An album like Remission deserves a good different review…I thought the most alienated ideas, but I came to mind of a little thing I used to make in primary school, flowing ideas, or flowing thoughts.

Ideas storm:
-Remission is an incredible album, it has all the musical twists you could ask for in a band, melodies(Ol'e Nessie, a great song with an incredibly overwhelming harmonious intro), Brutal riffs(March Of The Fire Ants, Workhorse), The most complex Drums in the genre(every single song is a good example), the most awesome guitars (with some slow yet great solos, check Trampled under Hoof).

  For a debut this is absolutely marvellous. I'll even go as far as to say that it may be one of the band's best, though its sludgy and raw production could prove otherwise some people's opinions. Let's face it though, the longer songs such as 'Elephant Man' and 'Trainwreck' still eschewed the band's talents remarkably well.

It is their best imo everything is almost perfect and there's a lot of variation, it does not sound like a debut at all

I just think this album is so underrated. No mastodon album is necessarily that bad, (maybe a couple that are slightly weak), but 'Remission' is an example of band quickly and maturedly finding their stance in the metal world.

Rating: 9 This is in my top 5 mastodon albums, and always will be, up until the next release, at which time it will undoubtedly be in my top 6 mastodon albums ^^. Fanboyism aside and as already mentioned, amazingly mature yet bone-crushingly enjoyable debut album. Perhaps less of a focused assault as the three albums following, the album married shattering heavy passages with satisfying melodic elements beautifully, foreshadowing what these guys had coming out of their music-holes in the years to come. Brann Dailor? Phwoar.


P.S. Mother Puncher.

Did you just say "eschewed the band's talents remarkably well."?

Eschew
verb
to abstain or keep away from; shun; avoid: to eschew evil.

Are you trying to tell us all that 'Elephant Man' and 'Trainwreck' abandoned the bands talents remarkably well? Because that doesn't really make any sense.

Rating: 8 Great little album - love the sound and the sheer dementedness of it. And I love the cover - exploding horses for the win.

Shame they went away from this sound after Leviathan.
