Great Sophmore project!!!
Posted February 02, 2009
I got the new Red album today (yes I know I was surprised too, it was 8 days before the release date) and I have to say, I am very impressed.
The album starts out great with the two great rockers "Fight Inside" and "Death of Me," which, although really don't bring anything new to the table, are awesome songs. Next, their is the unique "Mystery of You," which is already one of my favorites. It changes up a little, and seems to be new ground for Red.
Next, the album goes into "Start Again," a good, solid track that is catchy and, although it seems a little average, still is a good song. Red then breaks into their CHR single "Never Be the Same," a song that I really like. I also like the change up to a bit of a softer feel after all the rock songs to start the album.
The next two songs, "Shadows" and "Confession (What's Inside my Head)" are both good songs. "Shadows" could be my favorite song off the album and is very catchy. "Confession" is another good solid rock song with a lot of emotion in it.
The rest of the album consists of a lot of solid tracks. Red's cover of "Ordinary World" is satisfying, and I enjoyed it. They definately change it up with "Take It all Away," a much softer song than anything else (at least in the beginning).
Red really shines in their sophmore album, and although there's not a ton of new stuff, every song has a lot to offer. I would definately recommend this album to rock lovers!
