Album Review

It takes a lot of chutzpah for a band like the Redwalls to write a tune whose chorus is built around the line "they say its all been done before," since even the group's most loyal adherents will acknowledge they don't have an original bone in their collective body, having lifted their sound and style from several dozen cherished bands of the '60s and '70s. On The Redwalls, the opener "Hangman" could pass for the Faces in dim light, "Put Us Down" is pure British Invasion-era pop, "Game of Love" recalls the grand scale angst of the Walker Brothers, the slightly woozy psychedelic accents of "Into the Maelstrom" owe more than a bit to the Creation, and "Little Sister" recalls Buffalo Springfield's more navel-gazing moments. But as someone once said, "mediocre artists borrow, great artists steal," and while calling the Redwalls' self-titled third album "great" is going a bit far, the Chicago-based quartet certainly know how to build a catchy and solidly rocking disc out of the bits and pieces they've gleaned from their favorite bands. Bounced from a brief association with a major label, the Redwalls recorded album number three in Sweden with producer Tore Johansson (who previously worked with the Cardigans, OK Go, and Franz Ferdinand), and the results put a slightly more contemporary sheen on this band's retro style, at least moving them into the '90s with some Brit-pop accents on songs like " "Modern Diet" and "Summer Romance" (then again, they have also come from touring with Oasis in 2005). Listening to The Redwalls, you might get the feeling you've heard some of this stuff before, but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy its swagger and spirit.

Customer Reviews

immediate sound, immediate truth, immediate fan.

As a guy who as of two months ago had never heard of The Redwalls,  it took no more than one song to convince me that this is a band who owns that indefinable quality of a true rock band.  Comparisons aside, you feel that a path has been extended, another corner turned and the familiar but rare excitement of discovery.  Turns of melodic discourse wind you freely through veins of harmony sang with crushing solidity.  Songs that hold no punches but never fall to irreverence.  The Redwalls have brought their song writing to a new level, reaching past their influences with a strolling tip of the hat.  Climb up and take a listen to some of the best new music in a long long time.  And if you need any more convincing, simply go and see them live.


Listen guys, this album is fine, but really? Talk about leaving fans wanting more. I understand as bands evolve, they need to broaden the scope of the audience, and this is a commercially viable album no doubt about it, but what happen to the lo-fi, hi-quality classic rock style we saw on the most perfect album of this century, Universal Blues? Please make another cd soon. And don't forget your true fans, or your roots. 4 stars simply for the aptly name "You Can't Forget Yourself", the one true musical representation of the Redwalls we all know and love.

The Redwalls

There are so many things I can say about this album. From the raw, bluesy opening track to the epic conclusion, this album should grab some attention this year. If it doesn't, well, that is just a shame. The Redwalls put out a good mix of gritty rock n' roll songs, as well as some soulful ballads. The best way to experience The Redwalls is live, but this album does a pretty good job of capturing their on-stage presence. Alot better than DeNova did anyways. Maybe more bands should record in Sweden.
