I'm bummed there wasn't more than one new track, but the live recording is amazing qualitywise so it's hard to be disappointed. Song is solid as hell.

That was painfully boring. Literally nothing happened for 5 minutes. Just chug chug chug, spoken words, chug chug chug.

Absurdly boring song. Lots of chugging, speaking, and the same shitty 'bass line?' for the entire song.

I really like the first half with the spoken vox over the rhythms but the second half was pretty boring except like the last 30 seconds

I didn't feel enough push as a whole except for the first half moments. It just needs something more.

It's not a problem, it's just a weird notion. They had this sitting around for ten years before they got any use out of it. I can't imagine writing a piece of music and then sitting on it for a decade. It'd probably drive me nuts.

Nobody's mentioned the fact that there's a live version of Dancers To A Discordant System accompanying this release, which has got to be the most insane track they've ever written.

Another amazing Meshuggah song! Considering it was written about a decade ago, with the new modern production, this song still sounds fresh. Structurally, this song emphasizes more the progressive nature that Meshuggah has previously explored within their music. Although I was hoping for a new EP, maybe along the lines of "I", this new song will still due.

Dancers sounds amazing live as well. I remember them saying in some interview that they couldn't play this song live. My only gripe is they didn't play the clean lead guitar part just before and after the solo. That guitar part layers a 5/4 melody over the 4/4 drum beat and crazy poly-metric rhythm guitar parts. Its one of the few sections that layers 3 separate rhythmic meters over one another. As my favorite moment in any Meshuggah song, I was really hoping that Thordendal would have played this part, but opted to just double the rhythm part instead.

Fuck yes! Great tune, really loving the open sound on Haakes kit, along with the sweet FBM-style middle part. Fantastic

I just listened to this EP, then I, then Pitch Black again, and on second listen I did enjoy it more. I think it would work better if it was included on Nothing, just listening to one track doesn't feel right.

When I listen to Meshuggah I need to listen for more than 5 minutes.

I love I to death and Obzen, Catch 33 and Nothing are all amazing as well. I just can't stand it when hype is brought upon a release that feels like we're fed scraps. It was free and that's cool, but Scion has done much better with most of their other releases.
