If I Should Fall to the Field is the second solo album from Steve Von Till of Neurosis. The musical style is quite different from that of Von Till's primary band. It is composed of acoustic based, folkish songs. While mostly original numbers, the album features some traditional songs as well as a Neil Young cover. The album's final track is a 1961 home recording of Steve's grandfather, Louis Von Till, reciting a poem, with instrumentation added by Steve and crew.
