A Kid's Review on June 20, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I would put this in my top 10 (maybe my top 5?) albums of all time. Certainly, my favorite Otomo Yoshihide album. For half the album, you just hear this wailing flute-ish middle-eastern sounding sample that pulses between the two speakers. You fall into a trance. Then, at the halfway mark, all these instruments come in and it's like nothing you've ever heard. I once heard a story that I'm pretty sure is wrong:

After this performance the band decided to break up because they thought they could never play anything as good as that again.

This is probably not true, but you'd think it was from the music.

This is the first of his albums I've listened to, but still my favorite. If you like Miles Electric, NoWave/Noise, freejazz, I.D.M., experimental or other odd music, YOU WILL LIke this.

Ornette Coleman and Lightning Bolt got married, and this was their child.

First comes the foundation, a looped sample of music from the 82nd intangible cultural asset of the Republic of Korea, a lovely sonic fraction captured of shaman Kim Suk Chul that repeats throughout the duration of this one piece, one track, CD. For the next half hour, the sound thickens, new frequencies, sudden short bursts of grinding noise, and then finally a heavy rock drumming kicks in with the bass keeping slow time, 4/4, the snare popping every fourth beat, boom boom pop boom boom boom boom pop boom boom boom pop... the bass hanging on a single note for a long stretch at first, then after minutes, the note changes, a perfect change. It chugs along like heavy rock with all these other sounds, including the original sample, pulsing through the frequency field, as the bass notes now change more frequently. Everything grows more intense until all form other than the original sample seems to give way to an extended explosion of chaos, climaxing such that, if played as loudly as it should be played, it leaves one either blissed out or worried about heart failure or ear damage. This is a great, intense, mystical, beautifully constructed piece of sonic expression. The person who gave a warning and a one star review shouldn't be dismissed, though obviously I disagree with rating, but this isn't for everyone. It ain't Bach, or Waylon & Willie, or the Sex Pistols, or One Direction, or Eno, or ..... This is essential for those who are acquainted with the fringes of adventurous musical expression and like exploring different ways of, and reasons for, making music. This piece isn't as inaccessible as some I've heard. I like unusual music, but there are some works I can only take in small doses. When I first heard this piece, I listened to it in its entirety (which is important), three times before I could listen to anything else, and then I went looking for more Ground Zero and Otomo Yoshihide to listen to.

I would agree with the other reviewer that this is simply one of the greatest pieces of music ever. A review can really not justly describe the strange yet awe-inspiring piece of music that is Consume Red. Even if you do not usually delve into experimental music, this will convert you into the wonderful musical world of Otomo Yoshihide and others.
