ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NOVEMBER 2007 - Cassandra Tribe releases her first video, "Ugly Diamonds". Visit her homesite at loveandwords.com to view.


"Cassandra Tribe’s music is like nothing
you’ve ever heard! It’s down tempo electronica
mixed with surrealistic spoken word - and that
doesn’t even begin to explain it!
CassandraTribe is the most original artist
I’ve heard in a very long time."
-Brian Douthit, Eyes of a Poet Radio


A haunting and arresting portfolio of work, the many voices of Cassandra Tribe prompt us beyond just listening to answering.

Sounding like the progeny of Laurie Anderson and Enya, "The Garden of Lost Things" is a complex collage of questions, confessions, revelations and dreams all under the familiar, sorrowful, and terrifying umbrella of loss.

Cassandra Tribe slips in and out of gender with an ease that is unnerving. The presence of male and female, child and adult voices within the work, backed with the syncopated rhythms of jazz, blues, trance and sporadic cries of muezzins weaves a landscape at once familiar and unknown. Listening to these compositions is less an experience of entertainment then one of setting to sea on a journey you have been longing to take.

It is the final track, Ich Bin Nicht, which is most stunning. Commissioned for a memorial for World War II it beautiful and touching and surprising monument to the suffering of Japanese Americans that is eerily timely in light of our recent American tragedies and the state of war we now live in.

Intriguing, haunting and evocative, this CD may very well be the key that leads you into the garden you thought lost forever.

yes definately change my life
I feel guilty because I got the CD as a gift from a friend who got it at a bookstore and I should have been more pc and bought my own here but I wanted to let you know that its good, it hits home even if sometimes I feel like I don't really get it..oh yeah...the german lyrics aren't working - Mal

four Stars
This CD is worth 4 stars as far as I’m concerned. I only give 4 or 5 stars. When I was young my mother said that if you do not have anything good to say then don’t say nothing at all. So, if I buy a CD and I am sorry I did that…my response is to not rate it at all. If I am glad I got it I give it 4 stars. If I am overjoyed that I bought that CD it gets 5 stars.

surprise surprise
I don't know what I'd call this because its not like the spoken word I am used to, this cd rocks in a real quiet strong way..definately a good buy

Jussi Ness

Grows on you, gets in your head
The lyrics are awesome, so's the music, some real low bass in there... it's dreamy, spacey, groovy and trippy.
