Review by Bj-1
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Rare Trax" is an compilation that features rare Meshuggah material from 1989-2000, though it's mostly for hardcore Meshuggah fans. The most interesting about this compilation is that the first Meshuggah EP, "Psykisk Testbild", is featured on it (Tracks 2-4), and also some early "Contradictions Collapse" era demo's (Tracks 7-8).

The other stuff is not that important, but still quite good. The MPEG music video of "New Millennium Cynaid Christ" is excellent, but the tour and studio clips are just a completely hilarious way, though it doesn't make much sense if don't understand Swedish.

Overall: This compilation is for Mesuggah fans who are very familiar with them and not only causual fans. The tracks are good, though sometimes weak. Overall: 3.5 stars.

Review by OpethGuitarist
2 stars More or less a biography of Meshuggah, and some rarely heard tracks that never made it on a studio album. This is not where I would start someone interested in Meshuggah. This is an album that only fans of the band would appreciate, and contains quite little prog in it. A very good listen for those who enjoy the band and want some different material, but it's not anywhere close as a mainstay of progressive music.
