OK, 'In the Fishtank' is old news already.
I've listened to 'In the Absence of Truth' all the way through once. Annnnnnnd my first reaction is...equivocal.
I was hoping for a complete change of direction, and on initial listen it sounds a little too much like 'Panopticon' - some of the guitar effects sound exactly the same.
On the plus side, Isis are blatantly totally incapable of doing something actively bad. Their drummer has always been kind of boring and he seems to have stepped up his game on this one.
There are a couple of welcome changes in direction - 'Firdous e Bareen' is totally different from anything they've done so far but I don't want to spoil the surprise.
I reckon its going to be a grower.
An early contender for favourite track - 1000 Shards.
Anyone else heard it?
