I didn't say they fucked up. I said I don't like it and that it's boring. I'm sure they did expect that kind of reaction too, any time you have a metal band who is trying to break into a bit of a different genre, usually that means incorporating more mellow/acoustic/soft elements into the music, and when your fan base is made up of people who want heavy/fast/chaotic music, it's going to cause a divide. I, for one, know what I like. I don't like Yellow & Green. Does it mean I won't listen to another Baroness album? Nope. I just won't listen to this one very much if at all.
