    Default Red Wanting Blue - From The Vanishing Point

    online listen
    Guess popmatters (the review) didn't like it
    I did
    Couldn't see the Counting Crows comparison
    Not familiar enough with the Hootie gang to comment, didn't like them
    Vocalist reminds me of the Crash Test Dummies guy with that deep voice
    Nothing I didn't like here
    Clip is not the best, but the best of what was available
    1.9 from me and not yet rated by the pros at allmusic

    Bio - from allmusic

    The rock band Red Wanting Blue formed at Ohio University in Athens, OH, in 1995. The initial lineup consisted of lead singer Scott Terry, Michael Epp, Ryan Eisert, and Jerrod Myers. On September 6, 1996, they self-released their first album, Velveteen. The Image Trigger followed on April 4, 1998. Model Citizen (April 3, 2000) featured the rhythm section of Mark McCullough (bass) and Jonah Dolan (drums), replacing Eisert and Myers. The fourth album, Sirens, appeared on November 16, 2001, and Souvenirs of City Life was released on February 8, 2003. In July 2003, Dolan left the band to be replaced by Mark Stepro. Their sixth album, Pride: The Cold Lover (October 19, 2004), brought them television placements on the shows Love Monkey and Life Is Wild. After the release, guitarist Greg Rahm joined, making the group a quintet. Epp left in October 2005, and John Kengla joined as lead guitarist, while Ed Davis was added as a percussionist. In 2006, Red Wanting Blue took 100 of their fans into the studio with them and recorded the live acoustic album The Warehouse Sessions, also filming the proceedings for a DVD. The package appeared on December 12, 2006. Stepro then left, with Davis taking over as drummer. Red Wanting Blue's eighth album, These Magnificent Miles, was released August 19, 2008, by which time the lineup was comprised of Terry, McCullough, Rahm, guitarist Eric Hall, and drummer Dean Anshutz. In 2010, the band finally signed to a record label, pacting with Fanatic Records, an imprint of EMI/Caroline, which re-released These Magnificent Miles on July 27, 2010.

    Album Review - from popmatters

    Cut from the same cloth as Counting Crows, Hootie & the Blowfish and others of that ilk, this Columbus, Ohio-based outfit suffers from an everyman-ness that might be charming on the bar circuit but proves less so on record. Despite some well-written material and competent performances, Red Wanting Blue ultimately sounds bland—the kind of group that’s perfect for an independent film soundtrack: familiarly inoffensive, offensively unmemorable. Leader Scott Terry does a credible Eddie Vedder-meets-Darius Rucker during “White Snow” and even crafts what could be a minor AAA radio staple, “Cocaine”. “Walking Shoes” could be a Barenaked Ladies castoff albeit with lyrics that fall on the wrong side of the thin line between stupid and clever.
