I actually like the song, I am a sucker for good melodies and that to me, is a damn good melody. it is weird to think it is the same band, but they are definitely evolving into a more pop-oriented sound.

Wizard hits some home runs and other time takes pitches to da face.

Song was pretty good, but too short.

Definitely liked it more than the other song they released. Still not completely on board with the new sound though.

Song does rule but I have the feeling that the new album is going to be "metal lite" just like Mastodon's The Hunter

If this is one on the singles off the album then i'm sure it's the more sing-a-long type song on the album. I'm sure the albums will still bring the heavy, or at least I hope it does.

Tmba has a lot more going on too, yeah. This song is catchy but suffers from the same problems that made Mastodon's The Hunter such an average album. I just hope the rest of the album isn't like that.

this proves that baroness can do no wrong in my books. this song was amazing live. i just love this band. and honestly can't see myself being all that pissed when hipsters jump on the bandwagon. except that hipsters generally fucking suck.

Met these dudes at a mexi restaurant in OK when they played with Deftones.

Had some drinks with them, ate some dinner, they were stand up dudes. I like this new song.

I like TMBA slightly more, but this is a great jam. It's like what Mastodon pulled, but it actually worked.

It's what I predicted a long time ago. Every notable sludge band will go pop now. The song is rad.

hahahah you don't have to apologize to me for liking music. I was a huge fan of Red Album and this plus Blue Record is them watering down their sound. Who knows though, I haven't heard the whole double album yet so I can't pass judgement past this.

This is one band I cannot get into no matter how hard I try. I just don't like them. Granted I havent heard the Red album. Only some of Blue and then these singles.

I love how the word 'pop' is blindly (or deaf-ly) thrown around nowadays. Pop is pop - this is not.

i'll just leave this here:

http://www.amazon.com/Yellow-Green/dp/B0089AF2DS/ref=tmm_msc_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1339599841&sr=8-1

it sounds like the pre-release tracks were a little bit misleading regarding what these albums are gonna sound like as a whole.

SPOILERS: it's actually gonna be even LESS metal than a lot of people are expecting. not that there's anything wrong with that though. liking the sound of some of those chiller-sounding samples.

I have accepted that I can't be metal all the time. I need a few bands like Baroness in my collection. At least this is a band that I love and I could play while getting laid and not have 75% of the female populace wanna walk out. It's a proven fact that very few girls I wanna hump, wanna hump me while listening to Prowler in the Yard.

Love the newer sound but it's kind of funny how they are following Mastodon's footsteps in their "evolution". Good shit nonetheless

That preview worries me. Sounded more like pop than rock. Probably won't be bad but it doesn't seem to have that drive that other baroness has.

people are still using the term "pop" to describe this sound, eh?

i take it none of these people actually LISTEN to any pop music, right?

i know enough about pop music to know that this inhabits a lot of traits from it. verse/chorus, clean production, etc.

lol, a song with a pop music song structure does not automatically make it "pop music".

"Pop" as in popularly accepted among the masses. Sounds like they did indeed lighten their sound that will most LIKELY attract new people to their music that normally wouldn't listen to them before. I think the term applies.

this is the way i see it: If i can't imagine something playing on top 40 radio, then it's not pop music.

I don't see this getting on top 40 radio.

Technically, pop music is music that isn't classified as art or folk (massive simplification but meh), so in that sense, pretty much all metal is pop.

After listening to this a few more times, I don't see the hype about the chorus. Blue had some choruses much bigger than this.
