Fires Within Fires is yet another invaluable contribution from this legendary band.


Fires Within Fires once again proves Neurosis to be a strong and inventive creative force.

Faster songs and a willingness to further explore their calmer odysseys make for their most rewarding release in over a decade.
The Needle Drop
One of sludge metal's most legendary bands drops another solid release.

Fires Within Fires is a piece of music that’s too skimpy to be a full-blooded Neurosis LP and too bloated to be a lean, concentrated Neurosis EP. There’s no shame in this, but at this point in their career Neurosis are being vastly outperformed by a legion of younger bands they’ve influenced, from Pallbearer to Inter Arma to Dead to a Dying World.


On their 11th studio album, Fires Within Fires, you'll find little that strays from the realms they visited on their previous material — particularly their 2000s-onwards output — but that's in no way detrimental to the album.
