5 stars Leviathan, Mastodon's second full length album catches the band at a perfect balance between creativity and down-right rocking awesomeness. This is just one of those albums, that for me, is the purest music possibble, in that it manages to progress music without the slightest evidence of pretention. The music can be described as sludgy, thrashy and at times even bluesy. The boy's from Atlanta also wear their southern rock influences on their sleeves as perfectly demonstrated during a country lick out of nowhere in Megalodon which immediately does a 180 and segues into one of the most intense moments of the album. The album finally climaxes with the epic Hearts Alive which moves effortlessly from idea to idea until it reaches a giutar solo of pure blues/metal genius. If you like metal of any kind don't hesitate to pick up Leviathan. I'd stay away though if anything above 50 decibel's makes you cringe.
