iTunes Review

On its fourth album, Red ups the melodic quotient in its music without sacrificing the hard rock aggression fans have come to expect. This time out, the grinding intensity and spiritual desperation that have characterized the Christian quartet’s work are tempered by a broader artistic vision. With the aid of producer Howard Benson (P.O.D., My Chemical Romance, Skillet), Red stretches out to embrace soaring balladry (“Hold Me Now,” “So Far Away”) and galvanizing shout-along pop (“Same Disease”). There’s a new crispness to Release the Panic’s rhythms, heard in the hard-pumping grooves of “Die for You” and the propulsive dynamics of “If We Only.” Frontman Michael Barnes leans toward the clean side of his singing prowess, though tracks like “Damage” and the title track find his larynx-mauling growl in fine shape as well. The struggle to know God amid the corruption of modern life remains Red’s lyrical focus—“Perfect Life” (a stinging rejection of materialist culture) and “The Moment We Come Alive” (a plea for salvation in a crumbling world) testify to the band’s undiminished faith and its road-seasoned sense of craft.

They Sound Fine

I literally do not understand why people are complaining so much. I think Red sounds just as amazing as ever.


They just dont sound the same. I think after the last album they will Never Be The Same. Its as if the band members changed after the last album. "Until We Have Faces" Was ok for me, but its the first time i didnt buy the whole album. This CD i wont buy a single song :/ im sorry RED, but you guys Lost my attention. If you are looking for their old sound on this CD, you're Wasting Time. Their old music was a Hymn For The Missing, and now i just dont feel the power in the lyrics after "Innocence and Instinct". I hope their next album will Start Again their old sound and awesome non-generic lyrics. I guess their talent is Buried Beneath whoever is in charge of their stuff. BUT i will always be a fan of their old work Forever.

Disappointed Fan

I'll always be a fan, but what the heck happened guys? This is nowhere near the same quality as your first 3 albums, and in many of the songs you don't sound like the same band. I really hope this winds up being a 1-time experiment and that you go back to being the real Red next album.

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...
