Mastodon - Crack the Skye (2009) Retail CD
I have Mastodon's previous releases, all of which i liked, but i always had slight reservations, because i could never spend too much time on them, my concentration would wander for some reason, was it that they weren't heavy enough ? were they trying to be too clever ? too ambitious? too pretenious. I've just played Crack the Skye 6 times in a row, problem solved,all they needed was a slight tweek here & there in their well oiled machine. Mastodon have refined their sound abit, come up with some fantastic & haunting melodies,ghostly but hooky choruses, the beautiful bits are more beautiful, themore… brutality although still brutal is more controlled. They've actually learned how to write a song or two. No doubt the hardcore fans will be disappointed saying the band have sold out, not so. They've just matured their sound and all the better for it. The busiest drummer in the world is still earning his wages + overtime, the complex arrangments & progression is very much at the front, just check out 9 1/2 glorious minutes of The Czar,wallow in how it twists and turns. This 37 minute gem is a short but magical journey. The only let down is, like all the finest hard rock albums. Its all over too quick & its back to the beginning to see what mystical delights you missed last time around. Its sounds as if the last couple of years of touring previous release Blood Mountain have really paid off because this is a work of slight genius. I really hope they don't keep us too long before the next release.
