Album Review:End Of Silence

Credit:Official site
Artist:RED

Songwriters:Anthony Armstrong, Jasen Rauch, Rob Graves, Jason McArthur, Chad Cates

Genres:Rock

General thoughts:Another rock band. More emotional music. So let's see how this goes, shall we? Much of it has a sense of pain or desperation. Some of it places hope in a relationship (whether with God or a lover is hard to determine).

It might not be terribly original, nor are the vocals always inspiring. But there's something about it that draws me to it. Maybe it's the emotion I mentioned. Maybe it was the thoughtful mood it put me in.

Overall, while it's not perfect, I still enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Track Listing

1. Intro (End Of Silence)
Thoughts:This is just a short piano intro. It's not bad.
2. Breathe Into Me
Thoughts:This is about coming alive. Not exactly original, but it's a great rock song.
3. Let Go
Thoughts:This is about a toxic person that tries to take you down with them and not wanting to be afraid anymore. Pretty good. Also, interesting fact:It makes me think of Minecraft.
4. Already Over
Thoughts:This is about a relationship that deeply affected you and returning to that person. It's a little sad, and definitely worthwhile.
5. Lost
Thoughts:This is about being absorbed into a relationship. It's okay, but not a masterpiece.
6. Pieces
Thoughts:This is about giving the pieces of your shattered self to God or a lover so you can be whole again. Pretty good.
7. Break Me Down
Thoughts:This is a "make me a new person and destroy the old" kind of song. It's not too bad.
8. Wasting Time
Thoughts:This tells someone that their efforts to bring down the speaker are useless. It gets a little threatening. (At one point, he speaks in a Batman voice.) Mediocre.
9. Gave It All Away
Thoughts:This implores a friend who left you to come back because you can't do things by yourself. Not too bad.
10. Hide
Thoughts:This talks about wanting to run and hide because you make so many mistakes and leaving a great love. Pretty nice.
11. Already Over, Pt. 2
Thoughts:This is a slower, quieter version of the song above. How much I like it depends on what kind of mood I'm in.



So what was your opinion?
