"Catch Thirtythree" is one long continuous heavy track satisfying those in need of a serious Meshuggah fix. Not to mention it's some of the most insane stuff I've heard this band come up with so far. For the most part, things are slowed down, sometimes heavy as hell, sometimes very mellow, they even get all atmospheric in there. Vocals are sparse, and sometimes things get strange...like the intro to "Mind's Mirror", one of the 13 sections which range from a minute and four seconds, to over 13 minutes long. It'll be interesting to see what Meshuggah evolves into next.
