5 stars 1. I (10/10)

Considering this is an EP, I am going to be rating this entire thing on the one song presented here, and that is I...I is a TRIP. The entire song represents everything you look for in Meshuggah, challenging grooves, and crushing style. The song reaches points of dissonance and heaviness that other metal bands can only hope to achieve, or even conceive. The song throws you around in a room full of spikes, so to speak, sometimes letting you rest, and sometimes throwing bricks at your stomach. If this sounds violent to you, you probably won't even be reading this, but if you're into this, it's delicious. The grooves are catchy yet, you won't be able to remember them probably considering the time and rhythms played in this song seemed to be created off of a string of Einstein equations. It's something you have to hear to believe, but I truly believe that I as a song to sit down and listen to is as much as you can get out of an entire Meshuggah album when they're at their best. Finally we have some non-dated and non-corny groundbreaking metal in the prog genre.

Reviewer's tilt: 10/10

Overall score: 10 out of 10 or 5 stars
