a nine? everyone I know loves this album. what's wrong with me, i think this is like a four at best, but then again I dont like anything that wasnt recorded inside a black metal musicians jerk.
If you expect this album to rock...it doesn't
why would I listen to an album where apparently the best part of the record is 35 seconds into the first song? wouldn't that mean the rest is a letdown?
love this band but i just can not get into this record.
Great band, but this album really could have been better. A 7 at the most.
great review.....keep up the good work soldier
I think it's time to call a moratorium on the term "southern-fried" when describing music -- it's overused and it makes no sense.
one of the most fantastic, solid, complete albums i've ever heard. best of 07. i hope good things come to this band.
I don't like this one nearly as much as one or two, but it still f*cking slays 99% of this years other metal releases.
Love this f*cking record vocals are really strong I think.
great review. one of my top 3 or '07 for sure.
agreed on Son of Sun being their best song by far. but i couldn't get into this album.
My name is Cory and I approve this message. Kick ass album. If I wasn't so f*cking busy, this would've been a Cory 9/10 instead of a Casey one. Either way, glad to see this record get its props.
this review seems to tread the line between the muck of the usual 'Goat reviews and the pretentiousness at the 'Fork. I like it.
i was so disappointed in this album. so much filler! it sounds like 3 great baroness songs unwinded into 10 mediocre baroness songs. music also seems dumbed-down, not as technical. drummer still brings the goods but the guitars and vocals are mediocre.
this album is a 7 at best. just doesnt do it for me. its the bastard son of some kind of mastodon/pelican drunken lovin' session. old stuff ripped way more.
Cory was too busy sucking c-cks to give this album a 9/10. Am I right, guys?
one of the best of '07 easily, along with Given To The Rising.
I'm not so hip on the review but this album is f*cking incredible. f*ck anyone who doesn't like it.
way overrated. I could barely listen to that mp3
saw both baroness and torche live.....god they suck...and baroness has a drummer that moves like a gay while he's playing.9/10????get real.
i seem like the only one who wasn't blown away by this. second > red album.
what am i missing? this shit is boring. i listened to this album a few times and not one moment grabbed me and made me want give it any more attention than i already wasted on it. this shit just plain sucks.
this album is the bigest disapointment of 2007.
terrible. this album got a ton of press, but they for sure to not, do not deserve it. there are better bands that deserve the press. relapse, stop wasting your money!
nice album but waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy overrated...
Love this album, but a 9 is pushing it and pretty confusing when you seemingly follow each pro with a con. Oh yeah, and this record is a little more than just Rays on Pinion.
after reading this review i was expecting this CD to be killer (with the 9 rating) and personally i find it extremely boring.
the vocals make me want to shit on my own ears so I dont have to listen anymore. Its like a mix between fear factory and newer Mastodon vocal styles, expect not in key or good. Just do art John, your band is lame
this album is so disappointing and boring...moving to another label ruins another great band
To the Negative Nancys here: If you don't like this record that's all well and fine, but if you're going to take the time to post a negative comment at least put some sort of thought into it instead of just some juvenile one liner reaction (oh wait...I just realized where I am). This record really isn't all that bad, it just can't be viewed through the lense of being a "metal" record, this is more of a meandering heavy rock album than anything else that has some good moments. I mean let's get re
i take it you never listened to everything they released before this.
"i take it you never listened to everything they released before this." If this is in reference to my comment: I take it you skimmed my post, read again. I saw this band when they started early on years ago several times while living in VA. I own their old shit and bought them at the shows.
What what what? No one making fun of the reviewer? Could this be a LG first? Good review, good album, good reviewer.
good album, but 9's don't get old after a few spins.
You give this album a nine but yet give The Between The Buried and Me a six what is wrong with you f*cking people this band f*cking sucks has like the worst band name ever called Baroness. If the Red Baron was listening to this album he would commit sucide not even pull out his parachute.
BTBAM are f*cking overrated and lame, try listening to something else besides metalcore gay-t-ts. Baroness kills live.
lol @ kid who thinks BTBAM is better than Baroness. This record ain't a 9. I miss old Baroness, not that this is horrible or anything. but First >>>>>
Between The Buried and Me isn't Metalcore. Besides this album and the guys voice is horrible and doesn't even sound good at all. I would take Despised Icon over these motherf*ckers any day of the week
"Between The Buried and Me isn't Metalcore" HAHAHhaha... "The Pope isn't Catholic"
their shining moment??? kidding u r. Not their best, the early stuff was where its at. Most bands that have an early effort that is worthy seem to always shit the bed. This is that kind of album. I'm going now to listen to the new HOF, they have not fallen which is more i can say of most heavy bands.....
It just amazes me sometimes you people have a lousy taste of bands sometimes, except for when you reviewed Engineer now thats a good band.
Your taste in terrible run of the mill bands that no one will care about in 10 years like BTBAM amazes me. Although I agree Engineer is good but Botch was better.
I'm pretty new to Baroness, and I dig. I completely agree that the older material is much better, but I really enjoyed this too. I think a 9 is a bit high, this is something you kind of need to be in a certain mood to listen to, but good stuff nonetheless.
what f*cking riff? its just 3 ambiguous hums at :035
This album has grown on me-- a lot-- since first listen. The Sword may have been over-hyped, but I still heart them. Like, lots.
Reviews are somone's biased opinion so everyone stop get so heated and negative about a review you don't like. Half the people on here would get ripped to pieces if they tried to review a cd. Baroness is the shit. But not to everyone.
This album is disappointment. It lacks the heaviness and solid riffing of the first two ep's. Most of the songs tend to bleed into one other, and nothing truly stands out. Their split with unpersons is killer, and captures that Baroness sound I appreciate. The talent is there, but the execution on "Red Album" was flawed.
the vocals are truly grating. not in a good way either.
Baroness knows Destro's Secret! This album is t-ts. I want to f*ck Baroness. She had that monacle and black hair, and a pair of soft breasts. much better ass than Scarlet's or even Jinx's. She looks like that porn star Belladonna. If you think this album sucks then shame on you. Go up there and tell that nigga i want a chicken sandwich and some waffle fries! for free!
quite possibly one of the best albums i have ever listened to
