1 Converge 19

You missed the blog, man.

2 Neurosis 13

Heard the leak. It's okay. I hope there's a Grace-type of addition to it. I like A Sun that Never Sets more than everything else, though.

3 Eric Dolphy 12

I don't know if I've ever posted this, but here's Trane with Dolphy!

4 Freddie Hubbard 10

Aw, so cool. Thanks IamNotMe!

5 Defeated Sanity 9
How lame, no DS up on YouTube. Anyway, the new one is great. Worth a look if you're into brutal death.

6 Kagrra, 7

Yay!

6 Vital Remains 7

Haha, it always cracks me up when people makes these. Anyway, the new one is kind of boring. I'm starting to think they peaked on Dawn of the Apocalypse.

8 Oliver Nelson 6

Oh man, oh man.

9 Joscho Stephan 5

Yikes, so clean.

10 Béla Bartók 4

Right on. Too bad the sound kind of sucks.

    I love the new Neurosis, but I'm kinda a fanboy. I think there's too much atmospheric layers already for a Grace type thing :O

I think I'm in the minority because I like Sun and Eye more than their earlier stuff. Even though it's getting to be a little played out, it would be fun just to have that nice Grace addition.

    I like Eye of Every Storm the most just because I think it's the only Neurosis album where every song is perfect. All their others have one or two songs with some parts that are too long or just don't quite fit, but with Eye there's nothing I would change. After 5-6 listens I don't think their new album will quite rival it because At The End of The Road and Hidden Faces end too soon.

    Wow! I have to completely agree with both of you. Not only that Neurosis' CDs from 2001 and 2004 probably are my favorite albums ever (well, along Isis' 'Oceanic' of course), I'm also missing some more depth in Hidden Faces and think that the other song ends where it might have seen a mighty climax (think Falling Unknown). However the new album still is incredible. There's not a single Neurosis record which fails to be a masterpiece. Er .. well. I missed the blog.

    Some of their really early hardcore stuff is a bit hard to swallow. Worth buying only if you're a completist (talking pre-The Word as Law). I'll give this another listen this week. Heck, we'll do it as a blog when it finally drops.

    Hum, Hidden Faces is definitely one of my favourite track. The album is simply breathtaking for start to end. To me, there is no doubt the #1 album of 2007 has its name in Given to the Rising. I would go as far as stating it's Neurosis second strongest opus right after A Sun That Never Sets. But like Khanatist said, there's not a single Neurosis record which fails to be a masterpiece. How many bands with a 20+ years career can say that? The answer: none.

How many other bands with a 20+ years career can hold such a statement in regard to their discography? The answer: none. (Now that will make more sense, sorry for the double-post. Where's the edit function when you need it?)
