5.0 out of 5 stars My first Neurosis CD, absolutely awesome January 25, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was 14 when I first purchased this CD last summer. At first, I was dissapointed with it and didn't really understand it. Every now and then I'd throw it back into my CD player and it wouldn't really impress me. But now I'm 15 and it's about 8 months later. I was awake in bed real late one night and I just starting humming all the Neurosis themes that I'd disregarded over the past few months. I put it back in and it all hit me like a thousand bricks. It blew me away. It actually took me over half a year to mature and grow into their savage sound. 7 full songs and 4 seague songs make this 66 minute masterpeice. Neurosis is just so innovative. I've never heard anything remotely close to this. They write (on this CD) about 6-10 minute songs, full of aggresion and power. Guitar chords I've never heard before, bagpipes that wrench your heart, samples that create atmosphere, and profound lyric writing are just a few of the great things about this album. And not to mention the diverse "intermission songs". Great musicianship on those. I swear I'm gonna have "Road to Sovereignity" played at my funeral. Well, it's been 2 weeks since my discovery and I already have "Grace" coming in the mail and I ordered a phat black Neurosis sweatshirt off their site, and I probably listen to it 3 times a day. Lemme tell you it's not for everyone. But for those who can appreciate this CD, it's truly a wonderfull experience that I highly recommend you take part in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, epic, and heavy July 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Neurosis' "Times Of Grace" is an experience in itself. On this album, the band produces epic ambient-style metal that pummels the listener into submisison. The combined effect of the manic distortion and somewhat linear arrangements seems, at first, incoherent and unsatisfying. But upon further listens, "Times Of Grace" opens itself up and shows the world what it truly is - an epic masterpiece.
The first thing the listener is exposed to upon listening to this album is are the tension-building notes of Scott Kelly's guitar blended in with bagpipes in "Suspended In Light." Next up is "The Doorway," with its heavy distortion and awesome time changes. "The Last You'll Know" features an incredible midsection, complete with a harmonica-like synthesizer before calming into dissonance, which then builds to a sludgy rage.
"Belief" chooses to, instead of being completely heavy and distorted throughout, go back-and-forth between heaviness and subdued somberness. "Exist" is the perfect instrumental for an album of this nature - beautiful, mysterious, and calm, which accentuates the rest of the album greatly. It also flows directly into the wonderful "End Of The Harvest," which showcases a wonderful buildup to the climax. "Descent" begins with just a bass drum, then adds guitar, bagpipes, bass, and synthesizer (at serparate times) creating a great buildup before fading out. "Away" actually features clean vocals (!) and a beautiful buildup before steppin' on the distortion and switching to the usual screaming. It is also a top highlight of the album. The album's title track begins with a few simple notes before becoming UNGODLY heavy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a vest January 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The metal world is, regrettably, almost as full of copycats and one-trick ponies as the mainstream, but Neurosis are one band that have legitimately earned the label of innovators. "Times of Grace" is easily one of the most primal and visceral albums ever recorded, but that's far from the whole story, as it's also among the most creative and intelligent metal albums of recent years. Not afraid to push their songs into the vicinity of the ten-minute mark, Neurosis compose epics of mountainous proportions, replete with punishing dynamics and stunning musicianship. Listening to "Times of Grace" is a daunting proposition, as it's not "radio-ready" to the say the least. However, this album is a grower of the highest order, as its brilliance is steadily revealed with repeated listens.
While there are plenty of metal bands out there that make lots of noise, few if any can shape it in as discordant and unsettling a manner as Neurosis. This isn't speed metal, or grindcore, or some other style that just seeks to beat the listener into the ground (not that there's anything wrong with that!). The heaviest tracks, such as "The Doorway," "End of the Harvest," and the title track, don't burst forth from speakers so much as they ooze forth, enveloping the listener in a primordial haze with some serious mind-warping potential. In a refreshing change of pace from traditional metal sounds, the guitars are as much about atmosphere and complexity as brutality, creating unpredictable layers of tightly coiled, distorted riffage. Jason Roeder's tribal-influenced drumming is among the heaviest and most ominous in history, and you can feel the disaffection in every note of the hardcore-style screams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Driven January 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album has more direct drive then any of thier albums before it. The Industrial tribal-metal dirge approach has nearly gone and left behind not the battle, but now a map of the battle(an overview if you will), giving Neurosis a displacing edge from what early fans like myself came to know. Times of Grace is a more straight forward plunge then thier previous "Through Silver in Blood". Through Silver in Blood being an album which takes the skin and bone of your head and rips it back and thats if you can make it through the shear intensity(Through Silver in Blood is still my favorite album by them).
"Times of Grace" is much less punishing then previous albums and emphasizes on a new look at things for Neurosis. Bag-pipes find thier way to Neurosis as a more forefront then before and lend an amazingly touching effect. "Soveriegn" which came after "Times of Grace" began an even deeper plunge into what Neurosis became during "A Sun that Never Sets" that is... much more crystal and elegant... patient. Neurosis are a band that never loses themselves for the fact that they reinvent themselves and grow. Listening to Neurosis is like witnessing evolution in time lapse. Prepare to have your mind opened.
If you are new to Neurosis do not start here. I'd suggest starting with "Enemy of the Sun" or "Souls At Zero" so you may have a clue as to what the middle ground battlefield was(so far) for Neurosis and from being warriors to war heroes...
