2 stars This is the first album that i listen from this american band called Mastodon, and i Will stop here. There are good few momments in this album, but the problem that i have listen to this is the type of voice from the singer, horrible, sometimes reminds me the style from Ozzy and Rob Zombie, and sometimes sounds very Nice, really, but the most part of the songs sounds horrible. in terms of the progressive aspect, this band lacks deeply in it, i hear more metal style than progressive stuff, industrial momments, trash and more trash. CZAR is a interesting track, as i said, there are good momments of instrummental parts, and the melody is very repetitive, I enjoy this kind of music with friends, but to listen to this and pay all my attention this is not my cup of tea. If you like Rob zombie this will be a good album for you, but if you like more tight and fine compositions forget it. this band like another bands of the genre are good musicians just listen Ghost of karelia, and all the instrumments sounds very good, amazing, but i think that something is missing here, the songs are good but lacks in creativity, these type of sounds have been heard before, so there is nothing new, I will recommend Two Songs: Oblivion and The last Baron, this last one it is very nice, with good feelings in the vocal parts, and the melody is very epic and transports into a different World, 3:56 is an example of that, very good as well, But I Prefer bands Like Into eternity than Mastodon.

2. 5 stars
