbo Lover and Hot for love contain two of the best solos in Priest's catalogue....melodic yet completely dischordant, and massive souding thanks to the synths. Out In the Cold is the albums dark and menacing ballad, and Reckless simply has to be heard to understand the incredible feeling of empowerment it gives. (apparently Priest turned down the chance to have this in the film Top Gun...and kicked themselves for it later)

The songs that make up the other half of the album are straight up radio rock tunes of varying quality. Locked In is by far the best, being the least cringeworthy and containing one of the amazing solos as mentioned before. Easily one of the best songs in Priest's catalogue. Wild Nights Hot And Crazy Days is an excellent summer anthem and a masterpiece of pop metal, Rock You All Around the world teases you with an amazing opening riff before decending into cliched rubbish....but redeems itself slightly by being pretty hefty overall.
