The second album for the Los Angeles-via-South Africa trio Tribe After Tribe is not much of a departure from their debut. A bit more self-assured and mature, perhaps, but still the same alluring blend of African influences and '90s grunge rock. Not that this is a bad thing. The music is hypnotic and heartfelt as on the tribal rhythm of "Ice Below." The choir-like intro to "The Spell" doesn't really work, but most everything else does (like the blues colorings of the same song). "Dance of the Wu Li Masters" has a percolating, percussive groove, although the grinding guitars threaten to overwhelm it at moments. The rest of the album is a fine mix of moody ballads ("Congo Sky," "In the Face of the Sun") and churning guitar rock ("World of Promise," "Delight"), closing with the arresting song suite "The Lovers." ~ Tom Demalon
