This is just plain old rock at it's finest!!!! A mixture of Aerosmith/zztop/Tesla is what you get with this classic album from a period in which a lot of hard rock bands released their best albums!!!!! Until grunge came along !!!
These guys are still rockin and have released another 3 more albums as that are great as well!!! You need to get this now!!!!!
The band's own mix of melodic hard rock with a Memphis kick is still intact on Wild America, but the album as a whole seems more polished and mature. They sound like a Southern fried Tesla this time around, and that's high praise from me. The title track is far and away the best song on the album. It's a powerhouse rock anthem that's guaranteed to get you pumped up. The ballad As Time Goes By is another highlight. It almost sounds like something accidentally left off Tesla's Psychotic Supper album.
Overall, Wild America comes across as a smarter, but no less fun, version of Surprise Attack. Fans of late 80's and early (pre-grunge) 90's hard rock should find this album well worth checking out.
PS - There's a recorded - but unreleased - third Tora Tora album out there somewhere. The recordings from those sessions sold recently on ebay. Hopefully the album will get a proper CD release someday.
TORA TORA IS A DAMN MYSTERY. IT IS JUST A SHAME THAT THIS BAND WASNT MORE EXPOSED. TORA TORA HAS SOME OF THE BEST VOCALS IN ANTHONY CORDER THAT YOU WILL EVER HEAR FROM ANY BAND PERIOD !

I think this one is better produced than their first record. It's in the same vein also. Some southern rock influences that suits well with my music preferences. Read morePublished 17 months ago by carlos
