Not my kind of music... But I got it for grandchildren. They are into this type of sounds. I pray that it becomes ingrained. Hearing good news over and over drummed into the head works for me, and expect the same for them. Getting each child a different CD they can upload to their MP3.
I bought this CD for a friend whose favourite band used to be Korn and didn't really connect too much with anything Christian that I liked. She was immediately head over heels in love with it and listened to it for about 12 hours straight. I will be passing more of this band's music on to her.
Okay, I have never heard Linkin Park, but a lot of people say RED sounds like them. Anyway, here's the review:This is a great alternative rock album (that really put my nerves on edege). They don't really scream, but think more along the lines of "growling." They are a Christian band, and though they don't overtly mention God or Jesus in the lyrics, it constantly to someone who is obviously them. This band's music is also meant to draw people who don't know Christ in too.About RED's music style:It's like blending Egyptian music with Hard Rock.Conclusion:An edgy Alt. Rock album.
This is one of my favorite CDs. They music is great, and the lyrics are awesome. There is no "bubble gum" lyrics, but lyrics about the real issues of the struggle Christians have daily with Satan and their sin nature. When you listen to all the songs in order it is like going through a journey from sin and bondage and the battle that leads to freedom.
