"The Great Radio Controversy"...

...was probably also Tesla looking to diversify and not do "Mechanical Resonance" all over again - all credit to them for that.

Looking at the song list for "TGRC", it immediately strikes me that the songs I like the best - "Hang Tough", "Heaven's Trail", "Makin' Magic", "Paradise" and "Party's Over" - are also the ones that resemble the material from the debut the most. Others of course latched on to the likes of "Love Song", a tune which somehow never resonated much with me, despite being rather pleasant...

I agree with those of you who figure that "TGRC" was too long, though: Some of the songs were even fairly lengthy, and having thirteen of the buggers spread the good moments a little too thin - again in my humble opinion, mind you. ;-)

"MR", despite a couple of songs that stretched out a bit, is more to the point and ...well, fresher to these ears, for lack of a better description! Those liking "TGRC" and tracking back from that might on the other hand perceive "MR" as more primitive and one-dimensional, I suppose.

Thankfully, there's no definitive answer as to which album is the better one - I guess that's the beauty of personal taste in music and everyone's right while at it! :-)
