Upcoming Bullsh*t



mastodon holiday shippingSo I’m reading all about the “Royal Edition” of Mastodon’s Crack the Skye that’s coming out just in time for the holidays, and the above graphic from their website took me by surprise. Shipping deadlines not just for Christmas, but for Hanukkah! How considerate of those fine, southern gentlemen. I guess they want our Jew money, too.

About that Royal Edition, it’s pretty much just a repackaging of Crack the Skye with gold foil artwork and a “full-length Crack the Skye score.” I can’t find a description anywhere of what the hell that score actually is, but I’m guessing it’s the visual accompaniment the band’s been projecting on a screen behind them during their live shows. While I love Mastodon and I love Crack the Skye, I can’t see myself laying down $40 for an album I already have… and neither should you, considering there’s another awesome release coming out that same day that’s only going to cost $5!
