This record delivers. It reminds me of a more basic, bluesier version of the earlier Mastodon stuff. Not as technical, but nicely layered. Lots of the same arpeggiated guitar intros, plenty of instrumentals, ambient interludes. Vox sound kind of like Hot Water Music or Fugazi with a metal edge. If you’re into the more rock-oriented stuff on Relapse, this record won’t disappoint.
