Although trying to generalize the output of this very accomplished band is a somewhat dangerous practice, I shall have a go anyway. The way I see it, Neurosis releases two kinds of albums. Albums like "Through Silver In Blood" as well as the EP "Sovereign" showcase the first side of the band - really dense, cluttered and sample-heavy music which completely overwhelms the listener. On the other hand, an album like "Times Of Grace" favors a more minimalistic and direct approach, pulverizing the listener with repetitive yet very emotional riffs and only occasionally including any sort of additional sound.

I can see how something as sparse and brooding as this would've not rubbed me up the right way when I was first getting into post-metal, hence the '6' I seemingly gave this before, but this really is very fine. A step up from the previous couple of albums, this is right up with Through Silver In Blood and Souls At Zero for their best for me. An '8' for now but I could imagine it becoming a '9'. It's also probably (on some songs at least, not all) about as close as it gets to sounding like 'typical' post-rock/metal - I know they're pretty much the progenitors of the style but they sound different to Isis, Cult of Luna and their army of followers on most albums, but there's times on this that sound related, if not to those bands, then some of the darker post-rock bands. "Left To Wander" is probably my top pick off the album, love the second half of it
