I Can See You Did you see your people? They all turned out for you We were all together not so long ago When the light reclaimed you We were left clawing at the sky In the oceans we can find you For the sun we praise your name In the dirt we pray for god to bring you back again I can see you, I can see you In the void the stones are turning and turning and turning I can see you, I Album) see you.
I Can See You The Eye Of Every Storm. It's a formulaic metaphor that requires little explanation. That innovation is not the last word in achievement is a fact often overlooked in appraisals of value. The transmission of a heritage can be more aesthetically fulfilling to some listeners than a new permutation of aural components. Cognition is binary: The human desire for novelty is twinned with an equally imperative desire for continuity. The Eye of Every Storm.
I see what they mean, but have a hard time connecting the concept to this record. There are periods of respite within the maelstrom, but these are so tense and tightly coiled that they still imply an unabated cacophony. Isis and Pelican. When I talk about their title being a metaphor for the album, you can clearly see this within the music and lyrics. Nature has its ways of showing us happiness ie.
Neurosis use this as a metaphor to create their music and lyrics around. Their music is like nature in that it can be calm and serene one moment and violent the next. The music uses this to create peaks and valleys that take the listener on a ride expressing all of these moments found in natures bi-polar waether patterns. The vocals are at least comprehendible as they are roared one moment and softly spoken throughout.
This makes it easier for the listener to pick up on how the lyrics fit with the music being played. An example of the lyrics being metaphorically used through nature is shown below. You lie in the snow, cold but not dead Stare into the sun, long since its last heat A chilly depiction from the first song on the album "Burn". What the lyrics mean in this album, who knows!
Spiritual, emotional, cerebral are all words that you could use to describe this band and everything about them. Think of the instruments on this album as the details that come with a weather system such as thunder, rain, or snow falling. Sorry, there are no sunny days to be found on here. The songs are bleak and overcast with a chance of the sun possibly peaking its head around a cloud. The music on this album contains Album) very diverse bunch of songs.
The bridge in this song is almost like the calm before a storm. Keyboards using two notes set the tone for the build before the song comes crashing down on itself with Neurosis - The Eye Of Every Storm (CD guitars and one of the longest screams ever captured on audio possibly.
One other song on here follows suit called "Left to Wander", which is by far the heaviest song on this album. The rest of the songs here show no other formulaic methods, Album). These songs contain everything from guitars that range from softly picked interludes to walls of noise, and keyboards that pulse and vibrate to create backdrop to the heaviness.
Drums and bass are there but take a back seat to the roared vocals and hugely amplified guitar work. The last song on this album, "I Can See You", contains an acoustic opener that is followed up by another monstrous riff.
This is the only song on the album that has a strange time comfortably fitting in alongside the rest Album) the songs due to this fact, Neurosis - The Eye Of Every Storm (CD. It has a weird feel but still retains the Neurosis quality. Neurosis have created a brilliant piece of work here. As simplistic as it sounds, listeners with little patience will be turned off immediately after the first song.
Fans of their previous albums may enjoy a song or two but will probably complain about the lack of heavier tracks unlike their past albums. I quite frankly, find this to be an asset to Neurosis because they are only adding more dynamics into the music. The music is very well thought out and the metaphorical use of nature simply heightens the listening pleasure tenfold. Neurosis have looked at their natural surroundings and made an album out of it.
And that folks, takes a lot of brains and patience. Tweet Recent reviews by this author. The Austerity Program Beyond Calculation. Godflesh Pure.
