This is the best album ever. Not really, but it's fantastic. The Czar blew my mind the first time I heard it. And The Last Baron is probably their best song.

From LedZep
Have it on my chart as their best album, mainly cause Crack The Skye is my fave Mastodon song. But is it truly better than Blood Mountain and Leviathan I’ll never be able to tell. It’s a masterpiece surely, one of the many fine moments of their carrer. Wonderful musicians and complete weirdos (positively weird ofc).

El cuarto álbum de los de Atlanta ponía fin a una serie de discos conceptuales basados en los cuatros elementos. El disco tiene una temática cuanto menos original, pues narra la historia de un parapléjico cuya única forma de transportarse es a través de los viajes astrales. El viaje nos llevará a sitios tan dispares como la Rusia de los zares o el reino de los espíritus. Mastodon consiguió elaborar un disco cargado de riffs intrincados pero con altas dosis de melodía, con un estilo refinado después de tres discos de aprendizaje. Es sin duda la obra más progresiva y compleja en la discografía del grupo. Cabe destacar que este es el primer álbum en el que el batería Brann Dailor toma protagonismo como vocalista principal, uniéndose de esta forma a la genial pareja formada por Hinds y Sanders. Representa la perfección absoluta y mira de tú a tú a las viejas leyendas.

When I was in high school I used to love this album, every single note sounded amazing to me. I still consider this as their best work, a little masterpiece in its genre.

Mastodon has just been such a great band since the beginning, and slowly but surely turning into a legendary metal act, and this is their best album.

Very progressive and heavy, but can provide a good hook, something not many bands can do with such conviction.

It's albums like this & Leviathan and songs like The Czar that make them the greatest in metal of their generation.

My 2nd all-time favorite album, after "Reign in Blood". "The Last Baron" is my favorite track here, with "The Czar" a close second.

I'm not a prog-metal listener, but Crack the Skye works perfectly for me.
