Imperative Reaction made their triumphant return in 2002 with “Ruined.” Touring in support of the record from 2002 to 2003, the band performed in front of capacity crowds and gained many, many new fans with the successful tour. Shortly afterwards, work began on a follow-up record. Taking nearly a year to complete, “Redemption” was established in early 2004. More aggressive than “Ruined,” the new album has a unified feel from start to finish. Each track compliments the next without any letdown, and every one of them could easily be a dance floor hit. Explosive beats, smooth programming, highly charged sequences, and vocals that accentuate the message in the lyrics make “Redemption” Imperative Reaction's greatest album to date. Imperative Reaction has finally come into their own. RECOMMENDED!
There have been few times where a song has matched my own emotional state as perfectly as this one. I nearly broke down crying in my car the first time I heard it because of how closely it's mirrored how I've felt dealing with the matter of handling my father's estate. There's no time to spend on the pain, so I've become much better at pretending to move on. firstname.lastname@example.org
