Meshuggah Ranked

This list is going to be unpopular...but oh, well.
Catch Thirtythree

Now, I know for a lot of reasons people consider this to be one of the weaker tracks on the album but I will
never understand that. It takes patience to listen to, yes, but all classics take a lot of investment to be
fully appreciated. This album takes it's time crawling under your skin by holding onto repeating riffs for a
longer duration of time than they usually do, as well as its use of silent sections (Minds Mirrors/In Death is
Death). But I feel that this is Meshuggah at their most lyrically intelligent. It also has the scariest
atmosphere that I have ever heard on any album. I love this album so much that I'm actually finding it
difficult to explain it's awesomeness: I am finished ranting.....now.

Their newest album and in my opinion, the greatest summary of their entire career. The opener is as
groovy as anything off Nothing. Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion is a very atmospheric
slow builder like Catch 33. The Hurt That Finds You and Marrow sound like Chaosphere and DEI days, etc.
etc. This album has everything.


This has my favorite individual songs by Meshuggah: Pravus, Bleed, and Dancers to a Discordant System.
It can be a bit rough to listen to the album as a whole on multiple listens, but that is just because it is so
goddamn intense.

Insanity in an album. Even though this is number 5 out of 7, I still love this more than most. It's
Destroy Erase Improve

Everyone seems to think that this is among their best releases except me. Maybe I'm bias because I
prefer progressive/experimental music to thrash/industrial or whatever this is considered to be. This is still
a very good album, but for Meshuggah standards its sort of lacking a distinct voice that they find in their
next album.
Contradictions Collapse

Cool stuff. Unfortunately, this is the most forgettable out of their entire discography. Too much Metallica
in this album.
