4 stars This is in all actuality the real "Nothing" It was Meshuggah's intent to make this album with 8 string guitars, but the lack of time and guitars forced them to just downtune the 7's. This is a fantastic album, embodying(sp) everything meshuggah is, the album has a far more organic sound, while still retaining Meshuggah's machine-like reputation. The songs are all amazing however for sake of time, and my knowledge of music I will put up the true winners of this album.

Strength- Stengah on the original This song is full of thundering funk riffs and multiple time signatures, Haake stands out (although I have heard he used the Drumkit from Hell for this nonethematter his parts were played by him in the original) The solos also are fantastic, you can really hear the Allen Holdsworth influence

Rational Gaze- Taking a break from the odd time signatures they move into more complex 4/4 this is a very powerful song, especially at about 3:50

Glints Colide- Once again Haake shows off his godliness he keeps up his speed with some amazing tom work in odd time.

Spasm- Almost everyone's favorite song off of this album Thomas keeps up his very complex beat while reciting his poetry, another interesting thing about this song is that it is in Iambic Pentameter.

Once again this a fantastic album 4/5 stars because it is a remake so they did have template to go off of, however anyone with an open mind should really buy this album.

Lex C | 4/5 |
