Editorial Reviews

BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME have built their reputation as one of hard rock's most inventive and ambitious bands. Sharing a lineage with such luminaries as PINK FLOYD, KING CRIMSON and TOOL, they continue to explore new territory with a genuine passion to push themselves and their audience. They dream the impossible and they make it happen time and time again. Looking at their hugely celebrated catalog, it's exciting to see how far they've come and how deep they are willing to go. Venturing into each record is like exploring undiscovered country. From the progressive metal stomp of their self-titled debut, followed by the melancholy of The Silent Circus and then the claustrophobic Alaska, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME continue to evolve into a new pedigree that defies any categorization.

Customer Reviews

Hands down one of the best complete albums ever.
Sean Mortimer
What this means is that it has trippy, Mr. Bungle-ish vocals, and a ton of divine, soaring guitar/bass melodies and In Flames-styled harmonies.
A. Stutheit
The entire album is masterful, and is a showcase for true musical talent in its purest form.
Jeffrey LaPlante

Words cannot describe this cd. BTBAM get better and better with every album. As other reviewers have mentioned, you can definitely hear more progressive influence, but they still keep it heavy and technical. Everyone is at the top of their game on this album. When I first saw that it was only 8 tracks, I was wondering how they could accomplish an album superior to Alaska. I then saw the lengths of the songs and knew they were going to be epic tracks, to the opening piano in "Foam Born: (a) The Backtrack" to the amazing closer and my personal favorite song by BTBAM ever "White Walls", this album never lets down. There's so many different influences in this album, and it goes to show that BTBAM are the top of their class. Every album by this band has been amazing, and this is just another one to add to the list.

Album of the year for me.

I have to say that this album is the perfect album. Like the Beatles White Album, and Metallica's Black Album. We now get the greatest album of them all BTBAM "colors." Every single song on this album is amazing, and very well put together. I have been listening to BTBAM since Silent Circus, and it seems to me that instead of them becoming more "flowery," (as someone put on a recent review of the album) I am finding them becoming something more imaginable, intelligent, and put simply just amazing artist. I am stunned by this album, and I can not stop playing it. To give this album anything less than a five is shocking to me. You have to listen to it and understand it's pure genius. I recommend this album to anyone who respects music, and loves music from a progressive stance. Music is meant to evolve, not sit around like a bunch of retards like some of the most recent songs I hear today. SO give it a shot it's awesome.

You know what the problem was? I don't think most people are ready for the insanity and complexity and progginess that Between the Buried and Me had to offer on this album. I liked Alaska quite a bit, but this seriously blew it out of the damn water like a nuclear cannon. They offer nothing subtle to you, there are no stupid segues into anything, it's just visceral and insane.

I was actually shocked that enjoyed this album upon first listen, though, I have been quite privy to music like this, as I like Spiral Architect, Dillinger Escape Plan, Opeth, Dream Theater, and most other progressive metal and mathcore bands. You probably won't like this upon first listen, especially if you're new to material such as this. You have to pay attention and give it a chance, honestly. This isn't radio friendly, in the least.

Just buy it and listen to it, if for nothing else to expand your horizons.

I was actually a little worried the first time that I listened to Colors. I was scared that it would make the rest of my music collection seem pedestrian in comparison. It is almost impossilbe to listen to just one song as this album is nothing short of a masterpiece that takes about an hour to realize. Since they have released this I have seen them live twice and it was nothing short of spectacular. Any studio magic has been mastered and blended with a live show that will leave you with a strong sense that you may have just witnessed the greatest musical performance of your life.

I threw "Colors" on again the other day, and a remarkable thing happened: I was astonished by it, by the sheer scope and ambition of the album and by seemingly effortless execution. In short, by the album's sheer awesomeness. Mind you, I've owned "Colors" since not long after it came out and have listened to it dozens of times in that near two year span. There's a helluva a lot of music that I enjoy immensely, but almost nothing can generate real excitement more than a few weeks after the initial release. "Colors" does.

I resisted listening to Between the Buried and Me for a long time, as their name and their presence on Victory records suggested a cut rate metallic hardcore band, most likely with irritating "emotional" tendencies. It's probably a good thing that I didn't listen to them early on, as though their first two LPs are more impressive than my initial suspicions would suggest, they aren't remarkable either, and may have prevented me from checking out their more recent material. (Though, honestly, I've not given them as full of a listen as I should, as I bought their output in a flurry and couldn't help but focus on "Colors" and "Alaska.") Fortunately "Alaska" proved to be an artistic breakthrough, and a remarkable release, combining brute but intricate technical metalcore and death metal with numerous unexpected and melodic influences, all without blunting the overall intensity. With "Colors" BtBaM doubled down, writing a 64 minute epic that increased the sophistication of the core metal elements while expanding the outside influences as well. The final result is one of the densest metal albums ever recorded, a truly labyrinthine composition that rarely repeats itself and which refuses to dwell on any idea for long.

"Colors" is these guy's most diverse album to date. Pretty much every genre is present at one point or another on this album. Metalcore, Death Metal, Prog Rock, Polka, Bluegrass, Jazz, Celtic, Tribal, Folk, Post Rock, its all here. These guys definitely have talent to pull off all these different styles and make it sound like their own. Surprisingly, each song flows perfectly and theres never a dull moment. Their best album to date. Buy it if you like intelligent metal.

The new Dream Theater?
I haven't heard this particular recording yet (obviously as it doesn't come out until the 18th) but I have heard their last two releases and found them both to be phenomenal. While I agree that they do have a ring of Dream Theater to them I think they're a more harder edged & adventureous. Don't... Read More
