5 stars Another great album by Mastodon. This is what you like to see, a band with a defined identity yet an evolving band.

Crack the Skye is a magnificent effort by the Atlanta quartet. With less erratic song structures yet still filled with those dissonant riffs and melodies that just make Mastodon so unique.

I must also note how vocals are the best yet. For a band that says they had no choice but to sing and scribble lyrics, the mixed vocals of the different members are more melodious here than before, and again very primal.

I waited several months to rush today for this album and was not disappointed. 5 stars to the best American-metal and a great progressive band.

Highlights: Oblivion, Quintessence, Crack the Skye, The Last Baron.

DAVA | 5/5 |
