Their worst yet.

That would be The Hunter for me.

Their worst yet. Pretty disappointed with the whole thing

The Hunter was their bottom for me and I don't see things getting much more dull from there. Is it really?

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

The Hunter at least had some balls and some semi interesting riffing at times, this album just seems completely void of inspiration. It's a shame because I thought their last album was a totally catchy and all around fun/enjoyable rock album, but this is going in the complete opposite direction quality-wise.

It's alright.. I thought Once More Round The Sun was better though.

I don't see why people are bashing this, I find it a very good record! A step back to their older style, yet keeping elements from the refreshing Once More Round The Sun. Great riffs as always

^True dat. The opener is somewhat ok but then delves into some stupid hard rock/melodic rock shite.

This comment gave me cancer and I don't even love the album.

"Ancient Kingdom" is such a cool song. That chorus is so uplifting.

Dat's true. The first one minute..., hmm...interesting...then...where are the stoner and progressive parts ? The last song even reminds me of Guns n Roses....hmm...holy shit...

For me it's a slight improvement over the recent two, so would agree with those saying it's their best since CtS.
18 years with a consistent line-up, producing 7 excellent albums. A rare achievement. Let's hope it continues.

I like OMRTS bit this is still better! Super catchy songs and some past elements like some of you said before. Also, there are very elaborated choruses (Andromeda!!!) and production/mixing is awesome. Scorpion Breath, Andromeda and Roots Remain are superb. Even i like Show Yourself

It's.... OK-ish, I guess. But I just know (I think?) Mastodon are capable of doing so much more than just "OK." Considering The Hunter, OMRTS, and now this, I've kinda resigned myself to the fact that we're probably not getting anything even close to the first 4 albums out of them again.

Can we make a small community of people here agreeing "Show Yourself" is one hell of addiction?!

or

Is it me only?!

I honestly think OMRTS was far more interesting than Blood Mountain to be honest. But this album is definitely their worst so far. I'd say The Hunter is just barely more enjoyable
