Pursue happiness with diligence.

With The Hunter, Mastodon back to the days of Blood Mountain, with a material more concise and less prog-oriented. Yet this album offers a nice complexity, even with songs not exceeding 5 minutes. Definitvamente is my second favorite album after the stupendous and progressive Crack the Skye.

In fact, this is (apparently) his most accessible album, but in no time it becomes clear that they are selling. There is a great deal of weight in the Curl of The Burl (with that crazy clip) Blasteroid, Dry Bone Valley, Octopus Has No Friends. But as always, the tracks longer stand out, especially the two longer, the fiaxa title and psychedelic epic The Sparrow, which closes the album beautifully (seriously, this must be the most beautiful song they've done). Another thing I like is the greater involvement of Brann Dailor on vocals. In my humble opinion, he is the best of the three vocalists of the band, their melodic singing serving great counterpoint to Troy Sanders' hoarseness aggressive and Brent Hinds' nasal voice.

4,25 stars, rounded to 5.
