Album Notes
Red Guitar storms back with their second release, Beauty Will Save the World, and offer a robust flowering of sonic delight that no doubt reflects their personnel expansion. The seven-piece Kansas City outfit added several new members since 2003’s Based on a Blue Story, and the musical evolution is evident. The alt-country feel that earned early comparisons to the Counting Crows and Neil Young has developed into a sound that defies easy categorization. Sun-drenched overlays of guitars and harmonies, drips of melting synth, and rhythmic variations pepper the attack of singer-songwriters John McKenna and Nick Nave. The result features tracks which first heard apart might seem dissonant, but the band’s superior craftsmanship backed by a concise 10-song format creates a mysterious coherence that is rare among popular music today. From the marching cadence of opener “V-Day,” to the psychedelic soul of “The Sting,” Red Guitar has claimed their own musical territory that owes as much to U2 as to Springsteen.

Red Guitar splashes down with their best effort yet! Red Guitar has most definitely pushed their song-crafting and production to the next echelon of Rock Band with “Beauty Will Save the World”. Refresh yourself with a listen.

Quality of songs makes "Beauty" worth spending $$ on
Rousing optimism is the core of the aptly-titled “Beauty Will Save the World” by Red Guitar. Although the group is most comfortable with mid-tempo tunes (“Manzanita” and “Vday”), it can rock out as exhibited by “Did You Punch Me?” and the clamoring U2ish album closer “Place in the Sun.” The performance only wanes on ballads like “Angel Across the State Line,” but the quality of the songs overall makes “Beauty Will Save the World” worth spending some money on.
