Baroness's sound is rather difficult to pigeonhole at times. At one point their sound isn't too far away from early Mastodon, and at other points, they sound like Thin Lizzy on steroids. 2009's sophomore effort Blue Record saw them move further away from those Mastodon comparisons and expanded their landscapes and thus were able to forge their own feel. Blue Record features more emphasis on mellow, acoustic tunes that explores the band's sense of melody and depth, such as on 'Steel That Sleeps The Eye' (which features a chorus that carries into the next track 'Swollen and Halo'), as well as songs that explores riffs and beats in shorter time spans, resulting in a more dense sound overall. Songs like 'The Sweetest Curse' and 'A Horse Called Golgotha' being good example, the latter having one of the most bittersweet opening riffs you'll hear as well as a powerful chorus and a superb drumming performance. Overall, Blue Record is just a straight up excellent record that plays with a consistent garage rock-style energy throughout with each individual song being good in its own right. It may take a few listens to fully realise its true potential, but you'll find new little bits to enjoy each time and that is the album's ultimate reward.
