    quality rock

    Tesla are a outstanding rock outfit, this ablum has some of Tesla best songs on it probable their most commercial without losing any of their souls over it. Paradise, Be a man, Love song, Hang tough songs you'll be listening to forever. a couple of the others dont match up to these but still a must for good honest rock
