Editorial Reviews

Blue Record announces the re-awakening of Savannah s rock giants BARONESS. The follow-up to 2007 s Red Album, Blue Record is an instantly-classic album, with all the peaks and valleys, textures, and nuances that timeless records yield over repeated listens. Deep and dark; Blue Record overflows with gossamer melodies and striking, earnest riffs that have become the band s signature. Swollen and Halo , Jake Leg , War, Wisdom, and Rhyme , The Sweetest Curse , are just a few of the tracks that are both instant and unforgettable, making Blue Record the most poignant moment in the BARONESS canon to date.

Customer Reviews

Nuff said, a definite MUST HAVE!
MARSHALL MAN
This is the first Baroness album that I have heard, and I'll say, it was quite enjoyable to listen to.

What Baroness have done here is to attempt, and successfully execute, something that heretofore had only been attempted by Mastodon on their last couple records. Make an insanely heavy record that packs hooks - whether catchy riffs, vocal melodies, or leads - into every conceivable minute of the album, without sacrificing anything, most especially continuity or atmosphere. It is, undoubtedly, one hell of an undertaking, and most groups are not even capable of trying. Many that might be do not try for fear of failure. It's a lot easier to just pump out disgusting riffs if that's what you do well. Baroness has had that down pat from their first EP. But they began combining that unique riff juggernaut with prog rock, southern rock and true pop sensibilities on Red Album, and have damn near perfected the formula they started to delve into there. Blue Record is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders, on every track.

Now what Baroness do is entirely different from what their hard rock brethren in Torche and Queens of the Stone Age (generally) do. While the latter are making groovy, heavy ass pop songs, Baroness are taking heavy metal song formulas and injecting them with so much pop flavor and so many memorable, hummable hooks that it seems at any moment they might burst. But they don't. They never meander aimlessly. The songs are taught, sometimes perhaps even too concise and direct. That's how you make six minute tracks seem to fly by in two.

Sure, Baroness have a bit of work to do in the vocal department, if only because they are seemingly demanding the maximum of themselves from a songwriting perspective in every other arena. The instrumention is beyond disgusting, but I think Baroness - scary as this is - can improve.

I've been looking for something more aggressive than Torche, not as predictable as High on Fire, a groove oriented metal album, something with swing. The Blue Record is the water mark arrangement I've been looking for. The Red Album was solid (e.g. The Birthing!!!), but the whole Blue Record experience fits together like a seamless old school 70's masterpiece. The songs flow with beautiful interludes, then they build into a number of crescendos that force you to listen to the album as a whole. The last three tunes are a perfect fit, with Blackpowder Orchard/The Gnashing/Bullhead's Lament. The guttural vocals are tempered with harmonies that resemble the dueling vocals found in some Fugazi tunes. You'll hear more Zeppelin influence on this album than you'll find on TCV. Most of the faster songs have a strong sing/scream along factor working for them. The music is textured and the songs have hooks, so you can count on listening to the album repeatedly and not getting bored. Of all the tunes, I think the only one that is a misfit is "O'Er Hell and Hide". The beats and spoken word don't gel with the rest of the songs, but it's a respectable tune none the less. Then there's the artwork! Baizley is a true talent and I hope that he experiences much success as he diversifies and blossoms in the visual art world. This is my pick for best of metal album of 2009.

The state of today's popular music landscape may lead the music connoisseur to become bored with the endless cookie-cutter offerings from fabricated "American Idols" and over-the-hill rock icons. But once every so often a record that defies convention and provides a much-needed glimmer of hope that originality in the hard rock/metal genre appears. Baroness, the progressive-metal four-piece from Savannah, Georgia, has delivered such an album with its latest magnum opus entitled: Blue Record. Baroness has taken the standard idea of what a great metal album can be and has elevated it to a whole new level. Baroness uses an array of shifting dynamics, top-notch instrumental performances and tight songwriting, all packaged together with non-cliché cover art, to produce the metal album of 2009.
The talent and skill that the musicians of Baroness possess on Blue Record are evident in every song throughout the album. The twin guitar interplay of John Dyer Baizley and Pete Adams provide many of the highlights on the album. Baizley's electric guitar leads and intricate melodies provide many opportunities for Adams to harmonize in ways reminiscent of the legendary performances of Thin Lizzy. Guitarists Baizley and Adams display great chemistry throughout the album. They complement each other's styles well and are able to harness their chemistry and create many sonically diverse layers and textures. The rhythm section hold up their end and deliver the yin to the guitarists' yang. The driving rhythms of drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Summer Welch provide a solid base for the guitar performances of Baizley and Adams to shine throughout the record.

Let me just say that Blue Record is as surprising as it is enjoyable. For this very picky metal fan, Baroness' style perfectly hits the spot. From groovy rhythm sections to melodic breakdowns to straight up balls-out smashing metal riffs, accompanied by John Baizley's unique vocal talent, they caress the listener while at the same time energizing him/her.

My favorites on the album include but are not limited to: The Sweetest Curse, Jake Leg, and A Horse Called Golgotha (the penultimate energizing Baroness song). Each of these tracks really exhibits their skill and originality as the listener is constantly challenged with changing time signatures, moods, and vocal themes while still retaining their cohesiveness. This album being the middle of three, it is also in the mid range of heaviness; their first (red) album being very aggressive and their newest (yellow and green) the most harmonious and approachable. While I find the other two very enjoyable to listen to, I would present my opinion that Blue Record has the best mixture of aggression and tranquility, and is also the most cohesive of their releases.

I would advise seasoned heavy metal fans interested in Baroness to pick up this album first, while newer or more hesitant listeners should try Yellow and Green out to get a feel for the lighter side of the band. Either way, anyone remotely interested in metal or experimental music needs to at least give these guys a listen. I doubt you will be disappointed.
