Considering Dave Matthews only attracts jam band people and frat-bro types I don't see any hipster correlation at all. Kings of Leon meets Yes? That guys sounds like he's just out of touch with current music.

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.
Good point.



LoG might be the best Pantera-clone around and they are heavy and whatnot and good live, but you gotta admit.... their last three or four records are all pretty much the same. They've got a good formula that they stick to.

I'm old school and still burn cd's. The average cd is 18-21 tracks. As someone who liked Red better than Blue and owns all the Baroness cd's my point was 4-5 songs off a cd that is being hailed as their best ever basically.

Also that's 4-5 songs out of 18 on Y&G. Not a good ratio.

As far as Dude being out of touch with music. Definitely. The comparison isn't that far off though. There are several new Baroness songs that sound more like Kings of Leon to me than old Baroness. maybe it's jsut me but the interludes and intros are annoying as fuck. It's just way too many for my liking. To each his own though...

As far as LOG, Straight to the Sun isn't like any other LOG song ever written so I don't get that same old Pantera clone argument. Great music is great music and when it translates well live, it's even better. Undertow and Ghost Walking were 2 of the 3 live highlights of 2012 for me.

Didn't listen to the new Baroness beyond March to the Sea, but I'm sure it was more interesting than the new Lamb of God. Ghost Walking is probably the worst song they've written to date and the rest of the record is just boring.
