5 stars This was one of the first Meshuggah albums i listened to, and it still stays as my favourite, along with "Nothing". This could be seen as a 47-minute long suite, and i do recommend you to listen to the whole before making an opinion. If you only listen to the first three songs, you will probably dislike this album. That's because the second half (after Minds Mirrors) is so much better.

It certainly took me time to get into this band. First it took time to understand the complex riffs and drumming, then it took time to appreciate them. Now, i love them. The most notable thing here is Haake's insane but precise and perfect drumming, which was done with a drum-machine, but i don't hear any diffrence.

The "bad" things about this album is the second half of "In Death - Is Death", which is ambient guitar noodling. Sure, it does cool your ears for a while, but "Mind's Mirrors" is enough "cooling" for me. Anyway, the other bad thing is the repetetiveness. Some riffs have similar sound, and the first three songs even has the same riff going.

If you like the earlier, fast period of Meshuggah, you will probably dislike this album, so don't bother with it. But if you (like me) like the Slower, Darker and more challenging side of them, you will like this, or maybe even love this. Still, it takes alot of time to get this complex and dark piece.

I think it's a masterpiece, and i stand by my opinion! 5/5
