With high quality production, well-written grunge/indie/glam rock songs too sing along to, Tribes' debut album 'Baby' is a mixture of these different styles, and was a sign of good things to come. It's an ambitious record, but an absolutely brilliant one. This young guitar band, with Johnny Lloyd as vocalist and guitar player, never made the big impact they should have done. Their second album 'Wish To Scream' only peaked in the charts at no.45 last year, whilst having to compete against a lot of manufactured pop rubbish. 'Baby' did better though, and briefly dented the top 20.
It's hard for me to pick out a favourite song from this album, as I tend to have a different 'stand out' track each time I play it. Nevertheless, I'd say 'Sappho' and 'We Were Children' take some beating.
Loaded with raw energy and reminiscent of the music all the great bands that were around in the '90s were making, Tribes continued the tradition of giving us quality British music. The high energy songs on here will appeal to many people, and at least four them are almost guaranteed to stick in your mind after just a couple of listens - now that's good music.
