Ever get the feeling you're being watched?..."FEAR OF THE DARK! FEAR OF THE DAAAARK!"...no, not exactly. Not like being watched by Sully and Mike Watshisname from your bedroom closet. No. I'm talking about being watched. Government surveillance, chemtrail conspiracy theory...you know, Unquestionable Presence type stuff. That's what Panopticon is about. I harken to visions of nuclear warheads soaring up into the sky from undisclosed sites on the rural countryside (thanks Terminator 3).

Rating: 8 It quickly started to grow on me, after the first listen.

Y u disband.


Perhaps they felt they had nothing more to offer; in fact "Wavering Radiant" is a damn good album but ultimately unoriginal.
Imo it was the best choice and an honest way to end a wonderful career... Unlike many other bands who run out of ideas but keep releasing sterile albums...

This one is their masterpiece, btw.

agree with everything except the unoriginal part. ...Radiant is by far my favorite album by them and I cannot think of another album to compare it to.

Rating: 7 I love this album, it's my first from Isis, and I'm looking to get more from them. The only other album I have from them is Wavering Radiant, which is awesome.

Rating: 9 Certainly one of the best albums this genre had to offer.

Rating: 8 No matter what, the peek of their music for me will always be Oceanic. Not that this one isn't great, but If only Oceanic had "Wills Dissolve" in it...
