    I'm with you on that Doden's, I know theyre not the craziest band to comprehend or anything. I simply listen to them cause the music pleases me, it makes me feel like im losing my mind or something.

    I think that's exactly their strongpoint. They're minimalist tech-metal, to coin a ridiculous term. The whole sound is based around white-noise sterility, but if you listen too deeply the parts won't seem to add up the whole.

    The timing is exactly what would get me lost. I guess if you could ignore the other instruments, it would be pretty easy, but then they would have to follow you. I just can't imagine playing it with the other instruments, perfectly locked together.

    Now, meshuggah mediocre is a lie. Even if they are easy to play, and I am just overawed because I am a noob at guitar, they still are an endlessly creative band. Notice how people are using the word meshuggahish to describe some bands riffs? Notice how they sound completly different from any band out there?

    Notice anyone caring? Didn't think so, so shut up. Also, Meshuggahish is the ugliest word I think I've ever seen.

    I never liked Meshuggah, they always seemed really dull.

    Meshuggah is great. They may not be the most technical or accomplished band out there, but they've got a strong dystopian mechanical theme that appeal to sci-fi buffs like me, and I mean their sound, not their lyrics.

    i'm probably not going now.

    i had to go and blow money on ammo for a camping trip next weekend and a steering wheel for my ps2.

    that's $200 that i could have probably spent better (i probably have to buy more ammo tomorrow too).

    who knows though, maybe i'll try to get a ticket the day before if i get bored at work.

    i just hate going to shows when i have to be at work early the next day.

    Not to say you're wrong necessarily, but please explain specifically what their "jazz influences" and elements in their writing are. Things like "jazz" and "classical" "influences" get thrown around waaaaaaay to frequently without really meaning anything besides WHOAMG THEY HAVE JAZZ INFLUENCES THEY MUST BE GOOD. Very few metal bands have large, definite jazz or classical influences.
