I was looking for something faster and more aggresive from Meshuggah after Nothing (although I did like Nothing) and "I" was just what I was looking for. The production is about as good as you can get. The song takes you through the years of Meshuggah covering each album. A great CD for the time between Nothing and Catch 33.

PS - CATCH 33 IS SET FOR RELEASE IN EUROPE ON APRIL 11, 2005!

"I" is a unique effort from Meshuggah. It puts their math metal style into a new format and sets out to create entirely new textures that differ significantly from Chaosphere, Nothing, and other albums. The 8-string guitars have a strangely haunting tone. The pace is faster that most of Meshuggah's songs. Around 6:20, the song gets heavier that just about anything I've EVER heard. Note the drum pattern: 4 snare hits for every 3 cymbal hits, plus double bass patterns to boot... the intensity is difficult to convey. Later on, Meshuggah engages in a bit more tension and release than is typical for them. Finally, around 18:00, things get slow and sludgy. All of this is a lot to digest for a single song, but it's hard to imaging splitting into different songs.

"I" is an excercise in rhythm. It sounds disjointed and jarring, with dissonant melodies mostly creeping around in the sonic shadows, and big crunches mostly taking center stage. Vocals are arguably the best yet for Meshuggah.

In summation: this is a great one for fans of Meshuggah. For those who have not heard them yet, start with Chaosphere or Destroy Erase Improve, as "I" will be very hard to digest at first.

This "song" is something unnatural! It has it all. It goes thru the meshuggas past repertuar and gives something new. Almost scary how good they are! THE "I" ROCKS MORE THEN ANYTHING EVER BEFORE!! Only "The dillinger escape plan" gets near them on technique and rocking!!
