I only have 1 Tesla cd and this is it. I've owned it for 20 odd years and it's always lurked in the section of `I know it's quite good, but I have better things to listen to' in the collection. Reappraising it now is interesting. The memory of what made it good remains strong. The singer has a big range and can switch effortlessly from a raspy, warbly and bluesy feel to a high pitch shriek, very reminiscent of the vocalist from Q5, whilst the songs are built on simple massive riffs locked together by a simply huge thudding bottom end, courtesy of a rock solid and pounding drum and bass section. Reappraising it now it reminds me musically of an American version of Little Angels, Jagged Edge or even, in parts, like a fresher, simpler and more immediate Def Leppard. However the strong American influence gives it that x factor which kicks superb songs like Modern Day Cowboy, Easy Cum Easy Go and Coming Atcha Live into almost classic territory. The production and performance gives the whole a real live in the studio feel to it, particularly with oodles of swishy cymbals, pulsating bass and neat little slides down the fret board - this lends immediacy and avoids over production which would have killed the relatively straight forward songs.
If you like uncomplicated big sounding American `Rawk' then this is definitely worth having.
