3 stars Mastadon simply is not my style. Personally, I find one of the most facinating parts of music (and especially in Prog) the vocals. They really capture you and bring you into the song so much more. Look around at the other Prog vocalists: John Anderson, Peter Gabriel, even the harder acts have a James LaBrie or a Bruce Dickerson. Mastadon just doesn't quite fall into the same category to me. Overall the album is a solid effort though. Highlights are Sleeping Giant, Capillarian Crest and most of all This Mortal Soil. After hearing how great this album was in an article of a guitar magazine I subscribe to I thought I'd give it a shot. Unless you dig nu metally type progressive, don't get this. If you do it'll probably be one of your favorite albums (and you should probably read the other reviews, as it'll give you a view closer to your own; mine's just for the others)
