(**Special note: Although the name can be misleading, this album has nothing to do with The Twilight Saga.)
The Edges of Twilight was the third release from the late Canadian rock band The Tea Party. While the initial sound of this album has deep roots in psychedelic and blues rock, it also has a worldly, middle-eastern feel. The album starts off heavy with Fire in the Head, which features a metal-esque onslaught of distorted guitars. To be honest, I tend to skip this track while listening to the full album because it isn’t as melodic or adventurous as the rest of the album.
Next on the track list is The Bazaar, which is the epitome of The Tea Party’s sound during this era; a fusion of middle-eastern and psychedelic rock. This song starts off with a gloomy bass line accented with the gentle hum of a harmonium, before bursting into a fast-paced rock riff to introduce Jeff Martin’s vocals. This song is also a single and they made a music video for it (see below).
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a new album to add to your collection, The Edges of Twilight is definitely worth looking into if you enjoy a little diversity.
