WORTH THE WAIT!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Nothing (Audio CD)
After a lengthy absence, Meshuggah return to provide an antidote to the frivolity, banality and mediocrity of nu-metal. 'Nothing' is stunning; excellent production, tight performances from all and a 'less is more' approach from a band noted for performing in odd-time signatures. This album grooves, a must for any fan of metal, either extreme or otherwise. From opening track 'Stengah' through to 'Obsidian' this is clearly work from a band not only technically proficient, but with enough knowledge to master the art of pleasing both music fans and musicians, without losing the ability to please themselves. Recommended track is 'Organic Shadows'. Along with Dillinger Escape Plan, Candiria and Tool, Meshuggah continue to push the envelope with an unending belief in the listeners intelligence.
