Tesla went and isolated themselves for weeks at co-producer/A&R man Tom Zutaut’s 150-acre ranch deep in the woods of Virginia where they culled their hearts and minds for the songs that make up ‘Simplicity’. It is everything that resides in their imaginations and takes inventory of the band’s current state. Deep and emotional, powerful yet melodic, it is Tesla.

They take on the ups and downs of life as they always have and created another genius pure rock album. What was noticed was the bands masterful use of tempo and timing changes as has always been a staple of Tesla. Opening track “MP3” jumps right out and reminds you of all that made Tesla one of the biggest names in rock. You hear the sound of a needle drop on vinyl, those rich distorted guitars jump right in, and you know that the band hasn’t missed a beat or lost their hunger to make awesome rock music.

Most of you have heard the first track “So Divine…” already (see attached video) so the music has already started to do the talking. Rest assured that the band has all of the sweet melodic guitar picking with wicked, ripping leads all over this album.

For a guy that wore out a few Tesla CDs over the years, “Simplicity” holds up with all of them. Deep slower power greets you on “Rise and Fall” (track3) while “Ricochet” (track 2) has some nice aggressive styling to it as only Tesla can do. The band has some stand out old-school straight-up Rock & Roll with songs like “Cross My Heart” and sprinkle in so many sounds and tempo changes that you will rock out, stomp your feet, and snap your fingers as Tesla yet again blows you away. Not only is “Simplicity” new music by Tesla, it may be some of the best stuff they have recorded.
