The closest it'd get for Neurosis to collaborate with Swans (although, who knows?), Neurosis & Jarboe is an unique album among their discography, which focuses on their mainly experimental side that was a result of their Swans influence, aided by Jarboe's famous vocal style. Only until the last song (Seizure) we get to hear Scott and Steve's melancholic grunts, but through most of the album we have Jarboe exerting her full vocal range with shrieks, moans, screams and delirious frenzy, while Neurosis performs their doom/tribal kinda style (heard in some of the songs from A Sun That Never Sets) with plenty of noise and synths experimentation. The only music akin to this album is either one of Jarboe's solo album, or Swans' earlier career, with Jarboe instead of Gira. Absolutely essential material.
