New Baroness Album Stream

Baroness Yellow and Green Album

Naked ladies, swans about to get it, death and decay. Nothing to see here, move along now.

Fucking hell. The hairs on my neck are standing on end. I am listening to the opening bars of Baroness Yellow & Green on NPR. I can’t believe it, Christmas has come early!

Check out the full album stream here or better yet here.

Right can’t stop, have a double-album of pure awesome to listen to for the first time!

Update: I love Baroness but two thirds through the Yellow side I am not being immediately blown away. I liked the advance singles but I’m a bit dubious. Will persevere.

Update #2: Green seems the stronger of the two sides (I’m a third in) but I’m still on the fence about whether I like this. I hope we get plenty of old stuff at Thursday’s gig!

Update #3: I really miss the roar and riff. Stop singing man and bellow! After a full (single) listen, I have very mixed feelings. Let’s hope it’s a grower.

    Listened to this twice now, for me the Yellow side is the stronger, Green really tails off with the two slower numbers for me. I really miss the heaviness but overall I’m pretty happy with it I think in the long run the really strong tracks on here will outweigh the weak (I hope!)

      Yeah, I’ve changed my mind. I prefer Yellow too. It’s slowly growing on me. Relapse Records Soundcloud is better quality than the NPR stream and I’m enjoying it more. Maybe it’s just growing on me. They were unbelievably awesome last night – I’ll post in more detail soon!

    I for one was hugely disappointed with Yellow & Green, having been a Baroness fan for a while now. Blue and Red are amazing in a cute-ish brutal way, and First & Second are awesome too. Yellow & Green is still good music IMO, but not what I want to hear coming from Baroness. I think that the album has gotten really mixed reviews in a lot of places, but I guess it’s ballsy of the band to go out on such a tangent.
