AllMusic Review by

This budget-priced compilation offers a wealth of both audio and video content for the Neurot Recordings fan. After kicking off with "Burn," also the leadoff track for Neurosis' '04 effort Eye of Every Storm, the set goes on to feature material from the entire Neurot family. You know -- Oxbow, Grails, Tarantula Hawk -- all your charm school favorites. Highlights range from the soul-tearing pound of Zeni Geva's "Tyrranicide," through the extended noise jamming of Sabers, and on to Neurosis principal Steve VonTill, who contributes the brittle, near-folk dirge "Breathe" from his incredible 2002 solo effort If I Should Fall to the Field. Neurot Recordings is highly recommended, not only for aficionados of the label, but for anyone curious about the punishment and peacefulness riding high on the fringe.
