CD Reviews

The more I listened, the more they won me over
George Dionne | Cape Cod, MA | 02/15/2007

"The Good
If you had to pick out two things that stand out when listening to "In Fates Hand" you'd most certainly mention the quick-fire drum beats and riot inducing vocals. Driving rhythms and harmonic vocals set the pace for "Waiting." Chugga-chugga riffage dominate "Face Down," while the storyline delves into domestic violence. An unexpected piano piece sets the ballad "Cat and Mouse" into motion. Smooth vocal melodies continue throughout the track, along with more piano enhancement. Monster riffs run rampant on "Damn Regret." Somehow in the onslaught of distortion, the group manages to pull of some great multi-part vocals. "Atrophy" walks the line between emo and punk rock with its charging progression and belting vocals. "Justify" has one of those memorable riffs that make you want to take guitar lessons.

The Bad
Nothing notable

The Verdict
I was quick to dismiss The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus as another whiney emo band after their first track, but the more I listened, the more they won me over. Sure, they do delve into that genre a bit here and there, but they add other elements of rock that help create their own sound. If you're itching for something new, fun, and energetic; then look no further.

"I was so shocked when I heard this group. I had recently heard "Face Down" on TV & I thought I might check it out online. Well, that became my favorite song of all time and I just had to have the CD. Yes, there is screaming parts in it, but that's not the whole entire CD. The screaming actually makes The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus stand out from other groups. I loved all of the songs and here's my review.

In Fate's Hands: 4/5 - This was a great song to start the CD off. An upbeat, catchy song with great lyrics.

Waiting: 5/5 - I loved this song just after a few seconds of listening to it. The guitar's in it make this a truely unique song.

False Pretense: 4.5/5 - I couldn't give this song just a 4, nor 5. I love the parts where they sing "ca ca ca cause you know". But it's a bit short and I wish they had made the song longer because I loved it.

Face Down: 10/5 - My favorite song on the album and of all time. And it's not some pop song coated with sugar. It's about real life things like abusive relationships and how it affects people. It has a great message in it.

Misery Loves It's Company: 3/5 - Not my favorite, but I definitly like the song. The screaming sort of makes the song less likely to be, well, "liked". But it's still a wonderful song.

Cat and Mouse: 5/5 - I've heard different versions of this song and I LOVED this song. It's not guitars, but a piano, which is something we need to hear more of these days.

Damn Regret: 3/5 - Again, not my favorite, but it's OK. I can listen to it, but not exactly have it on repeat. It's just not that song that has the "WOW" factor, but it's very catchy.

Atrophy: 4/5 - Another one of my favorite songs on the CD. The screaming makes it go "WOW" they can sing, but not just with the screaming. I mean, I don't like songs with screaming being the whole song, but in parts, it can be kind of cool.

Seventeen Ain't so Sweet: 5/5 - Again, I've heard different versions of this song, and I loved it. Even my parent's like the song, which I don't hear very often.

Justify: 3/5 - Probably my least favorite song. I'm able to listen to it, but it doesn't affect me at all. It's just one of those songs that people go "eh, it was OK"

Your Guardian Angel: 5/5 - I LOVED THIS SONG! It starts off with an acoustic guitar and then goes into a power ballad which I loved.

The Hidden Track
Grim Goodbye: 4/5 - This song has the most screaming in it. And it's the longest song I've ever heard. About 7 minutes and 30 seconds or so. It's very powerful and I love the lyrics.

Overall, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus rocks."
I'm a little behind the curve but this CD is excellent

"Okay, I am a high school teacher in my mid-30's so what the heck do I know? More than you think! Well, I have heard a lot of music and am very aware of what young people listen to---even more than their own parents. This CD is terrific in all respects and the lyrics are well written. These guys are clean entertainment and are obviously spiritual but they do not sell their material as Christian rock. These guys are incredible live and are personable young men who sing and play with a passion. The lead singer screams in key and has a vocal range beyond any band I have heard in years.

The guitars and effects create an atmosphere that brings back memories of early Cure although RJA's sound is all their own. I would not call their music Screamo, emo, or alternative since these terms are limiting and overused and do not begin to describe this band that has the talent to outlive these restrictive categories. Thanks RJA for donating your time to the Enterprise High School benefit concert on May 3rd."
