Red Light Juliet 2 Review

This is the second installment in the Red Light Juliet series by Weerd Science.  Weerd Science is the side of rap project of Josh Eppard of Coheed and Cambria fame. This is our first ever video review, so it might be a little rough.  Let us know what you think and here it is!

One Track that I didn’t get a chance to talk about in the video is “Misery Loves a Record Company.”  I really like this track and think it gives a good look at what is happening in music today.  Not too many artists are brave enough to really tell the audience what it is like being a musician and how you can be taken advantage of.  Props to Josh and the rest of Weerd Science for really letting the listener know, and even backing it up with actual stats.

Track Listing:

  1. It Went To Albany
  2. The Man With No Audience
  3. Misery Loves a Record Company
  4. A Whole Haunting
  5. Sleep 2
  6. Steady Straight Lights/Sudden Dark Turns
  7. The Dinner Party
  8. Gangsta Dreamz
  9. Other Shit
  10. Greater Than You Are
  11. Outro

Favorite Tracks:

* Gangsta Dreamz

* The Dinner Party

* The Man With No Audience

* Misery Loves a Record Company

My final verdict is almost the same as when I first listened through the album.  This is a very strong album, but now I love so many of the songs on it.  While I miss some of the catchiness of previous works; I completely can dig the depth of these songs.  Weerd Science talks about some very personal moments and really give the listener and glimpse into where life can take you, and how it feels.  I love the introspective nature of many of these songs, and I think that makes it much stronger.  If you want to stop listening to mainstream rap that all sounds very similar, take a chance on a real genuine artist like Weerd Science.  Below is a video for one of the songs on the album.

  1. Weerd Science is the shit because it’s real, honest and relevant. Josh puts his personality into his lyrics, you never feel like he’s just trying to make a buck, you feel what he’s trying to say. @cyndifferous

  2. This album has a raw feel to it that really helps you appreciate Josh and his work as a musician. Its raw and real and makes it a strong listen!

  3. It’s real, raw, and relatable. Each installment is better than the last. The music is constantly changing and evolving in a positive way. The latest is no different. Superb.
