The previous reviewer summed it up in terms of it's an inspiring song and for me, it's the type of song I want half-way through my workout mix to help push me through. "Built to Last" is a great power song and I'm a big fan of any song that can rock out with strings in the background. I did want to mention that about a minute-twenty in, he does use the f-word. It's not a deal breaker for me, but I wanted to mention it in case a first time listener decided to rock out with some young impressionable ears sitting in the backseat.
Overall great song and I've added it to my playlist.

Redlight King's "Built to Last" is solid, intense rock - the kind of song that just demands to be turned up loud. The music is powerful, textured, and interesting; though dominated by a fierce drumbeat, the song also features some passionate guitar work and other instruments. The singer's voice is tough but clear, and despite the intensity of the music, it never overpowers the lyrics but rather lends them additional force. "I've been beat up and broken down, and I've been there a thousand times," the singer confesses, but states his determination to live a meaningful life in spite of it all, and having come intact through his trials, he concludes he was "built to last." This is an inspirational song, but not of the feel-good variety - this is a rough-hewn song of hard-won survival. Having come through some horrible experiences in my life, I find this song has a very personal appeal to me in addition to its musical appeal, and I can see myself cranking it up and singing along someday when I'm feeling discouraged. Download this song if you ever need help staying strong - or if you're just a fan of good passionate rock.

Sounding like The Script with a little 3 Doors Down tossed in for good measure, Redlight King certainly has a sound that is accessible according to today's standard of music. I can't say that the song is particularly strong, in that it is going to really grab an audience and make instant fans, but I can see raw potential that is ripe to be chipped away at and uncovered. I'm kind of over the whole rap/rock thing, and it is becoming increasingly outdated, so I'm baffled when new acts try their hand at it, especially in a way like Redlight King does here because it doesn't sound new or fresh; it sounds like early aughts at the very best. That said, he has promise, but I fear that it'll be squandered by lack of originality or ambition. Not to be rude, but `Built to Last' sounds rather lazy to me. I know that some rave the ideals behind the lyrics and the message that he is sending, but even at that, the lyrics aren't particularly inspired but far more standard than I would have liked to hear. The vocals are sound though, despite being slightly too familiar, and so I'm interested in seeing where Kaz goes from here. Not sure I'm ready to plunge into his full length CD, but I'll be on the lookout for some more tracks to get a better idea of how I really feel.

I'm interested, but not completely sold.

I have found this to be one of the best up and coming albums to date. It is full of very well written, heartfully performed rock songs. You can hear the passion and talent of this singer/songwriter who is his music. You have no excuse for not giving them a listen as Amazon is giving you a free download of 'built to last', try it...you will like it!
