5.0 out of 5 stars The whole world in a CD.THIS is music. March 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
One thing that immediately comes to my mind whenever I think of the Tea Party is their amalgamation of eastern influence and western roots into one solid,breath-taking,groundbreaking style that quite possibly embodies and defines the very essence of music and sound more than any other band out there.Their entire career is a celebration of the music that we all so adore.The Tea Party's fast-paced tracks and slower,more melodic ballads incorporate a wide array of world-wide instruments and powerful vocal efforts that are unlike anything else out there.And that's a good thing.A VERY good thing.There is not a bit of staleness or redundancy in the band's albums,and nowhere is this more evident then in Tangents,the band's first compilation album.
Tangents bring together the Tea Party's best songs from all their previous albums,the songs that defined their career and immortalized them forever in at least this fan's heart.
Messenger,Release,Bazaar,and Temptation are among the more brilliant tracks in the album,and all are diverse enough from each other to display the wide-ranging styles and different influences that touch upon the band.Their cover of the Stones' 'Paint it Black' can only be discribed as WOW.That word may not be the description of choice used by more respectable and professional critics,but I use it.So there.Not to mention Walking Wounded.The album's sole new song is pure brilliance,a crown jewel that sits atop a polished,spotless work of art.
Import price notwithstanding,this CD is worth every bit of what I spent and then some.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent beginning album December 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
First off, this album is awesome, despite the fact that it's a collection of songs from previous albums. Tangents is a perfect album for those who have only recently discovered The Tea Party. You'll find the very best songs from those albums before, as well as one new track.
If anything buy the album for Walking Wounded, which simply put is a beautiful piece and very much worth the import price. That The Messenger and Heaven Coming Down were included in this album make it even better.
The Tea Party are great for those that like edgy, fast-paced rock music, and melodic, entrancing slower pieces. Their willingness to experiment with different instruments and influences is evident. They are definitely not faltering in their pursuit to keep their sound different and yet distinctly their own. The Eastern influence, especially, found within their songs enhances the music, and never ever sounds out of place.
This album is not just great for those who are only discovering The Tea Party, but for those of us who are already heavy fans. It's a good one to hold us over until they release their new studio album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Canadian rock gods? February 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
In my musical wanderings, I came across Tea Party around the time thier single "Tempatation" was released and having dismissed it as a mediocre canadian rock band the likes of which I come across now and then, I basically let them go and not disturb my sonic aural surroundings.
But one day with some spare cash in my hand and not many CD's left to buy, I saw this complete package and thought I should give it a chance, Hell I like my rock and roll, let's see what this Toronto group can do...
After giving the whole album a listen...Well, my first reaction was of utter surprise and amazement. How in the world can such a band go unnoticed? Surely it isn't only us Canadians who knew the secret. Why hadn't these folks become rock gods in the vein of U2? They arent really comparable to any modern rock band.. With a sound unique to them , they have carved an unusual niche in a rock listener's music collection. My history might be sour on this one, but I think they are the first rock group to blend the exotic eastern music of the Middle east with modern day panache and rock music. Now if that description alone doesn't make you the least bit curious to hear what these guys can do, then ..well...Go on listening to what's on the radio and you just might miss acts like this who define a genre and do their whole schtick so well.
I give this CD 4 stars because I felt more could be explored on the musical territory the group was treading on and production could have been slightly better. Apart from the nit picking things, a must have CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the unreleased tracks, which are excellent! February 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of The Tea Party, but I have all the albums so why would I need a greatest hits package? Then I heard online the first unreleased track, Walking Wounded--it was so excellent, I just had to buy this! I have not been disappointed! All of the best tracks from TP's releases are here, especially from Transmission & Triptych. But I have to say that every unreleased track here has become some more new faves from Tea Party. Waiting On a Sign & Lifeline especially as well as the aforementioned Walking Wounded! An excellent greatest hits package sure not to disappoint anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tea Party Collection April 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is not a "Best Of". This is a collection of singles. It still manages to fall into the category of best music I own. The Tea Party were a very intense and talented group. They wrote songs that nobody else could. They had the musical talent to use more than 30 instruments on The Edges Of Twilight. They have the intensity to make a more industrial sounding album in Transmission. One that, as Jeff Martin has said, almost destroyed him. That is why you get sincere music from this trio. They don't write songs about something they don't know. They don't even write songs about something they haven't experienced in a long time. Jeff Martin wanted to make a dark record so he put himself into a dark place. Or maybe it was the other way around?

I like all of the songs. They are all incredible. I'm not going to bore you by listing the tracks and saying,"I like this one", every time because it's pointless. Just know as you read the background on each track that I say this coming from the perspective of a devoted fan who has never heard a Tea Party song that he didn't like or hasn't had an effect on him in some way. This is a run through of some of the songs in this collection. Either way, you will be surprised and rewarded when you listen to The Tea Party.

Walking Wounded was their most developed track. So much work went into it and the result is unbelievable. It was only released on this collection and as a single.

The Messenger is a song that was written by Daniel Lanois, who has been a producer for U2 on albums including The Joshua Tree. This is one of the only cases in recorded music where I think the cover is better than the original.

Psychopomp. There is so much to say about this song. It was the first Tea song I heard.
