The songs on WIRES are an eclectic lot; Tesla didn't take the predictable/commercially safe route of just recording unplugged versions of their biggest hits. There are live staples "Changes", "Hang Tough", "What You Give", and "Song and Emotion", but a number of lesser-played/lesser-known songs too, like "Caught In A Dream". The Climax Blues Band cover "I Love You" is pleasant but not the album's strongest song; but new songs "2nd Street" and "Better Off Without You" are prime Tesla and good listens. Tesla fans will dig TWISTED WIRES.
For the most part, Twisted Wires is a collection of acoustic reworkings of classic Tesla songs. Some of the songs turn out like you'd expect ("Caught Up in a Dream" and "Song & Emotion" for example) and others (like "Edison's Medicine" and "Hang Tough") sound almost like totally new songs. Speaking of which, there are a couple of new tracks as well. "2nd Street" and "Better Off Without You" are both really good new songs, and there's a new cover song, this time the Climax Blues Band's "I Love You." The album is really solid throughout, and is a lot of fun overall.
It's not a must-have album, but serious Tesla fans are definitely going to want to check out Twisted Wires. It's another great example of how versatile and truly talented this continually underrated band really is.
