Redefine the Rockstar -Volume Five (3:16 Productions) - Back

"Redefine the Rockstar" is a compilation CD series that showcases independent bands from all over the United States. This 3:16 Production release is the fifth volume of the series. The CD compilation is a great idea, but generally the music is average and the quality of the recordings are average or worse. So basically this is a compilation of demo songs. Not all songs are that badly produced, but a handful are. The bands that are featured on "Redefine the Rockstar" are in the louder side of music, including Punk, Hardcore and Metal, so you can see that this disk is pretty diverse it its nineteen tracks and seventy-one minutes. There was a couple songs that I liked and they included Putrid Flowers with "If I Could Just Make It On My Own" and 20 Oz. Nothing with "CDG." There were some other decent songs on the disk but the production kept me from mentioning them. Volume five is better then some of the past CD's, but it still isn't attention grabbing as it could be.
