3 stars The good thing about such concept is that it allowed The Dear Hunter to explore as musical styles as they were able to cramp into these (in total) 150 minutes. Orange explores energic emotions as well, but instead of more negative side (as Red is), it is the good side (like in use your force Luke), you can call it warmth. And as the story continues, Orange shows us exactly that. Bluesy tendencies rule this land, difficult to pinpoint one song that is the biggest relation to their previous work, this is very different, yet still you will feel familiar with it, somehow, not sure how.

3 stars 'Orange EP' - The Dear Hunter (6/10)

Although each of the 'Colors' in this nine-part capably stand on their own, 'Orange EP' feels much like a continuation of what was started on 'Red'. These two EPs offer the most straightforward rock experience of this entire concept. As a result, 'Orange' is one of the less memorable chapters, but as I have come to expect from The Dear Hunter, the music is consistent and enjoyable. For any newcomers to The Dear Hunter, their latest grand project as to write a nine part concept series about each color of the rainbow (and the two shades), and then write a few songs based on the feelings that the colors inspire. 'Orange' is a colour that shares the warmth of yellow and red, but lacks the passion or cheer of either, respectively. The music on 'Orange' captures this idea brilliantly. It takes the rock vibe of 'Red', and makes it upbeat. Bluesy riffs are commonplace here, and contrary to much of this band's work, the production is kept relatively straightforward. 'Echo' is a fine example of what 'Orange' is about; upbeat blues riffs playing underneath Casey Crescenzo's distinctive, theatrical vocal style. As one may have ascertained from the straightforward rock approach, this is the least involving album in the project, and I would say that it is my least favourite of the nine, although there's still good quality to these tunes. The songwriting is not particularly vibrant, but the production and execution is impressive enough to be worth an enjoyed listen or two.

3 stars The most ambiguous of the EPs. In all honesty, while the industrial sound was fitting for Black, and the fast aggressive sound was fitting for Red, Orange takes on a more blues-oriented sound. How does that color resemble Blues? I really don't know, which is why this is, out of all the ... (read more)
