Pretty much ^^ for me I played Oceanic a lot before I first heard panopticon. So that album has a soft spot.

I played oceanic a lot before this. then I got really into this and basically forgot about oceanic. then one day after a huge ISIS hiatus, I put on oceanic and it blew me away, had no idea why it wasn't one of my fav albums

I tend to listen to this more than Oceanic but it doesn't mean it's the better of the two. It's like how I don't usually listen to The Eye of Every Storm but when I do, I'm always blown away

EOES is a grower and jams soooooo hard after not hearing for awhile!



And on the notion of this being "prog", I'm down with that.

How isn't this prog tho? It pushed the boundaries pretty far when it came out.

The mindset that prog = 10 mins of scale runs, jazz influenced key changey metal is pretty limiting. Prog in itself is a mindset/philosophy, not a genre. Just like "technical metal" isn't a genre but an umbrella term to refer to bands who make techy music.


By that logic, anything can be prog dude. I agree it's more of a mindset/philosophy, but for taggin purposes, we gotta consider prog as a genre.

truth. of course this is forward-thinking/"progressive" in nature, but it basically has nothing in common with what most people consider "prog metal" besides odd time signatures
