Dia's voice is so unique and refreshing.
Veronica S.
I love every single song on this first album by Dia, and I look forward to more great albums from her in the future.
Bryan L. Wheeler
Broken Ones is her single from the album and it's a fantastic, catchy radio-worthy song.

I knew there was something special and truly unique about Dia Frampton when she was on The Voice. She stood out from everyone else and was fresh and put her own charming spin on all the songs she sang. She was far and away my favorite.

This album is a fine follow-up that lives up to the potential she showed then.

Unlike a lot of other first albums from musical TV show contestants this one is really wonderful!

It's perky but not too cute. All the songs have real feeling to them and Dia has had a hand in writing them all. Somewhere between folk and pop with a dash of country added on one song by her mentor Blake Shelton. There are great arrangements as well that bring out Dia's individual style beautifully. Remember when she sang REM's Loosing My Religion on The Voice? Possibly her best tune on the show and the one that got her really going as a contender. Well, she gets equally fine backing on Red.

Dia doesn't really fit into one category unless it would be singer-songwriter. She seems to like it this way.

The album's mood is cheery but when you listen to the lyrics there is some real pathos to them, The Broken Ones and Good Boy in particular. Broken Ones is her single from the album and it's a fantastic, catchy radio-worthy song. I love it!

The closest comparison I can make to this album is Duffy's Rockferry.

But Dia is completely Dia and no one else.

I hope this will be the first of many delightful albums from Dia Frampton.

I think this album has its key special trademarks. There's such a great diversity to this album, but it lies true to no single genre. Dia has created her own genre with this album, as it touches upon country pop to soft ballads to more upbeat, dance songs to the old familiar storytelling and darker songwriting. The album is well-balanced and, although I may be biased, I think this album serves as a great milestone for Dia. By searching back to her roots and home all-throughout the songwriting process of this album, Dia has been able to reflect on all of the situations in her life that have led her to where she is now--and the product of that search is the album "Red". Much more mature and holding so much more knowledge of the world around her than when she released her first studio album with her sister Meg in 2006, Dia is able to create songs that are true to her; whether they're sweet, spooky, fun, or just plain make you happy, Dia has captured what she wants in music with this album, but is well aware of the troubles and traps that may lie ahead of her. This is told through her wonderful songwriting and carefully chosen effects in instrumentation. With careful listening, one can easily see the talent that has always bred beneath this small-town Utah girl. Although her earlier songs with Meg & Dia have strictly strayed away from her country roots, Dia is able to incorporate all she's loved and learned throughout the years, mixing in her country roots with the darker rock of her early years, the poppy ballads she's obligingly sung on "The Voice", and the not-too-dancey-yet-still-fun songs that embrace the time she is in now.Read more ›

This is an all around great album. Dia has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. Very unique and original. She deserves this success. Great album. Love you, Dia.

First time I heard Dia in Barnes&Noble with my daughter and we were in love with one of her song right away,didn't even know who she was at the time, but after we discovered all her songs in her album we just couldn't stop listening her.She has a wonderful voice and makes it more exiting when she sings with other known artists.

Gotta say, I'm loving this album. I expected to like it, because I really enjoyed Dia on The Voice, but I didn't expect to like it THIS much. I was a little iffy about the first song, "Kick the Chair," but it grew on me quickly. I immediately LOVED "The Broken Ones", "Billy the Kid", and "Daniel." I think the biggest thing that gets me is the lyrics -- they have a lot of context and tell a story, sometimes creating an intriguing contrast to the upbeat, almost pop beat of the music (as with "Good Boy").

Definitely a winner to have in your collection.

I can't help but love everything this girl does--from her Meg & Dia band to The Voice- It's awesome seeing her venture off in the world to inspire people with her voice and music. I will forever support her and her music. I have to admit this RED recording is much different from her previous stuff but that just shows how many possibilities are stored in her. I have been listening to the album on repeat and have grown to love each and every track, Daniel, being the most personal to her and also my favorite off the album. Buy it!!!!!!

Thanks to Amazon's $3.99 special on this album download, I have discovered a wonderful artist! Dia Frampton's voice (a smidgeon of Lisa Loeb and dash of Colbie Caillat) combined with some infectious tunes make this album worth repeat listens. Something about her voice and the song selections are like running through a clothesline full of freshly laundered sheets on a sunny spring day.
