The new Gojira album was disappointing. It's not really that it's bad, it's just nowhere near as good as the last two albums. There aren't any songs that come close to the awesomeness that is Backbone, Heaviest Matter in the Universe, Toxic Garbage Island, etc. I'm going to listen to it more to see if it grows on me, but as of now it's not high in my rankings like I expected it would be.

Optimism...try it sometime.

EDIT: These aren't that great in terms of quality, but they should give you an idea. I know at least one of these songs is posted in HQ on YouTube.

March To The Sea

Take My Bones Away

EDIT2: OK, so the second one isn't great. I do like "March" a fuckload, though. It could easily have been on Blue Record.
Eh I've heard them both and I don't like either of them. I disagree that March sounds it could've been on Blue Record. Way too poppy to be on that record.

I agree. Their screaming vocals aren't bad either and they have some talent, but the vagcore clean vocals kill the whole thing.

Note: Vagcore is a term I use to describe bands that use the incredibly whiney clean vocals that 13 year old girls tend to worship (i.e We Came As Romans, A Skylit Drive, Like Moths to Flames).

HOLY SHIT!!! Everyone needs to check out Soen - Cognitive! It sounds like Tool! Well a softer Tool, like mixing Tool with the softer Opeth songs...

OK after listening to it a couple of times this week, twice today being to most recent. I have to say the new Baroness is terrific, blows The Hunter and Spiral Shadow completely out of the water. Reason I'm comparing it those is all three were southern sludge bands that went a more accesible route wheater it was intentional or not. I really do believe in Baroness's case thats it wasn't, you could liken it almost to Opeth and Heritage. It's just the record John needed to make at this moment, and while it definetly is not metal it's 100% Baroness. The yellow half of the album is easily the best part and worth attention alone. All tracks on it are solid and flow really great together. I love how they seemingly blend all of these different genres and eras of rock together and still have that Baroness edge. Like on Little Things which sounds alot like something Killing Joke or The Cure could have done. Or Sea Lungs that has that 90s alternative grunge feel. Cocainium sounds like something from the mind of Josh Homme and Eula is Floyddian all the way. The green half is where the album drags though and seems to get really bloated. Most of it is either folkish style stuff or indie experimental crap. Save for a couple cool songs like Board Up The House or The Line Between that sound like Torche could have written them. It gets a great rating from me though just for Yellow and the stuff I dig on Green. I will right a in depth review in a couple of days when I get all of my opinions on it down. Which I will post here but for now I thought Id share my thoughts.

This is a milestone: This is the first time I've ever read a really positive review and it pretty much confirms my thoughts that the album is garbage. Experimental folk and songs that sound like The Cure on a Baroness album

Really this is the only positive thing you've read on Yellow & Green? All I've seen so far are mixed to positive. With the majority being somewhat positive. I think if you came across this as not coming from the same band you might enjoy it. Seems like you're judging it to hard on their other albums. From what you post I know you enjoy some good rock and this is exactly what this is. Beats radio shit by fucking miles.

That mini-review has me excited for the new Baroness. I doubt I'll like it as much as Red or Blue, but I think Baroness has the ability to experiment with genres like alt rock, indie, and folk and still make it feel like Baroness. Thought I was initially disappointed by the first two released tracks, I will admit I am digging them now. Which brings up the question are March and Bones on Yellow, Green or one on each?
