Musically the album continues to expand on the technical death metal style that began with Human, incorporating elements usually associated with jazz.[citation needed] Schuldiner's lyrics explore human facets including critiques of social norms, constructs and perceptions. This album contains the track "The Philosopher", for which a music video was made that received airplay on MTV

and was even featured on, and comically panned by, Beavis & Butthead, where the duo mistake the boy in the video for Jeremy from the Pearl Jam

video and mock Schuldiner's vocals. According to Metal-Rules.com, the album is the 100th greatest heavy metal album of all time,[6] as well as the 11th greatest extreme metal album of all time.[7] The album is included in Guitar Player Magazine's Metal Guitar albums Top 20.
