There's too much music out there for me to listen to to spend time on stuff I don't like.
The album clicked with me on my first listen. I pretty sure Baroness made this album knowing that not everybody was gonna like it. If the new direction isn't your thing that's fine but I don't think it's fair to say they fucked up because it seems to me that they succeeded in exactly what they were trying to do.
