|I always have to laugh when I hear "mainstream" music writers describe Mastodon as "sludgy." Their riffs are neither slow or (for the most part) downtuned, and the guitar tones are much cleaner than a real sludge-metal band like, say, Crowbar, or even those other critics' darlings, Queens of the Stone Age. Blood Mountain was heavy stuff at the time, at least for people who rarely ventured beyond the White Stripes or the Black Keys. That said, it is a fairly good album, with songs like "The Wolf is Loose," 'Crystal Skull," 'Sleeping Giant," "Circle of Cysquatch" and "Colony of Birchmen" standing out. All the instruments are very "busy," particular Brann Dailor's continuously tumbling drums. All the band members trade off on lead vocals, but I can't say that any of them have a particular distinctive voice. Not exactly stoner-rock, but there are some elements, like some heavily-flanged guitar here and there, and those effects-laden, spacey vocals in "Cysquatch."

|I find this more easily accessible than the super-complex follow-up, Crack The Skye. But at the same time, it's faster and more progressive than The Hunter. Mastodon are a band I've listened to off and on, in the hope that I would one day finally see what all the fuss is about, and while I generally enjoy them, they would never qualify as a favorite.
