Best Mastodon Albums


The Top Ten

1 Crack the Skye Crack the Skye

Yeah, this album is a masterpiece. Every single song on this album are amazing. It's their best work, followed by Leviathan. The Czar is my favorite song of Mastodon, and one of the best songs I've ever heard in my life!

Their best release to date. Every song is amazing.

6. The Hunter
5. Blood Mountain

2 Leviathan Leviathan

This may be the most difficult top ten list to rate, but when I was introduced to Mastodon a number of years ago I received a number of albums all at once, and this is the one that hooked me.

All of these top three albums are tied for number one for me.

From beautiful artwork to the brilliantly thought out concept theme, this album is a journey. It's more like reading a collection of short stories about the sea (it's actually somewhat based on Moby Dick).

What a heavy album! Deserves the first spot!

4 Once More 'Round the Sun Once More 'Round the Sun

Man all of mastodons Albums are epic this ones a little different more Bran dailor less Brent hinds not sure if this is better or worse anyways this is a great album 4/5

This album is a little different the last 2 mastodon albums feature more of bran dailor on vocals he has a more radio friendly voice different but definitely epic!

Great album! A little bit more mainstream but also classic mastodon all of there studio albums are critically acclaimed so its very hard to pick one but come on people vote this one up should be in the top 3

Definitely one of the best of their releases. comes close to crack the skye, but lacks of concept a bit - all the songs have their magic moments. you could say mastodon evolved from a metal band into a rock band into a prog band into a stoner band and now their doing all of that at once, which makes this album just so good.

5 The Hunter The Hunter

Can't choose so I'll vote for this in the hopes it gets the more casual listener into mastodon - BronzeWolf96

This is their best no doubt about it!

6 Remission Remission

My favourite is actually Leviathan but Remission definitely shouldn't be one of the lowest!

Really surprised that this is presently the lowest ranked studio album. If you're an old school thrasher or a real metalhead then this and Leviathan will probably be at the top for you. But hey, they're all great albums.

Awesome album best songs crusher destroyer, ole nessie, elephant man, mother puncher, and the burning man. - horrorfan89
