4 stars To start, I love Meshuggah. They have been a very important part of my musical experience for about two years, and have not even started to grow old. This re-release of Nothing is far less organic than the original. The biggest reason that any fan should buy this album is for clarity. The patterns are far easier to understand. The vocals and the drums both sound more distant. The drums are definately quieter. I believe that the one thing this album is lacking is musicianship of Tomas Haake, being the band used a drum machine.

The first thing I thought when i heard the album is "I wonder what spasm sounds like?" It was fantastic. The guitars are heavy and I could easily tell what notes they were playing. That meant a lot to me. The production quality is amazing. The only problem I could see someone having is with the lack of organic sound. The whole album is like an opressive machine of vast complexity. If you liked Catch 33 (note that I did not), you are sure to love the 2006 version of Nothing. Very musical, I cannot wait for the next album. It's sure to be amazing.
