Sound: This is one of the defining albums in metal. Meshuggah has been known for being tight as a group, and it is best shown on this release. The guitars play everything from mathmatical rhythms (ex. "Future Breed Machine" and "Transfiction", to shimmering arpegiated chords with a nice solo "Acrid Placidity"). Drums are very technical as well, and Tomas Haake never missed a beat. Everything seems to fit togeather very well. // 10

Lyrics: The lyrics on this album seem to have to do with the downfall of society in general. Singer Jens Kidman has a very powerful scream. Also, the rhythm of the lyrics are never off, and always fit where the song is going. // 10

Overall Impression: For someone who is a huge Metal fan, purchasing this cd would be a great value. Also, it is a good way for those who havent heard Meshuggah to get and idea of what they are about. Every one of these songs is different and complex, my favorites being "Soul Burn," "The Mouth Licking What You've Bled" and "Acrid Placidity". This is overall an excellent album. // 10
