I bought this cd when it was released in 2002 and instantly dismissed it. I thought apart from tracks 1 and 10, the music lacked emotion, clarity and power. I found acts like Skycamefalling, From Autumn To Ashes, Converge and more recently Since By Man fulfilled my muscial tastes and thus this cd was pushed to the bottom of the pile next to Vision Of Disorder and The Hurt Process. However...
With the release of their new album imminent, i decided to give Tear From the Red another chance, and thank god i did. For some reason now this cd exudes immense intensity while at all times containing dark melodies and very emotional vocals. Everything fits and nothing sounds 'sell out-ish'. I listened to Finch after Tear From The Red and it sounded amateurish, weak and commercialised. This cd is now part of my favourite metalcore cd's and their new album is sounding very good from the few tracks i've heard so far.
If you are approaching this album after hearing 'Opposite of December' then like most you're in for a slight shock. There's far more melody and a much wider vocal range but its all executed with vigour, so it doesn't sound commercialised, but emotional. The drum work is very insane and powerful, almost hypnotic in places.
All in all this is a very fine cd. The best tracks have to be tracks 1, 3, 7, 8 and 10 with tracks 2 and 5 close behind. Track 9 is a 1minute interlude and track 6 is a sappy ballard. 8 tracks out of 10 can't be bad.

Compared to the opposite of December this is a softer album, the vocal range of Jeff the lead singer has greatly improved and this is well demonstrated on the album, he has the ability to scream mentally then turn it into a melodic sing in the space of a second. There are no particularly stand out tracks on the album, the greats of artists rendering of me and slice paper wrists are not repeated on this album. I was expecting to be amazed by the album due to all of the hype and the sheer brilliance of December, I was not disappointed but I was neither amazed. If you are just getting into the well then I recommend buying the opposite of December and the first album distance makes the heart grow fonder. There is also the inclusion of an acoustic track on tear from the red called horns and tails which to be honest is a waste of a track, Jeff does have the voice to pull it off well but it sound empty and lifeless compared to the rest of the album which at times is quite intense, the lyrics for this track are also very poor. I am not saying that you should not buy this album because it is still amazing, however I personally was expecting a bit more.

if you loved the opposite of december this really isn't going to disappoint you. the production is the same, the lyrics are just as beautiful and the riffs are still as hardcore yet melodic. botchla is a quality first track, and while a couple of letdown mediocre tracks (rings from corona, karsey street) exist, theres still the sheer brilliance of sticks and stones never made sense and the acoustic horns and tails. the artwork is wicked as well. :)

PTW does it again 21 Mar. 2002
By "glassjawfanatic" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The reviews I've read so far have said things such as "they've gotten more melodic", (and my favorite)"I am a fan of PTW, but this CD just has too much screaming and sounds like noise." For whoever is saying its gotten more melodic, you're right. PTW has gotten more melodic, but they are maturing. "Tear from the Red" still contains the same hardcore stuff that was in "Opposite of December." Just look at the more melodic aspect on "Tear from the Red" to be a something great your getting WITH the hardcore stuff that we all have grown to know and love from Poison the Well. And for whoever said your a fan, but this cd had to much screaming on it... This cd contains just as much screaming as the old stuff, so how did you arrive at being a fan if you don't like the screaming? I mean, screaming is about 95% of what Poison the Well does, and if you can't apreciate that, then there's no hope for you in Poison the Well fan-hood.
Stand out tracks are "Moments Over Exagerate", "Sticks and Stones Never Made Sense", and "Horns and Tails" is great (very emo) but is different from the earlier stuff PTW has done.
Inconclusion, this band's sincere lyrics and hard hitting riffs are what make them great. This is a must own for any PTW fan.

...and its good!!!! 19 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I really don't know why some people are complaining about this cd. I read reviews, and some people are calling PTW sellouts or that this album isnt real poison the well...i think these people are on crackballs to say the least. First off, anyone who has listened to "opposite of december" and "tear from the red" more than once can clearly see that their sound has not changed all that much, yet i find "tear from the red" is a much tighter record. The same formula is present on both cd's but "TFTR" definetly represents a much more focused sound. Also, to clear up the confusion, the song "horns and tails" is an acoustic "dashboard confessional" type, slow song that is completly different from the rest of the record and while, yes, it may not be for everyone, the track does not have to be listened can skip eh...
Also, this band does not sound like incubus, the beginning of track 5 sounds like the "wish you were here" intro for about 8 seconds and thats it. So in retrospect, all the "flaws" that people complain about in other reviews are really not part of the record all that much, they account for about 3 minutes of the record..the rest is all classic poison the well. you really don't hear people complain about the other 8 songs on the album, beacsue they all rip! Its one thing to notlike poison the well, but to say they sold out is really stupid...really really stupid....go get this album, its excellent.

one of the greatest ever 26 Mar. 2004
By Ben - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was reading these other reviews that some other people wrote, and i was literally getting extrememly angry and sick at the same time. this is an EXCELLENT CD!! they say it isnt hardcore enough and i cant even express how wrong that assumption is. I thank god everynite for the songs 'Sticks and Stones, Rings from Corona, Botchla, all so hardcore. Buy it, SO worth it

but i adore 6 Feb. 2006
By M. Gutowski - Published on
Format: Audio CD
...this album. great progression from the last album. i have trouble understanding why people love the first album and hate the two that follow. each album is great, and each album is an evolution of the band. if i want to hear opposite of december i'll listen to that album. open your eyes, disregard any feedback by other people, and listen to this album for itself, and in fact it's another great release by a great band.

also, it's really cool that the album begins and ends on the same chord: much like a cycle. could this imply anything? that this album was reflective of the time it was written, that it is a separate idea from the album before and any albums following.

a very solid and inspiring album 28 Aug. 2002
By John webb - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album before the opposite of december and even though i like the first one better this is still a very good buy. My favorite songs are turn down eliot rings form carona and horns and tails... yes. I always liked balance of hard and so sick of all these narrow minded hardcore fans. if a band does not change styles...well even the deepest pool stagnates without action. i kind of miss some of the faster songs. but the emotional element of the music is alot more present.. vocals have improved greatly. and i like the touch on karsey street. its distrubing as hell...the lyrics are very thought provoking as well. i refuse to use the term emo when talking about poison the well. emo is syrupy music with sometimes monotonous vocals... that really arent so emotional. and the whole fashion thing is such a joke. if you want emotion listen to shun or glassjaw or dredg bjork or... poison the well. these kids clearly have it together and its not hard to see that they listen to a wide variety of music. i hear deftones all over the riffs. but since deftones couldnt think of them poison the well is at an advantage. while having influence they are still their own biggest influence and it is really hard to find a band that sounds much like them. all im saying is that this cd is great. while not having all the tempo changes that opposite of december had. it has its moments. i really enjoyed how the lyrics to horns and tails were negative and the song seemed almost playful.... it didnt even have a chorus now thats good song writing. the best way to describe poison the well is like incubus that has been in hell for the longest time... theyre like someone who smiles at you and hides a knife behind their back. in truth the only real let down is the length..on both albums. all of you so called hardcore kids open your minds and ears and shut your mouth... not all music has to be screaming to be apreciated and not everything emotional is whiney. and the term emo should be banished to the pits of sub genre hell from whence it came. thats my peice.
