Psychotic Supper

PSYCHOTIC SUPPER

1991

PSYCHOTIC SUPPER “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. 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. Like all TESLA albums, a strongly recommended buy.

    I seen this band like 9 times. When I would hear the song “man out of time” that would send me on a passionate high and I would sing it with anger…. well, as it turns out, I discovered that I was the reincarnated Nikola Tesla!
    And I didn’t die of natural causes. I was killed for not playing ball, with the government during the phildelphia experiment. I needed for time, which they didn’t gave me. I wanted to make these point zero time band for the boys, and military didn’t want to spend extra money on top of that. So I said “see ya” didn’t want blood on my hands, and cared for the boys well being. It wasn’t an experient to turn invisible under radar, but to time travel. I saved our country when the boys went to the future to retrive a weapon to beat the Nazis and their ufo crafts… wild isn’t it?
    The band helped me discover who I was. I even met the guys in NYC. At the roxy. (studio 54) in their unplug tour. Jeff you were so cool. Troy got his car tolled away. Frank was totally cool as well.
