It's pretty hard to give a balanced review for 'Red Album'. In some ways this is a definite 5 star album but some of it doesn't quite gell or stand out as much on an overall listen.

Given the fact that this is a relapse release, I was hoping it would be heavier than it is. It certainly isn't as heavy as Mastodon or as complex as a band like Dysrhythmia, although there's plenty to keep you interested. Not being a band I'd really heard of before, I wasn't that sure what to expect and it took a good few listens to get into. Also, it feels like the ideas start to run out slightly towards the last few tracks, but there is a wealth of talent & progression on display in the best stuff.

Opener 'Rays of Pinion' is definetly on the heavy side, a melodic, uplifting intro leads into heavy riffs & a fierce vocal delivery. The more you listen, the more its apparent that the band have a blatant disregard for song structure, which generally, although not always, works to great effect. Quite often the vocals drop in & out of the muscial tapestry without using a chorus or particular phrase as the hook. The tracks meander along, sometimes focusing on the bass, sometimes the drums or the brillant guitar interplay. This is something the band do have in common with Mastodon. The twin guitar style works well to create constantly evolving melodies & moods. 'The Birthing' starts out in rollicking style, only to break down into a heavy bass, almost dub like sound which then reverts back to the heavy riffing. This is interspersed with a southern riff, that splits the track in two, ending in the same way it begins, with a burst of heaviness. The majority of tracks continue to work in this way, mixing slower or longer proggy sections with bursts of noise & aggression.

baroness are from savannah in virginia,southern america and their sound has that feel and identity without ever restricting itself to that and that alone.
The band have been compared to mastodon,explosions in the sky,clutch and isis,record labels love to do that to catch fans unaware but in this instance the comparisons are more or less on the money.
The album has ten tracks whipping in at 44 minutes long,there is a hidden track that is 11 minutes long but its mainly silence so i wont mention that.The band are epic without ever really being so,confused,you should be,its the way they develop the song at times that gives them that personna,slow ,structured,never in a hurry but delivering when they feel like it,not when you would expect!
Swirling soundscapes give way to fierce riffing but not that fierce,this band arent as heavy as some of their peers but when you listen you will be drawn in.The band dont always follow the post rock path,on tracks liek the brilliant 'wanderlust' they just go for it and never stop,the four instrumentals here vary in style but complement what comes before and after and as for the last track 'grad',a beast of a closer that features a roaring trumpet,goose pimples or what my friend,something else.
Baroness experiment here but dont really stray that far from the norms of music,so that can be viewed one of two ways but for my opinion this is great stuff,a fine debut album from a band that should be taken very seriously,thanks treeny.

As a fan of heavy metal, I found this album extremely refreshing. I discovered Baroness when I heard 'Isak' on the Radio 1 Rock Show. The majority of the Red Album is musically-oriented, sparing on the vocals. The major highlight to the music is the drummer's contribution - which was astounding. The vocals are the worst aspect, and lyrics are poor. But i recommend this album for people who appreciate guitar metal. And I cannot stress how blown away I was by listening to the drumming - it's not anything as tense as heavy metal, yet just as intricate.
Stand out tracks are Rays on Pinion, Isak and Wanderlust.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By C. P. Turner on 17 Sept. 2007
Format: Audio CD
Early releases by Baroness were monolithic - the 'first' and 'second' EPs were fantastic slabs of innovative metal which brought to mind bands like Opeth and Isis. Lengthy, intricate tracks with occasional growling vocals and a solid production quality are typical of these EPs. Their third release 'A Grey Sigh In A Flower Bank' is equally powerful but sadly Baroness only contribute 2 tracks to this record and the others are provided by the less impressive (but still worth a listen) 'Unpersons'.

With the Red Album, Baroness seem to have mellowed ever so slightly, and initially the overall sound isn't quite as heavy, but this creates a slightly more 'matured' sound, and on repeated listening it's clear that the band still have a lot of ideas, certainly they aren't easily pigeon holed.

Red Album is poweful, impressively executed and has many hidden depths. Brilliant headphones metal. Recommended.

Not being a lover of growling or shouty vocals i was knocked out by this album.Although the vocals are quite raw that is more than made up for by the superb musicianship of all involved on this album.The drumming is astounding as is the superb guitar playing.This is heavy but not in a black metal way, there's more of a hard rock feel to it and dare i say it, touches of prog!
