Between The Buried And Me-The Great Misdirect
Throughout 2009 i didnt think that anyone would be able to top Mastodon for album of the year. For most of 2009 this statement seemed to be true but then Between The Buried and Me did that.
Between The Buried And Me follows their 2007 epic masterpiece Colors with an album that is even better. This band's precise and amazing musicianship is matched by very few in metal. Their willingness to experiment with different things and just push themselves musically is just one of the many great and unique things about this band. The 17- Minute closing epic Swim To The Moon is among their best songs and gave me the chills with its jaw-dropping clean vocals and sensantional solos.
Overall this is the best album of 2009 in my opinion. This album is excellent. Please check it out ASAP.
