It's hard to top the unfuckwithable trio of Remission, Leviathan, and Blood Mountain in my opinion, but this definitely comes close. Strange, since based on the previews, I thought I was gonna hate it. Probably gonna be in my top 10 this year!

Which raises an even larger debacle for me: they're coming to Chicago the same day as Between the Buried and Me, Animals as Leaders, and Tesseract! I already have VIP meet and greet tickets for that tour, so I'll probably keep my commitment and go to that. But hot damn, I would love to see the support tour for this album.

Mastodon have never been a band to shy from touring, chances are they'll be touring off this record 'til 2013 at the least, so you'll get another chance to see them. That Btbam gig and line up may not happen again!

To be honest, my feelings about this are mixed. I was prepared for it to be album of the year after they announced a return to a heavier sound, but with a few exceptions, that didn't happen. I was really disappointed by it, and it took me a bit of time to get over that. The album itself, disregarding what I thought it would be, ranges from decent to mediocre. It mostly sounds like Mastodon's attempt to create a prog-rock album with elements of their own unique style, and they did pull it off. The problem is that it isn't memorable. The songs are just not that good. I may warm to it more, but Mastodon had something unique going for them before CTS, and they seem to have lost that going on an increasingly proggier and softer path, which may be what the band wants to do, but they just don't do it that well.

Crusher, Behemoth, Ole Nessie, and March are good but I rarely even listen to those to be honest.
