Red Star Revolt: Red Star Revolt

Coming together in the mountains of Colorado, Red Star Revolt seems like a band that might have been in hibernation up there for the past 30 years and only recently emerged. This trio relies heavily upon the influences of early prog music legends such as King Crimson, early Genesis and Traffic along with some of the other major acts from that time period. The first song "Dementia" haunted me for days as the melody line seemed so familiar. Then it hit me that this is the same riff as the Allman Brothers "Whipping Post".

When I hear the song "The Song Remains" the only thing they forgot was "The Same" to fully name this tune that will STRONGLY remind you of acoustic Zeppelin.

From there the band delves further into a style that really has nothing to do with modern music. This one is like something you might have pulled out of a time capsule from 1970. Although this does produce a few good moments, such as the song "Separation of Soul", there is not enough on here to keep you from drawing a yawn or two throughout.

1. Dementia
2. At Most Desire
3. The Song Remains

5. FM(All or Nothing)
6. Sour

My Score:

Wow! THIS Nu-prog IS awful! Horned rimmed glasses with those ever so THICK lenses AND they still can't figure out where they are going. Well, At least they can love each other. TASTY!! Say it isn't so?

My Score:

"yes......and UNFORTUNATELY there are people in EVERY generation with a BAD TASTE in music"

I honestly do not believe that you listened to this CD as a musician WOULD, OR a writter for that matter. As I see that you have no idea the talent that is in this band that creates the UNIQUE sound of Red Star Revolt.

AWFUL review man, do your homework!
