Here's a band that has picked up a notable amount of steam over the past few years; Red Album was generally received warmly, building up perfectly to the staggering amounts of praise for Blue Record. The pressure is on. How do they live up to it? By throwing us a goddamn curve-ball, is what.

Stoner/Sludgy styled metal has never been for me really, but I kind of like these albums. pretty good.

Yellow's worth an 8, while Green's more of a 6.

Took me a really long time to not hate this, but even still I just can't appreciate what they were aiming for here.

The first time I listened to this, I didn't pay attention to the fact my files didn't have the proper disc tags. Everything played in the wrong other, and I was wondering why I found it both boring and very inconsistent. No matter how many times I try to get into it, I still end up switching to Blue or Red after three tracks.

I remember when I was stupid and didn't like this. I still think there's some filler and throwaway tracks, but overall I think this is a good album.

After reading along to it and seeing them play it live, I can tell this was a very heartfelt album reflecting some dark issues in John's life. Eula is probably one of their best songs ever and really strikes a chord in my emotions.

March to the Sea and Cocainium are both pretty dark songs that stand out to me as well. When I first listened to this I simply dismissed it because it didn't sound like the Red and Blue albums, but in a way it still resembles their core style. It took me a while to adapt to the change and when I did the darker stories of their songs started resonating in a completely different way than their past material ever did.

I love those songs. They translated very well live and the harmonies between John and Pete were pretty good; better than the tour for the Blue Album.

Gonna spend some time watching live performances on Youtube for the next little while, thanks for the reminder.
