6 Tuesday, December 8, 2009 By KimBerly morgan Contributing Writer Diversions Struggle, escape pervade Red 9’s debut Red 9’s first full-length album lacks some creativity but holds strong grunge appeal Red 9, an indie rock band from Southern California, adds another alternative/grunge album to the popular mixed genre’s list. The full-length debut album titled “The Host” contains eight songs, all of which sound like cookie-cutter grunge rather than alternative. The band begins its album with a slow drumbeat in the first song “Adios.” While each song contains melancholy notes, this one evokes the most gloominess. Jeff Lyons, lead singer and bass player, sings, “I don’t ask why, I don’t ask what it means/It may not be as crazy as it seems/A line is drawn, a line is crossed/Are we gonna dig another grave?” Listeners will immediately assume that the album’s theme is personal battle. The next song, “Pedophile,” may refer to a real life struggle. The lyrics and Lyons’s voice hold the listener’s attention as he sings, “I was not born afraid/You made me that way/With what you’ve said and what you’ve done/It never seems to fade.” Red 9’s only creative and standout song, “Facedown,” progresses in layers, first with low guitar, bass and vocal notes that sound almost eerie. Then at the chorus, the singer belts out, “Just tell me one thing/Will you take it face down/Will you beg for it now?/‘Cause I want to know.” The music progresses halfway through the song from grunge to alternative via Paul Frislie’s bright guitar strums. After the rich and carefree guitar notes in “Facedown,” the skillful guitar strums, synthesizer sounds and lyrics in “Last Mistake” will likely make listeners feel like they are suffocating. A verse says, “A welcome disease/Force me on my knees/In deeper, now I feel the squeeze/I need to scream out/While drowning in doubt.” Some creativity is in the song “Out Like a Soldier.” The beginning sounds like a song heard in a western film. The rhythm matches a cowboy’s slow, aimless footsteps, and the lyrics, “Taste of metal, smell of oil/I’m running for my life/Wandering for far too long/And praying for daylight,” could very well describe an outlaw. In “Lay to Waste,” sirens and the sound of crackling fire begin the album’s final song. Then the classic grunge music arrives. It winds down at the end and leaves Lyons alone in the song with the words, “Am I the only one?” While listening to the album, it is easy to compare Red 9’s music to that of Creed, Nirvana and Bush. Also, Lyons’s vocal chops sound similar to Aaron Lewis from Staind and Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam. On the downside, while the lyrics hold deep meaning, the structures lack creativity. There is not much rhyming in the lyrics and the grunge music sounds the same in every song. LOS ANGELES — “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live” gave the public a peek at the nominees for the upcoming Grammy Awards. The one-hour show was broadcast on CBS Dec. 2, hosted by LL Cool J. Some of the nominees mentioned were Jay-Z, Eminem, and Lady GaGa. The show included performances by nominees Sugarland, Black Eyed Peas and Maxwell. Taylor Swift is one of the leading stars, receiving eight nominations total. Swift’s “Fearless” was nominated for Album of the Year. But the top contender with 10 nominations is Beyoncé. Her song “Halo” is nominated for Record of the Year. The Black Eyed Peas received nominations for Album of the Year, Best Pop Performance By A Duo or Group With Vocals, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Dance Recording and Record of the Year. They performed the same song, “I’ve Gotta Feeling,” twice on stage. Nick Jonas was the biggest cheeseball in the show. He debuted his side project, The Administration, performing “Who I Am.” Other memorable performances included Sugarland singing “Coming Home” in front of L.A. Live’s Christmas tree. Maxwell performed a tribute to Michael Jackson singing “The Lady in My Life.” The Grammys will be broadcast Jan. 31, 2010.

However, each song tells the same message differently and Red 9 coats the music with intense sentences such as, “After all we will become the dust” and “A dying man is all the proof we need/Growing from our mind just like a weed/ Lay to rest while we lay all to waste.” Grunge fans are sure to enjoy “The Host.” Those who like alternative rock will eventually learn to like this album, as the songs are easier to adjust to after some time. Overall, Red 9 produced a decent debut. Visit for full article.
