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.
