    Pale Sun fucks, as the kids say, probably

    I understand their fans' complaints about the mix, but it didn't really bother me much at all, and I just flat out like these songs more than their previous material

    pretty sure I've given that one a go, but sometimes when I find material I like from a certain band it makes their previous stuff I may not have enjoyed too much click, so for you I'll check it out again

    What is wrong with you guys? Halfway through the new Baroness, sound is trash and so are the songs. Even took a couple hydrocodones an hour ago which usually means I can enjoy anything and all this album is doing is pissing me off.

    everything is wrong with me

    on the bright side though looking at my previous youtube searches it appears that green and yellow were the albums I had checked out, halfway through Red now and I'm proud to admit this is yet another case of me not knowing what I'm talking about because it's fucking great

    Alright holy shit I'd like to apologize to everyone who may have been offended by my earlier take, this album is a masterpiece, legitimately blown away here

    Will give Blue a go tomorrow

    Baroness has followed more or less the same trajectory as Mastodon. Started as a sort of proggy sludge band and then morphed into more of a hard rock version of their earlier selves

    Baroness didnt write an album about a quadriplegic who accidentally travels back in time to Tsarist Russia though

    I think Leviathan is a bit overrated and gets so much love because nothing else really sounded like it at the time. Blood Mountain holds up better to me.

    We didn't discuss it much in depth when it came out, but two years later, I still find myself going back to Emperor of Sand. It's awesome. Roots Remain is fantastic.

    The original release had mediocre production, I still loved it though. Not quite as much as Unanimated "Ancient God Of Evil".

    The concepts, the playing, the synergy between those four are all there, they just aren't very well developed. And imo it sounds like everyone in the band is trying to show off. Brann Dailor even laughed in some interview about his "overplaying" on that album. It's easy for me as a fan to say like 8 albums later, but it seems like musicians who can play on that level should just write what they're into and their mAD sKiLlZ will shine through regardless. Plus the staticky guitar production has always irritated me.

    However, the Remission songs when I saw them live were sick. From the few dozen bands I've seen live, no one has really come close to Mastodon in terms of their playing.

    I might view it more favorably if that was the only thing they ever did but in the context of the rest of their albums I think it's on the weaker end. Then again I view them as a prog band at their core.

    I liked it when it came out and it's grown on me since then. But it imo highlights the fundamental problem with Mastodon as they've moved toward the hard-rock-that-sounds-like-Mastodon area, which is that the only person in the band who can really sing is Brann Dailor. This is a problem because his signature style as a musician and Mastodon's as a band is that pretty much every song is going to have some proggy rhythm stuff going on and there are going to be like a hundred drum rolls. It's also a problem because his singing voice is actually pretty damn good

    I love his parts on Jaguar God, especially when they harmonize with the keyboard

    Baroness is a band that I loved at one time but I probably won't even listen to this album because of how shitty the singles off of it sounded

    sad

    Also I saw them at the very last date on the tour after their big bus accident and they were sloppy and bad. Honestly in terms of bands that I was specifically paying to see, they were probably the worst.
