Not sure how much of an advance I was actually listening to because I can't find anything on the net on this one, but I believe this is their new album due in 2009? My thoughts?

 

Well, I started listening to this and I was honestly considering turning it off. Not awful, but never been a huge fan of these guys. It was reminding me a lot of a bad punk band mixed with Simple Plan (debut) mixed with Pretty Boy Floyd... but not anywhere near as good as PBF. But then as the album progressed I warmed to it. The lyrics don't get any better (pretty painful at times. People are saying a 13 year old could write Steel Panther lyrics... well, wheel in a 3 year old for these guys), but the songs later on have a bit of charm to them. I quite like some of the later songs and it's worth checking out if you like that real, true, baby-lyriced glam. Songs about summer loves, meeting girls in school, fairytale romance etc. Worth a go. But be warned, 'Leather Boyz...' is a "mature" album compared to this one. At least the 2nd half is much better than the punk-ish start anyway. :)

Could never get into these guys and after listening to that ... still can't.

They are definitely hard to swallow, but there are some good moments on this disc. Still, over 18 tracks at least half of them are duds.

Finally got around to having a good listen to this one.

Definitely a few fillers amongst the 18 tracks, but still soem great glam-punk.

I'd say if they cut it down to 13-14 tracks the overall quality would be so much better.

 

One song has one of those lines that goes around and around in your head for days....

"My guardian angel is a fallen glamour punk...."

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • 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!
