Rating: 10 I know, Strength of Fates scared the sh*t outta me the first time I heard it. And the second. Haven't gotten around to 3rd spin yet, this is an album you listen to occasionally.

Is this a good place to start with Neurosis? thinking getting into them but I cant decide on an album.


I remember I asked this in their band thread and I got a response which I agree with now that I know most of their discography.

Given To The Rising would be the best choice overall because it contains pretty much everything Neurosis is known for: It has agression, intense moments, calm sections... It's really varied and therefore shows pretty much the whole package. The other albums like Times Of Grace are very intese and on the other hand albums like The Eye Of Every Storm are very calm most of the time
So yeah.... Given To The Rising would be the best start, if Given To The Rising didn't exist, I would say that you could start with Through Silver In Blood as it is also very representative but I would say a little bit less accessible.

Tl;dr answer: Go for Given To The Rising and if you aren't too sure about it when you are done with it... Give it a try with Through Silver In Blood because that album should not be missed under any circustances.
IMO pretty much their entire discography is worth checking out. But TSIB..... damn... Easily top 5 of the 90's for me and pretty much one of the pinnacles of Post-Metal. One of my nine albums I gave the max rating.

Based on your rating with TSIB ill check that first, I don't really have a problem with accessibility so I will try this first, Thanks for the help.

Heh, thanks for the compliment! Tell me what you think about it when you are done.
I'm a *bit* of a fanboy since I really love their discography , at least the albums I own. One of the most consistent bands I know.

That's the thing with Neurosis, Looking around I cant find many people with a bad thing to say about their albums which obviously makes it hard to choose one, I'm trying to get more into Sludge/Post Rock etc. and I kept hearing this bands name pop up so I figured id start with them.

Aye, that happens a lot among the fans, can't really decide on a good album to start not only because of the quality but also because besides from being consistent, they always change a little bit with every album. GTTR and TSIB are the only ones that try to show all the things the band has to offer. I'm quite sure the most popular opinion is that TSIB is their best one but usually by a hair from the rest.

You have made a new fan of Neurosis I think, I like this album a lot after giving it a few spins and I will most definitely be checking out more from this band, so thanks for the recommendation

Glad you liked them! If you enjoyed TSIB I'm sure you'll enjoy pretty much anything from Souls At Zero to present (they were hardcore punk before, still good but yoyu might want to be cautious).

And just for being a fanboy....

After 27 years(!) of kicking around, they are still as intense as ever. What I like about that song is that it works perfectly as both opener and closer. Because both the intro and outro are massive.



Compare it with this old one back in 95. Okay they had a bit more energy but they haven't changed that much

Cool stuff, Ill probably pick up a couple more records soon, and I like Hardcore punk so its all good.

I know what you mean with that song, Its almost like a Neurosis "anthem" and perfect for a live setting.

I agree; I saw them last summer and "Through Silver In Blood" was the final song (thankfully there was no encore; I just find it stupid)... And it simply burned the city to the ground.

Needless to say that this album is their most successful and consistent, easily one of the best of the last 20 years. If I had to choose another Neurosis album I really cherish, that'd be "The Eye Of Every Storm", much calmer yet absolutely dreary...

The last song, "I can see you" is some of the most intense moments of the band for me. There's a piercing desperation hidden in the beginning that grasp you by the throat later.

"In the oceans we can find you
For the sun we praise your name
In the dirt we pray for god to bring you back again... To bring you back again".

  This is such a killing album. I'd put my hands on fire to claim this as one of the heaviest albums ever written.

Rating: 10 After giving this album a tonne of spins I have to say this album is indeed excellent I should have listened to this band earlier.

  I don't think I've ever listened to this album without ramen.

  This album has no faults or flaws.
