Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

Griffin's follow-up to the acoustic, lyric-based material of Living with Ghosts shifts gears so dramatically, it hardly seems like the work of the same artist. In an electric wonderland of dense percussion tracks (played by Kenny Aronoff) and tricky guitar attacks (handled by producer Jay Joyce), Griffin reveals herself as a muscular rock & roll singer as well as an emotionally vulnerable balladeer. If the Ramones-loud title track seems to be trying too hard to rock and other cuts just sound busy, overwhelming the song with production--the chaotic rant of "Wiggley Fingers," for one--the anthemic pulse of "Tony" and the modern soul of "Christina" are gorgeous and convincing. They're the work of an imagination set free, if not fully grown. --Roy Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars An Eclectic Little Gem August 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Just got through listening to this CD all the way through on a road trip. This is the third time and it gets better with every listening. I had never heard of Patty but saw her on Austin City Limits with Buddy and Julie Miller, Dave Matthews, and Emmylou Harris. Leave it to Emmylou to find hidden diamonds and bring them to somebody's attention. Buddy's "Cruel Moon" and Julie's "Broken Things" are both strong works but of the three, "Flaming Red" is my favorite.
Don't even think about buying this if you like a CD where all the songs are in the same musical style. This one gets around with a surprise behind every door - most of them very, very pleasant. Patty has a dynamic, expressive voice with a wide range. She uses it to great effect, sometimes sounding like a little girl (think a more childlike Rickie Lee Jones) and other times rocking with the best of them. I saw where some reviewers thought that the production overwhelmed that voice at times. On the first song, maybe. On the rest, impossible!
Styles range all over the place and all of them work. She uses the little girl voice well in "One Big Love", a jewel of a song inviting her boyfriend on a beach romp. It's got a real island sound until you hit the chorus and then it just flat rocks. She shows a lot of insight into the cruelties teenagers inflict on each other in "Tony", a tale about a homosexual kid she ignored in high school who later takes his own life. It's back to rocking on "Change", which describes what a particular woman goes through trying to please an impossible to please man. About the time you think you have her figured out she pulls out "Goodbye".

5.0 out of 5 stars Flaming Best October 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the CD that made me a Patty Griffin fan. None of her other releases have surpassed this album, and I wish she would make another one like it. Not that her other records are bad (I love them all); it's just that what she has done after FLAMING RED is in the more ordinary realm of singer/songwriter, folkie stuff, and as much as I'm into that fairly broad category, I wish other artists would take a cue from this production: it's okay to experiment, and ROCK some, guys -- you won't necessarily lose your folk credentials (unless you rock badly).

There is not one dud on this set, but there are some standouts: "Tony" is a heartbreaking account of a suicide that will get under your skin if you've ever been picked on at school for being a sissy, and the blistering instrumental arrangement mirrors Griffin's verbal outrage. "Carry Me" has an infectious groove, and even the ballads have a pulse that can turn a downer into an upper. "Go Now" and "Goodbye" are simply gorgeous. Throughout, Patty's expressive voice, by turns breathy and soft or piercing and loud, is perfectly controlled and always on pitch. This is not a performer who thinks it is necessary to decorate every note and bend every phrase in order to convince us that she can sing. We get that, and she respects our intelligence. Thoughtful lyrics, simple melodies, electrifying arrangements, and glorious vocals make this, from start to finish, a deeply satisfying album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than "Living With Ghosts" November 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
For all the reviewers who wrote that they loved "Ghosts" and hated "Flaming Red" did not give it a chance. I absolutely fell in love with "Ghosts" after hearing "Every Little Bit" on the radio. That disc has a raw beauty that probably will never be reproduced.
When I first put "Red" into my CD player the first 2 songs through me for a loop. Very different with the band. If I wrote a review of that album at that time, I probably would have vented like the others and said that she sold out and what a shame, blah, blah.
After a few listens, however, I found the hidden gems. The power of "Tony", the strength of her voice in "Change", the lyrics of "Mary" and "Christina". At this point (after about 1000 listens), I love every song from the power-pop "One Big Love" to the ache of "Peter Pan".
People said the "production" of this album hid Patty's voice, but I disagree. "Flaming Red" showcases it and I absolutely love every note. Please buy this disc and discover the wonder, beauty, magic, power, fun and uniqueness of Patty Griffin and "Flaming Red"

5.0 out of 5 stars Too good to miss October 29, 1999
By Jon
Format:Audio CD
I am going to dare to review this disc being someone who discovered Patty Griffin after she already gained a following with her Living with Ghosts CD. For some reason, fans of people like Patty, Ani DiFranco, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, etc, feel they have "discovered" something new and don't want to share it with anyone. So when this artist that they discovered starts getting more popular and taking musical turns and risks, these "old school" fans feel the need to alienate their fabulous wonderful new musician and not give the new material any chance. The old stuff is always the best right? I disagree.
Yes, it's true I had never heard of Patty Griffin until Flaming Red came out. If this makes me a less "worthy" fan simply because I did not hear of her first, then so be it. The truth is that I came across the Flaming Red CD at a listening station in a music store and was blown away. If I could be that impressed by 30 second snippets of each song in the middle of a huge music store, I knew that it had to be something special. Flaming Red is very special.
To be fair to those people who criticized this CD for not have the "rawness" of her entirely acoustic debut album, I bought Living with Ghosts without hearing a single track. And though I was very impressed by the folky, country-like simplicity of Living with Ghosts, I still have to pick Flaming Red as one of my all time favorite CDs. The beauty of Living with Ghosts originates from her lyrics, simplicity and largely from the power of her voice... I feel that there are times when her voice is almost too empowering for a simple acoustic guitar.
On Flaming Red, she has proven that evolution can be beautiful.
