Are people reviewing this on Neurosis past efforts?
on 18 March 2013
Through Silver In Blood is one of the albums that I come back to when I start to lose faith in the way forward for Post Metal. It grabs me every time and makes me listen to it from start to finish. Which is why I think I must have missed the point with Honor Found In Decay. Both albums are by the same band, but this doesn't grab me as growth. It's been many years since I've looked forward to turning something up to eleven as much as I have this new effort by Neurosis. It's also been many years since something that has filled me with anticipation on this level has disappointed soo much. Mogadon music kind of covers how it left me feeling. I really wanted to love this album. I did. But, it just wasn't there. If you have heard about the seminal Neurosis and want to have a listen, don't start here. If you are someone who has dabbled with the band in the past and are looking to come back to the fold, don't do it with this album. If your a fan and have most or all of their stuff, you have probably already discounted what I have to say as the ravings of a musical plebe, and will buy it anyway. Honor Found In Decay is overrated. There I said it. Approach with caution.
