Re: most of this list and the entire djent genre...

If I wanted to listen to music made by machines, I'd buy a player piano.

Oh, and Heliocentric is way better than Anthropocentric because The Ocean is better when the heaviness only ekes into the sound at times than when heaviness is the entire name of the game. Take the clean vocals, sax, and cello out of Heliocentric and beef up the riffs with more distortion and I wouldn't even listen to it twice.

What's this? Everyone just started using this in everyday conversation, like, a month ago...including journalists, bloggers, and my polisci professor. What does it mean? "About the following thing:"?

You should see (hear) Meshuggah play live. That would shut you right the fuck up.

The people ARE machines, bro - that's how fucking good those dudes are.

(As for the rest of the genre, I could care less about most of it - and the existence of the genre itself is a bit dubious to me as well.)

There are a lot more clean vocals and ambient parts in Anthropocentric than you're giving it credit for. I know that in interviews, Robin Staps had told the press that Anthro was to be a much heavier album, but if you really listen, it isn't. There are more heavy parts, yes, but they aren't that much heavier - and The Ocean certainly didn't forget about the clean vocals and the sexy parts on their second album this year. I really think the above statement is a bit of a snap judgment on your part. Not judgin', just sayin'.

This. The reason I referenced She was the Universe is because I love how the clean vocals set up the heavy vocals. I'm all for ambient songs/pieces that set up heavy songs like Tool. That being said the last song on Anthro I don't get at all. That song makes Coldplay look like Slayer...

Fair enough. I can't argue that.

Interestingly enough, it kinda disproves Brad's point that Anthro is all harshness and no beauty, though, doesn't it?

The pretty parts and heavy parts are both worse on Anthropocentric, in my opinion. Also, there are some parts on Anthro that downright annoyed me. Can't say that about anything on Helio. Furthermore, The Origin of Species/The Origin of God elevates Helio to top 10 status in the first place, and there's nothing as revelatory as that sequence anyplace on Anthro.
