Album Review

Blending the plaintive, often reflective sound of post-grunge with a metal edge, Red’s third album, Until We Have Faces, finds the band making its most polished album yet. Owing a lot to the production-heavy sound of bands like Linkin Park, the album has a slick studio sound that helps a band like Red to really shine. Given the breakout success of their last album, it’s clear that Red have spent the two years between 2009’s Innocence & Instinct and Until We Have Faces refining their sound rather than trying to reinvent it. While there’s always a danger of bands going stale, the gamble seems to have paid off here for them, and the album shows a band whose sound is as sweeping and heavy as it’s ever been, making this an album that’s sure to please longtime fans and make an easy convert out of anyone looking for some new post-grunge heaviness.

Just get it, it's epic!!


RED's has got me through the hardest times of my life and this album is no exception... thank you!

Better than I had expected

When I listened to the previews (on the American site first, which, I found out, grants you a minute and a half) I was a bit apprehensive about the album. It's not that I didn't like it, it was just different. There were a few "objective" people, as well as those who dubbed it "mainstream" and likened it to other bands.

Still, I bought it, and as it goes, am glad I did. One of the things I loved from both End of Silence and Innocence and Instinct was the powerful, pounding guitar that had a great deal of sonic density and weight behind it. On the previews I didn't pick up much of that, but upon listening through the whole album, was happy it was still there.
There are some Breaking Benjamin-esque riffs, which people mentioned, especially the prominent riff from Lie to Me (Denial), which I found reminiscent of Fade Away from Dear Agony. (I'd tend to agree with other reviews I've read that this is likely due to the collaboration of the two bands).

It isn't a perfect album, as is any, but I've decided that, if the album is out, the band is happy with it. And if the band is happy with it, they'll keep producing more music. Whether we find some of it more appealing doesn't matter, because if the band itself wasn't happy with the music they were making, or were put off by negative comments, we'd never hear any more from them, which I think would be a shame.

Tracks I was particularly drawn to included Lie to Me (Denial), Buried Beneath, Not Alone, and Who We Are, though I'm sure people will have their own favourites. Again, though there are things I would change about some tracks, it is another solid album from a proficient and passionate band that I certainly hope to hear more of in the future.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Christian-based post-grunge outfit Red first got their start in Pennsylvania playing contemporary Christian covers to area youth groups. They soon grew tired of pop songs, however, and began crafting their own hard-edged rock tunes that often confronted personal issues from their lives. According to lead singer Mike Barnes, the name Red was chosen as a symbol "for the blood of Christ and what it represents: passion, pain, but ultimately, redemption." Comprised of Barnes, Jasen Rauch (guitar), Hayden...
