Good, But Not As Good As It Could Be

Let me say initially, I like Red, a lot. I think they are really talented musicians who can craft brilliant melodies and songs. Which makes me ask, why do they scream so much?

Yes I know, some love the screaming, but it just feels so out of place for me, especially on tracks such as "Fight Inside," "Confessions(What's Inside My Head)" and "Shadows." I like the songs a lot and I feel the out-of-place screams really mar them.

"Death of Me" is the only song where I feel them tolerable and maybe somewhat complementary to the rest of the song. And the song is definitely a good and catchy song.

When Red doesn't scream, musical brilliance is left. "Start Again" is an epic track that feels like it's taken straight out of a movie score. "Mystery of You" and "Forever" are strong rock tracks. Their cover of Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" is also musically amazing. And the slow-building "Take It All Away" bursts into a beautiful and memorable finish, bringing the album to a fantastic close.

Call me biased, but Red just sounds so good when they don't scream, it makes the times they do scream a bit lamentable. I hope the screaming is again dialed down on their next release, albeit a bit selfishly. I just feel that with less screaming, I can learn to LOVE Red rather than just like.
