PostSubject: Scarlet & St. Warren   Sun Apr 03, 2011 11:23 pm

I believe there was a thread last month about these two groups. Went ahead and purchased Scarlet and was not certain what to expect but ended up very pleasantly surprised. Following is the Angelic Warlord review: http://www.angelicwarlord.com/reviews/s/scarlet10.html

This leads us to St. Warren. Those of you who have heard St. Warren how would you describe the group? Are there lyrics in a similar vein as those of Scarlet? Which of the two St. Warren releases do you recommend?

Thanks,

Andy

Lyrically speaking, Scarlet is the better of the two. However, on the musical/production side, St. Warren is the better. Either of the St. Warren discs are worthy of purchase. While the faith of some of the members is still seen on the St. Warren discs, you won't be able to clock the JPMs on this release. They also have clean songs pertaining to relationships and other topics as well.

I have one of the St. Warren CDs.
I'm having doubts if I will order both released St. Warren CDs.

With nothing better to do on Memorial Day, I decided to stop by a nearby second hand shop. Of course, the first thing I always do is check out the used music section and was pleasantly surprised to see that someone had unloaded a collection of old hair metal CD's (I am sure you know where this is leading...).

Needless to say, I came across a CD by a group called St. Warren. St. Warren? That name rings a bell from somewhere... And then all of a sudden it came to me- this is the group from Florida that includes former Scarlet members Jeff McDonald (bass) and Jimmy Moore (drums).

I opened the insert and sure enough it is the same group! The CD is entitled "Honest Planet" and it is the ORIGINAL version from 1992 and not that re-issued on FNA Records several years ago.

In the liner notes they thank "GOD first" and have even re-recorded an old Scarlet tune ("Stop Runnin'").

It would be interesting to find out what it is worth. Also, perhaps it is time to write a review...

You struck lucky Dynamis. Our local stores never have anything of worth, at least not the last time I checked.

You are lucky to even have any stores. We used to have several shops that sold used. Now the only place we have to buy music is Wal Mart, Target, Best Buy, and Family bookstore. None of these carry anything but the flavor of the month. It is amazing how much the cd sections have gotten smaller in these places.

It's not really all that amazing that the music sections are shrinking. There is a huge push to get everyone to convert to digital whether it be for movies, music, or even books. Those sections will get even smaller in the next couple of years.

That is true, but I don't have to like it. Mad

There are a few pawn shops with nothing of any worth here, and the local Christian bookstore has exactly one Stryper album (and little much better).

For me, digital isn't perfect. I like the feel of physical copies.

I sometimes have good luck at a store called Half-Price Books. They usually have a lot of $2 cd's and every once in awhile you can find gems in there. Case in point, my very hard to find Ruscha cd that I got out of there. If you have one of those stores in your area, hit em up and see what you find. I remember many moons ago I was in a cd warehouse, it's a used CD store, and actually got both Barren Cross albums Atomic Arena and State of Control.

Here in the Phoenix area, we have Zia's Record Exchange, which has a good selection of new and used music (this is where I picked up Stryper's "The Covering"). Bookman's also has used CD's and vinyl.

But I agree that it is unfortunate that most retail outlets our doing away with physical CD's and the like. Because when you buy a new album it is not just about the music but the packaging as well- and the lyrics, liner notes and artwork that go along with it.

What a nice surprise was that for you Dynamis to find an original St. Warren CD.
