Probably my favorite band of all time, and I think they need a thread. I saw them live for the first time and they were amazing. They definatly have a style of their own that is hard to compare to. What does everyone else think about these guys, discuss your thoughts.

The Deluxe Edition cover art looks much more like classic Mastodon:

Remission is the only physical Mastodon album I need to obtain. I should really stop putting it off but it's hard to keep up with everything when there are great new albums being released all the time. I should probably put it on my birthday/Christmas wish list.

I was off Mastodon for some time due to them playing so shit at Big Day Out Sydney 2010, with Brent Hinds acting like a petulant child and playing behind speaker stacks and walking off stage because he was upset about something. Nice one...

Anyway, listened to Crack The Skye recently...and they still manage to surprise me with their genius song-writing. I'm now looking forward to The Hunter.

Yeah, when they are drinking before the shows, etc., they sound awful live, but when they get onstage and play with effort they are a great live show. It's a shame that they have played so many shows poorly, but both times I saw them live it was in Atlanta and maybe they played top notch those times because they knew their close friends would be watching. Hope you catch them on a good night sometime.

Admittedly, I saw them the previous night at their own show (Big Day Out is a festival), and they were faultless.

I saw them a few weeks back and i can honestly say it was one of the strongest shows i've ever been to. It was probably also the best time to see them live as they weren't promoting Crack The Skye or The Hunter but played a good strong handfull of songs from their entire discography. And clearly, they had not been drinking before cause they played extremely tight! The vocal delivery was also much better than what you can hear on the Live at the Aragon DVD.

In other news, today they announced the full track list of The Hunter. Here it is:
Black Tongue
Curl Of The Burl
Blasteroids
Stargasm
Octopus Has No Friends
All The Heavy Lifting
The Hunter
Dry Bone Valley
Thickening
Creature Lives
Spectrelight
Bedazzled Fingernails
The Sparrow

The Limited Edition includes two bonus tracks called "The Ruiner" and "Deathbound", the latter we already know from its hilarious video :

I'm actually thoroughly impressed by that!!

It also shows what an awesome album it is, that it can be just played on one instrument and sound so great

...Welllll....haha

Guitar and piano are pretty much the exact same instrument believe it or not. Anything you play on guitar can be 100%, perfectly transcribed to a piano.

Riffs, Fills, & All

Of course, that doesn't make what he just did any less of an amazing feat! Kid's a Prodigy.

I wont lie, I'm pretty disappointed by The Hunter. Extremely weak album, especially in comparison to Crack the Skye, which was probably their most solid. Every time I hear The Hunter, I feel like I'm listening to some crappy pop-rock like The Black Keys or something. It's possible I just don't "get" this album, but it's like they completely sold out and threw virtually all the complexity in their songwriting out the window in exchange for something Ryan Seacrest would listen to.

Most likely, if you think this is a modern pop album. I hated Crack the Skye and I'm glad they trimmed their progressive influence down for this. It's still one of their weakest overall, but at least they're back to playing a sludgy stoner kind of album.

I personally quit listening to their albums after Blood Mountain.

I still give their new releases a spin when they drop, but to me, Blood Mountain was their last decent record.
