    Hold on a second, gotta change underwear....

    This album was originally planned to be released combined with "Emperor Of Sand", then it was going to be a Brent Hind's solo album and I guess they've now decided to release it as a Mastodon record. I can safely say that's this album is going to be an album of the year candidate, like everything else Mastodon puts out. Whoa!

    I'm surprized that the band is releasing another so quick after their last. I was somewhat disappointed with Brann Dailor's project. "Arcadea" from this year. Progressive and some psych elements but too electronic.

    Definitely interested but also a little leery due to @joe s statement above. Hopefully , NOT electronic at all....

    Oh wait, two different members...never mind. I seriously doubt Hind would venture into that area...at least i hope.

    That and the fact the Arcadea style was saved for a side project is a good sign Mastodon won't venture that route. I do hope however they continue to evolve.

    I don't think the band will take that route. Gotta give credit to Dailor for trying something new. It's not a bad album. I'd give it a 5/10.

    I found Arcadea enjoyable. Sort of like an electronic version of Mastodon. Far from a masterpiece though.

    I just listened to it once. I'll give it another spin sometime. I do like progressive electronic but more in the vein of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, etc.

    :bow: :bow: :bow:

    Turns out it's just a 4-track EP then. Would have loved a whole album, but OK, that'll have to do.
