Entertainment Weekly (11/18/94, p.106) - "...Alison Shaw's previously unintelligble shrieks are nearly decipherable, and the unsettling soundscape approaches a clarity that is almost--gasp!--commercial.

On this evidence, it seems so..."Alternative Press (1/95, p.57) - "...Cranes play a broad spectrum of post-punk that finesses onto classical terrain with thick, slow cellos and simple piano phrases.

After the Cure whisked them off on a world stadium tour, they discovered the joys of melody and ceased gurgling darkly..."0.1763624

Rolling Stone (7/13-7/27/95, p.109) - 3.5 Stars out of 5 - "...Fugazi have branched out musically and chilled out lyrically; they've added jazzy piano, dub-style bass and percussion, psychedelic guitar and even a snaky Middle Eastern-style melody to their palette....RED MEDICINE is rock solid, held together with seductive hooks, hummable melodies and on over-arching continuity..."Spin (9/95, p.111) - 7 - Flawed Yet Worthy - "...it's hardly a post-hardcore band anymore. Fugazi is turning into groups it likes. RED MEDICINE is full of minimalist Unrest pop strumming, fragmented Shudder To Think art rock, and Jawbox explosions from melody to noise. The album sounds like a D.C. compilation..."Alternative Press (8/95, p.87) - "...draws lines that are clear and thick, distinctly separating itself from the latest slew of derivative indie-rock records....a complex hybrid of melody, noise, and the sound of guitar strings stroked above the fretboard, Fugazi's trademark leaves you unable to draw comparisons..."Option (7-8/95, p.89) - "...The band's material has never been better. While even Fugazi's best album, the hard-charging REPEATER, came off as headlong blur, the strongest songs on RED MEDICINE jump out from their intricately varied backdrop..."Melody Maker (5/6/95, p.38) - Recommended - "...a massive leap--reinventing themselves without losing one notch of the energy and intensity that makes them so damned crucial...they have leapt away from the stifling hardcore straitjacket that could have choked them....Hell, there's even a trumpet in there...surprises everywhere..."Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.114) - "...wild and untamed in the cussed Yank enclosure, Fugazi stamp their hooves and toss their tails as tautly as ever on RED MEDICINE....axes grinding, Mackaye and Picciotto in full cry, the Caucasian answer to Chuck D and Flavor Flav - this band has no peers."NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #49 in NME's `Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995 - "...mix barbed eloquence with passion, pain, frustration and a uniquely warped Fugazi-take on various musical genres."0.1007785
