The Best of Tea Party
Brez Edmunds | 03/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've noticed over the years since I first bought this CD, people have bad mouthed Tea Party to no end. I never understood why because this is the only album of their's that I have ever owned.. and come to think of it, it's quite odd I never bought another since I love this one so much - I'll blame it on the fact that I love this CD so much that I wouldn't want to ruin my view of Tea Party by listening to something of lesser quality.

Truth is, every single song on this album is constructed and produced in such a way, that even with its rough and industrial-like sound, its extremely catchy. The one aspect that really did it for me though is the influence of Middle Eastern music. They pull it off so well (...also listen to songs 'Awake Sister (Remix)' and 'Walking Wounded'). It's an incredible blend of melancholy rock music, industrial rhythm and world music.

Ignore the critics, and the bad-mouths...This album is so far before its time, that people just don't understand it. Do not start at the beginning of their career, and do not get their greatest hits album (Tangents). To experience Tea Party at their best (and truly best) simply buy Transmission. From beginning to end, it's a rock classic."
One of their top 2 albums

""Edges of Twilight" being the other. Very underrated band where I'm from. Their Led Zeppelin influence shows heavily in their use of blues and Eastern music (Jim Morrison seems to be an influence the the lead singer, as well). They also have an industrial sort of edge, though nothing like NIN. They mix those together very well to form a sound that's unique.

This album doesn't just hold a bunch of songs that are all the same either. Each song has a different feel and presentation. Very well done and easily as listenable now as when I first heard this album years ago."
