THE DISC: (2007) 11 tracks clocking in at approximately 56 minutes... however the last untitled track is 11 minutes of silence followed by a 60 second garage jam. So in reality, there are 10 tracks coming in at 44 minutes. Included with the disc is a 6-page booklet containing song titles/credits, musicians, and thank you's. Album cover artwork by front man John Dyer Baizley. Recorded at The Jam Room in Columbia, SC. Label - Relapse Records.
COMMENTS: A new album with an old familiar sound... like those garage days are being revisited. Heavy guitars and a loud bass dominate the melodies. The rumbling is raw and stripped down - no keyboards and sound effects. I've had this album for several weeks now and I can't help but hear elements of early BTO, Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Fireball Ministry, Isis, Black Stone Cherry, and Mastodon (though not as progressive and not as much vocal growling). Hard rock (borderline metal) with a southern rock flare. I'd also swear I heard some of Molly Hatchet's triple axe rhythm guitar licks too. First and foremost - the band likes to jam. The intros to the songs are long - sometimes 2 or 3 minutes before the vocals enter. There are 4 instrumentals on this "Red Album" - the beautifully acoustic "Cockroach En Fleur", the trippy "Aleph", "Teeth Of A Cogwheel" (with an intro reminiscent of Steve Miller's "Swingtown"), and the slow chugging "Grad". What first hooked me into the album was the opener "Rays On The Pinion" - a cool intro - nice rocking jam that gets heavier as the song progresses. Another highlight is "Isak" - some heavy bass along with some great drumming and hi-hat work.Read more ›
"Red Album" is a straight out rocker. The more sensitive stuff, including some truly ethereal songs on the "Yellow and Green Album" would come later. It makes good company with Clutch's self titled second album and "Pure Rock Fury" and Mastodon's "The Hunter" to name a few but is original enough to not be a knock off of anybody else.
I would give it five stars if it wasn't for a gimmick I hate - putting "hidden" tracks at the ends of CD's, usually 10 or more minutes for a jam or something that could and should have been in with the rest of the album, or wasn't worth the wait for. When the music stops, I'm not waiting around that long to hear anything, and I wish bands would quit doing this crap.Read more ›
