Twisted Wires & the acoustic sessions…
This is a fantastic CD release by TESLA titled “Twisted Wires & the acoustic sessions…” This CD (12 tracks) features two brilliant brand new tracks, namely “2nd Street” & “Better Off Without You” as well as ‘the older’ 10 songs being a combination of the last recorded (acoustic tracks) with the former guitarist Tommy Skeoch in 2005 & acoustic remakes/versions from their catalog.
Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include “Second Street” (wonderful melody, acoustic guitars & vocals), “Better Off Without You” (beautiful guitar chords, melody & vocals) & “A Lot To Lose” (incredible melody, harmonies/vocals & guitars). Great tracks include “Into The Now*”, “Hang Tough”, “Edison’s Medicine*”, “What You Give” (a slow track with great guitar finger pick-ups & vocals), “Shine Away*” (great guitar work & interesting harmonies), “I Love You*”, “Changes” (great piano & guitar chords combination), “Caught In A Dream” & “Song And Emotion”. On overall, Tesla (being known for their brilliant combination of acoustic & electric guitar sounds) will impress you in this CD ‘Twisted Wires’, a highly recommended CD listening. I was pleasantly surprised at the enjoyment I felt listening to this CD (acoustic tracks). A well deserved 5 star performance!
