9/10 gbar 6th March 2017

For me, this album sums up sorrow, recovery, and new vitality. It's less about the terrible events that occurred, and more about the aftermath of events. I mean, there were some serious injuries to this band after a near fatal vehicle crash. I guess the only thing to do was to move on, pick up a guitar, and produce this excellent album. I think by overcoming this terrible event, Baroness have produced their best album to date. These are the best melodies and riffs they've developed, they've amalgamated the subtle style of Yellow & Green, along with the heaviness of the Red and Blue albums, highlighted by John Dyer Baizley's dynamic singing, which blends subtlety and aggression.
