AllMusic Review by

When the two original members of Mountain, guitarist Leslie West and drummer Corky Laing, along with Richie Scarlet on bass, decided to release their first new record since 2002's Mystic Fire to mark their 35th anniversary as a band, thankfully they didn't simply re-record their own classics like "Mississippi Queen" or "Theme for an Imaginary Western." Instead, they pay tribute to Bob Dylan by covering 12 songs from his monumental catalog. While the overall concept is a bit stronger than the execution, guest guitarist Warren Haynes' appearance on "Serve Somebody" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'," and Ozzy Osbourne's anguished reading of "Master's of War" are highlights of Masters of War.
