Innocence & Instinct [Deluxe]

All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
Among the most anticipated rock releases of 2009, Innocence & Instinct ratcheted up the foursome's fierce attack with vivid musical imagery and more intensely pounding sonic dissonance. The band chalked up over 500 gigs on the road following their 2006 debut, earning tour spots with the likes of Papa Roach, Sevendust, Three Days Grace, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Staind, Seether, Kutless, Disciple, Third Day, and Switchfoot. In late 2007, the band's tour van crashed into a highway guardrail at 75 mph, landing sideways across lanes. Everyone miraculously survived, but not without enduring a bloody, hellish aftermath that ultimately fed the creative force behind the new...

Among the most anticipated rock releases of 2009, Innocence & Instinct ratcheted up the foursome's fierce attack with vivid musical imagery and more intensely pounding sonic dissonance. The band chalked up over 500 gigs on the road following their 2006 debut, earning tour spots with the likes of Papa Roach, Sevendust, Three Days Grace, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Staind, Seether, Kutless, Disciple, Third Day, and Switchfoot. In late 2007, the band's tour van crashed into a highway guardrail at 75 mph, landing sideways across lanes. Everyone miraculously survived, but not without enduring a bloody, hellish aftermath that ultimately fed the creative force behind the new album. Also drawing upon Dante's Inferno for inspiration, Innocence & Instinct goes deep inside the soul of man to explore the duality of man. And though it may not exactly be the first album to tackle this theme, it is easily one of the most explosive, hard-hitting attempts. Once again, Michael Barnes' ferocious vocals lead the attack, still able to slip at a moment from primal screaming to a controlled snarl and back again. Lead single "Fight Inside" drives home the point that this album expresses a heavyweight clash from the inside out. Above all, you get the feeling that this isn't just noise for noise's sake; that the intensity has meaning behind it. Fans who drove Red's debut over the quarter-million mark will find this effort even more intense and unstoppable. [A deluxe edition was also released.]

    RED Innocence and Instinct DELUXE

    Red's new album Innocence and Instinct is my most favorite recording of all time. The passion in their voices, the strings and piano, the rocking guitar and best of all--the intense screams--are just incredible. The leader singer has really stepped up his game and polished his voice. While End of Silence was full of emotion, at times, the band tended to sound whiny. This CD is not whiny in the least--rest assured. If you don't like bands full of intensity and singing about the struggles of daily life, then pass this one on. The issues are real, as is fervor. There is much more substance behind this, their second album. Spring for the Deluxe version--it is so worth it. On a side note, seeing the band live is incredible. They put on a great show!

    RED really ROCKS!

    If you're a fan of RED, I can assure you, this CD won't let you down! They take off right where they left off with their first' CD, " End of Silence". Inspiring lyrics and powerful, moving sounds! You can listen all the way through without having to skip or jump over certain songs. It's the kind of music that lifts you up and makes you feel better about anything you may be going through. Somehow you're able to find meaning in every song, almost as if it was written just for you. I am constantly amazed at their ability to sound so unique. I highly recommend this CD as well as their first release, "End of Silence." Red RULES! =)
