Powerful and deeply moving. Their most mature album yet (not that any of their other albums were immature at all). The tones to be found in between the two guitars with headphones on are astounding. A must buy for anyone interested in a deep connection with the collective consciousness.

First I'd like to say that I'm a big fan of Neurosis, but I haven't always been and don't fully enjoy all of their work (mostly the really early stuff). I've seen them live twice and I didn't have any knowledge of the band before seeing them. They were opening for other bands. The last time they came thru my town was when they released 'Through Silver In Blood' back around 1996. I didn't know the music but was absolutely blown away by their stage performance. They're the type of band that can make you feel stoned when your sober. Their music is deep and hypnotic. The general formula for their albums is that they flow from song to song. Light flowing instrumentals and effects flow into crushing guitar solos while the vocals are raw and dark, yet full of atmospheric and image conjuring words and poetry. They seem to make an album as one whole piece - not broken down for radio consumption - and I respect that as it is the more artistic thing to do. Their songs flow from almost overwhelmingly heavy apocalyptic doom filled rage and despair to light airy instrumentals that break up the songs into individual pieces of work.

Now, if your familiar with this band and you've enjoyed the direction they're going then don't hesitate another minute and buy it! It's easily as good or better than past releases in my opinion. They aren't straying far from their recent formula which is good in my opinion yet it is totally different and unique. Nothing on this release feels like it's been done before.

If you aren't familiar with this band, this is my own quick and dirty interpretation but this is how I've come to view the music. They seemed to start out with some very heavy punk roots. I didn't particularly enjoy their first cd's.

HONOR FOUND IN DECAY is another great Neurosis album. It breaks no new ground, but rather consolidates the sound of their "Albini period" which started with TIMES OF GRACE (1999). The theme of the record, hinted at in the superb Josh Graham artwork, is social collapse and a return to a simpler way of life, closer to the Elements. "Civilization" is destroying the Earth -- that is a central dark truth that runs through all of Neurosis's music.

The seven tracks are:

We All Rage In Gold
At the Well
My Heart For Deliverance
Bleeding the Pigs
Casting of the Ages
All Is Found ... In Time
Raise the Dawn

After swerving from the path of all-out intensity to the inward-looking, ambient sounds of A SUN THAT NEVER SETS (2001) and THE EYE OF EVERY STORM (2004), the band returned to the "hypnotic, super-heavy loud music" they are known for on GIVEN TO THE RISING (2007). That record took TIMES OF GRACE (1999) and added a touch of the ambient atmospherics of TEOES. GTTR stands as my favorite Neurosis album. HONOR FOUND IN DECAY doesn't hit as hard as GTTR, nor is it as moody and ambient as TEOES. It's less extreme, but fashions strong new "songs" out of the same raw sonic materials.

Neurosis began as a hardcore punk band in Oakland in 1985. They shared the speed, intensity, and anarchist politics of that movement -- against war, racism, Reagan and Thatcher. SOULS AT ZERO (1992) was the turning point when they slowed the music down and began to develop their innovative, massive, metal sound. (They're usually mentioned as a key influence on "post-metal," but their trajectory was actually from punk to metal, so post-punk.

I have all of the Neurosis albums from pretty much the last 20 years, and this is up there with the best of them. The dynamics and instrumentation changes on this album are literally breathtaking. I got chills. A fantastic album that feels a lot like a crowning achievement.

I have been listening to Neurosis for nearly 20 years now. Each album is a sonic assault. Even the "technically lighter" material is laden with with heavy riffs.
Honor Found in Decay is no exception. Crushingly heavy yet beautiful. Not the typical formula so many metal bands rely on.

Neurosis is a band that people either love or hate. I only know one person other than myself that loves them and that is my brother. They are definitely not for everyone, but that is exactly what makes them so special to their core fans.

A masterpiece of artful ferocity.

P.S. The new autorip feature is excellent. Great job as always Amazon.

I'll be the first to admit I don't like every album Neurosis puts out. Some of their stuff is so experimental I just can't get into it. The last album of theirs I really wore out was A Sun That Never Sets. Not that I didn't enjoy some of their songs since then, but the two albums I bought after that I never really listened to very much. The song "The Eye of Every Storm" was phenomenal, but the album as a whole I couldn't get into. With only 7 songs I was a little apprehensive about buying Honor Found in Decay but those fears were immediately laid to rest. From the very start I could tell this was going to be well worth it. I used to listen to Neurosis for hours at a time when I was younger. Instead of turning on the TV or playing video games, I would crank up the stereo and spin album after album of Neurosis music. It has always been such a trip to really let myself become immersed in their music. This album is the first one since Times of Grace that I could play from start to finish and just let it take me away to a place that no other music has ever taken me. I missed that. Thanks Neurosis. Tour more.
