To get this off my chest immediately, 'Once More 'Round the Sun' is a culmination of all that Mastodon have nailed in the past. It contains elements from all their previous albums, with their progressive metal sound providing the backbone as ever. I'd say it's a combination of the pure metal from 'Blood Mountain' combined with the genre defying Mastodon progressive-ness of 2009's 'Crack the Skye' and the feel of 2011's 'The Hunter'. And like 'The Hunter' this new album doesn't have a central concept running through it, so each song feels individual, yet knitted perfectly into the overall scope of the album, it is such scope that 'Once More 'Round the Sun' matures with each listen, it's so layered with different sounds that it takes a couple of listents through at least, to fully start to appreciate what they've achieved here, this is not 'paint by numbers' music.

It's heavy, with technically interesting blasts of riffage, soaring choruses, smashing breakdowns and all laced together with their immense musical talent as a band, you can tell they love doing it and you can tell they will continue to develop whatever "genre" Mastodon come under... for now I'll leave it as the genre of 'Mastodon' perhaps.

You've got everything you'd want and more from the Mastodon of today here; epic opening passages and vocal choruses exhibited in opener 'Tread Lightly' and also 'The Motherload', unrelenting pace in 'Chimes at Midnight' and the amazing ability to seamlessly switch up the sound and tempo mid song. On a quick note, I'd also go as far to say that 'Tread Lightly' has one of the most enjoyable pre-solo passages I've ever heard from Mastodon.

I've been a Mastodon fan since the days of Remission and Leviathan and have watched them change and grow into a completely different beast from the Metal sludge monsters they started off as.

Without going into too much detail this album is a great combination of old meets new Mastodon. Much closer to the excellent Blood Mountain in comparison. The song writing has also made a giant leap too!

I've only heard the album a few times so far but I can see this competing with Behemoth for album of the year with the Heavy Metal faithful.

Is this Mastodon's defining moment? Who knows. But in years too come don't bet against it when it comes to the critics announcing the band's best of their stellar back catalogue!

5/5

There's not much more I can say that the other 5 star reviews haven't' said already, but this album is absolutely brilliant in my humble opinion. People whining about how it isn't the same band any more really can not hear good music when it's right in front of them. Mastodon, like Opeth (another band who release consistently good albums) are a progressive band, in many ways. The music is progressive, definitely, but the band's style has also progressed, becoming much more concise but without losing the creativity. They music is merely a representation of where they are in their lives now (something master Devin Townsend likes to point out whenever he releases his consistently good albums) and they are not the same people who made Remission. People forget that music is a representation of it's creator, making it a very personal thing, and we as fans need to respect that. They don't write for us, they write for themselves and are so much better for it.

The songs on this album (especially the first 5 or so) are incredibly catchy - and catchy is a great thing! I've been humming the chorus's to The Motherload and High Road for the past few days and I can't get enough! I recently saw them live at Sonisphere Festival and they played some material off of the album and it blew me away entirely. The second half of the album is way more psychedelic and resembles past Mastodon a bit more, with some (well, most!) of the riffs being absolutely huge and some really nice instrumentation and arranging between the entire band. And Brent's solo's are as wicked as ever!

Definitely my favourite 'Don album and I hope they continue in this direction with more emphasis on melody and Bran's voice whilst sill keeping the complexity and the proggyness, and if not, then I'll love whatever they do regardless.

Although I haven't bought my own copy yet, I listened to the itunes stream several times. I'm one of many who really responded to Mastodon when Crack the Skye was released and I genuinely prefer the more melodic side to the band and even after listening to the back catalogue of albums and of course The Hunter which followed, I still feel that 'Skye' is their most well rounded album and remains my favorite. That being said, Once More 'Round the Sun gives it a run for it's money. Although not every track on the album is great i.e 'Chimes' and 'High Road', the album as a whole is fantastic with 'Halloween' being the personal highlight for me, potentially being one of Mastodon's best songs yet. Don't disregard the negative reviews nor the overly positive ones but do yourself a favor, give it a listen and decide for yourself!
