CD REVIEW: Cassie Rose - Wolf's Cry (Single)
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Cassie Rose
Genre: Alternative Rock
CD Review:
'one night dark and black they were on the porch / together when they looked at each other / they heard their eyes cry: / they stepped through the door as time flew by / they were standing: / arms and hands holding tight.' So begins a rather gothic, breathless 3 and a half minute song from alternative girl Cassie. Why breathless? Well, sounds like too many words and not enough notes. But a cool, ballad-type, story song with an ethereal feel shortly unfolds, drawing the reader into Rose's web.

Funny how the whole mood of a song can change with a different orchestration behind it. Where 'Wolf's Cry' comes over as spooky and spacey, when the acoustic version begins, it's obviously alternative rock, and it's like turning on the sunlight in the woods.

The rest of the 15 minute cd are snippets of other Cassie (and Rubin Groove) songs, plus a personal thanks for listening. Rubin's 'One Day' is a trippy little teaser with a piano behind it, and makes this one a group to listen for.
