Editorial Reviews

The self produced album of 12 songs features two new unreleased songs called 2nd Street , and Better Off Without You , as well as the final recordings of the original lineup with former guitarist Tommy Skeoch from 2005. The aptly titled album is not only called TWISTED WIRES & the acoustic sessions... for the way Tesla has always seemed to seamlessly blend acoustic and electric guitar sounds in their music, but is also descriptive of the bands continuous and tumultuous ride over the past 25 years, overcoming the ups and downs of rock and roll. From the band that sparked the unplugged craze of the 90s with 5 Man Acoustic Jam , and the radical electric guitar riffs of Modern Day Cowboy featured on the latest Guitar Hero game, now comes TWISTED WIRES & the acoustic sessions... a creative mix of past and present, as well as a classic rendition of Climax Blues Bands I Love You which so happens to be the first song TESLA recorded together after reuniting from a painful 5 year break up. Take a spin of the new disc by TESLA and enjoy the celebration of 25 years with America s gritty blue collar band of survivors who still rock today, and will for another 25 years!

This is a fantastic CD release by the hard rock outfit Tesla titled 'Twisted Wires' & the acoustic sessions.... This CD (12 tracks) features two brilliant brand new tracks, namely "Second Street" & "Better Off Without You" as well as 'the older' 10 songs being a combination of the last recorded (acoustic tracks) with the former guitarist Tommy Skeoch in 2005 & acoustic remakes/versions from their catalogue. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Second Street" (wonderful melody, acoustic guitars & vocals), "Better Off Without You" (beautuful guitar chords, melody & vocals) & "A Lot To Lose" (incredible melody, harmonies/vocals & guitars). Great tracks include "Into The Now", "Hang Tough", "Edison's Medicine", "What You Give" (a slow track with great guitar finger pick-ups & vocals), "Shine Away" (great guitar work & interesting harmonies), "I Love You", "Changes" (great piano & guitar chords combination), "Caught In A Dream" & "Song And Emotion". On overall, Tesla (being known for their brilliant combination of acoustic & electric guitar sounds) will impress you in this CD 'Twisted Wires', a highly recommended CD listening. I was pleasantly surprised at the enjoyment I felt listening to this CD (acoustic tracks). A well deserved 5 star performance!

Buy it...just buy it. Tesla fan or not. This is better than "Signs", just no mega-hit. If you are a die hard Tesla fan from the 80s and 90s, versions of "Hang Tough" , "Into the Now" and "Shine Away" will send shivers up your spine...that good. Jeff Keith's vocals are as awesome as ever. Fan of the band or not you will be impressed. Would like to see some of the supposed big boys of metal produce something like this. They cant do it. Tesla ROCKS.

So you're on a trip driving with your wife and Stinkfist from Tool is on the radio. She says...."isn't there something better we can listen to?" So she starts fumbling with the radio and the next thing you know it lands on the country station. Nooooooo! I can't take 2 1/2 hours of Blake Shelton. So look, pop in this Tesla CD. You get to hum along with some old favorites, and the acoustic versions are not too harsh on your woman's ears. Especially like the acoustic versions of Edison's Medicine and Changes. 4.5 stars. I thought it started to drag a bit towards the end or else it would be a 5.

I've been a big fan of Tesla since I was in high school and recently I've been listening to them again, and picked up a few releases, including this one that I missed. I really like some of the alternate acoustic versions of some of my favorite songs like Hang Tough, Changes, and Shine Away on this album. I typically don't buy greatest hits or compilation albums if I already have all the original albums, but overall I think this is a great compilation, and feels new despite containing only a couple songs I've never heard before. I'm glad to see Tesla still rockin and they also have a new album out...

Some nice versions of some of their biggest hits here done a lil' differently,or acoustically,making this a nice nice addition to anyones Tesla collection. After hearing the version of Into the now on here,it made want to go back and hear the Into the now CD again,and it reminded me of how Great that CD was too! Recommended!

This is one of those albums I knew I would enjoy but was really buying to keep my Tesla collection complete. I thougt I would probably like a few songs every now and than. Even though I was expecting to like it, I was really very pleasently surpised by how much I really dig Twisted Wires. The album as a whole works really well and I'm still excited about Tesla.

Excellent album ...and not all acoustic.
Right up there with Mechanical Resonance and Great Radio Controversy in regards to song quality and hooks start to finish.
They even polish up some of there lesser known songs which just seem to work better with acoustic hooks than their electric counterparts (Into the now & Edison's medicine)
If you got the bonus tracks from Reel to Reel Vol.2 you can hear the genesis for this album (Modern Day Cowboy & Paradise) on the end of that classic laden track

Buy this....now....NOW !

Not as good as FMAJ but good. I'm more likely to listed to this than the source versions - most of the remakes on here sound better than the originals, but I have always had a preference for the acoustic sound.
