New Neurosis?! It's no wonder the press release is in all caps. The sludge titans have been going thirty years, if you can believe it, and they commemorate being older than me by releasing a brand new album called Fires Within Fires. That kinda grittily gorgeous album art sums up the band, really -- their post-metal hints create a gorgeous landscape on which they repulse with the usual metal, and this one, produced by Steve Albini, will have double the rot.

8/10 Greg B. Customer review, 3rd February 2017
At 40 minutes long and with just 5 tracks, it’s a particularly brief offering, especially when their last two efforts have been 20-30 minutes longer. But despite this, Neurosis show us that there is no need for them to overstay their welcome with ambient post-apocalyptic atmospheres of the past. Instead, they’ve presented themselves at their most raw, their most natural and at their most realistic they’ve ever sounded. The heart and soul of Fires Within Fires lies with that lyric, “Peeling skin away, reveals the heart”, because that’s what they have done here, and they’ve managed to achieve that perfectly on this album.
