Redd Kross serves great songs before any aesthetic and lets raw energy dictate where those songs should go.

83
A.V. Club

What’s left is the sound of surging, scrappy garage-pop outfit that may as well have been formed yesterday.

80
PopMatters

Researching the Blues shows a band making some minor adjustments to their sound, without losing the impact that their music conjures up.

80
Beats Per Minute

Researching The Blues isn’t the album to convert non-fans of Redd Kross, but it does manage to tie in with the rest of Redd Kross’ discography without sounding dated or out of touch.

71
Pitchfork

Redd Kross sound tighter and more energetic, even though their guitar tones have mellowed a little.

60
No Ripcord

Chemistry is never in short supply, but the 10 songs never feel like an Album so much as it does a collection of songs

60
Consequence of Sound

At its best, Researching the Blues is a thrilling reunion record, but, like most Redd Kross albums, the tracklist isn’t flawless.
