Neurosis and ISIS always switch to be my favourites, but Neurosis usually win nowadays simply because they're, well, Neurosis (ISIS come close, but Neurosis juuuuuust take the cake).

I've checked out Latitudes, just haven't really given them a proper go. There are so many Post-Metal bands that are great, that was just a ranking of my favourites for the genre.

Some of you might not even consider Russian Circles to be Post-Metal, but I think they're too heavy to be Post-Rock.

it happens. they have a new 1, pretty great.

I love ISIS' two best (Oceanic and Panopticon) slightly more than Neurosis' two best (TSIB and GttR) but the breadth of Neurosis' amazing work can't be messed w/

Neurosis' best are Given to the Rising and The Eye of Every Storm. And The Eye of Every Storm > Every other album ever conceived.

i used to think TEoES was their best as well but then TSIB grew on me so much.

Times of Grace and Enemy Of The Sun are so awsome too.

All their albums are awesome, but I just don't think TEoES is beatable. I mean, it has the title track TEoES (arguably the best song ever written) and the best closer for any album ever; I Can See You.

I'm a hopeless Neurosis fanboy.

Screw it, I'm having another Neurosis session that will probably last another few weeks. Gonna go listen to Souls At Zero now. That wailing chorus in To Crawl Under One's Skin is fucking amazing.

I started off with Enemy of the Sun. Killer album, but back when I first heard it, I was like, "What the fuck is this shit?"

A Sun That Never Sets is the only Neurosis album I haven't listened to extensively, actually.

I've listened to A Sun That Never Sets like 4 or 5 times all up, compared to their other albums which I've listened to countless times. I'll give it another go tonight, it just never clicked like the rest of their discog did. I still love the album, just to a lesser extent.

TEoES (5) > GttR (5) > TSIB (5) > SaZ (4.5) > ToG (4.5) > EotS (4.5) > ASTNS (4-4.50 > TWaL (4) > PoM (3.5-4)

(4-4.5) **

Know I said I loved it less than their other albums, but it does top their first two (both awesome albums in their own right)
