  • I can’t believe that I am only the fifth person to review this classic early 1990s hard rock album. Before this release, Tesla had already gotten pretty big with their sophomore effort and the live unplugged album, each of which yielded a top 10 hit. By the time this came out in the fall of 1991, the rock music landscape was beginning to change (i.e., away from melodic hard rock and toward unmelodic, whiny grunge). Still, this album held its own at the time with several rock radio hits.”Edison’s Medicine” is a very catchy rocker, and “Call It What You Want” is a fantastic, anthemic follow up. “What You Give” is over 7 minutes long–an amazing acoustic anthem/ballad that rivals the more well-known “Love Song” in terms of its musicianship. “Song And Emotion” is another slower track that is a touching tribute to Def Leppard’s Steve Clark, who had died earlier that same year. I remember hearing all these songs frequently on rock radio at the time this album was out.Other highlights include the catchy, heavy “Don’t De-Rock Me”, with an extended guitar solo and even a drum solo; the stirring (both musically and lyrically) “Freedom Slaves”, which is a hard, anthemic rocker; and the amusing closing track, “Toke About It”. Truth is, there is not a bad track here. It is an album full of hard rock highlights.The band has called this their favorite album, so be sure to pick this up if you were ever a fan of Tesla and somehow missed out on this one. This is classic hard rock at its best. Even if you did not like the “pop metal” of the ’80s, you very well may appreciate the straight-ahead, hard rocking quality presented here. Pop metal fans will appreciate this as well. Like all Tesla albums, a strongly recommended buy.
