  1. Ok, so this review makes the album sound very promising. But I’m surprised now about the length of the songs on this record. Originally, the lengths suggested this 5-track album would be 60+ min with the closer, Reach, topping 23 minutes! Even now, if you google the album, it shows those longer song lengths. Now, if you read the 2 published reviews online, plus if you look at the track lengths on iTunes, it looks like this will be barely 40 minutes. Maybe that’s ok, but with a Neurosis release, you sort of expect epic in every way possible. I’m actually still holding out some hope that the band is trying to pull off a hoax similar to what Old Man Gloom did 2 years ago. OMG tricked reviewers into thinking The Ape of God was a single disc, but then just shortly before the release date, it was revealed to actually be a double album with 4 more tracks and some of the songs even stretched out more.

    • Yeah, I was surprised with the lengths too, but as long as the quality is there. I’d heard it was 40 minutes, so I resigned myself to this being a bit like an extended EP.

  2. What’s the story with vocal presence on this record? Crossing my fingers for some sweet, sweet and long absent Dave backing vocals
