We gave it a B+

Tempering the relentless ferocity of their ’97 debut (just a bit), the photogenic British quartet 3 Colours Red offer something for almost everyone on their rousing follow-up Revolt: headbanging shout-alongs (”Paralyse”), spacey classic-rock riffage (”Paranoid People”), and the most sumptuous power ballad since Jon Bon Jovi cut his hair (”Beautiful Day”). Nirvana and the Clash throttle Oasis? Better yet, a Bush it’s okay to adore. B+
