Album Notes
Mike Kovacs and the Post-Modern Tribe are one of the most original pop bands out on the scene today. With a world full of plastic music where lyrical content and musical ability have about as much value as Stravinsky at a Brittany Spears concert, his music carries passion and a respect for the craft of songwriting that has become very rare these days. Combining his classical composition training at Rutgers University with being in rock, pop, metal, and folk bands for years, Mike Kovacs combines it all together into a unique sound that follows in the tradition of Bob Mould, indigo girls, Elvis Costello, REM, and many others. His unique use of alternate guitar tunings and cello arrangements, as well as passionate lyrics, place his music in a place all their own.
"...always excellent singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Kovacs out does all previous efforts on this direct from the heart pop friendly folk rock that features the emotionally torn "Chemical Therapy". Al Muser Aquarian Arts Weekly April 2003

Real, honest music
There are many vibrantly wonderful things about this CD: The great cello parts, the obvious knowledge of music and musicality, those beautiful backup vocals, and the list goes on! But, the best thing about this CD is that everything is real. There are no facades in the music, so the listener can easily connect with what is being expressed. And, you can tell that the vocalist truly means what he is singing. It is a great CD to listen to when happy, sad or just hanging out. That's why it deserves all 5 stars.

Intense, original pop rock
This is much more of a pop rock album than Mike's earlier material and I miss the dark acoustic instrumentals that originally made me fall in love with his music. At the same time, this album has some amazing material of its own. Bring me down is a funky blues with a nice hard kick to it. Chemical Therapy is a beautifully somber piece about a friend with cancer. Mystical Rose blows me away as a rhythmic tour de force. The guitar, bass, drums, and cello each play their own role in driving the song and the African rhythm is beyond intense. My favorite track, however, is 3:59 AM, an instrumental reflection on death and the departed. The guitar solo is unreal, meditative and restrained, building tension until it explodes at the last possible moment. It leads beautifully into Deliver Me, a solo return to his roots.
