Red combines epic rock with massive riffs and passionate vocals,their type of modern rock has been done before but they have added one more thing to make it one size bigger than the common modern rock album - ohyeah,I?m talking about big orchestral arrangements which in some moments almost feels symphonic. The Linkin Park vibes are all over this album except for the rap part,vocalist Mike Barnes sings instead and he truly has a powerful voice that suits the music just fine. "End of Silence" could very well be a motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg coz it sounds like it has been recorded in the biggest studio ever with the most expensive sound team on this planet. Without the strings and the production,the songs are perhaps only worth a 3 star rating. How will they do it live? With samples and a clicktrack or a real orchestra?
The song, Already Over is what started me on the band Red. Ilove everything about the music. its, just... wow
This is one of the best written, produced and executed CDs ever constructed. There are few pieces of work that I can listen from start to finish and start all over again and again and again. You want to come back for more. This is up there with the best albums ever produced. Outstanding!!
It,s an ok album. Highlights are "already over" and "Pieces". As a quality label, i?m mentioning that the album was mixed by Ben Grosse.
