Baroness is better than Mastodon. Check out First, Second, and Red if you haven't. If you've only listened to Yellow and Green you're missing out.

Yellow and Green were lame, imo. This sounds better, but I'm not too excited. I want Red pt. 2 and Blue pt 2. even if that is a shit thing to ask for.

This is one of the best songs the band's done.

Yellow & Green was fucking outstanding from start to finish.

Baroness is great.

I liked Baroness a lot better when they weren't trying to play alt rock. Typically kick-ass Baizley art work though.

Can't hear the song right now. Y&G was really good, a great introduction to their Mastodonesque sound. I hope for the best. Maybe this isn't a promising song (as some state) but last single was Take My Bones Away, which I didn't like, soo....

Mastodon, Baroness, and Kylesa were all pretty boss back in 2006-2009. It's been downhill from there.

The music is a bit too polished and clean (especially at the start) to mesh with the rough vocals...so then the only other problem is that these guys just write lyrics to have something to sing since they're absolutely meaningless.

id recommend you apply the goldbond liberally to your chapped crack bud

getting needlessly defensive isnt flattering. i like baroness just didnt like the last alb, so check your facts while you're at it too.

I still think Y&G was a bit underrated, it was very diverse and had so many great songs. Excited to see how this one turns out.

Y&G is disliked because they tried something different, which is something Metal fans have a low tolerance for.

Thought Y&G was really good and Red and Blue are definitely their best so far. I'm digging this track. I guess to some people linear means boring? lol

their lyrics werent this bad on red and blue tho like did baizley legit get brain damage or what? like, the lyrics sound like some swedish metal band with broken english trying to write in their second language. like in flames or arch enemy lyrics or some shit.

^^ I agree. Though I think their lyrics a bit too, dare I say, pop punk-ish now?

I don't know, his voice isn't that good either. But they have a knack for creating cool melodies and awesome riffs (occasionally). This record is sounding like Blue Pt. 2 IMO, which isn't really a bad thing.

You have me nodding again. Bar Eula, which is a really good song, that shit was so disappointing... I'm not expecting much from this tbh, but that last song and Chlorine & Wine sound pretty good, we'll see.

Shock Mes dope tho

Really? I wasn't very fond of Shock Me, probably because of the three songs it's the one that reminds me of Y&G. Morning Star sounds a lot like the opener for Blue, "The Sweetest Curse" (had to check cause I forgot the name lol)
