Judas Priest: Painkiller

Released: Aug 1990. Genre: Rock. Styles: Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, British Metal. Number Of Tracks: 10. Painkiller is a qualified success ? the album's Achilles' heel is its lyrics, which rarely depart from standard-issue odes to heavy metal rebellion and comic book/fantasy themes.

judas priest: Turbocompact discs
Judas Priest: Turbo

Released: Apr 14, 1986. Genre: Heavy Metal. Label: Columbia. Number Of Tracks: 9. "Turbo", while far from perfect and failing to become a massive commercial success, is still being unfairly dismissed to this day. I think that everyone with even a casual interest in Priest pre-"Painkiller" should give it a chance.
