Supposedly this was their straight-ahead rock album. I hoped they’d gotten it out of their system, because while this would be a great album for most any other band, for the Tea Party it almost seems like a lackluster effort. The songs are good but not great. Only one, Luxuria, comes close in quality to anything they’ve done prior. The rest of it, especially the Bob Rock produced songs are too commercial and sound like everyone else out there. He ruined Metallica and Our Lady Peace, and he kinda ruined the tracks from this fine band too. Finally, Jeff Martin’s lyrics seem to have gone to the repetition school of writing, sometimes only having one verse get repeated two or three times. After all that, I like the album, but I don’t think I’ll ever love it. Much like Metallica’s later stuff, what would be great for anyone else is only so-so for the Tea Party.
