Album Review

Tea Leaf Green, a perennial jam band favorite, have outdone themselves on their latest album, Radio Tragedy!. Following their 2010 release, Looking West, Tea Leaf Green have returned to their carefree roots, but have also gone beyond their compositions of the past few years. Not since Taught to Be Proud in 2005 has TLG created an album with such beautiful melodies and such a high level of craftsmanship. What makes Radio Tragedy! their best album yet is the variety of feels, instrumentation, and styles. With the addition of Reed Mathis on bass and Cochrane McMillan playing a second drum set, the band has never sounded crisper or more tender. The first track, "All Washed Up," showcases the funkier side of the band while also leaving room for lead singer Trevor Garrod's vocals to shine through above the sound of the instrumentals. "Fallen Angel" reminds us of the presence of the organ in TLG's music, but then on "Sleep Paralysis," we hear a flute and a mellow acoustic guitar on a heart-wrenchingly beautiful ballad. The song builds slightly with a strong downbeat emphasis on the chorus and ends tastefully just as the message has been conveyed. It is "Germinating," though, that really encapsulates the sound of an outdoor music festival, which is where a band like Tea Leaf Green really shines. It would not be an exaggeration to say that this is Tea Leaf Green's most adventurous and best album to date.

Customer Reviews

Ahhhh....

Tea Leaf Green is by far my favorite band and because of that I support what ever direction or vibe they may be feelin' at this point in their career. I see this album as artistic rather then over-produced. I will admit that live, I may prefer to hear All Washed Up or Fallen Angel over My Oklahoma Home or Arise, though on this album it's probably opposite. Critics, pessimists, Auntie Em, I have news for you, this is not a live album! And you have to expect different things especially with such a cultured and fun band. I think people should understand that Tea Leaf Green worked very hard on this album and improved on a lot of things reagarding their new sound in general. It's not fun doing the same thing every single album and you shouldn't expect the same product when you have a relatively new bassist and drummer. Overall, I'd say this album is filled with absolutely well-written songs (a couple should be on the radio), which have been given intriguing twists and relaxing vibes. Bands evolve and if you don't like it then you aren't a true fan of the band and aren't very understanding of music. Tea Leaf Green is one of the best bands of the last decade and should be respected for the amount of hard work and sacrifice they put in for what little recognition they get back and deserve in music's society.

Sweet Tea!

I get so much from this album. Normally I just like to see these guys play live because I get so caught up in both the frenzy and the fall but this album is so great that I'm going to buy it for my family and friends as well as for myself. I really must share this great piece of art.

I hate to say this but...

...I don't think Josh can sing. :( I love the guy. He's a fantastic guitar player....but he can't sing. His voice is actually grating to me, and when his songs come up on Looking West and this new album, it breaks the whole vibe and flow of the record. Trevor's songs on both are great, but when Josh is singing, it's just....*sigh* Sorry, Josh. Still luv ya.
