Sound — 9
Red is a rock band that combines hard, deep rifts with peaceful piano and stringed instruments. Red has a sound unlike any other band. No matter what anyone says they are one of a kind with how they incorporate the violin, piano, vocals and guitars into their music. There first 2 songs have that Hard sound with the classic Red screams that many will enjoy. The next few songs are softer with great lyrics greats guitar riffs and even better orchestra sounds. The overall quality of the sound is great you can hear all of the little violin parts the little picking the piano all clearly. Overall this is a great sounding album.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics on this album sound great but personally they are harder to put together and find out what they are trying to get across in some songs. Other songs it's quiet obvious to what they are saying. And knowing that they are Christians the lyrics are very inspiring. Barne, the lead singer has a great voice. Overall the lyrics are good and are unlike many other bands.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall this album is very good. I bought the extended version of the disc and I highly suggest getting it over the regular version. The songs that stand out the most to me where Shadows, Mystery of You, and Forever (Bonus Track). But honestly there isn't one song on the CD that I disliked. The intro track is a little bit weird I really want to know what the meaning behind it is. But this is a great CD. If I lost or stole this CD I would buy it again for sure.
