iTunes Review

Baroness audaciously moves far beyond the conventional confines of metal on its third album, Yellow & Green. This two-disc set (the latest in a series of color-themed releases from the Georgia quartet) incorporates an amazing array of hard and soft sonic textures as it freely shifts between delicate interludes and harrowingly heavy passages. “Twinkler” and “Cocainium” shimmer with Fleet Foxes–like vocal harmonies, while “Take My Bones Away” and “Board Up the House” flex the group's rock biceps with brutal riffage and slamming drumwork. Baroness knows how to delve into prog-rock complexity (“Psalms Alive”), ride currents of overdrive guitar (“Sea Lungs”), and settle into the misty shoals of melancholy folk (“If I Forget Thee, Lowcountry”). What binds these sprawling tracks together is the lyrics' pervasively ominous mood, hinting at psychic crises and societal chaos with imagery recalling Pink Floyd at its most alienated. Songs like “Eula,” “Collapse," and “The Line Between” lace their darkly surreal visions with undercurrents of irony and spiritual longing.

A transcendent masterpiece

Don't be fooled by the naysayers - despite the initial shock over hearing some of the softer tracks on Yellow & Green, there is no denying that, after repeated plays, this album proves itself to be a natural and clear progression from the hard rock crossover appeal of Blue Record. There are certainly some forays into uncharted territory for Baroness - check the thumping, disco beat in "Cocainum" and the sunsoaked roots rock of "Board Up The House" - but the bulk of the material here simply finds the band further exploring all the wonderful idiosyncrasies that made the Red and Blue Records so irresistable. "Take My Bones Away" is easily Baroness's hardest hitting single to date and "March To The Sea" could be the track that finally lifts Baroness from underground metal heroes to undisputed radio rock royalty. The album's greatest strength, however, is the way it works as a full piece. Does the second disc need to have three instrumental tracks on it? Probably not. But in listening to the whole record from beginning to end, it is hard to deny its immense power and immersive brilliance. This is rock music unabashedly aiming for transcendence -and that alone makes Baroness one of the most exciting bands around today.

nope...

I kept waiting for the hammer to drop.....never happened. This might have been better as a side project, not under the Baroness herald. Soft attempt.

A Divergence of Genre

This is one of my favorite albums of at least the last 10 years, if not ever. Apparently it came out in 2012, but I only caught onto it early 2014. Prior to this record I really thought Baroness was just another Mastodon wannabe. Not bad, but nothing really stood out to me. After my first listen, I noticed that the first 6 songs really delivered and kept me interested through the remaining 12. I immediately wanted to listen to “Cocanium” again for the Zeppelin-esq guitar hook and organs. This song really hits hard. All 6 of these songs with their powerful vocal harmonies and effect driven guitars really stick with you. None more so than the haunting “Twinkler” which solidifies the divergence of genre that this album represents. The second half of this album really kicks off with one of the biggest snare reverb sounds I have ever heard in “Green Theme” and follows with some amazing vocal harmonies in “Board Up the House”. As with some of my other positive reviews there is not a bad song on either album. I recommend listening cover to cover when you have some time to really chill and enjoy some great musicianship. Well done, classic, masterpiece.
