Editors’ Notes

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.

Customer Reviews

Keep an objective, open mind

The negative reviews seem to be coming from listeners who have very narrow musical tastes, "It's not as good as this metal band, or this metal record, and it's not the same," and "The only people who appreciate this record are stubborn fanboys". Having such narrow taste in music can turn you into a musical fascist; you make too many demands from artists because you really want everything to sound exactly the same, and immediately familiar. This is especially true with metal and its fans, but also applies to hip hop, indie rock, and certainly progressive rock too. The point is, without an objective mindset, nothing will ever be satisfying. But if you expand your tastes, you'll begin to see beauty in music that you had previously missed. You'll become more objective, open minded, and excited about bands trying new things on different records. I also don't remember Baroness ever saying "we're a metal band", so instead of putting a label on them and making demands, why not insead let them define who they are with their music? It's better than slapping a "metal" label on a record and making demands before you ever even hear it.

In order to enjoy music, you have to broaden your vision of what music is and can be. Wanna enjoy hip hop better? Listen to Soul. Wanna enjoy metal better? Listen to blues. Wanna enjoy anything? Listen to everything. You'll still keep your own tastes, you won't lose your soul or be selling out, you'll further develop your unique musical opinions, and you'll become less demanding, less judgmental, less ignorant and certainly less disappointed with new ideas and less afraid of unknown musical territories.

I am not a Baroness fanboy by any means, but this record is excellent. This is their most focused, mature, experimental, bold album they've done. It's surprisingly mellow, but when it hits, it hits hard, with more bittersweet melodies than anything they've done. I would have preferred a few more heavier songs, but I'm sure once I give it more listens, it'll make much more sense. This record is going to be remembered an enjoyed for a long, long time.

Better than Zoolander dropping Magnum

This is so freakin good. Yes it's different from Red and Blue, I'm ok with that. Go back and listen to Zeppelin I, II, & III and see if they sound the same. I can't wait for my vinyl! Kudos for streaming this online guys. It shows you're proud of your work and you should be. Come back to Los Angeles real soon please!


Worth the wait! Simply amazing...

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Baroness play an eclectic brand of heavy metal, embracing the ferocity and sharp technique of new-millennium metal but with melodic accents and intelligent guitar work that suggest the influence of indie rock and post-punk bands. The four members of Baroness -- John Baizley on guitar and vocals, Brian Blickle on guitar, Summer Welch on bass, and Allen Blickle on drums -- are all originally from Lexington, Virginia, but they pulled up stakes and relocated to Savannah, Georgia, when they formed the...
