    exactly, from my point of view anyways.

    I think all their albums are 5 star ones and I don't think many bands are that consistent.
    Mastodon are really THAT GOOD to my ears.

    digging these videos from Metal Hammer too

    Was guested listed by Brent for the SLC gig, had some fun preshow but they had to head out to Denver right after our show, so didn't hang for more than an hour or so after the gig. Got to meet all the guys, mainly partied with Brent but they were all really cool guys. Played a great set, the venue they were at sounded top notch too. Gojira was the tightest band I've ever seen, so god damn heavy.

    does anyone own the 2xLP version of crack the skye? i refuse to buy the single disc version (with shortened songs) but i'm also having a really hard time justifying dropping $150 on the deluxe version. which is also making me wonder if i should just spend the $70 on the new album so i don't have the same issue down the line. :/

    I think the LP might be a good investment. Might not be either.

    Had no idea the 2xLP version of Crack the Skye had longer songs.

    hmm. I didn't either and I don't think I even recall noticing any missing sections or anything like that. Is there any proof to this?

    Wasn't aware a longer CTS existed

    There is an instrumental CTS though.

    i'm pretty sure it's not longer, it's that the single disc vinyl version is shorter, or at least that's my understanding.

    here's the 2xLP on discogs.

    on amazon's product page for the single disc version, all the tracks are listed as "vinyl album version" which i've never seen before, so i assumed they were shorter edits of the songs. especially because putting that album on only two sides of vinyl is really pushing the time limits.

    also, i'm assuming that, much like the 2xLP 45rpm version of blood mountain vs. the single disc version at 33rpm (i own both), the sound quality is VASTLY improved by the heavyweight pressing and 45rpm mastering.

    so, shop radio cast has the new album for $36.99, and it's still a 2xLP, but it doesn't say anything about it being 180g or the double-gatefold sleeve...thoughts? i'm thinking of just getting it from them.

    I got the Live at Brixton LP at my local record store today. Was surprised to see it, RSD was like a month ago, right? And they still had two copies! I don't even have a record player, or a vinyl collection, but I think I'm going to have to buy a record player now.

    Hey @eversonpoe , the venue where I saw Mastodon is called the Showbox @ Sodo, it's by the Mariners and the Seahawks stadium. For me is not the best venue in Seattle, I was close to the stage for that picture but the venue is actually quite big (long), and still it was packed. And for some reason there were lots and lots of tall people at the concert (and I'm short) so it was quite difficult to find a vantage point where I could watch the concert. It's kinda difficult to describe that place, but it's not the best place to catch a show if you're short.

    The "longer" one is the regular songs, they were just shortened a bit for the single-disc vinyl pressing because of time restrictions.

    The 2xLP Crack 45RPM and the 1xLP 33RPM I believe are the same length. I don't own the 2xLP but bought the 1xLP at the show to have the band sign (the one posted above) and listen to it last night and no difference in song lengths/segues/etc.

    also, the image that pops up near the end (of the band) is HILARIOUS.

    ^^ Bretts little riff at the end there was awesome. If the album has a lot of his twangy surf type stuff like he did on Crack The Skye or with West End Motel, I'll be in heaven.

    They also did "behind the scenes" stuff for Blood Mountain, CTS, and The Hunter, too. Also possibly Leviathan, I can't remember. The BM and CTS extras are pretty shit quality videos though, not sure if they were ever part of any official releases or what the deal is with those. IIRC the band added the Hunter extras to YouTube themselves.

    The making of BM, CTS and Hunter were included with the album versions that came with the dvd.
    I was hoping the new one would have a dvd too. Oh well glad they are on Youtube at least.

    I'm gonna hold out a bit longer for them to announce a deluxe CD version. If there isn't one by the end of the end of the month, I'll just grab the regular version I guess. The deluxe LP looks gorgeous, but I can't afford a turntable setup at the moment.
