I notice ya’ll didn’t say if you actually liked it. I thought Chlorine and Wine was great. Some of the other songs were pretty good. A few, my ears could barely process on the first pass. I think that by so rigidly controlling the tempo, it became too mechanical for that ecstatic sensation to occur. The organic feel, to me, is what makes bands like Baroness, Elder & Helms Alee so tasty.
