    More boring than expected. Leviathan remains best.

    • Dave Trohl

      i was pretty underwhelmed myself. i’m gonna go back to listening to “Blasteroid”, since that’s the last time i remember being floored by Mastodon.

      • MyDarkPassenger

        Stargasm. Very underappreciated tune.

      • G Scotty

        Stargasm is one incredible jam

      • MyDarkPassenger

        Apparently 14 people agree. I thought that was a bit of a hidden gem for me. I like it better this way

    • SpinSwimScream

      I really liked ‘Remission’ and ‘Leviathan,’ but ‘Blood Mountain’ was definitely my favorite.

  • Crowbar233

    I love it.
    I like you Mastodon, you can come over and fuck my sister.

    • Plethora

      My vote for CS right here.

  • jrr

    Damn, missed it. Warner Bros is on a roll lately,

  • KillingTime

    That’s about all the Mastodon I do.

  • sickboy_xl

    I guess I’ll sit in the corner of the schoolyard away from everybody and spin my Crack the Skye vinyl. Fuck it. I love that stuff! Remission, Leviathan, Blood Mountain and Crack the Skye are all gold in my book.

    • NoSalvation

      You forgot Lifesblood, and i loved The Hunter, maybe give it another listen.

    • MyDarkPassenger

      Crack the Skye is my fave too. Then Blood Mountain, Leviathan, The Hunter, and Remission. That order. Its kinda like rating SI swimsuit models though. I’d take any one at any time.

    • G Scotty

      I don’t understand why people hate on Blood Mountain so much (not here, just in general when ranking Mastodon albums). While its not front to back my favorite, The Wolf Is Loose is by and far my favorite track they do.

      • SpinSwimScream

        I don’t see how it’s possible for anyone to dislike Blood Mountain. I like every single track on it. Easily my favorite Mastodon album.

    not even close to anything from Crack The Skye and back
    nothing special
    hope the full album is great though

  • DeadHearts

    Weak but not bad. Sounds like a filler sing of sorts so hopefully the album as a whole will still kick ass.

  • SadClownBalls

    Yet another song they will not be able to pull off live….their singing is so sub par live….
