Live at the Aragon is a vivid documentation of Mastodon’s show. The audio recording is impeccable; each instrument is clear without being overpowering in the mix. Listening at home on a full stereo, I could feel the bass drum hits as much as I could hear them. The guitar tone is exactly the same as on the album: crunchy and deep from the rhythm (Kelliher), slick and clear from the lead (Hinds). I saw a show earlier on the tour, and this setup definitely separated the long-time fans from the new ones - only the hardcore fans were still shouting along to "March of the Fire Ants". Here, however, there is no "Colony of Birchmen" or "Blood and Thunder".
