Product Description

BBC Review

You’ll recognise John Baizley’s voice if you’re a Baroness fan, but there will be some immediate doubts; doubts that border on apprehension, as this is a markedly different album than its predecessors.

Yellow & Green sits apart from the stunning sludge of Red Album and Blue Record, material that made everyone from the metal press to the indie sheets sit up and take notice of the Savannah, Georgia quartet. This double album effort is a distinctly mellower affair. The abrasive vocals of yore are only hinted at, and the instrumentation has taken on more of a sprawling rock sound. But it’s brilliantly realised – the kind of album that will set Baroness apart from their peers in years to come.

Yellow & Green is so good that, despite the quite dramatic change in style, it may well become your favourite Baroness album. From the Yellow half of the album, the driving and brooding Take My Bones Away will be the first to latch onto the singing-to-yourself part of your brain. It’s followed by the rumbling melancholy of March to the Sea, the underwater echoes of Sea Lungs and the wonderfully emotive Eula.

What’s already an excellent record grows further come its Green side. More upbeat from the straightforward rock of Board Up the House onwards, this half of proceedings ebbs to an even more reflective position. Stretchmarker and Foolsong are the notable diamonds, but this is a sea of jewels.

The quality of songwriting and amount of raw passion on show throughout is striking. A shift from such a well-supported branch of heavy metal to what could be perceived as a more commercial sound is a difficult one to achieve, but a call a band led by a man as staunch in his artistic rites as Baizley sell-outs at your peril. This nearly flawless collection is simply the next step in the Baroness saga, and it’s a beautiful one.

--John Aizlewood

Yellow & Green is the third full-length studio album by the Savannah based Progressive/Sludge Metal band Baroness, it was released in the summer of 2012, produced by John Congleton and is a double disc album.

Like the band's previous albums (and indeed some other Savanah based bands, including Black Tusk and Kylesa) the artwork was created by singer John Dyer Baizley. Furthermore, like the band's previous two albums Red Album and Blue Record, the discs are each given a colour theme.

Both discs open with a musical intro-theme, one for each of the two colours. For example, the first track on disc one is `Yellow Theme' which is a brief instrumental piece using some of the notes and rhythms from later on the disc.

Then, it bursts in with the ridiculously catchy single `Take My Bones Away,' which features brilliant melodic guitar lines and a memorable chorus, some keys and a brilliantly dynamic form where things build up, cut out, speed up, slow down and come in and out of effects loops. It may be shocking if you are caught off guard, but it's a phenomenal track that's every bit as memorable as `Teeth Of A Cogwheel' `Wanderlust' or `A Horse Called Golgotha,' if not more so.

Everything about the album is just a little bit bigger and better than the previous two albums. The production job is fantastic, the songwriting is a little bit more distinctive, John Baizley's vocals have improved immensely and of course there is a full seventy-five minutes worth of music to enjoy this time around.

The apple has fallen really quite far from the tree if you were to sit and compare Red or Blue with Yellow and Green, but in no-way should that be taken as a bad thing. Baroness are progressively moving forward, carving their own niche and fundamentally writing their own rule book. Aspirational, yes, a bit of a shock for their established fan base? probably. Essentially, do not expect to hear Red, and do not expect to hear Blue, but do expect to hear elements of both, intertwined with ever more complex songwriting and musicianship. Gripping, addictive, exciting and even refreshing, Yellow and Green is a truly accomplished effort and offers as much of a rewarding listen as both the bands previous records, perhaps even more as they explore genres and sounds that are not necessarily previously fitting of their "remit". Most definitely worth purchasing - a defining moment in fantastic young bands career. 110% out of 10.

The key factor that an album needs in order to remain important and/or influential in the future of music is originality, and as far technicality in rock/metal goes these days, the hardest thing for any musician or band to do remains the development of an original, unique 'voice'. Baroness have never been a band to sound like other bands, but one could always group them in with a certain scene of post-Mastodon sludgy, psychedelic metal (not to knock any of these bands). What Baroness have done here however, is develop a unique album that defies current categorisation. Fusing influences of prog, contemporary metal, folk, indie, phycadelia and possibly even some post-hardcore, I am of the firm opinion that Baroness have created a game changer. If the band takes off where this has left off, I reckon Baroness will develop into one of those bands with which legions of lesser bands will attempt to rip off.

The manner in which this art is presented is unique also, for although it is sold as a 'double album', Yellow and Green are albums of their own entirely. This is not a double album that is meant to be listened to all at once, it is two albums that can be listened seperately and works of art in their own right. The whole thing flows brilliantly, but one can still listen to this thing one side at a time. All of this said, it can still be listened to as a proggressive odeyssey of sound, with some truly atmospheric moments on it.

While unqiueness is not enough to make an album brilliant (Biffy Clyro are 'unique' but they aren't 'good') the songwriting on here is also phenomenal. Choruses come catchy, lyrics come deep and esoteric, the way the guitars and vocals both convey such arrays of emotion so vividly and emphaticly.

As a lot of people have noted this is a departure from the heavier stuff on their earlier releases. Personally this doesn't bother me - I heard some tracks before buying it - 'Take my bones away', 'March to the sea' and 'Eula' and liked these all. When I listened through the album initially not much of it really stood out to me. I think this is because it's a bit more chilled out than their other stuff. Having listened through a couple of times it definitely grows on you, and there are some really good tracks.

Personally, I found this a bit less interesting than their earlier stuff because to me it sounds a bit less energetic (although it's nice to have the option of chilling out to baroness), the production is a lot cleaner and less sludgy, and the arrangements are a bit more predictable. All in all it's still a pretty good album (I'd probably give it 3.5 stars if I could), but for me was a bit disappointing compared to their other stuff.
