I'll have to listen to a few of these a couple more times. Some of Top 10 I'm a big fan of the bands and maybe had my expectations too high.

By far my least favorite Baroness and HoF efforts and both make the Top 10...

I can't really complain with the list, I guess, besides my biggest disappointment of the year getting in the top 10 (Napalm Death) and some other albums by bands I don't care for, but whatever.

Fuck Yellow and Green hard (Not going to bitch about that record any more than I have already, I just despise that record with a passion) and I've never listened to Pallbearer, but the rest of this list is either records I thought were decent (Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer), very good (Testament, Cattle Decap, Gojira), made my top 20 (Deftones, Converge, Every Time I Die, High on Fire, Death Grips), or from bands I don't dig, but respect highly (Rush) so I can't complain too much. I'm actually shocked that Every Time I Die made it in to the top 10 and BTBAM didn't. 11-20 are great too with a few more of my top 20 as well as The Electric Age and Torture (Which I didn't love, but it's definitely respectable).

As for EP's glad to see Revocation win the race to finish behind Agalloch and good to see Down make the top 5. Overall very good list imo, just a bit behind last year's list.

No offense taken, besides one of my high school friends, I'm the only dude I know who didn't like it. Well I think DethMaiden too.

Just saying Manks, it's not a terrible record, but it's my least favorite BTBAM record. Lots more circus wank and cliché progcore stuff. Lot of the brutal/heavy moments relay too much on chugging. But it seems I'm one of the few who perceives it that way. You can read about it in my year end thread if you want. I think it's still on the first page... :snivel:

Perhaps you should hate on Baroness a little more, just for good measure.

I was in agreement more with last year's list I believe. This one has a lot of stuff I just don't care about at all. But it also has two fantastic albums on it, so I won't complain. Also, I dig the non one-dimensionality of this site. Lots of different interests afloat. That's a good thing.

I completely agree with that first sentence.

Also, new Pig Destroyer was fantastic!

Yep. Bought that just before Christmas after finding Wrath pretty boring and everyone said the new one was great.

It's not; it's still boring.

Yea, I was wondering if I was the only one who thought that. I tried it a few times and it was just incredibly boring. Absolutely nothing from that album stood out for me at all. Especially after as good as Wrath was.

The new Lamb of God was so boring I couldn't even bring myself to give it a second listen.

People who love the new trippy/folky/interlude laden Baroness calling LOG boring... WOW! I feel like I'm in the twilight zone.

I will admit some songs on Y&G finally clicked with me but there are only 4-5 songs that would possibly crack a Best of Baroness cd for me.

LOG has 5 songs that also would make a Best of for me. Ghost Walking is amazing, Straight to the Sun is one of the heaviest songs released in 2012, Undertow is a great f'n song and Desolation and Number 6 are also strong.

There's a good 25 minutes of filler on Baroness for me. Some songs are unlistenable actually. To each his own I guess.

And to answer the Hipster reference. A guy at my job who's favorite band is Dave Matthews comes up to me and says have you heard this great new band Baroness? They're like Kings of Leon meets Yes. Need I say more...

Okay.

Let's say - hypothetically - this Best of Baroness CD has over 12 tracks. 19 tracks even, which is still somewhat of a stretch. 4-5/19 is still about a quarter of the CD; let's keep in mind Baroness have another two studio albums. Even if both Blue and Red are represented more than Y&G, 4-5 is still a good number of songs. If it's 10-12 tracks (like the Alice in Chains Greatest Hits CD I've been listening to this past week), that's possibly HALF of the CD.

Considering Dave Matthews only attracts jam band people and frat-bro types I don't see any hipster correlation at all. Kings of Leon meets Yes? That guys sounds like he's just out of touch with current music.

Good point.



LoG might be the best Pantera-clone around and they are heavy and whatnot and good live, but you gotta admit.... their last three or four records are all pretty much the same. They've got a good formula that they stick to.

I'm old school and still burn cd's. The average cd is 18-21 tracks. As someone who liked Red better than Blue and owns all the Baroness cd's my point was 4-5 songs off a cd that is being hailed as their best ever basically.

Also that's 4-5 songs out of 18 on Y&G. Not a good ratio.

As far as Dude being out of touch with music. Definitely. The comparison isn't that far off though. There are several new Baroness songs that sound more like Kings of Leon to me than old Baroness. maybe it's jsut me but the interludes and intros are annoying as fuck. It's just way too many for my liking. To each his own though...

As far as LOG, Straight to the Sun isn't like any other LOG song ever written so I don't get that same old Pantera clone argument. Great music is great music and when it translates well live, it's even better. Undertow and Ghost Walking were 2 of the 3 live highlights of 2012 for me.

Didn't listen to the new Baroness beyond March to the Sea, but I'm sure it was more interesting than the new Lamb of God. Ghost Walking is probably the worst song they've written to date and the rest of the record is just boring.
