5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing, even now. 20 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
Can't really put this into words. Second only (and by a hair's breadth) to Appetite For Destruction.
Stunning musicianship, incredible songs, fantastic twin guitars, tight-as-flip rhythm section. Tesla were once called thinking man's metal & also compared to Van Halen. What an insult!!
Tesla were unique. I remember seeing them support Def Leppard at Leicester in 1987 and they blew the Leps (one of my fave bands) off stage.
You can't pigeon hole Tesla. At their best (i.e. on this album) they were sensational. High octane rock music at it's sensational best. Unlike many others, this has stood the test of time & still sounds fresh as a daisy, even now. An incredible debut.
It's stunning, please buy it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Comin atcha! 18 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tesla-tastic 9 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Buy this album, you won't be disappointed! It has everything. My favourite track is "Modern Day Cowboy", it's an absolute stomper of a record. Tesla really stand out from the rest of the 80s/90s rock band crowd, their sound is truly unique. Once you've heard this, get hold of "The Great Radio Controversy", another fantastic album.
