Another exceptional release by Neurosis. All the hallmarks of their trade are there.. quality, heavy, intense, dark, cathartic music. The production is exactly as it should be - not only have the vocals and guitars never sounded better, but there is outstanding use of electronics on this release, providing a pervasive mood and ambience that works together with the band, and giving this record a character of its own. There are very few bands who consistantly get it as spot on as this. Having lived with it and absorbed it over the last few years, I can easily say it ranks amongst their best work. No hesitation in giving this 5 stars.
