3.5 greatDaedus | September 2nd 13

A musically powerful experience- but every word spoken pulls it down, inch by inch, until it's just pretty good.

2.5 averageThat Black Guy | September 8th 13

Somehow my comments got removed. But again I repeat THIS IS NOT FUCKING METAL. No way in shape or form. I have no clue how this got labeled as such.

5.0 classiccisumkintups | August 29th 13

this album is a little too good, and i can only remember one part where an open string was hit in succession.

4.0 excellentRollieQuibbs | September 6th 13

Massive improvement over the first two albums. They could always play, but now they have some good songs to back up the raw skill.

5.0 classicMajorStupidity | September 5th 13

It is rare to see a band like Haken that manages to evoke such an emotional response with music that is so absolutely sincere, and well constructed that it really defines what music is capable of. Previous albums were already extremely strong entries for Haken and really set the bar high for this English group. However, Haken manages to soar above the bar with The Mountain. The album has no wasted space, no needless technicality, and no element ever feels out of place. This album is a masterpiece and anyone who claims to be a fan of Progressive rock or metal should give this album a try.

5.0 classicDan Phillips | September 2nd 13

Streaming this now, and it is completely tremendous. Dream Theater are my favourite band, but this album could/will likely be my album of the year, despite their new upcoming release. Any rating below 4.5 for this would seem just... wrong.

0.0 James Cunningham | August 27th 13

I already preordered this shit. Easily one of the best prog metal tracks I've heard a while. (Note: Do not assume this is Djent. It is NOT. It's like Modern Dream Theater minus everything that makes Dream Theater bad, but times a billion of what makes them good.)

5.0 classiclalchimiste | March 25th 14

One of the best records that came out recently. Everything from the epic lyrical concept to the vocal harmonies reminescent of Gentle Giant, Haken take you through a musical journey that you won't soon forget. A truly modern classic

Bump

4.0 excellentLambda | September 4th 13

Ross Jennings gives what may possibly be the best vocal performance of 2013 on The Mountain, and the other instruments are all exceptionally well-performed as well (some of those guitar solos are insane). There is a lot of fantastic material on this record- too many great parts to count. However, some of the lengthier songs are just too much so, and lose me in the winding structure and arrangements. Furthermore, the uneven atmosphere is a bit distressing. 4.2

4.5 superbNate | September 4th 13

Best prog metal album this year no doubt. r
