4 stars A return to form for the Godfathers of Post-Metal. I'm not going to go into too much detail here, but Neurosis move on from 2004's disappointing 'The Eye of Every Storm'. The guitar is heavy, the bass is pounding, the drums are crushing, and the vocals range from clean to tortured. Neurosis' career can be summed up here, the album contains every style they've ever done. Their post-hardcore roots and pounding heaviness are present, yet so is their drone style, however, with increasing influence from the post-rock genre. It all comes together rather nicely for the most part, but on some parts you just wish to be over. For the rest of the album, however, Neurosis do what they do one word: heavy. Recommended for fans of all post-metal and sludge music, or anyone who's willing to dive into something that's jaw droppingly intense.
