First of all, if you're familiar with Neurosis this album may be a shock.
Or maybe it won't; every Neurosis fan knows that this band slowly progresses, matures and develops over time, much like a child.
With their first album, Pain Of Mind they were only a newborn entity; kicking and screaming with all hardcore brutality.
The next couple of albums saw Neurosis developing into infancy, growing thoughts and emotions. Enemy of The Sun and Through Silver In Blood see Neurosis progressing further, becoming slower and more intricate, adding soundscapes and rich textures. Times Of Grace sees the band maturing, mid twenties kind of thing; The heaviness is still there but the songwriting is more mature and experimental.
Then we arrive at A Sun That Never Sets. The band is now mature and comfortable with it's sound. Heaviness gives way to superb songwriting and original musical ideas. Subtle, Mark Lanegan-style singing replaces screaming and roars. Steve Von Till gets more of a look in on the vocal front: much like Away from Times Of Grace.
The album is much more depressing and subdued than anything they've put out before. This gives way to more developed songwriting and instrumentation and it really shows. Falling Unknown lasts 13 minutes and carry you through vast, barren lands of bleak desert. The Tide shows off Von Till's voice and new slants towards melody instead of bludgeon. Of course it wouldn't be Neurosis without the bludgeon so it's still there. In fact the heaviest thing I've heared by the band is the last couple of minutes of Stones From The Sky: it gets gradually more distorted and the music mimics skipping like the disc is wrecked then it stops abruptly.
This is a magnificent album: accomplished, majestic and an overall easier listen than Neurosis' other albums.
Buy if you appreciate Neurosis, Isis and clever emotional metal.

Quite different from Times Of Grace and what came before, because at first listen it is a bit of a shock, Von Till and Kelly actually sing on this album. Now when I say sing I dont mean Celene Dion or anything! but unusually audible. Some might think this is a bit too different but lets face it, none of these songs are ever gonna be on Top OF The Pops! It opens with the usual, melancholic instrumental number "Erode" and follows on with "The Tide", a slow broody piece, accompanied by violin and viola to excellent effect. From here in it gets a little heavier but retains the calssical side, which suits the album perfectly to create ultimate cacophony! Not an album suited to someone looking for the next "Limp Biskit", but Neurosis have been around for a long time and will continue to do so if this album is anything to judge by, mesmerising stuff!!

Neurosis's seventh full length studio album A Sun That Never Sets was released in 2001, following up their classic 1999 release Times Of Grace and saw the band develop their unique and creative sound further, expanding their sound and exploring new territories while still in part maintaining their trademark crushing, sludgey metal sound.

First of all, let me just say that describing art of any kind is difficult and I apologize if anything here comes across as either pretentious or seems to infer some idea of inherent superiority, that is not my intention whatsoever and indeed I dislike reading such things myself.

Neurosis themselves are a pioneering and important act with surprising origins in hardcore punk, who released a continuingly diverse and impressive set of albums throughout their career that cause extremely high praise from fans despite their almost non-existent commercial potential. They are the kind of band who people will call `genius,' genuinely and very often.

To say that A Sun That Never Sets is a challenging record is a grave understatement, indeed if this was your first Neurosis album and you listened to it without first hearing anything influenced by it to acclimatize yourself then it would be entirely understandable if you flat out hated the record on initial listens.

As with all Neurosis records, the challenge of uncovering the quality music underneath is very rewarding and once you overcome the dense textures and interminable slowness, you will discover an almost beautiful record you never imagined would exist on the same disc you disliked so much before.

Oh dear, what happened? After the sublime "Times of Grace" this is a major dissapointment.

The main problem is the hilariously overwrought delivery of the lyrics, songs like "From the Hill" are meant to be dark and forboding but just sound silly.

The reason for 2 stars instead of 1 is if this were a instrumental album it would be quite good.
