Interzone-great intro to the cd this song is cool 4/5
Angels-This is one of tea party single from this cd, it does not sound like a tea party song. this song has more of and mainstream rock vibe to it, but it's a really good song 5/5
Master in magirita- I really like this song, the guitar riffs are a killer in this one, so is the drums. 5/5
Apathy-this song is one of my lest favorite song on the album, to me it doesn't really stand out. 2/5
Soulbreaking-This song is the most emotional song on the cd, Jeff martin recived a mail from a teenage girl and in the letter she wrote that she was being sexual abuse by her father, so jeff martin made this song from that letter dedicating it to her and other women who are going thru the same problem.5/5
lullaby- Ah...another favorite, this song has that gothic vibe to it. everything is good in it, from the drums, bass, and guitar
Must Must- Another great long, catchy song, great drums and guitar. - 5/5
white water siren- This song sound like this old tea party, it has that eastern feeling in it with a little alternertive vibe to it. 4/5
Catharik- One of my favorites on the album, great beat. The guitar work in this song is amazing from the chourus, verse, and the killer solo. The lyrics are very strong in this song. 5/5
Dust to gold- another one of my favorites on this album, great guitar work and lyrics 5/5
Requiem- great guitar work in hear also, great chorus, but sometimes it reapeats a little too much, other than that it's a really great song. 4/5
Mantra- Ah, this song is a killer, it sounds eastern and it has a great vibe to it. Again the guitar work is amazing, also the drums and everything is superb! 5/5
If your a tea party fan this is a must, i think that this is one of their best work. Everything about this album is amazing from top to bottom. TEA PARTY RULEZ!!!!!!!!!!!
But after putting it away for 4 months and taking it out again I realised what a truly great album this is. The entire album comes across as having been written as one big production with chapters rather than the almost "greatest hits" style albums one normally hears in alternative and popular music today. It bucks and sways, slowing down near the end into the laidback Dust to Gold, leading into the soulful Requiem and then building into a massive crescendo with Mantra.
It's one of those addictive CDs you can't get enough of. It's not the same as Splendor Solis or Edges of Twilight, but it's different, not better or worse.
