  • Still one of my favorite albums of all time.
  • I really hope that they will someday produce another album in this style, this is Mastodon at their best.
  • Their best album for sure! So it's got lengthy and very diverse tracks compared to their other albums, but that's what I like about it - it's an album that does not follow that regular intro-verse-chorus-repeat it formula, but rather it's really all about creating musical journeys, and I sure think that they succeed at that.
  • Every single song here is amazing here. my favorite is Oblivion, Ghost of Karelia and The Last Baron
  • This is my favoritealbum by Mastodon along with Leviathan, impressive!
  • This is the sonical essence of epicness and totally absorbing beauty!
  • Fucking brilliant.
  • In Crack the Skye, they managed to craft a monolithic record. "Masterpiece" may be a clichéd word to describe an album, but this truly deserve that tag. Fantastic!
