No, it's fucking not. When comparing things, all that matters is the level of abstraction. I can go ahead and say: "Both Portal and Meshuggah play metal, both use guitars...etc." Both would be comparing them. Both, though rather pointless, would not be stupid things to say. What's fucking stupid is you getting your pants in a twist over people saying both bands are similar in the way that their music isn't for everyone. Whether you agree with this notion or not is another thing, but making comparisons like that is far from being stupid per se.

I doubt you're in the minority. Even if it did rule just a tad less than previous Meshuggah offerings

I didn't get my pants in a twist about anything, just lulz at people comparing bands that are very dissimilar, sure both use guitars and have riffs, but if that's the extent of it, then logically, you are a dumbass.

QFT. I'm a bit late but I just have to say that I totally agree with the point you're making.

I find that a lot of people have problems with abstract comparison, not just in musical circles.

I also find, generally speaking, that the same people can't grasp the difference between inspiration and mimicry.

Yeppers.

Could you elaborate on your last statement? An example for both inspiration and mimicry in dealing with bands would be ace.
