Firstly I'd like to express my dismay at the bad wraps that this album has recieved - generally by close-minded metalheads who are still stuck in the eighties and are afraid of evolution....on to the review.
I believe this album to be one of the most under-rated metal albums of the last 5 years and was (possibly still is) well ahead of it's time. Machine Head went for a really bold and exciting risk by doing this album and have produced something well ahead of it's time. (and yes I have been a fan since Burn My Eyes).
There are less solos on this album than on their previous works but the emphasis with the two guitarists has been placed on complimenting each others works with nuances and swirling background pieces intricate guitar work, but in saying that the heavy crunching guitars are still there making it unmistakibly machine head. Dave McClain does a great job on drums, showing great maturity in his playing with the emphasis less on blast-beats and super-fast drumming but more on off-beats, rolling rhythms and amazing cymbal work - in one word "classy".
Robb's Vocals sound great. He covers a large range of styles and has added some great melodic singing to songs to add some flavor and still retains his best growl which sounds as fat as ever. But all in all a great effort I believe Robb, and the whole band for that matter, have pushed themselves to become better, more versatile musicians.
Ross Robinson did an AMAZING job producing this album. Recorded at Indigo Ranch and using almost totally analog equipment this album sounds like the band is right in the room with you. There are so many layers of sound on each track - The more you listen to it, the more stuff you pick up.

When I heard that Machine Head had lost the long time guitarist Logan Mader I knew that they where going to release a cd with a new guitarist, but I wasn't hoping one this good, not one track is bad, the low end on the drums isn't as good as in The More Things Change... but I liked the drums, simply because Dave McClain does some excellent drum arrangements, and the melodic parts on some songs shows that metal isn't just screams, from the intro (Enter the Phoenix) the cd is filled with very good metal, the rap-metal track Desire To Fire is good but I think Machine Head should experiment with other things, still the song is good, Ross Robinson (producer for KoRn, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, etc) made some good producing without having MH sounding like any of those bands, The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears is a very good song too, with a very good riff, the cover of message in a bottle is very well done, and the last track, the burning red is very soft and melancholic, a very good album, well worth the money.

People were jumping at the chance to say Machinehead sold out with The Burning Red. This album is so intense, none of the Machinehead energy was left off this album. Even without Logan grinding out the riffs, Robb and the guys make an excellent album. 'Desire to Fire' and 'Nothing Left' grab this album from the beginning, and it doesn't stop until the almost soothing final track. Nothing should stop you from purchasing this CD.

I've seen reviewers call this a "sell-out nu-metal album" and that couldn't be further from the truth. I had heard samples of "The More Things Change" on here and was going to buy that but I ended up finding this at a used CD store first. Yes, "The More Things Change" is more solo oriented and hits harder but "The Burning Red" utilizes melody and experiments more. It produces wonderful results because I can't think of one bad song on this album.

Their cover of the Police song, "Message In a Bottle", was excellent and perfectly executed with their style. Reviewers were also complaining about how the lead singer rapped on a couple songs. Well, this is one of those exceptions where it actually worked like a charm and that style is only used in about 3 songs. As for the lack of guitar solos, the guitar played a different role here. Instead of shredding, the guitars created atmospheric blends and memorable guitar lines and riffs. If you look up the lyrics to the songs, the band even tries to convey a positive message (even if they talk about the negative some too).

Anyway, I plan on buying more Machinehead albums in the future and I suggest you buy this one; regardless of what any naysayers say about it.

A horrible album! Just not good. I was a huge M.H. fan before this came out. The highlight is the cover of Message in the bottle the rest of the album seems like the record label was in charge of the direction. I'm happy to say after one more bad album M.H. was back to making some of the most memorable metal albums of the last 20 years!

I was first introduced to Machine Head by their cover of Black Sabbath's "Hole in the Sky" off the Nativity in Black Vol. 2 tribute album. That track blew me away. They'd taken an already great song and imbued it with a building ferocity and intensity (particularly that last minute or so) I had not expected.

I decided to check out their latest album at that time (The Burning Red) and I was not disapointed. Most of the mp3s I heard were great, most memorably the song "I Defy". So I bought the album.

As the album somewhat deviates from their previous efforts, The Burning Red has been almost universally panned by the die-hard fans, who accuse the band of jumping on the nu-metal bandwagon. I don't consider myself a nu-metal fan, but then I generally think of nu-metal with regards to bands like Deftones, which I'm not really into. It's hard to describe the nu-metal sound, but this just isn't it.

Honestly, I've had a harder time getting into Machine Head's prior albums. They're both good, but they've got a vaguely Pantera-esque sound that doesn't strike the same chord with me. This album sounds to me like a band that's progressing, not selling out. They've learned to write more accessible music with catchier beats and rhythms while maintaining their anger and intensity. The only track I sometimes skip is their cover of Sting's "Message in a Bottle", which is good but starts to feel played after I've heard it a few times. This album is the kind of metal I'd want to make. There's a certain tenacity and build-up behind it all, especially in the verse sections. Vocalist Rob Flynn even breaks out into an angry rap once or twice, but only often enough to be effective and not tiresome. This is not Limp Bizkit.

The Burning Red ranks right up there with some of my favorite crushing metal albums of the 90's like Roots by Sepultura and Demanufacture by Fear Factory. If you ask me, this album is old school.
