Mastodon - Worst To Best

Title speaks for itself. Finally finished my discog for the band so why not make a list. For the record I'm not saying any of their albums are bad.
5Mastodon
The Hunter


Easily their weakest album both on the basis of songwriting and production. Not nearly as raw or as technical as their previous efforts. It's also their most bloated release despite being their "pop album".
4Mastodon
Remission


Remission has always rubbed me the wrong way for some reason. It's probably due to the album sounding a tad sloppy in comparison to it's predecessors.
3Mastodon
Blood Mountain


The last "traditional" record by the band. It's also the last "high concept" album by Mastodon. Other than that nothing else to point out about this album aside from it's various eccentricities.
2Mastodon
Crack the Skye


Where lots of bands falter when cleaning up their sound, Mastodon prevailed by improving on all fronts rather than just increasing the production values and calling it a day. Probably their most ambitious and well structured album to date.

Leviathan


When naming the best Mastodon album, there's really no contest. On all fronts Leviathan is the best album whether it's for the musicianship, the concept, the production, or even the album's strange catch appeal which even rivals other efforts that were supposed to be catchy. It's not as difficult as Remission, nor as dense as Crack the Skye, or even as eccentric as Blood Mountain. All that aside it's still the best LP to date.
