Between the Buried And Me – Colors

btbam_01.jpgThe most cliché question in rock and roll is whether or not a band considers their latest effort to be their ‘Dark Side of the Moon.’ Rarely is it true, and rarely can a band say it’ll outlive the remainder of their to-be-completed catalogue. However, once in a while a band comes along that continues to out-do their past, push forward and continue to define a sound all their own. Mastodon proved that with their latest effort (Blood Mountain – Reprise 2006), MC’s like MF and Sole forge ahead with their lyrical banter, and somehow, Led Zeppelin’s records continue to do it to this day.

btbam_02.jpgThat being said, BTBAM‘s looooonnnnnggggg-awaited follow up to ‘Alaska’ finally leaked over the weekend. And not that we condone piracy, but absolutely HAD to get our hands on ‘Colors’ (Victory Records – 2007). Easily said, it is THE most ecclectic (and we really mean all-over-the-place), mind-boggling, epic, non-stop 65 minutes we’ve heard since Zeppelin III/IV. So, if that connotation isn’t enough to whet your drop Db appetite, go dust off your Bright Eyes records and un-bookmark this site… like, immediately.

    really

    well all i heard was about 15sec. of some throw-back sweeping gtr riffs and machine gun kick drums to recognize the world wide yawn of hearing yet another in the long list of ‘metal’ bands that owe there sound once again to Digidesign and the wonderful BeatDetective/SoundReplacer treatments…boring and meaningless….there was a day prior to quantizing to a grid that required years of sweat to sound like that…now it few mouse clicks from minimum wage intern on Protools and it’s ‘mind-boggling’…
