Editorial Reviews

A little too edgy to be considered pop metal, Tesla were probably the least pretentious band of the genre. On Psychotic Supper, they focus on understated, bluesy hard rock, with an occasional acoustic guitar thrown in for variety. The result is well worth a listen, and this album contains some of their best material, including the anthemic "Edison's Medicine" and the no-bull "Call It What You Want." "What You Give" is a lovely, tender alternative to the syrupy power ballads that so many hard rock bands indulged in during the late '80s and early '90s. "Song & Emotion," another slow song, is a tribute to the late Steve Clark of Def Leppard. Tesla's favorite themes are evident on songs like "Change in the Weather," "Don't De-Rock Me," and "Freedom Slaves," but "Toke About It" shows that they also retained their sense of humor. --Genevieve Williams

From time to time, a hard rock act will step up to the plate with a flair and style that is undeniably different.

One of the best rock albums of all time for me.

I can't believe that I am only the fifth person to review this classic early 1990s hard rock album. Before this release, Tesla had already gotten pretty big with their sophomore effort and the live unplugged album, each of which yielded a top 10 hit. By the time this came out in the fall of 1991, the rock music landscape was beginning to change (i.e., away from melodic hard rock and toward unmelodic, whiny grunge). Still, this album held its own at the time with several rock radio hits.
"Edison's Medicine" is a very catchy rocker, and "Call It What You Want" is a fantastic, anthemic follow up. "What You Give" is over 7 minutes long--an amazing acoustic anthem/ballad that rivals the more well-known "Love Song" in terms of its musicianship. "Song And Emotion" is another slower track that is a touching tribute to Def Leppard's Steve Clark, who had died earlier that same year. I remember hearing all these songs frequently on rock radio at the time this album was out.
Other highlights include the catchy, heavy "Don't De-Rock Me", with an extended guitar solo and even a drum solo; the stirring (both musically and lyrically) "Freedom Slaves", which is a hard, anthemic rocker; and the amusing closing track, "Toke About It". Truth is, there is not a bad track here. It is an album full of hard rock highlights.
The band has called this their favorite album, so be sure to pick this up if you were ever a fan of Tesla and somehow missed out on this one. This is classic hard rock at its best. Even if you did not like the "pop metal" of the '80s, you very well may appreciate the straight-ahead, hard rocking quality presented here. Pop metal fans will appreciate this as well. Like all Tesla albums, a strongly recommended buy.

I was surprised by this album. Tesla had always been rockers, but one listen to the song Edison's Medicine proved these guys could really shred. Fans of great riff-based rock will love this album, fans of their song Love song will love What You Give, & any Def Leppard fan will appreciate the tribute to late Lep guitarist Steve Clark, Song & Emotion, basing the opening riff on Clark's original intro to Gods Of War. All in all, this ia a great album. Check out the other albums, too.

From time to time, a hard rock act will step up to the plate with a flair and style that is undeniably different. In the mid-80's thru the early 90's though, bands could be thrown into two piles-Metal/Hair or Grunge/Garage. Amidst this time frame, Tesla emerged with a brand of rock that not only did'nt go into the heap, but it epitomized what good, hard rock-n-roll should sound like in my opinion. If choosing a Tesla cd, I would pick Psychotic Supper, as it showcases the energy & flavor of the group true to form. If you crave unique rock with original hooks, you won't be disappointed. This ensemble leaves your blood tingling. And though they were surprisingly underated, (critics needed hearing aids) they rocked like no band did in 1991. And, uh-hum, like NO band does now.

Psychotic Supper seems to be the Tesla album most people forget when they're talking about the band. OK, Bust a Nut went largely unnoticed, but by 1994 nobody was really paying attention to this kind of music anyway. Psychotic Supper was released in 1991, right at the peak of the hair metal era, yet it never seems to get the same attention as Mechanical Resonance or The Great Radio Controversy. Maybe it was the lack of a major radio hit like Love Song.

Whatever the reason, Psychotic Supper just didn't get much attention, which is a shame when you consider just how good the album really is. I mean, Tesla's never released a bad album, but this is good even by their standards. There are a few filler tracks (Don't De-Rock Me, Time, and Had Enough) that prevent me from giving the album a full 5-star rating, but there are some amazing songs too. The heavy-hitting Edison's Medicine and Freedom Slaves are two of my absolute favorite Tesla tracks, Song & Emotion shows just how far beyond "hair metal" this band really was, and laid back songs like Call It What You Want and What You Give showcase the band's melodic style. Even the hemp-happy Toke About It and the folksy, 1-minute Government Personnel have a certain Five Man Acoustical Jam vibe. Lyrically, this may be the band's best work.

I own ALL of Tesla's stuff, bought when it came out ( Mechanical Resonance and Great Radio Controversy on VINYL for crying out loud!), and I think this is their best. Granted, it's tough to choose a best from a band with this kind of TALENT (they have NO PEERS), but after about a million listens I have to go with Psychotic Supper; yes, it rocks even harder than Mech Resonance. These guys are freakin' ARTISTS. I saw there was only 1 review for this CD; that's SAD. Wake up, people!! All Tesla's stuff gets 5++ stars. Serious guitar work, here. If you dig Tesla, check out Badlands 1st CD; they are the only other band I know of that even approaches the talent of Tesla. Buy the CD, you CAN'T go wrong!
