1995's Red Medicine remains one of my favourite Fugazi albums alongside Repeater (1990) & The Argument (2001); though to be fair, I like them all. People seem to state that fans of Fugazi/Margin Walker/Steady Diet of Nothing - Fugazi tuned out here. I think that's overstating it- as tracks like Bed for the Scraping, Back to Base, & Downed City are as intense as any earlier Fugazi track. & Red Medicine did see the band making almost funky-instrumentals with a track like Combination Lock- but didn't 1993's In On the Killtaker contain similar instrumentals (Sweet & Low? & didn't 1990's Repeater/Song#1 also have similar instrumentals? (Brendan#1, Joe#1). The change isn't that pronounced- & several times I've seen them live and Do You Like Me has gone down as well as an early classic like Waiting Room...
Red Medicine advanced on the post-punk/post-rock stylings of Fugazi- it's surprising how complex and tight these songs are & like earlier material, there's a definite pop-sensibility here (Fugazi aren't afraid of tunes- as much as I admire Minor Threat, Fugazi are more the real deal for me). Listening to Red Medicine it's easy to see where all that EMO-stuff came from (as well as preceding bands to Fugazi like Embrace & Rites of Spring), as well as the briefly hyped precursor to The Mars Volta, At the Drive In.
Fugazi are expanding their sound here- Latest Disgrace is them in epic-mode, throbbing & building on waves of guitars; Birthday Pony is an almost funky slowburner, moving from a piano-introduction to an angular guitar-assault. Even better are the quieter songs like Forensic Scene and By You, which show that Fugazi could easily hold ground with a band like Slint. There is much tuneful here, I don't see why they should apologise for that- Combination Lock, Target & opener Do You Like Me?

Fugazi. Everyone's heard OF them, but not the material itself. Which is a great shame, because they are one of a few bands who release consistantly great music - and Red Medicine is no exception. While it was shunned by fans of their eariler releases (13 Songs, Repeater and Steady Diet of Nothing), Red Medicine took up the fast-paced hardcore sound where 'In on the killtaker' left off - and then shook it around. Some people call it experimental, but I don't think the assorted odd noises between tracks really warrants that. But it is DIFFERENT - in a good way. The use of two lead guitars is definately apparent, as are the continuing contrasts between Mackaye and Picciotto's, shall we say, 'unique' vocal techniques. I.e, not running to the same concepts of "being in the right key" as many other musicians. But don't let that put you off... if Fugzi were regular rock types, then they wouldn't be this prolific.
A great album with plenty of depth.

It's true that many fans didn't like this album (especially when it was released) but don't let this mislead you - by a narrow margin this is Fugazi at their best. Taking post-hardcore to a new level of complexity and subtlety this album definitely rewards repeated listening. In a musical climate where it is difficult to find honesty and a genuine love for music Fugazi stand head and shoulders above the rest.
