Crack The Skye (Reprise)

Gorgeously combining multiple influences into a cohesive whole, Mastodon brings the layered vocals of Alice In Chains, a grandiose scope of Ozzy or Zeppelin and a modern, shifting time-signature attack that owes something to Tool or Monster Magnet (though maybe not quite as grim as the former nor as sleazy as the latter). Why the rock press are salivating over this record's crossover potential is that while Mastodon have previously exhibited chops and ambition to be world dominating, Crack The Skye brings melodic hooks, hatched by Pearl Jam/Springsteen producer Brendan O'Brien. The hammer of the gods will drive their ships to new lands, indeed.
