Except in that genre, people that don't get it usually find it boring. Most people can't get into Meshugga because the music is too boring to them. But if you know anything about music theory, you probably love Meshugga.
I get it..I listen to a lot of bands in that genre, in fact its one of my favorite genres i.e. prog metal. I just think these songs are very underwhelming and don't really stand out at all. I get all the crazy 8-string guitar work going on and I understand the thought and complexity behind it, but none of these songs really grabbed me. Also i would say I appreciate meshuggah more than I love them. They too bore me a bit even if they do have one of the best modern metal drummers playing crazy polyrythms..I just find bands like Textures, Cynic, East of the wall, TesseracT, Uneven structures etc. to do the whole complex music thing and still sound interesting and enjoyable.
