iTunes Review

Since coming together in Atlanta circa 2000, Mastodon have become one of the heaviest (and most popular) metal bands working today, staying busy both in the studio and on the road. Fusing elements of doom metal and progressive rock, to date they've released five studio albums, including Leviathan, Blood Mountain, and Crack the Sky. Many of their lyrics center around complex fantasy concepts (the hunt for Moby Dick, a paraplegic with superpowers, etc.), while their undeniable musical chops, unpredictable change-ups, and thunderous live shows have made them a hit on the festival circuit. Live at Brixton was recorded at a London show in February 2012; it finds them serving up nearly 100 minutes of high-intensity mayhem culled from their entire discography. Devastatingly heavy while surprisingly catchy, this is essential listening whether you're a Mastodon neophyte or longtime follower.

Customer Reviews

It's good but it's missing something.

Instrumentally, Mastodon is always spot on with live performances. However, they seem to crank the volume for their instruments up to 11 whereas the volume for their mics seems to be down somewhere around 6 or 7. You can BARELY hear the vocals on any of the songs, which kind of eats because their vocals are usually good. It's almost as if they're afraid their own voices outside the studio.

Good live album, but I just wish they'd stop drowning themselves out.

It's live people!

The vocals sound fine to me, I'm sure they had the final say in the mix and how loud the vocals were, plus these guys ain't Beyoncé. Sounds like a killer Mastodon show to me, if you want pitch perfect vocals, listen to the studio albums. What I really dig is the nice separation between the two guitars and the fact that these are live versions of killer songs, so they are a bit "livelier" than the album counterparts. Mastodon on fire here!

Night and Day

Hearing their produced albums and hearing them live is like listening two different bands. I've loved this band since Remission. I've seen them live a few times. Their new sound just doesn't work with their vocals. This album has moments of clarity where they sound pretty decent. But, a few does not make up for the fact that it hurts my ears. I hope they figure out how to use their voices because I'm slowly turning away from them.
