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.

Too awesome for words!

Dear Red,
Please tour Canada and show us how to be sexy.

Fantastic album

This is (to me) the best of Red's three albums.
I listened to it non-stop for a week when I got it.
Personally, I think Michael Barnes has stepped it up with his vocals. There's a little more range to his voice, instead of just singing and just screaming, there's a more in between.
Along with their classic "Red" sound (which is still very much used on this album), they also seemed to develop a second style, which is just a bit harsher than their regular stuff. Some examples of this are "Feed the Machine", "Watch You Crawl", and "The Outside".

The guitar work on this album is still fairly similar, though they definitely have more creative guitar on this album than the other two.

The lyrics are awesome and thought provoking. From a call to not follow the world and 'feed the machine', to a melodic reminder that you're 'not alone'.

I've rated this album 5 stars, if it were possible to get 6 stars, it would have given it 6.

Favourite band, favourite album

I first heard red when their song "never be the same" was on radio, and ever since, I've been addicted. This album is my favourite of the three (a close race, though) Because it could appeal to anyone and touches a large variety of paces. So, as an album is merely a collection of songs, I think it's best to review each song.
Feed the Machine: At first, this song was a little too heavy for my liking, but I soon realized red managed to make a heavy song more than bearable; meaningful and awesome. Guitar and strings resound reds music with every beat.
Faceless: An awesome rock song. Though the meaning is somewhat parallel to feed the machine, this song perfectly displays reds growth since their previous albums by taking their casual song formula (verses, chorus, verses, chorus, bridge, chorus) and push the sound of the song to epic proportions.
Lie to me: tied with "mystery of you" for my favourite build-up.
Let it Burn: Awe inspiring meaning which is relatable put to the tune of a semi-rock theme. One of reds best.
Watch you crawl: Though my least favourite on the album, it has a sound of a debatably improved "let go" or "out from under"
The outside: A heavier song about looking back at the world and seeing how bad it really was.
Not alone: One of the slower songs, it touches your heart. Anyone could relate to it as everyone has felt alone or abandoned at one point or another. A song which really does point to Christ. I'm glad red is displaying their faith a little more.
Who we are: best guitar rifts and a good beat. I enjoy listening to this song while walking or exercising.
Best is yet to come: My favourite song of all time. It's deep meaning has personally touched me and the words in this song will reign true for eternity.
Hymn for the missing: A slower song with the perfect, thought-enticing ending for the album.
Buried Beneath: Awesome orchestra. Great rock song with awesome music. Great intro to listen to with speakers on full.

Biography

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...
