3.0 goodcjbizzlebizzle | July 23rd 18

Our Raw Heart has a lot of powerful moments but it also has a lot of filler that really makes the album needlessly long and at times even boring. This effort from YOB is downtempo, sombre sludge-doom metal that takes its time sticking to slower tempos and a melancholy atmosphere throughout the runtime. YOB get heavier in The Screen and Original Face, which are great standalone tracks that somehow get lost between the longer songs on the album. There is a lot of heart and passion in the three longest tracks and the vocalist does well to match the musical atmosphere but in the end these songs just go on and on without much sense of direction or purpose. YOB have all of the elements for greatness here but some condensation and songwriting focus are needed to make Our Raw Heart one to remember.

Bump

3.5 greatBRAman22 | June 27th 18

While there is certainly some fat that YOB would have done well to cut, their sludgy psychedelic take on doom still makes for an enjoyable listen.

3.0 goodmarf1300 | June 11th 18

YOB crafts a doom metal album skillfully blending sadness and pain with hope and beauty. However, the tracks linger too long and turn that pain and beauty into boredom. The closing track was the worst offender at 6 minutes longer than it needed to be.
