“Release the Panic expands upon their patent sound with a more immense and immersive scope. …on the first single ‘Perfect Life,’ they carry a massive stadium-size refrain into crossover territory while‘The Moment We Come Alive’ sails to divine heights on a tender piano and vocal crescendo. All said and done, it’s oneof the most epic, entrancing, and engaging hard rock albums of 2013 and RED’s best work yet.”
