Album Review

Originally released in small quantities in 2003, Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses was the debut EP by the New Jersey post-hardcore outfit the Number Twelve Looks Like You. Reissued in 2006 by ECA after the band's profile was considerably raised, the long EP sounds in retrospect like the blueprint for their somewhat experimental form of grindcore.

Strictly for fans of the style, but certainly worth a listen for anyone who came to the Number Twelve Looks Like You later in their career.
