    That's the worst album of the world: the worst sounds and the worst music of the worst band ¿What happened with Mastodon?

    This is a horrible mess. There's barely a decent song in here - it's one trite riff after another, and some meandering vocals. What the hell happened to Mastodon?

    A random assortment of riffs and notes with little sense of continuity. There are no songs per se, just section after pointless section. Boring at best, frustrating and unlistenable at worst.

  1. Hearing Blood Mountain in its entirety is like awaking from a coma to discover you have working ears. [Oct 2006, p.206]
  2. Put simply: there isn't a bad track on 'Blood Mountain', which will be seen as the metal release of this year, on whichever level you care to mention.
  3. Yes, sometimes more is better. [21 Sep 2006, p.82]
