I hate it when people do that.



@Nudecorated



I liked this record and TFK's but otherwise yeah. Not to mention Skillet won best rock song...and lets be honest, they didn't deserve that.

Sick Of It definitely didn't deserve that award.

The album that ruined Red for me. I can't even get through this one.

Idols have what fans want, and fans have what idols want.

Can you break the link?

“In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.” Judy Garland

Then wake up in the morning and don't go to work, go find what you want the most.

Release yourself from all occupations.

@Snide XD hahaha, yeah but for different reasons. Honestly, I think UWHF is their worst. It's too

polished.



And as for that Recalibrated review, unless it's better than what I'm expecting (kinda hoping it is

tbh), expect it to be a negative review. Honestly, I'm not really thrilled for it.

I know this isn't the album that can explain it, but can someone tell me why some of Red's stuff gets a relatively good amount of acclaim. Don't get me wrong, I don't think they're awful by any means, but listening to I&I I have a hard time distinguishing them from other average radio rock

He is definitely a good singer, I can agree there. Idk, maybe the main reason why is because of the strings, like maybe for one song here and there they'd be fine, but having them so frequently make it feel over-produced to me.

Idk, maybe I should just go try them again, it's been a long time since I've jammed these guys anyways

'Innocence and Instinct' is pretty much alt rock gold, so go for that!

I'm not, if anything I'm expecting it the strings to ruin it for me.



And as for UWHF, I think it's their worst because it's pretty monotonous and overall average for Red. Granted I still like it, but it's pretty much the first time where everything they had on that album seemed recycled from their older work.

Feed the Machine, Faceless, Lie to Me, and Hymn for the Missing are the best on that album, don't get me wrong. But I don't find the rest of the album to be that memorable. And also, Not Alone sounds like a Kutless cover.

Are you kidding me? I love Red's strings, especially on I&I, they were fantastic. It's just that on UWHF they seemed more like a distraction and the strings on If We Only seemed to be place awkwardly imo.

Same here, even if I'm not expecting that much from it.



Also, the lack of strings is pretty much Red finally getting themselves away from their comfort one. Read Alex's review of this, he get's it right.

I will say it really was ambitious and it occasionally doesn't work (i.e. Damage and Same Disease) but I found it to be an improvement over their last album.

I know, it's repetitive as fuck and Damage was pretty trashy, though the vocal performance was fantastic.

I didn't like Damage all that much honestly. It's kinda like the "Until it Breaks" of this album in that doesn't serve much purpose.
