4 stars I have always felt that this is a very strong album, possibly their strongest. Meshuggah has done something that is very hard to do and that is to create a very original style of music and keep it evolving and actually good, better yet, amazing.

This is a re-realease of Nothing, they have re-recorded the guitars and they sound great, very clear, the rythms are much more precise sounding. All in all I find this album flawless. They have almost completely abandoned their thrash vibe to create a machine like sound in which the band functions more like an enormous tank rolling over entire cities destroying everything in it's path with flawless execution.

For beginning listeners it would probably be better to start with Destroy Erase Improve, and then Chaosphere and work your way through Nothing and then on to Catch 33.

so close to a masterpiece but I feel Meshuggah's masterwork is yet to come. 4.499999999 stars
