    “Seemingly dozens of subtly different metal subgenres into a singular pursuit…One burly, beastly adrenaline spike.” -- Entertainment Weekly (A-)

    “Loads of monster riffs and frenzied solos, the album also makes room for moments of surprising gentleness…a sound unlike anything in Mastodon’s catalog” – Rolling Stone

    "Why can't all bands be this good? Kerrang! KKKKK

    "The Worlds most interesting band have hit it out of the park again" - Classic Rock 8/10

    "Infectiously brilliant heavy fucking metal" - Terrorizer 5/5

    "Still firmly in a class of their own, Mastodon have done it again "- Metal Hammer 9/10
