Angel

by Cassandra Tribe

Performance Poetry at its best, she reads like Anne Sexton and writes like Edgar Allen Poe, \"Angel\" is Tribe without her usual music and special effects and her performance ability is a revelation. This is how poetry is supposed to sound.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"What\'s your Tribe? The one who speaks the words of longing you didn\'t even know existed inside you, or the one that scares the pants off you with the mirror that she holds up that reveals your dark potential. Just perfect...\"(James Duckworth)


\"Put your hand out, let Cassandra Tribe walk you though this journey. She will be your reflection on this trip to reality. “Angel,” Tribe’s new collection of poetry explores the human condition, from the painful ebb and flow of love to the uncertainty of living in a world where “Our poets are silent/Our singers drunk.”

Tribe, spoken word artist and self-described philosopher, lends her audience a didactic and Humanistic view of the world, whether it is through her poetry, essays or her daily blog. One stand-out poem by Tribe, the epic-length “Monster,” urges readers to face the harsh reality that comes with being irresponsible in life—the false gods and monsters created by blind acceptance\" (Vagner Revol, Poet Tree Magazine)

\"Bees\" reveals the longing we cannot speak of, but it is \"Angel\" that reveals what is longed for.\" (Alistair Wyzckowski, New Performance)


“Angel” , the third CD from Cassandra Tribe, is a work of art. She leaves behind the music and effects that are the hallmarks of her earlier cds and videos to stand alone before the microphone. The result is compelling, disturbing, exquisite and an absolute confirmation of the genius of her talent as a writer and performer. Stripped of everything her words are the stones and bones of life. Tribe has been compared to Anne Sexton and Edgar Allen Poe yet these comparisons do not even come close to describing her unique talent. The content alone, the manner in which she writes of love and hope and forgiveness reveals a mind that thinks far beyond what is easy and accepted. Her performance style can only have come from a life that is lived with a fullness of presence, and every word, every sound she utters is so full the listener feels as if they are being served a kind of food that will never leave them hungry again.

Spoken word album full of both intensity and tranquility
"Angel" by Cassandra Tribe is a deep and intellectual spoken word EP that is filled with precise imagery and a tone that is tense and revealing. It is not just Cassandra’s words that create the journey; it is her delivery, pacing, and tranquil voice that really rounds out the concept. She plays on silence in a way that keeps you longing for the next line and hanging on every word. This is Cassandra's third CD and the concept of this album is a stripped down work of art. You hear nothing but her voice on this one, a bold statement considering music and effects were a big part of her previous releases. There is a build as the journey unfolds when the album opens with the whispery "The Dark Flower of Hope (Part 1)," a reflection of wasted life. "Monster" deals with more irresponsibility, this time in the area of false gods. "The Dreams of Bees" brings forth tremendous power and intensity as Cassandra brings forth the most vivid of frustrations. If you enjoy rich, well performed poetry, you will enjoy “Angel.”
