Panopticon songs Product Information
Panopticon album for sale by Isis was released Oct 19, 2004 on the Ipecac (Label) label. If the glacial dynamics of previous metal and hardcore abstractions Celestial and Oceanic didn't prove that Isis was a heavy band in every sense, then Panopticon should do the trick. Panopticon CD music The title comes from 18th century philosopher Jeremy Bentham's prison design, which was later referenced by Michael Foucault in the 20th century. The idea is that a centrally placed guard or watcher can keep track of a large number of prisoners, and it excited Bentham and concerned Foucault. Panopticon CD music contains a single disc with 7 songs. ...See Full Description

||Amazing, Sonically Breathtaking.|
Another flawless performance by a band that might not be flying under the radar anymore. With "PANOPTICON", Isis refreshes their fans after the amazing release of "Oceanic" a couple of years ago. Long, complex tracks that take their time to build up but eventually become walls of melodic but crushing guitar. "Backlit" is my favorite for it's catchy vocal changes and heavy guitar explosions, but every song on this disc is a masterpiece. One of those CDs you can leave in your CD player for weeks. Simply Amazing and their best work yet.

this is it-they have finally perfected their sound! not that oceanic and celestial weren't excellent, but this takes it up a notch. their grasp has finally matched their reach, so to speak. the oceanic (no pun) density of their sound has never sounded as clear, but the majestic power is in no way dimmed by this fact. Fans of post-rock and metal both will find much to love here. Check out Red Sparrows too, as it is also great. PS Neurosis did influence this band, but their sound is groundbreaking and unique, always has been.

||this album is one of my top albums of all the time!!!|
Truly mesmerazing. The music are just 7 piece of art. They are more post-rockish now like a metal version of Godspeed you!Black Emperor. Harcore vocals. The riffs are massive and sludgy and the music really atmospheric. U can't get wrong with this kind of music!buy this cd full of art.

||Without a doubt their best record|
Excellent CD of lengthy post-rock epics. Isis borrows a page from Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor. The sound is toned down quite a bit from their first album and the rather randomly placed screams of Aaron Turner are much more subtle. What amazed me on this album is how atomspheric guitars and bass are. The best example of this would be the instrumental song "Altered Course."
