It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Good links - I always like those uTube videos which show the score

I'm guessing that what may be bothering jdaniel (in terms of the rhythm) is the fact that the score calls for the triplet going into measure 12 to be played hurriedly ("flüchtig"). In the piano roll performance, Mahler also rushes the triplet going into measure 7 (as do many conductors). This certainly upsets the listener's expectations at these points and adds a sense of unease, if you will, to the rhythm. To me, the flüchtig indication is counter-intuitive, and, without it, I'd be inclined to do the opposite (i.e., hold it back!). But you can't argue with the score! ;-)
