Coming fresh off their 2000 career retrospective, Tangents, Canadian mystic rockers the Tea Party storm into the second phase of their career with The Interzone Mantras. In all honesty, it differs very little from the first phase. Longtime fans of the band's unique (at least for contemporary times) amalgamation of Led Zeppelin-esque musical power and guitar pomposity, Doors-like grandiose and occasionally pretentious lyrics (complete with Jim Morrison look- and sound-alike lead singer, Jeff Martin), all buffed up to a shine in modern production gloss will find much to admire with the latest release. As with previous releases, the band has composed a few stellar singles (the creepy mid-tempo rocker "Lullaby," the meditative "Angels") that manage to sound equally at home on classic or alternative rock radio. What is surprising, though, is that virtually all the remaining tracks are as equally cohesive and well-crafted. In fact, The Interzone Mantras is arguably their most consistent album. That being said, listeners who have never been seduced by the charms of the Tea Party will likely not change their opinion with the latest release, and casual fans are still best served by Tangents. However, the album is sure to please long-term fans and captures the sound and energy of a band obviously still enjoying their craft. As with Lenny Kravitz albums, it's easy (and sometimes frustrating) to play "spot-the-influences" ("White Water Siren is Led Zeppelin's "Friends"; "Must Must" is "Kashmir"), but the band manages to put enough of a modern spin on them that they end up sounding more like respectful nods to their influences rather than slavish imitations. The Tea Party may have found a comfortable niche entering their second decade together, but with The Interzone Mantras, they are certainly not resting on their laurels.

10 Legends of the Blues

For over a century, blues is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

The Past, Present and Future of Black Country Artists

For decades, country music has been largely shut off to Black artists. There have been notable, even iconic, exceptions throughout history, of course. But there are too few of those, to the point that their success was often treated as novelty. There were also too many performers who should have made it big but were forced into stereotypes that didn't comfortably fit. Fortunately, there have been signs of hope in the past few years—hope that feels like a lot more than just good intentions and lip service. This tribute explores the history, and promising future, of Black artists in country music.

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.
