23 Red

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Six years after their semi-hyped Starbucks-sponsored stab at breaking out of the independent ghetto, Antigone Rising re-emerge with a slightly different lineup and a much slicker sound on 2011's 23 Red. Here, the group -- now a quartet, down from a quintet -- abandon any pretense of rocking and settle into richly harmonic soft rock, equal parts Fleetwood Mac and Dixie Chicks, with accents of Taylor Swift and Sheryl Crow. 23 Red has a patina of rootsiness, just enough to suggest Antigone Rising isn't manufactured, but the album is decidedly smooth adult pop, as heavily produced as it is melodic. It's almost old-fashioned in its celebration of songcraft and ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Six years after their semi-hyped Starbucks-sponsored stab at breaking out of the independent ghetto, Antigone Rising re-emerge with a slightly different lineup and a much slicker sound on 2011's 23 Red. Here, the group -- now a quartet, down from a quintet -- abandon any pretense of rocking and settle into richly harmonic soft rock, equal parts Fleetwood Mac and Dixie Chicks, with accents of Taylor Swift and Sheryl Crow. 23 Red has a patina of rootsiness, just enough to suggest Antigone Rising isn't manufactured, but the album is decidedly smooth adult pop, as heavily produced as it is melodic. It's almost old-fashioned in its celebration of songcraft and reliance on immaculate production, and its throwback nature is a large part of its charm: this is an album that does not play by the rules of 2011, it's the kind of classicist pop that sounds like it could have been released some 10, 15, even 35 years earlier. And this is the crux of Antigone Rising's appeal, but also their Achilles heel: they make sweet sounds out of time, so it's hard for them to exist within their own. But for those with a taste for well-crafted Californian soft rock, 23 Red will be quite satisfying.

    Highly Recommended! These girls are going to go far!

    I have heard most of the album through youtube and singles released by the girls and live and it's amazing! It's just a feel good easy going album. Would be great to listen to on a road trip. You can feel the good vibes of a band that really gels come through. They seem so in tune with each other. And just so happy to be doing what they love with bandmates they respect. The unity of the band really shines through. You can picture yourself sitting on a porch jamming with a bunch of your friends. It has that very personal, accessible feel. Like you are on the journey with them.

    Amazing!!!

    In a world of scratching turntables, studio tricks, sampling of past music, "artists" who chose style over substance, and dumbed down rehashed 'music', its so refreshing to hear actual music that has real heart and soul from the musicians! With each song there is another wonderful journey. This is a highly recommended CD. You will not be disappointed buying this CD. Play this on your next road trip or just listen to it in the office. Thank You Antigone Rising!

    Buy this album! Soooo good!

    What a great reintroduction to Antigone Rising! Such harmony, musically & personally! A mix of rock, alt/country. Moving songs & stomp them boots songs! This is who they were trully meant to be!

    Awesome song collection. Awesome production. I have to say, I'm quite in love with this album.
