Honestly, it just sounds like they're doing their progressive thing. I didn't like Collapse that much, but I was really digging Foolsong. Sounds like Explosions In The Sky with lyrics, or maybe even a mellower/jammier part of a BTBAM song. Me gusta.
Yup who would funk it. Another peeps bitching led me to discover a good band. Haha

I enjoy it quite a bit. Everyone shits on the Green side but the song Board Up The House is probably my favorite on the album. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss the heaviness but I'll continue to follow them cuz I think they're great songwriters and musicians.

I still have to listen to this a few more times but this album just bores me for the most part. I dig about half of what I've heard but the other half just sounds like uninspired crap to me.

Well they've gone from using softer material as preludes and interludes to the heavy songs to making it part of the main attraction. I can't be mad or call it teh gay but it's a little bit of a letdown.
I'm totally in love with the beginning and end of each record, but it especially drags for me in the middle of Green. Still haven't had a chance to totally absorb everything yet so I'll give it a few more listens. I'm also disappointed with what a song titled "Cocainium" ended up being on what's supposed to be the heavy disc.
Part of me wants to say "should have just made it a 50 minute album" since Yellow, Bones, March, Little Things, Sea Lungs, Eula, Green, Board Up, The Line Between and the outro are all killer.

Replace that with First, Second, and the the Unpersons split, and then you're talkin'.

I love the Blue Record, but I love this a lot more than I would if it were another Blue Record. I've still got the Blue Record to be the Blue Record.

Blue Record Blue Record Blue Record.

Seriously, "Psalms Alive" may be my new favorite Baroness song. And the least expected. The Green Record kicks ass.

I could see comparisons between "Foolsong" and "Collapse" to some strands in indie rock, but indie folk? They sound nothing like Fleet Foxes or Neutral Milk Hotel. (Is Neutral Milk Hotel "indie folk"?) More like Pink Floyd, really, or maybe certain songs by Flaming Lips. Whatever. Genre dogma is boring. It's a silly argument, and I already regret having picked it up. I'm gonna go back to listening to Baroness now.

Okay, in fairness, "Twinkler" actually sounds a LOT like Fleet Foxes. But that's on the Yellow disc.

And also, it's beautiful. I'd take it over, say, "Steel that Sleeps the Eye" anyday.

The needle drop did a pretty well-articulated review of this, if any of you are into Anthony Fagtano

I really like the Psalms Alive > Stretchmarker sequence.

I wish they'd put a few more instrumental tracks on this album.
