9/10 Greg B. Customer review, 6th February 2017
Mastodon are one of the most important bands of the 21st century, on record and as a live act. Their albums are all unique to each other, yet they all distinctly have the Mastodon sound. They are a band that have inspired countless waves of younger metal bands and are loved by fans of all genres. The Leviathan album is a concept album about Herman Melville’s epic novel ‘Moby Dick’, as well as running with the theme of water as an elemental force. Other Mastodon albums are also themed on the elements, like Remission tackled fire, Blood Mountain dealt with earth and Crack the Skye was about aether. Leviathan still feels fresh and exciting as it did when it was released way back in 2004. If Leviathan does not go down in the history books, something has gone wrong. A near flawless album by an incredible band.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 15th November 2015
Hey, I admit it. I'm not the biggest Mastadon fan out there. I enjoy their music. I think they've got a manic man on the drums and their guitarists are on speed. The main problem is the vocalist, who has a very soft, in the background, weak delivery, his voice just doesn't quite fit the music. But yes Mastodon are a decent band, but groundbreaking they are not. The great musicianship and songs are still here though -- after all, Leviathan is far better than most modern metal albums - I've heard anyway.
