SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
2 stars These days, the prog tag is something easy to come by. Since prog isn't a dirty word anymore and seems to stir some positive feedback from the audiences again, clever marketers at record labels throw the term at just any album they wish to promote. If it has an occasional song over 5 minutes or if the band can handle their equipment reasonably then, there you go folks. It's prog!

And so fares Baroness. If this album had come out 15 years ago it would have been labelled stoner or alternative metal or sludge metal or whatever was the buzzword back then. Now prog is cool again, so they throw in the prog tag for good measure. Well, we can only applaud prog has lost most of its negative connotations but it makes you wonder how much more we wish to water down the term? Till it doesn't mean anything anymore?

Don't misunderstand me. I don't care much what musical form prog should take, nor does it bother me much whatever categorization a band is condemned to operate in. I would even listen to rap if you ask me friendly. But genre classification, no matter inadequate it is, can still be useful to describe what kind of music you may more or less expect.

And what I expect from prog is outstanding, adventurous, dynamic and textured music with a strong personality. The Blue Record has none of that and as such it doesn't come close to anything I appreciate at all. It is unremarkable, heavy riffs based sludge metal that is volume-butchered to death. This won't add anything to your collection of Neurosis and Melvins albums. Which you should have of course :-)

4 stars Champions of Rock and Roll Guitar

Some bands and albums transcend genre and taste simply because their energy is so good. Baroness is a band that is easy to love. Their common guy, hard working fire is evident all over their work. Lead vocalist / guitarist John Baizley has one of the ugliest mugs in music right now, but he is a multi-talented force whose best work may be his visual artistry. (He has designed album covers for multiple artists, including the phenomenal earth-goddess painting on this, his own band's BLUE RECORD.) Baroness is a band with multiple progressive sensibilities, even if they are not a purely "prog" band. But one thing is certain. Few, if any, bands out right now are as rock and roll as these guys. Their sound is simultaneously raw and carefully constructed. Their chemistry is great. In fact, the interplay between Baizley and second guitarist Brian Blickle is the foundation of the band's sound. Twin guitars, weaving in and out, trading lead and support, harmony solos, double grooves, they have it all. As a guitar lover, BLUE RECORD is simply a delight.

I was first exposed to Baroness as an unknown (to me) supporting act for Opeth during the former's tour for their RED RECORD. Though the sound was bad (as it is for all openers at the venue I was at), I knew that something really interesting was happening with this band. I sampled a few songs and liked them, but it wasn't until I started looking into this newer album that I was really hooked. The teaser single "Swollen and Halo" was an improvement on the sound I'd heard before, but it is really the entire album experience that grabs me. The band has clearly spent some careful time thinking about the transitions and pacing of the album. There are some textural short pieces ("Steel that Sleeps the Eye," "Ogeechee Hymnal") that are based on melodic themes from neighboring songs. The album is bookended by "Bullhead's Psalm" and "Bullhead's Lament" which are quieter pieces featuring harmony guitar leads. And in between are some octane-filled rockers that are perfect for jamming on the road, working out, and work just as well on headphones as they do on a car stereo ("Horse Called Golgotha," "Jake Leg".)

Singing in metal these days (maybe always) can be an acquired taste. Baroness is no different in this regard. I would describe Baizley's vocals as shouting on pitch. There is a clear melodic contour the vocals, but truly sung voice is heard only once. Even two years ago when I saw the band live, this was difficult for me to get past. Now that I've learned to put up with vocals from bands like Death, Maudlin of the Well, and various post-metal outfits, Baroness' seem relatively palatable. Still, guitar is the star of the show here, with some nice drumming in support. All the instruments have a live feel, a natural sound that one can imagine being able to produce in the garage (possibly with a stomp box or two.)

One other reviewer bemoaned the fact that virtually anything will pass for prog these days and that this is relatively straightforward stoner metal. Several years ago, I was an avid Queens of the Stone Age fan. So I pulled a few of those discs out to compare. While QotSA has some outstanding songwriting (and more listener-friendly vocals) the level of complexity is like night and day. Baroness clearly exists within the same realm of music, but there are so many more riffs, more layers, greater complexity. There is no doubt that the band follows some prog ideals, most importantly being the idea of intentional composition. I notice no improvised leads (or in fact wankery of any sort) on the record at all. The melodic lines are clearly worked out, the interplay composed. This is not a Metallica-style riff with blues based soloing over the top. These are songs, carefully put together from the first note of the album to the last.

The closest prog album I own to this is Mastodon's CRACK THE SKYE. While Mastodon's vocals and composition are both a notch higher in quality, and the record is clearly "proggier," Baroness wins in terms of pure energy. This is saying a lot, because CRACK THE SKYE was one of the most rocking records of the year 2009. Each has their own strengths, each a deserved place in any prog metal lover's library. 4/5 stars.

Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Blue Record is the 2nd full-length studio album by US experimental/ progressive sludge metal act Baroness. The album was released in October 2009 by Relapse Records. The regular version of the album contains 12 tracks while the Deluxe Edition features a bonus CD with 5 tracks recorded live at the Roadburn Festival in 2009. Just like every other release by Baroness, Blue Record is also graced with a cover artwork created by guitarist/ vocalist John Baizley who in addition to being a musician is also a very skilled visual artist.

The music on the album is a quite adventurous mix of progressive sludge metal, 70s hard rock/ metal and rock´n´roll ( there´s even a folky acoustic track called Steel That Sleeps the Eye on the album). The style is actually hard to describe with words and I´m afraid my above description might confuse more than it helps. This is simply one of those albums you´ll have to give a listen yourself ( and believe me it´s worth it) to determine which labels you would apply to it. This is one of those cases that gives reviewers headaches and countless hours of problems with writing a review and I´m sure that´s how Baroness likes it. No boundaries and one adventurous journey through a 44:25 minutes long album full of surprises. It´s not like the music sticks out in every direction though. The album is highly consistent both quality wise and in terms of style ( which kind of contradicts my above statement about the surprises, but I said this was a difficult album to describe right!). So let´s see, the music contains, heavy mid-paced sludgy riffing, lots of melodic guitar work ( I´m reminded of Thin Lizzy and Wishbone Ash at times), various raw/ clean vocal styles and a pretty raw and filthy production. It´s not a lo-fi underproduced affair though, the sound is deliberately made to sound this way. It took a while to appreciate but I enjoy it now.

The musicianship is excellent. Again it´s the playfullness of the whole affair that I´m really impressed by.

Blue Record is a great sophomore album. What a development this band has been through. 4 stars are more than deserved for a very original and adventurous album by a band that refuses to be put into a box. Very interesting. And on a sidenote that cover artwork is just astonishing.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal and Heavy Prog Teams
2 stars This is one of the few occasions where an album, rather than start growing at me with every next hearing, becomes more and more indifferent. Blue Record is not easily compared with albums from the contemporary "big" bands of the post metal movement for one simple reason: it is not permanently slow and creepy and this is among the positives aspects of it.

The album is a strange mixture of 70's rock 'n roll, stoner rock (in the vein of Spiritual Beggars) and post/sludge metal but with a lot more "vibe" and less heaviness than a typical post/sludge album (if there is one). Among the above, there are influences from Metallica (intro/outro, particularly on the twin guitars), UFO (A Horse Called Golgotha, acoustic part), Mastodon (War, Wisdom and Rhyme), and country and folk music in the various acoustic parts that intervene between full songs. Disappointingly, the band has been affected by the modern "nu-metal" sound as well (e.g. Swollen and Halo).

I struggle to find the elements that would categorise Baroness under any prog genre, as their sound is mainly based in rock 'n roll/stoner riffs and simple acoustic melodies. Although the record is solid in terms of musicianship and structure, I feel that there is rarely something original to be found among the - sometimes enjoyable - riff lines or the - carefully executed - melodic parts. In addition, the number of different styles, which usually gives the required variation to an album, feels as it does not work this time as I found myself "confused" after listening to the 12 tracks in a row.

It would be unfair to say that this is a bad album; it does certainly have its moments but I fear that the end result would appeal only to some fans of the stoner/sludge style without many expectations of "progressive" music.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Baroness play a dirty, sludgy style of metal which draws heavily on 1970s influences but at the same time refuses to brush aside modern advances and technology, with some at points really very effective sythesiser use setting Blue Record apart from its peers. With rough, bellowing vocals channeling the "Bullhead" figure referenced in the bookending tracks, some really fine guitar work, and a greater diversity of styles on offer than your typical stoner throwback band, Baroness seem intent on driving their chosen musical style into the future. On the basis of Blue Record, they might even have the chops to accomplish that.
