Well, I can understand why you'd say that, even though I myself thought it was a fantastic release.

I hope they throw some of the progressive elements back into the music somehow. The Hunter was way too straight forward for my tastes.

I hope it's similar to their 2009 masterpiece Crack The SKye.

Weird I thought "Leviathan" for many ("Remission" imho) is considered as their greatest achievement (MS ratings may speak different)... This new stuff will be average at best, but I bite my tongue if would be different.

You may be right, but Crack The Skye was the album that got me into metal. It has a very special place in my heart, I owe everything to this album! I admire all 5 albums they made, but for me Crack The Skye is their masterpiece.

I heard theyre using radioheadish and etheral ideas for songs, i honestly cant wait, i love bands who explore make risks and experiment, it shows theyre not afraid to do what they set out to ddo; make music and enjoy the fruits of their labour

Same for me as well. But they described their latest work as "eerie and spooky sounding" somewhere, and that doesn't sound right with mastodon. Lets wait and see what happens.

I personally think "Blood Mountain" and "Crack The Skye" was their best work. Hopefully they follow in that vein, as I didn't enjoy "The Hunter" very much.

I liked The Hunter just fine, but perhaps it seemed to suffer from being more sporadic as opposed to the coherent concept of the preceding albums.

I think they've been dropping the progressive and intrincate elements in their song structures. Just compare Remission with The Hunter. The first is mostly progressive, sludgy post-harcore stuff, but in The Hunter the songs are more easy listening but also less interesting. I liked Crack the Skye though. It was atmospheric and a good cut into Pink Floydish dimension, but they need to get back to a more raw sound like in Remission and Leviathan.

I loved The Hunter, I personally think it's the best rock album of the past 10 years.

I wouldn't say I hope it's better, just different. The progressive elements were good on Crack The Skye, taken to a very mature and multi-layered dimension. On The Hunter those elements were still there, but a little more accessible, which kinda dumbed down the album a bit for me. I'm really hoping they return to something of the Blood Mountain sound, that in my opinion was the transition period from their harsher, sludge-ier early albums and the more proggy territory that they're in now, so it was almost like a perfect fusion of each.
