    I've known about them since remission. Bought it and hated it. Bought the album with Curl of Burl on it and loved it and picked up crack the skye too. That's about all I like from them. Always up for giving the next album a shot since they don't repeat themselves much.

    I'd argue for post-CTS, I feel like that's when their true downhill started, especially since the title track had the octave-tuned 6th string callback to March of the Fire Ants on Remission.

    Once More > all their other albums. The more variation the better. I will say that Leviathan is probably the best no-frills-....-you metal album, but I need music with more substance and dynamics.

    Blood Mountain has way more dynamics, and way better songs.

    I would say Blood Mountain is the pinnacle of Mastodon. Easily my favorite album from them.

    If the people who only like post-CtS Mastodon are filthy casuals, does that make the ones that like their entire catalogue the only tr00 fans? :fawk:

    Nice! For me it's their *wild card* album - I always find something new and enjoyable in it when I spin it. Leviathan for the chugz, and because I love the theme of the record, Crack The Skye for epic storytelling.

    I liked the middle section, but overall it didn't floor me like I was hoping.

    Ah yes, the band that continues to put out albums that I don't dislike.?

    I figured I would love or hate them by now, especially considering the quantity of output....

    I offer this one word review : "Meh-stadon."

    I liked it. I'm glad that all 3 songs seem to be written with different things in mind. This album overall to me has more of a blood mountain feel than a OMRTS/Hunter feel.
