Red Letter Days was released in 2002. The Alt/Indie music era, which ushered in a sound from many bands one wouldn’t normally hear from the big record companies, was in full swing. We saw Wilco and Broken Social and many others emerge at that time, and Post-Rock, started at least a decade prior, began to rear it’s head. While a commercial success Red Letter Days was criticized by some because it didn’t sound much different than the previous release (Breach). Who gives a shit!? Most consumers judge an album on it’s merits and not whether the music style changes on a timetable. Red Letter Days is a good record which includes everything from slow love songs to high energy heavy rock and roll.
