Style: Hard rock; compare to Skillet, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin

Top tracks: "Faceless," "Watch You Crawl," "Out of Tune"

Nu-metal is getting so old. Red rehashes the same riffs that Linkin Park achieved fame with over a decade ago, but with considerably less firepower. Even though the album is named after a C. S. Lewis novel (Lewis's actual title is Till We Have Faces), lacks in creativity and thoughtfulness (things Lewis was never short on). Power chords are pounded out in common time until a piano and string bridge offers temporary serenity. It is formulaic and predictable, but some of the faster songs will probably work well in WWE or NFL highlight clips.
