If some of you are so musically versed that you can hear exactly what's going on in any given Meshuggah song without even trying, then that would still count as a "no". I'm just wondering about the level of conscious effort most people put in.
I always have an urge to do that with songs that have more of a steady repetition, like Break Those Bones for instance. If you break down the large riff into coherent sub-groupings, it's fun to hear how the groupings play out over time and within the context of the 4/4 meter.
