Colors-II-Between-The-Buried-And-Me


Between the Buried and Me – Colors II

We live in a time where sequels and call-backs are done to death. Take your artistic medium of choice and witness the litany of hackneyed cash-grabs attempting to tug on your nostalgic heartstrings. On the boldly stated Colors II, Between the Buried and Me buck the trend and deliver on the promise of following up an all-time classic. As a standalone, this album is a gigantic, progressive gymnastics routine packed to the absolute gills with instrumental mastery and compositional/genre fuckery, the likes of which we’ve rarely seen. Taken as another rainbow block of molded clay to be affixed onto their 2007 construction, what we have here is a balls-to-the-white-walls two-part epic that reframes their entire sprawling discography. No matter where you lie along the prog metal appreciation spectrum – this deserves your ears, if only as a reference point for what’s possible. – Inoculaeted

Ironic that this has an average scored flagged review, didn’t make the best new music slot of the site yet somehow garnered enough of the user base to win a polled popularity contest to grab that album of the month spot.

Thanks Sitar. I’m finding it amusing how much hate this band draws around here. As a long time fan they blew my expectations way out of the water and I wanted to encapsulate that feeling with a slab of ridiculous hyperbole, as befitting the nature of prog.

DrGonzo - Thanks for the comma-fication. Those fuckers never make my final cut. Also thanks for setting your own opinion aside. Must’ve killed you to proofread this considering you think it’s sucks lol. Class act.
