I have listened to Blue Record by Baroness. Here is what I think so far.

Oh geez. I have to admit I am a little underwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad album in the least bit. It’s great. There was way too much hype around it though. I only listened once through, however, I was expecting a lot more when Iann Robinson said the following:

I know I’ll probably get kicked in the teeth for this but Blue Record is the album that Mastodon wished they had written.

Everyone is titled to their opinion, and I respect that one. I just don’t see it Brent Hinds saying

Fuck, I wish I had thought of that!

The album is a solid listen from beginning to end. Plenty of doomy, spacy shit with thick guitar riffs that are sure to pull you in after you burn one. The vocals are on point with the music; I can’t really picture the band with anyone else singing. It’s the hype that made me expect the next coming of Christ. I’ll give it many more listens to make sure I’m not a stupid fuck. Blue Record is out October 13th via Relapse.
