Album Review : Blue Record - Baroness 9*
In crowskin overcoat
Save your breath
This may be the last
There is no novelty here on the earth"
These sort of lyrics are very much in the Mastodon vein, and they don't always seem to mean very much, they come across like Coleridge crossed with Gary Gycax. It does work well with the haunting and idiosyncratic upwelling of guitars that underpin them though.
This is a really fantastic album, there isn't a weak point amongst its dozen tracks, highly recommended.
