Crack the Skye is the fourth studio Atlanta prog-metal band Mastodon. It is both their highest best album to date and held in the highest regard by critics and fans.
Since Mastodon put out several subsequent albums. Crack the Skye (as of this blog post) is now 10 years old. Their follow up follow-up efforts have all been good, but no Crack The Skye.
Was “Crack the Skye” Mastodon’s High-Water Mark Or Can They Top It?
My question to you is: is this their Reign In Blood, or do they have a better one in them?
