5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.

3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

  • Perfectly highlights what 25 years and 12 releases means



  • Some things are worth the wait. Such is the case with newly released live dvd from seminal rockers Tesla. As the first live dvd in 17 years and the first ever "plugged in" dvd from the band this release perfectly highlights what 25 years and 12 releases means---Tesla is committed to bringing the show to an entirely new level.

    Now managing themselves, the band has put together a riveting and true to reality production of what an authentic Tesla show is all about- pure energy, stripped down rock and roll.

    Filled with over two hours of live music, an hour of special behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen material, including footage of Tesla interacting with fans, giving viewers a personal tour of Seattle, and an up-close look at their touring equipment and guitars, the Comin' Atcha Live! DVD manages to accomplish making a tried and true fan feel like they are at a show they missed and anyone who is new to the band, wonder where they have been all of their lives.

    The DVD was filmed at the Myth Nightclub in Maplewood, Minnesota on February 22. At the sold-out show, Tesla brought out all of the famed classics such as "What You Give," "Signs," "Modern Day Cowboy," "Love Song" and "Little Suzi" and the world premiere of "Dear Pvt. Ledbetter," from the forthcoming new cd, "Forever More".

    Highlights include Dave Rude, the newest member to the band, more than capably filling the gap left by the departure of Tommy Skeoch, and giving the band renewed vigor and the underrated but remarkable Troy Luccketta on drums.

    Jeff Keith (vocals), Frank Hannon (guitars), Brian Wheat (bass) are all on top of their game making this release a must have and gets any true head banger's appetite whet
    for the "Forever More" cd, tour and the next show.

    If this DVD only touches the real thing? Go to stubhub now and try for the front row.
