""You Don't Need This..." review by James Hudson Taylor"

"...the first time I heard it I was already humming along and nodding my head."

The Scarlet Paradigm just dropped their self-released EP, “You Don’t Need This…” and you can download it off their website at

These guys have come a long way from playing Linkin Park and blink-182 cover songs out of a garage to playing shows at clubs and bars in Southern California. This brand new album showcases the many different styles of music they play, but you’ll have to listen to it yourself to understand what I’m talking about. My favorite track by far is Demonize because from the first time I heard it I was already humming along and nodding my head.

My suggestions to TSP would be to work on trimming down the length of some of the tracks. It felt like they were trying to stretch the songs, or aiming for a specific time. Also, the vocals need to be turned up or the instruments need to come down because it seams a bit overpowering.

In conclusion I’d like to encourage everyone to come out to the next TSP show on January 30th and download this album!
