for people who've listened to it, just how different is it? the new songs I've heard have sounded more or less like the same old Baroness just a little mellower and less abrasive. some reviews I've read make it out like the new album's a total departure so I'm just curious as to just how big a departure it really is.
since like I said, the songs I've heard don't sound all that radically departed from the usual Baroness.
Departure is overdoing it. It's still got the riffs and fun little solos. It's just devoid of the deep vocals that drew me in. There is a lot of down time on it. It's a fun listen. I'd compare the sound to the difference between Leviathan and Crack The Skye but not as boring and shitty.
