Neurosis - Fires Within Fires
Sigh. Look Neur-dawg I love you, I really do. I love every single one of yr releases, excepting Honor Found In Decay (just felt like a stall out amidst a pattern of constant but glacial change and growth), and this one trips out the gate with a title only a petulant warehouse poet could love. But really these stark empty poetics have always been kind of a thing with ya but they generally gain their power through song and repeated motif and all that whatnots. I mean I'm sure I'll plunk the coin down, either material or digi, for whatever else that you do next seeing as how I'll stay in an awkward, unfulfilling relationship til either you quit or I die. It's an Irish tradition. Thank the pagan blood of ancestral rabbit totems that the last two songs ('Broken Ground' and 'Reach') are Neur-dude jam-supreme or I might have had to rethink my relationship model.
