5.0 out of 5 stars Minus half a star March 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While I haven't yet heard other releases by Hella, this is an epochal record by anyone's standards. Though the electronica-oriented compositions, while entertaining in their own right, will undoubtedly tie the record to its era in the years to come, the astonishing ambition and dexterity of the guitars/drums compositions will help the instrumental "math-rock" genre to be taken more seriously, not only as an entity separate from the post-rock milieu, but as a movement in the modern avant-garde. This review may or may not be an overstatement: you'll just have to hear the record.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Devil isn't Red February 20, 2004
By Jon
Format:Audio CD
Hella have finally brought about another good ol' guitar/drums album... Although they have three computer songs as well, they are all great. This proves that Hella are still indeed moving unabated. I believe they have now surpassed Lightning Bolt in "weirdness", if you'd like to compare them, which is hard to do. Except no subs is a prime example of using computer for good, not evil. Pretty feel good album if you ask me... which you didn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine line between genius and madness January 25, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Characterized by complex beats and sounds, it's hard to believe that Sacramento-based Hella is made up of only two members. With their fourth album, The Devil Isn't Red, guitarist Spencer Seim produces the sounds of two erratic guitarists rolled into one playing off Zach Hill's pounding drums into an incredibly complex combination of indie noise rock. Hella proves there is a fine line between genius and insanity with the unpredictable track "Hello Great Architect of the Universe." Overall, the album is lighter sounding then their acclaimed first album Hold Your Horse Is as Hella continues to develop and define their unique sound. Tracks such as "Mother Could Be You" and the final track "Welcome to the Jungle Baby, You're Gonna Live!" help to decipher a method to Hella's madness. Their music combines the feeling of improvisation with the innovativeness of Primus, leaving much to look forward to in Hella's future.

5.0 out of 5 stars guitar and drums April 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
i totally loved the devil isn't red by hella. my goodness meg and jack you'd better watch out. my friends seem to love a band from pittsburgh called don cab but the devil isn't red is so much cooler and totally out there. i just love the guitar and drum interaction by these two musicians. it sounds like two guitars bass and drums but now it's just two people. hella is going to be touring soon and i can't wait to see them play. i'll have to dig a little deeper into the closet to see though other records but devil isn't red totally is one of the best records i've heard this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hella...whatever June 26, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm very fond of Hella. I would go so far as to say that they're one of the top two or three best live acts I've ever seen. Their rapid fire rhythms satisfy my deep down, and Spencer's guitar is a huge part of the rhythm section, even as his chords deliver pristine, shiny creativity on the down low as the band wows you with its UNPARALLELLED tightness. See live. Album good too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hella refined with the mess! March 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Hella for a few years now and feel that after many listens this is my favourite album. Some things have always bothered me with the common view of Hella; one being that they are a musicians band and two that they belong to the "Math rock" canon. When thinking about the latter I feel that although their music consists of many "math rock" tropes, the result (no matter how rehearsed) is ultimately too messy and loose to belong...maybe like bread and beer (apologies for the metaphor)....However if I continue, Hella would definitely be beer!

They are raw and noisy and will definitely not be for everybody but the music they produce can be strangely uplifting and positive. Spencer Seim has long been an extremely underated part of this band as the more obvious chops of Zach Hill have gathered the most attenton...The final track "welcome to the jungle..." contains very inventive and compelling guitar work...Impressive not for just technique but for bizarre tunefulness that makes Hella so unique!

You won't listen to this every week but when the right mood hits this packs a punch that no other record can deliver. Give it a try!

2.0 out of 5 stars Potently unfocused August 22, 2008
By IRate
Format:Audio CD
2 1/2

Fans of methed-out math rock along the lines of Don Caballero will feel right at home with the hyperactive assault drum and guitar duo, but as a whole TDIR is just too schizophrenically vacant to be anything but a once-in-a-great-while-onslaught kind of album experience. Between half-cooked electronic disharmony and relentless thrash-and-pounds, hardly any tracks feel developed past the effect of constant bleed through, track by track. Still, there is no denying the short-lived, superficial intensity to some of this.
