    While too many co-writers are often detrimental to an album, Red is pleasingly diverse-and more often stays true to the homespun, creative vibe of Frampton's previous releases.

    With Red, she pledges allegiance to no single genre.

    The great thing about Red is that Dia had a hand in writing every song, and it's that personal stamp that allows the album to appeal to longtime fans despite its musical direction.

    Ultimately, while Frampton is never allowed to settle into one aesthetic sound on Red--moving from electronic pop to dance-rock to folk-pop--her honey-sweet voice and emotionally compelling delivery are enough to carry you along for the ride.
