PO: BARONESS - All Sales Are Final!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Baroness. The music is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the songs will go over a typical listener's head. There's also Baizley's artistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his songwriting- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Alphonse Mucha paintings, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these lyrics, to realise that they're not just dark- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Baroness truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the art in Baroness' existential lyrics ",Borderline
Get me out alive" which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Jonh Baizley's genius wit unfolds itself on their Crosley turntables. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Baroness tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

On top of the atrocious production – that fucking outro, wow – I think the chorus is probably the corniest thing the band has written.  Probably going to hook up someone with my variant at cost, at this point.

I didn't make it to the outro :( 

I liked the intro/groove, and tried to power through, but the production was so fucking bad, I turned it off about 2/3 of the way in.

I started to listen to this on my phone earlier and was like, "This sounds like butt, let me wait until I get to some decent speakers." So I got to something better, and it still sounds soooooo fucking bad. Why do the drums sound so...splashy? that's not the right word. It's almost like there is a layer of static over them. I don't think I've ever hated production on an album as much as I hate what I've heard on these tracks.
