3.5 greatTravis Montgomery | June 27th 12

Par for the course basically. The majority of this live album is stuff from "Oblivion", so it that's your cup'o tea then you'll be right at home here; but for those of us that prefer Mastodon's older work this might be a bit of a letdown. As with all live albums, it's a bit bittersweet... I mean, yeah it's great music, but you just can't recreate the intense experience of a live metal concert. Nothing against the band... I've always loved the band and look forward to many more years with them... but this just isn't for me; Maybe my ultra "anti-live album" upbringing by my grandfather has tainted me in this respect. 3.4/5

Good material hurt by some poor live vocals. Worth a listen and rare revisit, mostly because of the older tracks at the end.

Mastodon puts on one hell of a show at the Aragon. Their muscianship is top notch and the trippy visuals help to add to the already trippy subject material of Crack the Skye. Mastodon even superbly plays some of their old material with the best being the material from Remission. Troy Sander's vocals are the standout during the performance. His vocal range has improved a lot and he still proves he can growl and belt harsh vocals with the best of them. Bill Kelliher's vocals on the Remission songs and Bran Dailor's vocals on the Crack the Skye songs are also highlights. The only low points on this DVD are Brent Hind's vocals which are atrocious in comparison to everyone else' and the fact that Mastodon barely displays any emotion when playing. Overall though, this is an excellent Live DVD. No where near as good as such classics as Nirvana's or Alice in Chain's MTV unplugged but still very good. Any fan of Mastodon should own (download) this.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting a lot with this DVD and I wasn't even planning on getting it but I had some spare cash and I was interested after seeing positive feedback on it. The concert itself is very good. I was there was more from their other albums but I really liked Crack The Skye so I am not complaining. The movie is pretty neat as well.

Sounds great, Crack The Skye in it's entirety is immense and some pretty nifty song choices in Circle Of Cysquatch and Aqua Dementia. No March Of The Fire Ants is disappointing but The Bit is a great cover.

3.5 greatAlex Newton | March 19th 11

Thank goodness they mixed the vocals way down. Mastodon plays everything like -- or better than -- the album, sometimes a bit faster...basically it rocks. The unorthodox song choices from Blood Mountain (Circle of Cysquatch) and Leviathan (Aqua Dementia) at first seem odd, but in concert sound terrific. They also get big points for deciding before the show that everything that happened on stage would be on the record: no overdubs, no re-takes. This is their show, warts and all...and it is awesome.

4.0 excellentGeometricSexEd | March 16th 11

Fantastic instrumentation, vocals are a bit lacking at times to even laughable at others, but the movie that they made for the tour is what really makes this a worthy buy

Very impressive. Musically amazing and even vocally not too bad. Brent is still pretty weak but Troy and Brann sound terrific. Moar Troy harsh vox plssss!!!!
