Is, basically, incredible.
this abum is pretty much as good as it gets
- it is one of the most astonishing records I have ever heard.
It has EVERYTHING.
'Oceanic' is one of the greatest albums of all time, much better than Panopticon (although that's amazing as well).
One of the best gigs of all time was Isis at the Mean Fiddler when they were touring 'Oceanic.' The equivalent date on the 'Panopticon' tour didn't compare.
I was only jesting.
They're both incredible.
Not to "get" ISIS? I have tried, I really have. It's too sludgy for my ears.
to have a different opinion to that of other people?
Is my personal favourite.
a rhetorical question posed as a less confrontational alternative way of stating that "I don't like ISIS".
I completely understand why a LOT of people can't listen to Isis. To the trained ear they are something special (second only to Neurosis of course) but if I was just getting into progressive heavy music I might not give them a second listen. Cult of Luna are far more accessible in my mind, if a little more depressing.
