Tesla - Thinking Mans Metal!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mechanical Resonance (Audio CD)
Tesla's debut album aledgedly claims on the inside cover that a certain Mr Marconi did not invent the radio, instead it was a Mr Tesla who, before his untimely demise failed in his attempts to get his patent recognised. Tesla should get their unique and brilliant sound patented as soon as possible because to copy their style and sound would be truly criminal. This album offers the listner a mixture of styles, from the heavy guitar orientated "Ez come Ez go" to the solid metal/blues of "We're no good together" followed by the sublime "Modern Day Cowboy". This album will, forgive the cliche - rock your socks off. If you purchase this, look out for their 'Five Man Acoustic Jam' which offers rare insight into the live capabilities of a band who just have not had the credit they deserve over the seas in 'old blighty'. Tesla have found that magical mix which takes them away from mainstream metal and plants them firmly into the brilliant metal catagory.
