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.

It's just hype that people started bashing since their "title" was revealed and upto now Y&G is still in clouds of attack. It's a very good album with very good innovative ways the band has headed to. They brought up little "change" in their music direction which inevitably have covered up the album's experience enjoyable and well deserved acclaim. I though found two to three songs pretty straightforward simple delivered rock which bored me a lot, but, um it wasn't that bad overall you know.

No it isn't, it was "attacked" because the songs they released were indeed steaming piles of Nickleback flavoured mediocrity, and the album revealed itself to reflect a general overlong session of pedestrian averageness. Nothing to do with hype, just general disappointment from a lot of people.

I knew.....it. Seems like Y&G gotta tag of stupid "Nickelback" eh?!. Probably, I found this album to be enjoyable and considered a great release too.

This steaming piece of mediocrity is going to win Sludge/Stoner album of the year. I can see it already. Turrible.

You're absolutely right. It's not that bad. I found it very average. Especially when compared to their back catalog. This to me is a clear cut case of a talented band losing that fire that once made them great. This is all just my opinion but as someone who has purchased their prior two albums I claim the right to judge their music as I see fit. And it disappoints me that people seem to be embracing what I hear as a lackluster release rather than collectively saying "c'mon guys, you can do better." Oh well.

Rating: 8 'Yellow and Green' is amongst the most varied albums released in 2012. 'Green' is a little more interesting than 'Yellow' in terms of songwriting, but 'Yellow' makes up for its boredom by having tense build-ups, as on 'Take my Bones away' and 'Cocainum'. The band said that this release would feature more of an indie rock influence, and whilst that isn't exactly everyone's cup of tea, it still makes for an interesting listen nonetheless.

Rating: 8 Always hated when a Metal band,ventured into the Rock territory,well until this.This doesn't seem like a sellout at all,but them reaching deeper into there craft.Only complaint would be this could have been a lot shorter,some of the songs feel unnecessary.

you needn't worry about that. lack of distortion pedal pretty much guarantees this won't be in that category.

Rating: 8 For what it's worth, I think this is a decent rock album. I'm sure the change in sound has a lot of people grumpy but I really liked the direction of "Yellow & Green." I'm really interested in hearing where this sound takes the band in a few years when they sit down to write the next album because I've read where Baizley has said he had a collection of rock songs he wanted to get out. So I wonder if "Yellow & Green" was just him getting some of that off his chest or if this will be a permanent shift in sound.

Rating: 8 Stoner/Sludgy styled metal has never been for me really, but I kind of like these albums. pretty good.

Rating: 7 i think music is good, but as a whole album is strangely boring and tiring..

  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.

Rating: 6 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.
Ganondox - 07.07.2014 at 18:56  
  Absolutely love the yellow side, haven't really heard the green side.
Troy Killjoy - 04.08.2014 at 16:24  
  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.

  I prefer the yellow side to the green side, but overall I say it's an excellent album.
