Album · 1995 · 13 Songs. After proving themselves the most rhythmically dextrous band in the post-hardcore underground, Fugazi became the most fearlessly eclectic with Red Medicine. Combination Lock is an irreverent mutant-funk strut, and the tunefully despairing Forensic Scene practically counts as a ballad. Although dub had always been in the band’s DNA, they fully embrace its freak-out potential on the stalking instrumental Version.
Retreating from the skinned-knee production values of In on the Kill Taker, Red Medicine packs more rhythmic punch and shows more range. With more drive and playful goings-on, the arrangements sound much looser than on Kill Taker, while remaining just as gut-kicking and brainy. The experimentation, which adds liveliness, doesn't sound measured. Even Joe Lally is allowed to sing, and it just happens to be one of the best songs on the record.

Red Medicine" is a NEW Fugazi, the sound of progress and experimentation. From the first moments of the record, the band clearly shows they are entering a new phase: "Do You Like Me"" is one of their most complex, and emotional tracks. Sure, the Lally bass lines are present and Guy's snarl is no more consistent than always but the feeling of the music has changed. Fugazi are far removed from the outcast lost boys of the hardcore scene and are now taking up the title of "alternative rock". Red Medicine's" highlights might not be as strong as Fugazi's previous records but the strength of the album as a whole is probably second only to "The Argument". Tracks like "Forensic Scene" leave the listener in a realm of black-and-white confusion in their blunt force and emotion. With "Red Medicine", Fugazi had harnessed their strengths to make their finest structured album yet.
