iTunes Review

The hard-hitting Nashville outfit follow-up the successful Until We Have Faces with Release the Panic. Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Bon Jovi), the new album pits their melodic sensibilities against passionate aggression and the results are glorious on "Perfect Life." Here vocalist Mike Barnes rages against false hopes and dreams with a stinging clarity. The full-length album is available to pre-order now.

Customer Reviews

Production but no passion.

To everyone from the fans to the band: what's wrong with you? This album is the worst Red album, but I'm not about to throw the baby out with the bath water. So it sounds poppy. Don't buy it of you don't like it!

This really isn't for me. Just felt like random writing with plenty of production but no passion. Like they "had" to write another album or something.

I'm sure they wanted to try a new sound. So what? It's not for everybody just like the old stuff wasn't for everybody. Give em a break. Let's see you write 4 consecutive albums and each one be über successful and musically flawless. If they did the same thing every time, each album would sound the same, like (sorry to say this my fellow head bangers) just about every metal band out there.

But these guys aren't "metal". They're more like an experimental rock band. And yes this experiment failed. But geez, cut em some slack!


This looks like it will be their best album. Red is awesome. Love this album's artwork!

Identity Crisis

I'm a big fan of Red and have been since the release of End of Silence. I've never rated a Red album below 4 stars and two of the past three have been 5 stars. Though there are a handful of good songs on here I feel like they're losing or changing their identity that I loved. The emotion, for the most part, has changed to a more mainstream 'new skillet, new three days grace' kind of sound. Worth the buy and Most Red fans will still rate 5 stars just because it's Red. This is just an honest review from a big Red fan.


Formed: 2004 in Nashville, TN

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...
