Perhaps you should hate on Baroness a little more, just for good measure.

I was in agreement more with last year's list I believe. This one has a lot of stuff I just don't care about at all. But it also has two fantastic albums on it, so I won't complain. Also, I dig the non one-dimensionality of this site. Lots of different interests afloat. That's a good thing.

^ Pretty much agreed. Snaps to Piggy, Baroness & Pallbearer especially.

Thanks again to my son Manks for doing this.

I completely agree with that first sentence.

Also, new Pig Destroyer was fantastic!

Yep. Bought that just before Christmas after finding Wrath pretty boring and everyone said the new one was great.

It's not; it's still boring.

Yea, I was wondering if I was the only one who thought that. I tried it a few times and it was just incredibly boring. Absolutely nothing from that album stood out for me at all. Especially after as good as Wrath was.

The new Lamb of God was so boring I couldn't even bring myself to give it a second listen.

People who love the new trippy/folky/interlude laden Baroness calling LOG boring... WOW! I feel like I'm in the twilight zone.

I will admit some songs on Y&G finally clicked with me but there are only 4-5 songs that would possibly crack a Best of Baroness cd for me.

LOG has 5 songs that also would make a Best of for me. Ghost Walking is amazing, Straight to the Sun is one of the heaviest songs released in 2012, Undertow is a great f'n song and Desolation and Number 6 are also strong.

There's a good 25 minutes of filler on Baroness for me. Some songs are unlistenable actually. To each his own I guess.

And to answer the Hipster reference. A guy at my job who's favorite band is Dave Matthews comes up to me and says have you heard this great new band Baroness? They're like Kings of Leon meets Yes. Need I say more...

Okay.

Let's say - hypothetically - this Best of Baroness CD has over 12 tracks. 19 tracks even, which is still somewhat of a stretch. 4-5/19 is still about a quarter of the CD; let's keep in mind Baroness have another two studio albums. Even if both Blue and Red are represented more than Y&G, 4-5 is still a good number of songs. If it's 10-12 tracks (like the Alice in Chains Greatest Hits CD I've been listening to this past week), that's possibly HALF of the CD.
