About the "Blue Record" as this is a "Sister" record for the 2007 "Red Album", this record is a bit different than the previous, this one got more "Go" even if some tunes have the similar flow, this is a brilliant album as you can hear some many great influences that Baroness really take care of, you got John Baizley’s psychedelic lyrics, great harmonies, brilliant melodies and well done riffs. "Blue Record is an instantly-classic album"
Todays tune "A Horse Called Golgotha" taken from the 'Blue Record' It’s heavy tune, catchy and complex. Enjoy!
