5 stars Take Jim Morrison, put him in front of Led Zeppelin, and stick them in an isolation tank full of bong smoke and early 1990s goth albums and you might end up with something resembling The Tea Party's The Edges of Twilight. Although they don't sound very similar, I kind of think of this crew as being a bit like a Canadian answer to early Porcupine Tree, in the sense that in both cases the artists in question apply some of the production styles and motifs of 1990s indie/alternative rock to a progressive rock agenda, though they are rapidly distinguished from each other by their choice of influences. Porcupine Tree mashed up trippy psychedelia with aspects of trance music and jangle-guitared British indie pop, whereas The Tea Party take the most progressive moments of the Doors and Zep, taken the progginess a few steps further, and give them a Sisters of Mercy sort of aesthetic. It's a weird, weird plan, but somehow it works.
Warthur | 5/5 |
