This is an all-around great buy!

Tea Leaf Green made a great record and while I was familiar with some of their previous record, this one is a crowning accomplishment.

I bought this after I heard "Easy to be Your Lover" a few times and really, really liked it (and I was surprised that it was TLG).

"Radio Tragedy" is Tea Leaf Green's finest, most fully realized studio album to date. I would go as far as to say it is a new classic, a thoughtful and carefully honed portrait of a band whose music and style defies a single description. Their songbook includes compositions which can be categorized as classic rock, jammy rock, lyrical ballads, country, punk, hardcore, funk, jazz and rap. Simply put, they're a rock band with a wide range of influences and a strong lyrical side.

I didn't have high opinions of the last two studio albums; my criticism had been that they were "over-produced" but after listening to "Radio Tragedy!" for the first time, I realized that it wasn't that they were over-produced, but that they just weren't produced very well.

This album definitely sounds like something created in a studio, not on a stage, but to someone like me who normally prefers a live performance to a studio production, the result is extremely pleasing and captivating. Some songs sound very little like the live versions, and yet somehow sound much more like what they were meant to be. Several of the selections are ones I haven't cared for much live; on the album, these tracks are among my favorites. Some of the effects might be startling at first, both to long-time fans and others who have a fixed aural picture of what TLG sounds like, for instance the Bee-Gee-esque falsettos on "Easy to Be Your Lover"; given a second listen and a loss of expectations, these tunes shine all the brighter. This is not a band wedged into a certain style or method. It's a group of talented musicians who can and do experiment to produce captivating sounds in different ways, both on stage and in the studio.

As someone who has seen Tea Leaf Green live many times I've always a little disappointed at the way studio recordings failed to capture the energy and spirit of this rockin' band of truly talented musicians. There is no doubt that Tea Leaf Green is influenced by myriad musicians and genres, and there is no other recording that exemplifies that more than this one here. Finally!
Radio Tragedy! is a real accomplishment for these guys. The album makes me and my entire family feel so good (and sometimes "good" means a little nostalgic, even melancholy).
I'm an L.A. girl, so "Cottonwood Tree" has a special place in my heart. Josh's vocals are full of emotion that's perfect for this tune.
Trevor Garrod visits a new realm of vocal sweetness in "Easy to Be Your Lover."
"My Oklahoma Home" is an obvious celebration of bassist Reed Mathis' contribution to the band in the last few years. This is my father-in-law's favorite.
My two-and-a-half-year old son cannot get enough of "Honey Bee." The visual provided by an animated video (by Clark) doesn't hurt. It's clever and fun. Check it out on YouTube.
Honestly, I'm blown away by the strength of this entire album. All songs can stand alone, but they lead perfectly into one another.

Oh, and one other thing-- buy the CD if only for the art and creative, tiny insert. The lyrics appear as an actual comic book insert. All art by Josh Clark.

This is an all-around great buy!

I have had a really mixed reaction to Tea Leaf Green. I haven't seen them live, but their live recordings are pretty good, and they have a good reputation for live jam-band performances.

But their past studio releases have been really hit-and-miss; a good song here and there , and a lot of just so-so stuff that maybe they can do better stretched-out live but you really can't tell (and don't care).

I bought this after I heard "Easy to be Your Lover" a few times and really, really liked it (and I was surprised that it was TLG). I was prepared, though, for a CD where you wind up cutting back to the same song several times and then set it in a pile because nothing else you hear is nearly that good.

This CD is great from start to finish, just great stuff, and now I want to see (or hear) how they do with these songs live. This is by far the best studio release, start-to-finish that they have produced. This is worthy of a listen by anyone that just really likes good music - period
