This is a great album for any prog metal fan. There really isn't a weak song on here. One of the best of 2009!

Technical Prog Rock
A modern classic - Mastodon's highest peak.
Something between the 70's Prog-Rock, Prog Metal & Stoner Rock, and yet very modern, relevant & innovative.
You can find here riffs a-la Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd's influence, and it's still very Mastodon-ish album.

Psychedelic, challenging, deep... And in the bottom line - it's a great album.

Technical Prog Metal
This whole album is probably best described as a flurry of crazy riffs - fortunately most of them are really cool! And there are plenty of crazy time signature parts, which I, of course, like immensely.

Experimental Prog Extreme Metal
This is the first Mastodon album that I get to listen to in full length - and I really like it. Usually I find (Post) Sludge Metal interesting musically, but the vocals put me off. Fortunately it is just one of many influences here, and I'd say it's more like a Post Doom/Independent/EMO album, with a heavy dose of Thrash thrown in. There is much experimentation going on, and they're never calculable.

Mainstream listeners might have a hard time digesting this very dense and inaccessible opus, metal-friendly prog fans will find it a very worthwhile listen.
