Red's work is amazing! Until We Have Faces has a slight blend from their previous 2 albums End of Silence and Innocence & Instinct along with something new. I loved it from the first time i listened to it. The best songs are "Faceless", "Not Alone", "Feed the Machine", "The Outside", "Who We Are", "Hymn for the Missing", "Let It Burn", and "Buried Beneath". You will love this album!
As a huge Red fan, I was very excited to listen to Until We Have Faces. This cd is a good example of Red striving to become more 'radio-friendly'. This is not really a bad thing, however. "Feed The Machine" is the heaviest on the album, and possibly Red's best song to date! "Buried Beneath" and "Watch You Crawl" are other catchy tracks, and "Who We Are" is a solid anthem worthy checking out. I was very impressed with their more uplifting Christian lyrics this time around. Especially in "Not Alone" and "Best Is Yet To Come". Red does seem to be slowly losing their originality (the piano was rather absent until the final song; song length is also decreasing), but they keep their music honest and great to listen to, so its no problem. I highly recommend this cd to any Red fan or someone looking for a solid rock album.
Whoa!! Beware. When you put this cd in the cd player, it EXPLODES! Feed the Machine is an unbelievable song as well as Faceless, which they recently played on the tonight show. Slowly, they calm down into the Hymn for the Missing. It is truly amazing how they combine heavy metal and the classical kinds of music. If you are a heavy metal fan, this one is a must buy. I can't wait to rock out with RED at the Winter Jam here in a couple weeks!!
