5.0 out of 5 stars No words. Simply perfection in rock. December 15, 2006
By Jazzcat
Format:Audio CD
I'm so excited in writing this review, more than twenty years after I did buy this album. I'm excited in writing the review for Mechanical Resonance, MECHANICAL RESONANCE, which to me is like a picture from my youth, a smell from my youth, ... it is like having again the taste of the first kiss I had in my life. MECHANICAL RESONANCE GUYS!!!!! I remember quite clearly those days, when this album came out. Instead I can't remember how many times I have listened to this one. A billion maybe! It is the soundtrack of my teen age years! This album is just one of those albums that sign a time. It is simply perfect, one note after the other, one riff after the other, one song after the other, nothing is out of place here. This album is perfection in this style. Few albums in this style we love, rock, hard rock, metal, hair metal whatever you may call this, can match this perfection. But Mechanical Resonance is up there with the best of them in the very first positions. It was a shot in the dark to me! I will never forget the first listenings! I remember quite well I immediatly thought ... Wow this is unbelievable! Mechanical Resonance, yes, is perfect. It is the "Kind of blue" of rock 'n' roll, modern hard rock I might call this. Rock with chops, more chops than the Zep or Aerosmith. It was rock 'n' roll in the era of guitar heroes when the competition in guitar was very high. The guys from Tesla won that contest through a kind of Van Halen guitar style taking back to the simple and no frills rock'n' roll. This is the album to have from those years. From any era if you want a rock album that will shake your walls and delight your ears. It will never sound dated because it is simple and sophisticated, hard and tender, anthemic and brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start your TESLA collection here May 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: Jeff Keith (vocals), Tommy Skeoch (guitars), Frank Hannon (guitars, keyboards), Brian Wheat (bass), Troy Luccketta (drums & percussion). Hometown: Sacramento, CA.

THE DISC: (1986) 12 tracks clocking in at just under 54 minutes. Included with the disc is a 6-page booklet containing a 2-page intro to the making of the band, musicians, song titles/credits/times, and thank you's. All songs written by Tesla members except "Little Suzi" (Diamond/Hymas). Recorded at Bearsville Studios, Bearsville, NY. Label - Geffen.

COMMENTS: Start your Tesla collection with THIS album. "Mechanical Resonance" absolutely rocks. No filler - one blistering song after another. The album reached #32 on the Billboard charts. Certified radio hits with "Modern Day Cowboy" and "Little Suzi". Mild successes with "Changes", "Getting' Betta" and "Cumin' Atcha Live". 4 of the 5 here (minus "Cumin Atcha Live") made it to their "Time's Makin' Changes - The Best Of Tesla" disc. 5 songs from this album made it to their "Five Man Acoustical Jam" (1990) disc. "Mechanical Res" starts off fast and stays that way through track 7... with the exception of the slow and bluesy "We're No Good Together". The last 4 songs lean toward the slower/pop side. Simply a classic rock album (5 stars).

Behind the name - Nikola TESLA: Inventor, engineer, scientist... born: 1856 (Austria), died: 1943 (New York City). Inventions: a telephone repeater, rotating magnetic field principle, polyphase alternating-current system, induction motor, alternating-current power transmission, Tesla coil transformer, wireless communication, radio, fluorescent lights, and more than 700 other patents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock n Roll Perfection October 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yes, I was a hair metal 13-yr-old headbanger when this baby came out. But only this album makes me proud of that fact. While my friends were busy watching Ricky Rachman (or however you spell that idiot's name) helplessly hoping to regain their souls, I was busy losing my hearing on the only album that really mattered. If I have any Ratt or Cinderella or Dokken left in my collection, it's only there for comfort and reminiscence. This CD on the other hand finds it's way into a player at least once every couple of months. Like anything of quality, it's stood the test of time. It sounds as relevant today as it did back then. Maybe even more so, considering their lack of popularity when this was first released.

The Great Radio Controversy may have brought Tesla the limelight. It may even have more depth and breadth than this. But nothing has the prowess, consistency, and, well, the guts that this album displays. Great, down to earth lyrics, blistering guitar work X2, awesome use of modern musical technology, and an uncanny confidence and muscle about it that only Mick Jagger or Jimmy Page should be able to flex. How can this possibly be the sound of a band's first album? It's simply insane.

For those of you who only know the "Love Song" or "Signs" Tesla, slap some Depends on before you listen to this album. If memory serves, this release hangs in history somewhere between '1984' and 'Appetite for Destruction'. It's the perfect spot for it. If any comparison's can be attached to Mechanical Resonance, it would be a mix between those two albums. But take that and make it harder, slicker and somehow more raw. This is an essential album for any rocker. It's joining me on my way to work tomorrow, and the way home I'm sure. That's its only flaw: if I pop it in my CD player, I may not listen to anything else for a week or more. But the absence of diversity is more than worth it.
