"... hypnotic, powerful rage ... an album about assault and violation ..."
- The Vancouver Sun

"... a vessel that steers through the calamity of pain, debt and injustice with unwavering fortitude, never losing sight of an imagined harbour of accord ... the Nunavut-raised throat singer-turned-unintentional punk hero protests a multitude of crises ... Retribution is overdue. This album is a salve for those in waiting."
- The Globe and Mail

"I recommend two ways of listening to (Retribution). One is with eyes closed, given over wholly to the experience of a dense, immersive collection of sounds unlike any sounds on any other albums in your collection. The other is with eyes open, standing in front of a mirror, with one hand on your throat. The former is to better appreciate this record as a shockingly inventive achievement in music production. The latter is to better appreciate the marvel of the human body ... (the songs) encompass terror, rage, ecstasy, adoration and bone-leeching sadness ..."
- NPR

Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq follows up her Polaris Music Prize and Juno Award-winning album Animism with Retribution, a cohesive protest statement about rape: rape of women, rape of the land, rape of children and the despoiling of traditional lands without consent. Rapper Shad joins Tagaq on the hip-hop track Centre, recorded in Nunavut.

"I am always speaking with love, but then something will come out of my mouth that sounds so angry ... through music, I am able to represent life as the whole of what it is, with all of the love and all of the laughter and all the fear, all the anger and all the hatred ... I’ve found a peace and within that peace there is a great amount of anger."
- Tanya Tagaq

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
