Given To The Rising is like being submerged in an isolation tank — it’s enveloping, subverting the senses with surreal visions we’d swear were our own, cleverly jarring and disorienting consciousness beyond any footing in reality.
As any diehard Neurosis fan will tell you, there’s a moment with every new record and live show at which the band will stop as if the world has frozen in position, then suddenly kick into the primordial wail that we’ve all come to recognize as the “Neurosis note” that forces the listener’s head and shoulders to lurch and sway almost uncontrollably. Given To The Rising is Neurosis at its most captivating and hypnotic.

Put simply, the album is some of the band’s most raw and immediate material to date, but it is also more complexly orchestrated and richly thickened with psych-damaged overtones. Given To The Rising is more than a just a powerful collection of songs — it’s more like a religious experience. While personal epiphanies are repeatedly told by those who’ve been converted by Neurosis’ sensory overloading live show as well as its recordings, there’s a hypnotic quality to this album that takes hold from the opening guitar squall of the title track. Once again recording with revered engineer and longtime friend Steve Albini (as the band has for five previous albums,The Eye of Every Storm in 2004, A Sun That Never Sets in 2001, Sovereign in 2000 and Times of Grace in 1999), Given To The Rising bears the band’s signature crushing heft and cathartic force. However, it also finds Neurosis delving into increasingly psychedelic effects and twisted, inventive song structures. […]
