5 stars In Oceanic ISIS found their sound and what a breakthrough album this is. Isis began to involve more mellow passages in their music and they developed their own unique sound. Very heavily influenced by godflesh, neurosis, and Tool. Oceanic is what sets them apart from other bands. This album has a more edgy sound than Panopticon or In the Absence of truth. Highlights of the album are the opener The beginning and the end, The other, False Light,Carry, Hym, and my favorite track on the album is Weight. i never thought metal would be so beautiful, a very melodic song. If your starting out with Isis get Oceanic, previous albums like Red sea and Mosquito Control are very heavy compared to recent releases. A must have album if you are a Post Rock Metal fan. The first Isis masterpiece gets 5 stars
