I liked the preview of the new version of the title track more. Still not sure how I feel about this. The production and screamed vocals seem a little off.

Oh yeah, everyone here for Crimson Red / Taylor Shit, don't even comment. Just move along without the snarky "I CAME HURR FOR CRIMSON RED"

Yeah this sounded awkward. Not looking good so far.

I loved the preview of the title track though. I'm excited to hear the rest.

The strings do sound nice when they're by themselves but the mixing with the rest makes it sound rather weird. That's just me though.

I really liked them on the title track even when mixed with the instrumentals. They added a completely different mood for me, the track sounds almost completely different than before.

It doesn't sound bad, per se, but it does sound weird. I think the strings need to be a bit louder. I've noticed that over the past couple releases that when they put strings in a song, the strings seem to have seeped deeper into the background and eventually get buried under the rest of the music.

Yeah, production is wierd... Vocals sounded better on RTP, and the strings are a bit too low in the mix

Have full song - its pretty good - better than anything off Release the Panic I think. I'm looking forward to the reworking of Damage, which in my opinion had some cool moments, but was a little bland overall.

Just released the preview for Release the Panic. The strings were distracting and oddly placed.

Both Benson and Graves. They both suck.

He did fine in I&I but some of the production of End of Silence and most of it in UWHF was terrible. He's not the worst and neither is Benson (believe me I've heard worse than most of the crap he's put out) but both just aren't good.

Dude I honestly thought his production in End of Silence was his best work. Everything sounded perfect. I & I was a bit muddy but still amazing, UWHF is a mix of the two and I love it.

Dude, Benson ruins almost every band he touches.

You want to know bad production, look up 30 Seconds to Mars' "Love Lust Faith + Dreams" and tell me what you think.

And honestly a few songs like Give It All Away and Wasting Time were pretty much over-produced throughout. A good chunk of that album suffers from that actually.

ASnideReturns

I'll check that album out eventually.

But how could you not like the production in End of Silence? The guitar tone was honestly downright perfect, the strings were amalgamated into the mix incredibly well, and it was just an atmospheric experience.

It's not that I didn't like the production of End of Silence entirely, there were some very good songs like Already Over and Pieces that production fit in very nicely, but it's pretty much the songs after Pieces when the production goes south, except maybe for Already Over Part 2. And honestly, UWHF is pretty much over-produced in it's entirety, even if Hymn for the Missing was fantastic.

Not to mention, those five minute songs in End of Silence were just too long than what they needed to be.

Next track is Damage...kinda surprised honestly...and of course it sucks.

It's not that I didn't enjoy it, it's just that the strings weren't implemented enough. Too low in the mix on Damage.

Not really, it's that the focus is entirely on the strings. It's distracting.

Preview for Hold Me Now is up...the only one so far that sounds somewhat decent so far.

ASnideReturns
April 20th 2014

Yeah, Hold Me Now (Recalibrated) is probably going to be one of my favorite tracks of 2014 from that small preview I just heard.

Toondude10
April 20th 2014

That's probably because it's a ballad song, if not the only ballad song that's going to have newly placed strings in them.

ASnideReturns
April 20th 2014

As You Go is a ballad that's gonna get strings. Hold Me Now is probably gonna be my favorite on the re-release though.

Toondude10

Same here, but that's not really a good thing, seeing as how I'm not really impressed so far.

I'm interested in how they're going to re-string Glass House though, considering it already has electronic strings. They're probably gonna go all out on that track.

Toondude10
April 20th 2014

I doubt they're actually going to do that. They said that they're only going to do six and so far they put out three. Same Disease, Perfect Life, and So Far Away are probably my guesses on the other stringed ones.

ASnideReturns

The tracks that are going to be restringed:

Release the Panic
Damage
As You Go
Glass House
Hold Me Now
So Far Away

Leaked tracklist. Saw it on Youtube and a couple other sites.

Well in that case, somewhat interested into what So Far Away would be like. Hopefully the strings will serve as backup and not frontrunner for it, like all of the other tracks sound like.

I just wanna hear the new version of As You Go. Hold Me Now is pretty much gonna be my favorite though.

rob graves wrote 'pieces', benson just ruins bands, he's the bob rock of alternative/christian metal or whatever you want to call it... which is actually worse than bob rock.

Rob Graves wrote "Pieces" [2]

That alone tells you how awesome Rob is considering Pieces is one of Red's best songs.

Yeah. It's six songs from "Release the Panic" with strings added and some things changed in the mixes, and one new song.

Yeah it's sounds decent but I need to hear the full track before I can truly voice my opinion for that one. Also, the full verison of Run and Escape was leaked. It's okay, but the production is fucking awful.

I've listened to the entire album now and I did not enjoy it. It's like some halfassed attempt at doing both a remix and an acoustic album at the same time and it just doesn't sound right.

THANK YOU! Someone who finally understands. The redux for As You Go is more like a acoustic remix rather honestly. It's okay but it's nothing impressive.

Btw, where did you find the whole album?

Better: Release the Panic

Worse: Hold Me Now, As You Go

Much Worse: So Far Away, Glass House

No Actual Difference: Damage

Well, I'm finished with my review of this. It's the longest review that I've ever done so far and it's probably going to get a lot of hate, but I don't care.
