The intensity of this soundworld is breathtaking. The 'singing' sounds like a nightmare. In Holywood you might expect a city-slaying demon to utter sounds like this. But that's got a lot to do with conditioning. Let's appreciate this on its own terms. This conjures an emotional state that is a kind of hormonal exhilaration. One recalls leaping off a stage and surfing the crowd. But there is so much structure and intelligence underpinning this music that it it can be appreciated as a thing of unworldly beauty. It doesn't exactly feel heavenly, or inspire one to admire the heavenly glory...but it does come close. Yes, I feel rather positive as a I listen.

After sampling the delights this monster album has to offer I can safely conclude that Meshuggah really have it narrowed down to a fine art. Their songs are packed with a pure emotion and raw brutality rarely found in modern metal bands. I am most pleased with this album and I thoroughly reccomend any fan of all things heavy to purchase it and witness the divine excellence for yourself.

I got this album off Amazon without ever hearing anything by the band. What i found was one of the most incredible metal albums i have ever heard. I didnt like them because they are relentlessly heavy, of hyped up to death by Jack Osbourne, i liked them because they literally are a breath of fresh air into metal music. I saw them at Download 05 and they sound just as insane as they do on record. Fav track "Exquisite Machinery" as it is just rips apart the album with evil, whispery vocals before exploding into a chorus that you want to scream your lungs of to. Really really good stuff. Heavy, thoughtful, difficult, rewarding.

This album isn't as tuneful as the others. Although the polyrhythms seem to get ever more complex, there are no loud/soft contrasts which is why it loses points for me. I wasn't too impressed with the 10 or so minutes of white noise at the end of 'Elastic' either. Despite that, this is still a damn good album and puts many a more popular band (eg. Korn & Coal Chamber) to shame.

Theres nothing bad to say about Meshuggah metal at its best with 2 amazing guitarists there sound is unique. Best tracks (Although there all great so its hard to say)Sane, Corridor of Chameleons and Mouth Licking What You've Bled. This album is great buy it and get other Meshuggah records i.e Nothing and Contradictions Collapse.
