A short time ago, Crucified Barbara released their 4th studio album. The four Swedish girls originally started as a Punkrock band but since their debut album from 2005, they have played high energy Hardrock. That´s what they still do in 2014. The songs on “In The Red” all sound a bit similar and real highlights are missing (with the exception of “I sell My Kids For Rock `n Roll” and “Don`t Call On Me”, perhaps). Hence, the asset of this album is certainly not the sophisticated songwriting but clearly the pure energy the songs spread. And for this reason alone, the album is worth listening to. If you are looking for a soundtrack for your next party, which pleases rockers, punks and metalheads alike, this is the album for you. If you prefer to listen to music all by yourself, with your headphones on, it surely isn´t.
