Like Led Zeppelin some 25 years ago, the Tea Party draw from a wealth of influences and cultures to create a sound uniquely their own, exotic and earthy, with neo-progressive flourishes and Middle Eastern-sounding melodies. On The Edges of Twilight they start off with a hefty punch of finely crafted, hypnotic hard rock, and then ease the listener into a world where piano ballads, the blues, and hypnotic, sitar-laden meditations seem to fit together perfectly.
From gorgeous acoustic instrumentals to jarring teeth-rattlers, the Tea Party prove unusually adept at everything they try. Sure, they are essentially an FM rock band, having more in common with Alice in Chains and Queensryche than they may care to admit, but they have far more talent and depth than many of their rather one-dimensional contemporaries. It's this versatility and wealth of quality material that separate them from the pack. --Adem Tepedelen

How in God's name can this be the only Tea Party CD that is out of print. It's the best thing they ever did.Published on October 17, 2011 by R. Rolwing
Edges Of Twilight is an even more complex and unparalled release from the Tea Party. Splendor Solis was amazing, this album is even better and explores more blues style songs done... Read morePublished on April 22, 2008 by Deimos
