Thats a really tough call for me seeing as all of their albums are really unique.

This has the best theme I think.

Musically, I don't think I could ever choose. I enjoy almost all their full albums equally.

What is the theme about (in short, if someone doesn't mind explaining). I never really cared for lyrical themes and therefore never looked into this one. I'm interested now since everyone says its good. This Message Edited On 01.23.08

Basically, it's a story about a guy who falls in love with a woman. But he finds out that she is having an incestuous relationship with her brother. Distraught by this, he drowns himself because of it.

That's the basics though. I'd advise looking at wikipedia or something to get the full flesh and bones of the concept.

I think I've heard enough about the concept behind that album hahahahaha. Wasn't it written after a short story or something around that nature?
One album I do enjoy the lyrics to is Panopticon. I remember learning in school about what a Panopticon is/represents and I thought the meaning of it fit the music perfectly.

Isis always just sound like sonic wallpaper to me... I just cannot get into them whatsoever. It all sounds very methodical and well done so I don't exactly hate them, it's just that I their music illicits no emotion within me.

I just love the water type theme of the album. It makes it flow.

This album is really good all the different layers of sound just make it immense. The first song is brilliant and so is 'Carry' (which i'm listening to now!!)

The Beginning and the End is definitely one of the highlights. I love the interplay between the riffs and drumming throughout that song.

^^^The end of that song has one of the sweetest bridges ever. Its just so intense after the double snare drum tap.

Yeah, immense stuff. A lot of their material has these massive build ups with superb climaxes.

The builds on this album, I find, are so complicated, even though they are very simplistic in terms of chord progressions etc.. Really well thought out.

Yeah. That's what I love so much about Isis. You can tell that everything has been carefully constructed. That's evident on pretty much everything they've ever released, particularly In the Absence of Truth.

In the Absense of Truth is the pinnacle of post metal, hands down! I've never heard an album like that before. One of my top 5 albums of all time!

I really don't know why this album is less popular than ITAOT and Panopticon.
