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.
