Submission Red is a rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida offering something different, yet entirely the
same. I want to like this release, because it seems to have all of the right components, yet it leaves me wanting. Produced
by Ben Kasica of Skillet, the record sounds great, but almost too great. The production is so slick it has removed most of the
human element, outside of Yvonne Winfrey's vocals. Submission Red is strong, female fronted hard rock in the vein of Fireflight,
Paramore, and Flyleaf. It is so much like them, however, that it ends up sounding formulaic. Simply put, this is a
record that is fun to listen to (with the possible exception of the Superchick soundalike "Drive On") and I bet that this is a
fun band to watch live. I just would love to see something a little more original and all-their-own next time.
