"The Fear is Excruciating, but Therein Lies the Answer is Red Sparowes' 4th studio release, and it delivers across the board well beyond expectations. The complex progression and dynamic energy in this album is so fluid, so precise yet natural, you’re almost forced to believe it’s a living, breathing, sonic force. Add to that the chameleon qualities of this album and its ability to fit any mood you’re in. One song can either help you celebrate great joy or reaffirm you through a brooding depression."
Slightly less epic (and less boring) than their previous stuff, "The Fear Is Excruciating" shows a much more dynamic and progressive metal structure, often reminiscent of Isis.
