I first heard Tea Party back in '94 when some early hours TV prog featured a vid of the band performing Save Me. I was knocked out and went for this album straight away. I couldn't believe my ears. In a world of spindly indie Brit pack brat crap and sugar coated US AOR, I had stumbled upon an undiscovered MOUNTAIN of a band. Think of Led Zepp in their prime, blend with the foothills of the Himalayas and an army of Genghis Khans led by Terry the Incredibly Terrible and you just might get my drift.
I went to the Marquee some months later to see them live and was totally convinced that I was looking at the finest rock band ever to walk the planet - and for someone who grew up watching Led Zepp, The Who and Jethro Tull in the early to mid seventies, I have to say this came as something of a 1994 surprise! Jeff Martin, not only blessed with looks that blended Che Guevara and Jim Morrisson, played guitar some way between Jimmy Page and John Mclaughlin - tripled to a voice powerful enough to kill lost souls in the dance tent at Glastonbury - from the main stage!
Back to the album: it just grows and grows and keeps on growing. Read the martyn4 review for great insight - but I will add that the final two tracks, effectively an acoustic intro that meanders path like up that mountain to finally reveal a hidden volcano, erupts an awesome, beautiful lava into every miniscule of heart and soul. Backed by an as good as it gets rhythm section in Jeff Burrows and Stuart Chatwood, and a catalogue of sublime albums that only have the Smashing Pumpkins to compete with in terms of consistent top of the class delivery and there you have it - the ones that got away or even the land that time never really knew. And why was that? Spindly indie Brit pack brat crap and sugar coated US AOR - lapped up by the homogenised, media-riddled numbskulls that masquerade as the youth of today. Missing out? Missing everything if you don't own this catalogue of genius.

Want to improve your life? Buy this CD. Then, when it's captured your soul, buy all the other Tea Party albums in correct chronological order (so you can follow their progression) and listen to them too. When I first heard this music, I fell in love. Anybody who has ever fallen in love recognises the sheer intensity of the emotions and that is exactly what this music evokes. When you hear JM singing 'In this time', you have enough love in your heart to heal the woes of the world. Just thinking about JM's voice is making me melt.... This is, quite simply, the most spiritual music ever produced.

All I can say abiut this Album is that it is hugely underrated. This is one of the greatest albums EVER!! The Tea Party blend eastern and cletic sounds and add some great rocking rythums (a la Led Zepplin) and beautiful melodies and you are as close to perfection as you can get for £16!! It is such a shame that this album and all the bands other discs are deleted, and only on import, because not everyone can get a chance to sample this great band. Lead singer and Vocalist (song writer and producer to boot) Jeff Martin is a modern day genius, songs like Midsummer's Day A Certain Slant of light, In This Timeand Dreams of Reason showcase the bands song crafting abilities to the full, semi-acoustic haunting songs full of soul and emotion, the epic Save Me is the anthem that all those lonely hearts out there, and the haunting vocals of Jeff Martin add so much to these masterpieces picture Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees) singing for Counting Crows covering Blind Melon and Afahan Whigs and you get an idea of The Tea Party. Jeff's production and Guitars are top drawer!! as are the rythum section ofJeff Burrows and Stuart Chatwood with thier tribalistic beats. But it is not all ballads here no way!! Rocking tracks such as The River, Sun Going Down and Raven skies will please any seasoned rocker, I myself like the likes of Fear Factory, Sepultura and the like but the Tea Party are one of the best bands ever. If you are a fan of Led Zepplin and their ilk then you will feel right at home here, this album might not be for everyone but i'm not everyone, GET THIS ALBUM RIGHT NOW DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and save your music collection.
