Wiz and Willie have convinced me to try this band with their fanatacism...where to start?

Well, I think telling people where to start is like telling you what to do.

Souls at Zero, Enemy of the Sun: Alot more transistions and less reliance on calm/ loud parts.

Through Silver and Blood, Given to the Rising: Heavy as fuck! Tidal wave riff after tidal wave riff, complimented by some eerie calm parts.

Times of Grace, A Sun that Never Sets: Alot of experimental moments and still heavy as fuck. Alot of pyschedelic moments as well.

The Eye of Every Storm: Their most ethereal album. Very calm with some awesome crescendos.

I hope that helps. These descriptions barely do justice for these albums. I'm only suggesting the general sound of each.

I do agree with WarAllTheTime988 ; )!

Given to the Rising was the easiest to get into for me. Lead me into the other albums.

I think you'll like this, but don't expect something similar to newer albums. Love the new Avatar... I voted for that guy, he's my governator now.

You need to hear these guys Meatplow. One of the most unique metal bands you will ever hear.

It might just be that I got into Neurosis with Times of Grace, but I really don't find this album especially to be up to par with what most people seem to think it is...I dunno.

I'm planning on listening to the whole sludge/ ambient section of Neurosis's catalog this week, almost an album a day, maybe then I'll figure it out.

Just to me it seems as if the length of the songs are the main factor for me. I realize that songs on Times of Grace are mostly 7-9 minutes, but there's so much raw power and emotion whereas with this it seems kinda empty.

This is little more straight to the point and depending on how you like your music, this will appeal to either side (or both like myself). But I agree, I'm more of a fan of post-Times of Grace era.

Well after listening to this album 5 times through today, I think it's now an excellent album. Still nowhere near Times of Grace and afterward, but it definitely crosses my threshold. I love the audio clip sampling in this album as compared to Enemy of the Sun, save for Burning Flesh in Year of Pig. Not as heavy as I'd like it to be, and the songs are still a bit too long for the content they contain (in my opinion), but excellent stuff. Love the catchy, repetitive riffs in most of the songs.

Hey, at least you gave this album a fair chance and still came out a winner. There are alot of dumbasses around here who will write an album off after one listen.

Well I'm a fan of music. Anything that doesn't turn me off instantly will usually grow on me, given enough chances.

Mainly though, I like music that penetrates the psyche, digs into raw emotion that plain words cannot reach, and then makes you think about things (mainly philosophical or something of the nature), or stuff that straight up rocks. This, and everything after Pain of Mind, is obviously of the first group.
