Fan Reviews
The Tea Party - TRIPtych
 By: Stephen Jordan

“TRIPtych” by the Tea Party is the latest release from the immensely talented Canadian trio. It is composed of 12 songs which are fairly melodic and soft compared to their previous album, “Transmission”. The first single in Canada is “Heaven Coming Down” while the song “Touch” is the first single in Austrailia. 

“Heaven Coming Down” is a pure joy to listen to with its melodic chorus and the amazing vocals of lead singer Jeff Martin. Also, the drums on the song really carry the beat of the song. The song reached #1 on the ‘Much Music Countdown’ recently. Much Music is basically Canada’s version of MTV in the United States.  The first song on the album is “Touch”. It has a very strong intro with an industrial groove that only The Tea Party can produce. The band also delivers with great acoustic numbers such as “The Messenger” and “Gone”. The latter is one of the best compositions on the album with a haunted acoustic feel to it. It  features other stringed instruments such as the violin and cello.  Other great songs on the album are “Chimera” with a fresh, guitar driven chorus section, and “Slight Attack” which instantly reminds fans of the band’s album, “Transmission”. The song has the industrial, synthesized sounds of a lot of the band’s songs.  “The Tea Party” is known for mixing electric guitars, drums, many native and foreign instruments, and the artificial sounds of synthesizers, etc. Their sound is unique, and they are all very talented musicians. Lead singer Jeff Martin, drummer Jeff Burrows, and bassist/keyboardist Stuart Chatwood gel together to make the music they want, with no compromises. Martin’s poetic, sometimes romantic lyrics are superb. The Tea Party’s hardest album would be “Transmission”,which I enjoy greatly and “TRIPtych” is probably their softest album. It has a calming effect and is somewhat of a happier mood for the band in contrast to the deep, dark “Transmission”. “TRIPtych” is a great album to get and probably their best album to date. However, some people, I believe, may enjoy the hard-rock sound of “Transmission” more.
