Lets face it, 2009 was a great year for music. But Baroness is out there on top. This band will go somewhere… this band reminds me so much of a young Mastodon… except, I would go even as far as to saying they harmonize better and write better riffs. I especially love it how the drums go along with the guitars, you dont get that much these days. The vocals are amazing, not for everyone, but to me, their golden. I gotta say, I love this album, every time I listen to it again, I love it even more. WELL worth the money.
