5.0 out of 5 stars Mastodon does it again..., 20 July 2014
This review is from: Once More Round The Sun (Audio CD)
I was worried in the run-up to the release of Mastodon's new album, titled "Once More 'Round the Sun". The old adage of "every band has a bad album" rang in my head and with a band with a penchant for experimentation like Mastodon, a misstep felt like a very real possibility.

Now that I have the album and have had the chance to live with it, I realise how foolish I was to not expect Mastodon to knock it out of the park, as they have done with every previous album. OMRtS is easily the band's most accessible album, following the path laid by their previous LP "The Hunter" but despite this, the band haven't made any attempts to dull down their trademark complexity and sludgy sound. There aren't many bands that can write songs that are simultaneously technical and anthemic, but OMRtS has them in bucket loads, with opener "Tread Lightly" and "Ember City" being personal highlights.

OMRtS adds yet more variety to Mastodon's already huge arsenal of tracks and should provide the platform for the band to reach even greater heights.
