They couldn’t release ‘Pink’ the same year Barbie came out?

Ok, I like it, but why he sung like the new wave of British post punk bands?

Best Baroness since blue!

*This statement may or
may not be true but I have no way of verifying since
you haven't actually been able to hear individual
instruments in the mix of a Baroness album in a
decade*

4.5 superbDwap | September 15th 23

After Purple and whatever colour the last one was, I ran out of hope for these guys. This however, rips, and has restored
my faith. Great album.

2.5 averageFrozenFirebug | September 23rd 23

Hypothetically, if you took away these guys' unilaterally garbage production and mixing, what are
you left with? All I hear on a regular basis is repetitive chugging riffs in one of the worst
guitar tones to ever exist, and droning, crooning, shrilly off pitch vocals haphazardly stretched
thin over by-the-numbers segues, which only fit together in the sense that both are terrible.
There is no interesting juxtaposition between the two, only discomfort and disharmony. No
texture. No tone. No atmosphere. No flair. No artistry. No showmanship. No emotion. No notable
riffs. No agreeable rhythm, nor impressive subversion of rhythm. The guitar, bass, and drums
never coalesce in any meaningful way whatsoever. Sound devoid of all. I'm starting to think they
make their music sound like shit on purpose to disguise the fact that they actually, sincerely,
suck at writing songs together. Like an ugly person trying to embrace their ugliness by making
silly faces at any given opportunity, to disarm any potential criticism on that front. This is
ugly music and there's no two ways about it. Well, if you're an absolute saint maybe you could
call it unconventionally attractive and come to love it. I won't judge. Could Baroness be saved
if they had some manner of creative director or handler? Yet to be seen.

3.0 goodWorst music taste on SputnikPeople could be easily fooled into thinking you are a troll but the grim | September 16th 23

Band has always been Mastodon lite, has some decent songs, but overall meh

4.5 superbTw1ster | September 15th 23

Agreed with the “best since Blue?” sentiment. It’s focused and concise and it’s nice to hear John bring back some of
those gruffer sounding vocals of early albums on a few of the songs. Also, does the solo in Last Word not sound like it
was recorded from the shitter?

4.0 excellentJDubb | October 15th 23

A solid outing from a seasoned band, which plays out as a story of two halves. First 5 tracks seem to fit nicely and lead into together, with tracks 2-4 being intricately prepared bangers. And the transition between Beneath the Rose and Choir is to die for. Second half includes good low country metal tracks that TBH - they could make in their sleep. So first half overwhelms, 2nd half somewhat underwhelms. But the production and mixing is great, which is much appreciated after the train wreck of G&G.

2.0 poorOldMystic | September 22nd 23

These two made me laugh so much I had to quote them. **Also, does the solo in Last Word not sound
like it was recorded from the shitter?** and **This statement may or may not be true but I have no
way of verifying since you haven't actually been able to hear individual instruments in the mix of
a Baroness album in a decade** Really though, this album is absolute toilet. Their trend of
atrocious album mixes continues. This one is truly disgusting.

3.0 goodajcollins15 | September 21st 23

The long-standing stoner and sludge metal outfit somewhat bounced back with their sixth album after an abysmal 2019 stoner rock album. They return to their heavy psychedelic metal vibes here and it works out decently well. Plus the small inclusion on various tracks of post-hardcore I think adds a whole lot of punch that the band really has not had in a long time. I?m still not the biggest fan of the band overall but the simplistic use of sludge and stoner metal guitar riffs makes for a pleasant listening experience.

Bump

4.0 excellentjmh886 | September 20th 23

This is great. I feel like production always held this band back a bit, but not here.

Bump

3.5 greatErwann S. STAFF | September 18th 23

Baroness deliver a very Baronesque album that never reaches their late nouhgties' maximalism, but this one does riff and whatnot.

Bump

4.0 excellentCamiloG | September 17th 23

Excellent record overall, aside from the hideous ?Choir?. I?d say one of the greatest improvements, in comparison with Gold & Grey, is the production. Gina?s input is definitely another highlight. Last Word, Anodyne and Under the Wheel are the highlights for me.

Bump

4.5 superbMeanshadows35 | September 17th 23

Best album in my opinion since Purple. Lost them on gold and grey didn't sit with me. Especially with how good purple was. But STONE fucking slaps hard!

Bump

3.5 greatGhostShelter | September 16th 23

Have listened through twice. It’s good. Great job on the production/engineering front this time. Sounds killer.
