Review by Marty McFly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Errors and Omissions Team
4 stars Certainly not what I was expecting of "Western" soundtrack. But this EP proves that it's the way you can do that and get away with it (+ with happy fans of Metal).

It breaks another idea of mine. I never thought that Megan Fox will make it on front page (this album was yesterday's most viewed one, therefore because she is on the cover of this album, she is on front page - life is weird sometimes and quite joking guy)

Really, I'm aware that imagination of people is endless, as more and more insane combinations of different styles proves, I know that these things are happening, but Prog Metal doing songs based on Western themes, it's unique (as far as I know).

And Mastodon are the right one to do it.

20 minutes of regular songs + 12 more minutes of alternative ones (I wouldn't say unused, because they are used, here). Sadly, I haven't seen the movie yet, so I can't evaluate how it fits into Jonah Hex. It's too unusual to guess it.

And music itself is neat. No Death Metal growls, no weird experimental stuff, just good, old caliber Prog Metal (with a lot of changing paces, layering - especially in Indian Theme) doing takes on unexplored land for Metal (and I don't expect that much Western Metal will come in future, we're not talking about revolution here). Songs that you heard in Classic movies of this genre, done in way that I wouldn't be ashamed to hear on full studio album, just without vocals. Maybe it's more fitting and certainly changes the atmosphere, I don't lack them here at all.

4(+), surprisingly fine. I was worried before, I'm not now.

2 stars I have to say that I'm very surprised by the positive critique that Jonah Hex: Revenge Gets Ugly EP has received so far. To me, this release sounds more like a failed attempt at recording a soundtrack to a very flawed film. But before indulging into the music, let's touch upon the back-story behind this EP.

I've been following the production of the movie adaptation of Jonah Hex since the late-2008 announcement that Josh Brolin was taking on the lead role as the disfigured bounty hunter and the film's antihero protagonist. Since then I've been hyped about seeing this movie and imagine my joy when I heard the early rumor stating that Mastodon were writing score music for this production. This definitely sounded like a dream come true opportunaty since Mastodon had just released the excellent Crack The Skye which made me reconsider my previously indifferent opinion of their music.

The production of the movie suffered from creative differences, most notable for the writer/director duo of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor who quit the production in November 2008 meaning that a new director had to take over and reshoot most of the film. It was somewhere at this point that the new director, Jimmy Hayward, got in touch with Mastodon and asked them to do the soundtrack for the movie. The band went into the studio and delivered about an hour worth of material. Unfortunately, as it usually happens in movie business, many things occurred during the making of the picture and once the film was beginning to take shape it suddenly became clear to the makers (the ones that were yet to be fired) that the Mastodon's score didn't work in the context of the movie. The band was therefore asked to re-write their music which became quite a frustrating and much less inspired process for Mastodon. Luckily they pulled it off and the final product made it to the Jonah Hex: Revenge Gets Ugly EP.

This new version of the Jonah Hex score is described by the band-members as much moodier and the EP-opener Death March is a perfect example of just that. This 9 minute monster starts with a 3 minute repetition of the intro riff which then transitions into the even more repetitious main riff. There are a few minor variations of the sound here and there but it doesn't make this composition less tedious to sit through. Unlike most score composers who tend to write short scene based variations of a score, Mastodon chose to write an unnecessarily long main number that I honestly can't see getting continuous play in the 85 minute movie. The Alternate Version of Death March is actually a bit more interesting thanks to the added new guitar layer that makes the experience sound more varied in the long run. Still, I can't help but be reminded of the notorious 10 minute track called We Will Fall by the Stooges.

The remaining three compositions are much shorter and more varied in their tone. Indian Theme and Train Assault sound almost like tracks that didn't make it to Crack The Skye, which should be regarded as a compliment on my part. These tracks don't waste any time and establish their motivations right off the bat which is also the tone that I've felt when watching the Jonah Hex trailer. Clayton Boys is much less prominent, but even that track makes a whole lot more sense once you hear the Alternate Version of it.

The movie received highly negative critical reception and the 7th slot position on its opening weekend made the film a box office bomb, grossing only 20% of its initial budget before dropping out of the charts in U.S.. This is also what I imagine the fate of this soundtrack is shaping out to be. I'd be honestly surprised if anyone actually remembered this EP a year from now. Of course there are always the collectors/fans who are willing to spend their money on any new material released by their favorite band. As for everyone else, you might as well stay away from this record.

**** star songs: Indian Theme (4:10) Train Assault (4:13) Clayton Boys (Alternate Version) (3:13)

*** star songs: Clayton Boys (3:13) Death March (Alternate Version) (9:07)

** star songs: Death March (8:52)

Review by Any Colour You Like
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars What you essentially have here, is a bunch of cinematic instrumental scores, penned and performed by Mastodon. Except, you really don't.

"Death March" is intensely boring. It's supposed to build tension through repetitive slabs of guitar, but not only is the guitar one-dimensional, but the progression is oh-so predictable. The idea isn't bad, it's just so damned uninspiring. The only highlight is that Dailor's percussion makes the run time much easier once he kicks in after a few minutes of drudgery. "Clayton Boys" is more interesting and complete, of that there is no doubt. The psychedelic edges are pleasant, but again, it's a little underwhelming until the final minute or so, when things get taken up a notch or three. Thankfully this latter section improves the feel of the track, but alas, it's all too fleetingly ephemeral to truly make an impact upon the listener. "Indian Theme" carries on in the same cast, albeit with more of a sludgy, grimy and dirty vibe. This is the most obviously Mastodon-like track here, and has enough depth to keep the one's interest throughout, even though it doesn't really go anywhere in particular. "Train Assault" begins in an ominous fashion, but like the rest of this EP, it's strengths are outweighed by a terminal lack of spontaneity and excitement. Sure, it's performed well enough, as one would expect. But it doesn't evoke enough emotion - perhaps it was better with the film, but I haven't seen that either. The final two tracks are mere remixes, and change nothing that warrants further discussion, apart from the addition of a decent guitar section in "Death March" (which makes me think it's probably better than the original).

My problem with this EP is that it's just so damned prosaic and predictable. Slow build up, mid tempo riff, spacey external sounds, louder riff. Rinse, wash, repeat.

4 stars This Ep is effective for what was made for. Now as a huge Mastodon fan I got all excited and went out and bought this as soon as I heard about it. Well as it turns out this is one of the best movie sound tracks ever but not much else. I mean for people like me it was just good to hear some new ... (read more)

4 stars For people who, like me were unsure whether this EP would suite their tastes, or whether it was even a good move for the band, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Mastodon don't seem like the type of band to release this kind of non-studio album career aside, given their penchant for seriou ... (read more)
