god dammit, i f*cking loved this album. go to hell.
Wow, this might be the first correct review i've ever read on this site.
it actually does take a couple listens, but it's much better than blood mountain. still liked leviathan better
some more suckin mastadons dck. i dont give a f*ck about this band
First Mastodon album I actually enjoyed listening to. 9/10 is a perfect score.
Good album, piss poor vocals... I don't see why they need 3 guys doing vox when only one sounds good...
This album will undoubtedly stand out as the best album of 2009!!! It rocks my world harder than my c-ck will ever be!
Their best and most cohesive record. I was really surprised because Blood Mountain was a big let down.
i honestly thought this album was way "easier" than the rest of their catalogue. it has hooks and choruses and lots more clean vocals.
review made no sense at all. 9/10 but they got bashed almost the whole review and the only thing that saved it is the last song? f*ck off.
i haven't even read the review yet, but thank you so much for not letting cory do this
I love this album. i love all their albums but for some reason this one just offers amazing music. it does take a few listens and i do wish there more heavier parts but that really doesn't matter.
this is the way heavy music should evolve, it is the album I wish I could make, awesome band I dig the "neo-grunge" thing, pretty sure it is the next "thing"
i'm a fan of all their releases but on this one i miss the heavy
casey really thinks this is a complicated album.
remember when the singer of this band got murked up by a skinny buttmunch in system of a down. that shit is crazy dude. he has f*cking face tattoos youd think he was a little tougher.
i heard the drummer drinks beers out of his butt. rules!
Don't forget this is their "Air" record, so of course it's more ethereal and less heavy. But it still slays and it plays through w/o any of the studio excess that Blood Mountain had. Seeing them play this whole record live two days ago was incredible. Even Brann does vocals on the new songs. 10/10
WOW! Totally surprised Lambgoat didn't smash this. Great album. f*ck you.
9 out of 10 What!!! 10 out of 10 is more like it 2009's best release hands down
I ATE ALL THE f*ckING PIES AND YOU CAN'T DO SHIT ABOUT IT,MAN.
Excellent review, I don't care about mastodon or any of it but the quality of the writing made me actually read it
I agree 100% with the rating, but I'm quite ambivalent about the review. Either way, saw them on the 30th. They are truly a well-oiled machine now.
questionable vocals? wanking? arrangements.....haphazard? other passages....a little forced? though i agree with the rating and the whole giving it a few listens thing, what the hell album was this dude listening to? very cohesive effort. amazing album starts to finish. it plays like a good book reads. i too saw them on the 30th. i saw badaxe there....he's pretty gay.
"Mastodon continue to employ those questionable vocals some many derisively label neo-grunge or worse, nu-metal" haha wow. grow up. haha
thought this album was a 9 when i got it a month ago but it does not have quite the replay value that i thought it would. Definitely a high 8 though
This album was done way better a couple years ago by Into Eternity.
"This album was done way better a couple years ago by Into Eternity." So what instrument do you play in the band?
You all have way too much time on your hands.....if you like it, listen to it. If you don't, quit wasting your time. Love the album, by the way.
Love this album and I totally agree with this review.
Peep my new thrash band...we sound like ATG. Word!
Could have summed it up by saying "Amazing album, but everything is terrible besides the last song." Awful review, incredible album.
prog aspects are total shit, however there are good parts. if you're looking for prog, find a f*cking prog band
Wow! I finally came across a review I agree with on this site. I was starting to get very dissapointed with this site. The reviews suck and are way off and are very biased, and obviously biased which makes things even worse.
