Has anyone else heard this album?? I'm playing it for the first time as I write this...so far really high quality MR/AOR. 'Hangin On Your String' is awesome. NB: these guys are not to be confused with at least two other bands of the same name, this band is from Germany.

Yes, I have got this one. Very good album !! A bit rare these days, I believe, but definitely worth checking out.

I'd describe it as late 80s hi-tech AOR/POP AOR. Smiliar to The Arrows or Cats Can fly if my memory serves me right.

That's immediately what I thought of when I saw that album cover. But Justin's description is interesting. Do these guys have any balls? How hi-tech are we talking? I hate hi-tech AOR. Really hate it... :)

Yeah, I know what your saying...I'm not usually a big fan of Hi-Tech stuff either. Whilst there's a few more straight up melodic rocks songs on here, it tends to become more Hi-Tech sounding later in the album. 'Hangin On Your String' is still a really great track and overall I actually really enjoy this album a lot. There's a sample of 'Hangin On Your String' here at AOR FM

    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.
