"Red" is the color of power, the color of romantic hearts, the color of broken hearts and bodies, the color of blatant lies, and the color that appears at various times in our lives. Episode 2 includes "RED EYE BLUES," the theme song for the Red Eye Committee, which has been popular at live performances for a while. Following on from the previous release, the album features the same great musical talents of Jun Abe as arranger and Jun Sumida as guitarist. Listening to the excellent pop song "Hey Taxi" with its bright piano and relaxed rock guitar, and tender and heartbreaking mid-ballad "Stars," you can feel a different charm from the previous album.
