Album #11: Baroness - Yellow & Green
July 17, 2012
This has been a controversial album but I don't have a real strong opinion on it. I haven't listened to it a ton and I don't have any of their older stuff so I'm just kinda taking it for what it is on the surface. My favorite tracks are March To The Sea, Sea Lungs, and Take My Bones Away. A few of the tracks annoy me a little stylistically and I suspect these are the same suspects who many other people find fault with.
This isn't a bad album but it didn't set the world on fire for me and I'm not a huge fan of the band or the style but I enjoy it when I'm in the mood for something like this. The cover is really good and I love the title Cocainium. I think I like the yellow half more than the green half.
I'll give it a 7.7. It's good but it's not a regular listen for me.
