||Quiet Table CD (1999) |
Robbi Robb albums Usually, Three Fish is viewed as the side project of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, but it's more accurate to view it as a collaboration between three musicians, spearheaded by South African singer/songwriter Robbie Robb. He has a distinctive style, typified by a yearning, searching mysticism in both his lyrics and music. It's apparent in the long, spacy jams or the surging blasts of anthemic rock. Everything on The Quiet Table -- an album allegedly inspired by a trip to Egypt -- has a bit of a mystical vibe, and while it can seem a little turgid at times, it's an ambitious project that often pays off in intriguing songs and evocative sonic textures. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Robbi Robb CD discography All songs written by Robbi Robb except "Ice Below" (Robbi Robb/Barry Schneider), "Dance Of The Wu Li Masters" (Robbi Robb/Chris Frazier) and "World Of Promise" (Robbi Robb/Bruce Williams).
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

||Livin' Ain't Easy CD (1989) |
Robbi Robb songs One of the criticisms occasionally leveled at Walking Wounded, the band that Jerry Giddens fronted on and off for almost two decades, is the band let politics dominate their songs. However true that is, it's certainly no problem with Giddens' solo work. Livin' Ain't Easy is an album of character sketches, personal songs, ...
