Baronness - Cake Frosting Diarrhea Discussion Thread

I have not bought this yet but I have not heard good things about it. Shit like they got way too flowery and what have you. Fans opine here. Is this worth my time or should I turn my back and hope the voice of Ghost's singer grows a pair of balls?

I like it. It's mellow for sure but unless you're a slave to the stupid mentality that brutality and heaviness is the only redeeming quality of music then you should try it out.

From what I've heard, it sounds amazing.

The thing I loved about Baroness (or at least their first two records) was they were a modern metal band but with all the classic metal trimmings: singing over Randy Blythe vocals, guitar solos etc. I didn't really like alot of the soft flowery moments on Blue Record but there were just enough so the whole thing tipped over. From what I gather the album is 3/4 that and 1/4 of actual metal (or at least Red Album style metal).

If you listened to the Blue Album, you could tell they'd be heading in a different direction, so personally, I don't understand the surprise about the style change. Its still distinctly Baroness, its just a bit different from their previous output. Personally, I love it.

True. It's just when I read shit like this from critics:

If you enjoy your doom/stoner/groove rock spoon fed to you, well, get ready to scratch your heads and stare at Yellow & Green like a dog that has been shown a card trick.

That's a red flag indicating the album is going to suck hard.

There's also this quote from a former member from a long time ago:

Ah, jeez...yeah, some of the reviewers don't get it. Just go into it with an open mind and make up your own opinion. You may love it, you may hate it. On the bright side, if you hate it, you still have the old albums.

It's my favorite Baroness album. Come at me fagets.

I don't quite think that candor is necessary.
