I know there are some Isis fans here - pick your favorite album!

(Note: This is only out of the LP's, since if I added EP's and all the live albums the poll would be WAY too long!)

Mine used to be Oceanic, but lately In the Absence of Truth has taken over, I can't get enough of it. It really does sound like everything the band has been trying to achieve over the last several years, all in one place.

Panopticon. I enjoyed it the most out of their albums. Great use of atmosphere and heaviness.

I have to go with In The Absence Of Truth. I saw them preform most of it live, and it was breathtaking.

I'm jealous, I still haven't been able to catch them live

In absence of truth. it is a truly beautiful album. And Aaron Turner has an awesome clean voice, which sounds even better live.
I can't wait to see them at soundwave, with meshuggah and Janes Addiction. It'll be a fuckin sweet gig

I voted for Panopticon because the atmospheric instrumentals really put me in a good mood.

Although groundbreaking, it's hard for me to listen to this band often. I chose Panopticon, although I like their other works as well.

Really tough choice though. I'm gonna have to think about it for a while. I actually like all of them.

OK this is tough. Let me preface this post by saying I have listened to "In the Absence of Truth" over 100 times and have heard something different with each listen. This is why I have voted it the best album. I have listened to the other maybe 10 times a piece and have found "Panopticon" the most accessible/ heaviest, with "Oceanic" being their breakthrough album. Also I think this post may have originated before "Wavering Radiant" was released which definitely changes things. That album may be even more accessible than "Panopticon", (with Adam Jones from Tool ripping bad ass organ riffs) though not sure any better. So, if I had to choose: 1. "Absence" 2. (Tie) "Panopticon", "Wavering Radiant" 3. "Oceanic" 4. "Celestial". They are all amazing!!

Very difficult indeed. Interesting choice yours. Absence doesn't get much love compared to Panopticon and Oceanic. I went with Wavering...I love the bass guitar in that whole album.

Wavering Radiant is my favorite. Out of all the albums, that one has the most interesting, nuanced sound. I miss Isis sorely.

I love this band's work. They are very unique. I love both Wavering Radiant and Panopticon greatly, however if i had to choose, I would easily go with Panopticon. The first time I listened to it, I was in a daze, it was hypnotizing.

Isis is my all time favorite band and Panopticon is their best album and i think Altered Course id their best track specially if u see the live track but Panopticon has very great songs like In Fiction and So Did We also Oceanic album is amazing with tracks like Weight and From Sinking and Beginning And The End but Panopticon is diffrent in many ways its very very unique album from Isis and most important album of Post Metal till now
