@danny: yes, I agree that Blood Mountain is much better than CtS. I have a weird relationship with BM, I loved it when it came out, then I hated it for a long time. But it's been slowly growing on me since then. It's weird, it's the only Mastodon album that I think is best enjoyed when listening to individual songs rather than the entire album straight through. It's odd considering it's progressive nature, but I think as a whole it's just too much to absorb in one listen to make it enjoyable in that format. At least when it comes to this band (other bands that do prog/sludge, like Neurosis, are always best enjoyed in album format).

"It's odd considering it's progressive nature, but I think as a whole it's just too much to absorb in one listen to make it

that's an interesting statement Inveigh, esp considering you don't seem to have a problem jamming an entire Neurosis album

in one sitting. For me its the opposite, I can count on one hand the times I've listened to a Neurosis album all at once, while

with Mastodon (specifically on BM) if I hear one song it just makes me want to continue the album from that point on, or start

it from the top.



That's not to say I like Mastodon more than Neurosis, I find the latter to be far more rewarding in many ways, just sayin I dig

the flow on the earlier Mastodon albums, esp BM.

that's because pots left for a while and the review was taken down but it's like a description of a really vulgar forest ritual where like the blood mountain god cuts off the dicks of innocent bystanders while the bystander is surrounded by piss-laden turkeys who dance around him like those demon things in fantasia, and then bystander leaves with a gaping dickless wound and then he smokes shrooms and then a bear fucks the guy in the skull

I guess me and Inbred are more middle of the road Mast guys. I for one, think they were at their best when harmonizing their sludgy side with their prog side. I do love Remission almost as much as Lev and BM tho, although that stupid hidden track botches up the closure a bit.

I will say "Curl Of The Burl" is the catchiest thing they've ever written. They won't top that anytime soon.

since when did Mastodon writing "catchy" songs become desirable in any way?

....so to me, I find Seabeast to be one of their best songs. Do you find Seabeast to be catchy?

Since I don't remember the song, I'd have to say that's a negative.
