This week, one of our most highly anticipated albums of the summer was released: Baroness' Yellow & Green. We were already looking forward to hearing whatever came next from the Georgia rockers after the success of their epic Blue Record in 2009, but we got especially excited when we found out that their latest color-coded recording would be a double album.
It's hard not to get a little tingle down your spine when you discover that an artist you like is putting together a double-disc release. Usually, it signals that the musician or group is smack in the midst of a creative high, recording a multitude of ideas at once. If you're lucky, they might even throw in a theatrical concept, or try out a new sound entirely.
