    It's been like 15 years or so since the last Redd Kross record, but with "Researching The Blues" they sound like never went away. Great melodic power-pop perfection that kinda rocks hard. Recommended!

    I'm not gunna lie, I've never heard of these guys before. That being said, this is my favorite album this year after Locked Down. Seriously good stuff.

    Researching the Blues is masterfully produced and keenly performed. [No.90, p.60]

    They're back with a glorious melange of influence that borrows from everywhere but combines to sound like no-one else on earth. [1 Aug 2012, p.54]
  3. Researching The Blues isn't the album to convert non-fans of Redd Kross, but it does manage to tie in with the rest of Redd Kross' discography without sounding dated or out of touch.
