What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 94 - Off the Rails Month, Part VII - Judas Priest - Turbo w/ Special Guest Jayln Graham Owens

September 9th, 2017

We're continuing our re-visitation of "Off the Rails Month", where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field, with Judas Priest's tenth studio album, 1986's "Turbo". And we're bringing Jalyn Graham Owens (author of "Graham: the First Twenty") from "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" along for the ride. Upon its release, "Turbo" sold well initially and was Judas Priest's last platinum album, but sales quickly tapered off and it has since become a controversial album. But what of this album? Was it a fun mid-80's party metal album, or was it painfully commercial and gruesomely meaningless? Tune in to find out.
