Band is good at mashing riffs together and that's what they shoulda stuck too, this is watered down schlock for the most part.

Yeah BM was hugely unfocused and suffered from a lack of direction.

wolf is loose was one of the few songs that actually had good musicianship but now we're back to vocals..

the problem about the songwriting on here is that it's so boring, it's the same simple structures repeated throughout every song which makes the record such a monotonous listen after the first time, for me anyways

Plus no overall theme or 'storyline' to make it feel cohesive, seriously just an incoherent collection of average songs

Yeah cuz every album has to have a concept or theme and can't just be a collection of short, sweet and

catchy music. Do you listen to pop?

the songs arent sweet tho, for hte most part



catchy maybe.. sometimes. but most of these songs seem very bland and watered down compared to the earlier material, even blood mountain which at least had some interesting genre bending material on it (though not always wonderfully executed)

Not at all, but Mastodon's strongly conceptual releases are definitely my favourites, and I would not call anything here sweet or catchy

agreed. lamentably, this record only features the "short" part.

Demi that's a different argument though. It's one thing not to like the songs, fair enough. But to criticize the album for not following a certain theme is ridiculous.

That was in reply to Keyblade btw



I agree MeatSalad...



"You know how we took ourselves really seriously with Crack The Skye and in doing so made our best album? Why don't we go in the complete opposite direction and make a goofy and unfocused album with track titles featuring words like "gasm" and "fingernails", and make the artwork and production really shoddy? It'll be really 'zany' and 'wacko' dude, and smack of effortlessness bro... maybe we'll feature on a few Adult Swim shows!"
