Well, ok. But I'm more trying to figure out how people in here would describe their sound. Or maybe what features from "Through Silver In Blood" end up on the new album and how those features are used in an interesting new way. New features, Etc.

Be descriptive as shit.

I actually read the review of "Times of Grace" that just popped up on the front page. After doing some research, I decided to get "Through Silver [...]". But I really liked how "Times [...]" sounded.

Honor has a heavy Americana atmosphere. There's less creepy and more hopelessness.

That's a surprisingly short but very descriptive...um, description.

If you liked Through Silver In Blood you should definitely get Enemy of The Sun and Times of Grace. Through Silver is their most claustrophobic sounding.

On the subject of the new album...



that song destroys

Nope, I think it's probably their best.

I'm just getting into Neurosis. I love Souls at Zero(Sludge masterpiece imo) and Enemy of the Sun but the Through Silver still just sounds really boring to me. I'm sure that'll change with more listens though.

I listened to Through Silver and Blood like 8 or 9 years ago, and I hated. Now, I am troo.

I recently went back to this with a much different ear. (If you go back in the thread you'll see I had trouble understanding this work; it turns out I was listening to it incorrectly.) I have to do this from time to time with different releases, especially after I've been stuck in one particular musical area.

Anyway, after giving it another go... I don't like it. I at least understand the album now, though. I can't really give any significant criticism for what it is. It works well for what it is. It simply doesn't speak to me.

I never liked Through Silver in Blood, despite loving Neurosis.

I just never enjoyed it, I dunno why. I always liked Eye of Every Storm and Souls at Zero better.

I'm curious as to how you were listening wrong. Was it some sort of filter you were applying to the music that caused a particular bias of some sort or something else?

I'm fond of the record but I rarely give it a go; mostly due to it being so gosh darned long. Too much time and effort for me to devote in my old age.

I usually find it difficult to properly articulate these types of things, but I'll try.

I assume, like me, that when listening to different types of music, you intentionally or otherwise alter the way in which you focus your attention on the music. To give an obvious contrast, when listening to Death Metal I generally pinpoint my attention on the guitars (their dynamics, development, motion, etc.) while allowing the surrounding accompaniment to effectively fuse together as a whole that interacts with the primary instrument, the guitar. However, when listening to Black Metal, the music generally being of a more atmospheric nature, I tend to allow my attention to diffuse and broaden to allow an enveloping of the manifesting sonic aura.

These two approaches to listening work very well for the most part. However, certain works, including various Death Metal and Black Metal works, require a different approach. Specifically, it involves a pseudo-midpoint approach in which focus must be reframed to distinguish all instruments and listen to their interplay and development from a view that is slightly detached (for lack of a better word) but not indifferent or disengaged. This final approach is typically where I run in to trouble and what I believe is the appropriate method for listening to the work in question.

Does any of this make sense?

Certainly. Have you considered listening to new music in reverse process? Meaning to start somewhat aloof while still engaged and focusing on particulars or drifting to encompass particular aspects on the follow up listens?

Not really. Once I trained my ear away from listening to Rock music and into Death Metal, then quickly Black Metal, I normally just instinctively followed an appropriate approach.

For example, I automatically take the third approach when listening to Classical music, but also with Scarlet Evil Witching Black and Final Holocaust (from first listen). The latter of those two is not necessarily obvious, but it was quite eye opening to me. Therefore, it is strange that I would listen to Through Silver in Blood inappropriately for so long. I can maybe think of a few other examples where I didn't immediately catch on, but never something in a repeated fashion like this.
