BUST A NUT
By the late 80’s keyboard-led music became a necessity. TESLA came out of such an era but stayed simple just as Led Zeppelin, Early Deep Purple, or Whitesnake. They recreated straight Rock’n roll based on guitars and passionate vocals. Their style honors Nikola Tesla, legendary inventor, where the band name came from.
Borrowing Nikola Tesla’s 1943 invention, a machine cracking a nut, as the jacket image, the band fulfills the hard-rocking yet dynamic and acoustic rock to the edge.
The opening THE GATE/INTRO signifies their sound and SOLUTION rocks heavy. SHINE AWAY, TRY SO HARD are my top favorites from this album and the reason I love this album. NEED YOUR LOVING is the beautiful Purplish acoustic masterpiece track. ACTION TALKS and CRY are well set heavy tracks. Since ALOT TO LOSE they search for pop area using covers and renditional track. WONDERFUL WORLD, no doubt was inspired by Louis Armstrong classic WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD. Nice renditional track. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY is the full rendition of 1969 hit by Joe South.
The album was certified gold by RIAA on March 16th, 1995.
