TRIBE AFTER TRIBE


"M.O.A.B." (Rodeostar; 2008)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Robbi Robb has been fronting the South African band Tribe After Tribe for over two decades, raising awareness of global social issues with his potpourri of multicultural rock music as a soundtrack.

The latest venture from this unit is the 15-track "M.O.A.B.," an album that boasts thirteen different musicians making the most of the vast arsenal of styles at their dispose. From the flannel-shirt stomp of "Holy City Warrior" and "Shock and Awe" to the native sounds emanating from "World Drum" and "Lament," this outspoken collective returns after a lengthy hiatus sounding like a cross between Peter Gabriel and Sepultura, adorned with a well-rounded smattering of hard-edged world class rock that fans of the more adventurous sounds of the 90s are bound to embrace.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
