Tony Harnell and Ronnie LeTekro et al. are back with a vengeance. From the opening number "Just Like God" the guitars just shred and the vocals soar. Harnell can bring it down an octave when the song calls for it. Deserves an 8.5/10. Strongly recommend.

From: DC Date: August 22, 2001 at 12:20
Not the TNT of old, But worth listening too. These boys can still rock...but if you're looking for "Intuition" this ain't it. 7 outta 10

En este caso sí pienso firmemente que es el mejor disco de TNT. Acojonante en todo, producción, originalidad, interpretación, canciones. No se parece a nada anteriormente escuchado. Es impresionante lo que pueden hacer sin repetirse en ningún disco. No dejo de asombrarme cada vez que lo escucho. Cada canción distinta y todas increíbles. El mejor disco de TNT hasta la fecha, porque estoy seguro que con el siguiente diré lo mismo. No hay nadie parecido a ellos. MAGIA.

From: Jenni Date: September 30, 2002 at 19:04
One of my favorite CD's to sing along to

I always thought this CD got a bad rap. It's really very solid throughout, although as DC says, it's not the TNT of old. Listen to it without thinking "10,000 Lovers" and I think it might just hit the spot for ya. It's kind of like Tony & Ronnie finally realised they don't have to prove their virtuoso abilities on every track of the album and they gte down to just writing good, catchy tunes.

From: dokken6008 Date: December 13, 2002 at 8:54
How many drummers has this band gone through? Like Warrant, I can never get adjusted to a band who fails to keep a regular drummer for more than two years.

From: dokken6008 Date: December 13, 2002 at 8:58
By the way, the cover on this one is perhaps a little disturbing. Bands should work on getting better cover art for their LPs. Most people are much more visual than they should be, so attractive cover artwork is often a priority in getting people to buy your album (besides good distribution). Sad, but true. Most people are dumb asses. How did Limp Dick ever turn into millionaires? Oh yeah, the record execs and their accountants stole all of their money. Fair enough.

From: ROBERT Date: May 14, 2003 at 15:21
Solo lo e escuxao 2 veces, y no esta nada mal, la verdad, ¿como pueden hacer algo mal estos dioses? pero para mi el TELL NO TALES y sobre todo el INTUITION son absolutamente insuperables!!! que grandiosos q sois TONY y RONNIE!!!!

From: dckiss Date: May 25, 2003 at 16:38
I agree with most of the above. This is NOT the TNT of old but it is a good middle ground between firefly and Intuition. Intuition is my favorite album from these guys but this is a very close number too. I think the songs are fresh and new. I don't think its a radical departure from the old stuff. Listen to it for a while and I am sure you will get into it very very catch guitar riffs not to mention Tony is always awesome!!

From: Rycheage Date: July 3, 2003 at 16:18
TNT fans will have to go into this record with an open mind, but if they do, they will discover a band that have taken the best of their melodic past, mixed it with heavy 90's production, guitar and vocal effects and samples - while still largely ignoring the influences that made "Firefly". This album is firmly planted in the 90's, but any disappointment there should be offset with the quality of the songs and the strength in production. This is a very musically intelligent record.

From: Ronnie Date: July 20, 2003 at 4:43
Add You own comments! Rycheage! Your comment is exactly the same as (the first lines of)the review on

From: Stevens Date: July 20, 2003 at 10:37
Ronnie's right. In fact, most of Rycheage's comments are copied and pasted from Andrew's reviews, with a few exceptions of course... Anyway, "Transistor" is a very solid modern rock album, which is much better than the disappointing "Firefly". The melodies are there, but however, don't expect the 80's TNT from "Transistor". You'll find a lot to like about it then.

From: Max Date: February 1, 2004 at 19:26
Rycheage, How about not copying what Andrew at MElodicRock says?

From: TIM (2) Date: May 27, 2004 at 4:20
I don't care about pasting other people's comments, I just care that this was one of the biggest disappointments ever for me. I've bought all their albums because I was hooked on their earlier style, and as good as the songs undoubtedly are, this style doesn't do it for me. I remember being slightly disappointed with "Realised Fantasies", but that didn't prepare me for "Firefly" and this...

From: Albert Date: June 15, 2004 at 12:38
I got very dissapointed with this, you almost can find nothing of the great TNT from intuition and tell no tales here.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 18:13
I have liked most bands attempts at updating their songs, but this one does not seem to be any better than the last album. The melodies take a little longer to get than their other albums, but the songs are not among their best. 5/10

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2004 at 9:19
As I once stated at, TNT fans amaze me most of all. How they cannot like this CD is beyond me. IMO, this is the most consistent (not best, I love them all) release since 'Tell no tales'. All the songs are excellent. 'Mousetrap' is one of my fave ever, the ballads are simply stunning and tracks like 'Wide awake', 'No such thing' and "beacause I love you' are what TNT is all about - killer songs. 'Just like god' is a monster too. Excellent album from an excellent band.

From: howe Date: January 12, 2005 at 7:40
My favorite album from TNT. "Wide Awake", "Fantasia Española", "Because I Love You" and "Into Pieces" are my favorite songs from the band. 9/10

From: R.S.-Rocks Date: February 23, 2005 at 18:12
"Just like god" sucks!! Maybe the worst song they ever did since Tony Harnell came into the band in 1984. The rest is ok but miles behind of "Tell no tales" or "My religion".

From: John Date: February 24, 2005 at 9:24
'Just Like God' doesn't bother me nearly as much as the 'Fantasia Espanola' experiment. I'd rather be cockpunched repeatedly than ever hear that song again. Not a bad TNT record. It did grow on me. Since I love the band I'll be generous and hit them with a solid 8/10.

From: Lovedrive Date: January 6, 2006 at 7:45
No es una maravilla pero tiene sus canciones: WIDE AWAKE y sobretodo FANTASIA ESPAÑOLA (quitando las dos palabrejas que suelta en "castellano"... es mi balada favorita de esta gente)

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 6, 2007 at 15:29
"Wide Awake" represents what this album is all about.Even though the sound on this album is not the real Tnt that we're acostumed to listen but anyway if you are a die hard fan of Tnt (like me)you'll like this effort.7/10

From: happy2849 Date: December 2, 2010 at 12:17
Thought I had struck gold when I found a Promo of this one for $2.00. Don't get me wrong, it's good. There are some nice tracks on this one but I was expecting a little more. I do play it once in awhile but I find myself hitting the skipp button a few times.

From: jondavis Date: August 13, 2011 at 13:28
Ok, I did not like Firefly when I first got it but that one grew on me. Firefly is now my third favorite from TNT. With Transistor I never liked it to begin with. I tried to like it but other then a few songs this cd does nothing for me. I'll give it 60 for the few decent songs.

From: HEAVY PARADISE Date: June 23, 2012 at 12:51
Some brilliant tracks here such as Because I Love You,No Such Thing,Mousetrap & Fantasia Espanola make this effort a must have for every fan of this band!!! Well done....

From: hair metal again Date: June 4, 2018 at 5:00
totally agree with Geoff here,this is an excellent release from an excellent band!Bought it just when it was out and my first impression was very positive ,as it started from where Firefly(maybe my fav along with Intuition) stopped!Once again amazing work by Tony &Ronnie.along with great songwriting !"mousetrap","because i love you",'into pieces" ,"the whole you re inn" are great songs indeed!highly recommended
