Well, it's pretty much just ordinary record.

I don't intend to listen to the whole thing because I don't want to be disappointed.

The album falls short but still it's Michael Barnes’ best vocal performance.

Hahaha you have no room to make judgements or reviews on a band. Especially when this album won best rock album of the year! Eat dirt!

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?

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

Even though I dig this, I gotta agree it's Red's weakest outing to date.
They'll fix that up with the recalibrated version though.

@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.

Dude, six of my favorite songs off the RTP album are getting strings, I can't even tell you how excited this makes me.
(Especially As You Go and Hold Me Now, those are gonna fucking slay)

Dude, UWHF is amazing, but then again I have Red's first three albums at a 5.

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

Here sapient let me give you my explanation as to why I enjoy this band so much:

1. Michael's vocals. No-one has a sound quite like his, he could sing over dog shit squishing together and it would sound beautiful. His endurance in both cleans and screams is fantastic and his tone is something that a lot of vocalists would love to have.

2. The string work, a lot of the lift that Red has in their sound comes from the string accompaniment that goes along in most of the songs. They work in perfect tandem with Michael's vocals.

3. The crunchy riffs and nice fill work in harder songs. This is pretty self explanatory, listen to songs like "Fight Inside, Out From Under and The Outside."

4. Ballads. Red's ballads are amazing, because the two best parts of this band, Michael and the Strings are usually pushed to the forefront (sometimes there are piano ballads and those are absolutely great too.) Listen to "Pieces" or "Hymn for the Missing."

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

Yeah, that's what turns a lot of people off Red as well. Sometimes people feel that the string work is overdone and cheesy, but for those of us who enjoy it, we REALLY enjoy it.

I would suggest checking out Innocence and Instinct first as that's what people like the most (I have their first three albums at a 5 so I enjoy them all equally), then go for either End of Silence or UWHF.
