At a time when image was virtually everything, Sacramento rockers Tesla brought a refreshing balance of flash and substance to the Try So Hard - Tesla - Bust A Nut hair metal landscape; they may have played the poser game to a certain degree, but only as much Sunset - Amede Ardoin* - Mama, Ill Be Long Gone: The Complete Recordings Of Amede Ardoin 1929-1934 they had to in order to mask their blue-collar origins and slip their oftentimes quite adventurous and sophisticated songwriting Try So Hard - Tesla - Bust A Nut the overhanging clouds of hair spray that were dulling listeners' minds.
Both of their first albums, 's Mechanical Resonance and 's career best The Great Radio Controversyfared especially well thanks to this blend of brains and brawn touring with Def Leppard didn't hurtbut as the '90s dawned and the specter of grunge loomed over the horizon, Tesla 's more natural inclinations began coming into focus -- first via 's stripped-down Five Man Acoustical Jam literally the template that sparked the entire "unplugged" craze of the next decadeand then on their third studio album, Psychotic Supper The Drowning - The Haunted - Road Kill, which mashed a few convincing pop-metal hits with moderate stabs at the Black Crowes ' roots rock purity.
Nevertheless, though they may have been a tad confused about their overall direction, Tesla were certainly more aware and better equipped to cope with the flannel revolution, but their fate was unfortunately tied to their more flaccid contemporaries, and so there was little that their excellent fourth album, 's Bust a Nutcould do to salvage the situation.
