This was my 5th time seeing Mastodon and as far as I am concerned they have all been great shows. I know there have been some less than favorable reviews on this site, but I have never been disappointed. I was on the rail in front of Bill and I didn't notice any problems with the sound or with Brent. It was really cool to see Crack The Skye performed in it's entirety again. I am still not tired of that disc at all. I was slightly disappointed that they skipped Ol'e Nessie, but the set list was still very good.

Between The Buried And Me.... sorry, but that band is

The surprise of the night for me was Baroness. I know there has been a lot of talk on this board about them but I guess I never really gave them much of a listen. The guitarists were great and the rhythm section was very tight. The songs were nice and heavy. Not a big fan of the vocals but I will definitely be checking them out in the near future. They remind me somewhat of Kylesa. I would like to see them on the next Mastodon tour, but with a direct support slot with a longer set.
The world weighs on my shoulders but what am I to do?
