4 stars A bit minimalistic technical jazz and math metal with electronic avant-garde. Very scary. A bit like Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects, but more jazz oriented, and with slower atmospheric feeling here and there. Much clearer than Meshuggah, and this is instrumental. Very harmonic after all, almost concept album, and contrasts are good, suits for post-rock, jazz rock and math metal fans. This isn't just math post-metal (well it isn't post-metal maybe after all) like others, this has symphonic avant-prog soul (reminds me of eg NeBeLNeST, but this is maybe more harmonic and determinative). Meshuggreich is an interesting song title, but Meshuggahlike it isn't, it's more like bright sounded math fusion. There's nice textures in this album and pattern prog would be also suitable nickname.

Often I get tired listening instrumental music, but not this.
