Prog Reviewer
4 stars Progressive metal would not be the same since the appearance of this album. Definitely not for all tastes, Meshuggah constructed a devastating, hardly digestible, mathematic, almost cacophonic piece of brainy brutality. With skilful atmospheres of heavy minimalism and virtuous haphazard rhythms they vision an acid, machine-based, world. The scarce human presence is found only on the jazzy guitar soiling or some minor Scandinavian acoustic parts of Frederik Thordendal, saving this portrayed world of a complete melodic blankness.

Their merit was on transforming brutality on a work of consummate avant-garde sophistication.
