Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Islands/Tides is a self-released Demo CD by German experimental/ post hardcore act The Ocean ( aka The Ocean Collective). The Ocean is a band Iīve grown more and more fond of in the last couple of years and and itīs quite an experience listening to this first attempt from the band. There are five songs on the album and Islands/Tides is a full-lenght demo CD with itīs 40:21 minutes.

The music is very influenced by Neurosis ( at least to my ears) but The Ocean is already showing great promise and lots of orginial ideas on Islands/Tides. Crushingly heavy guitars, both clean and deep hardcore screaming male vocals are some of the elements in The Oceanīs sound. Add to that some very atmospheric parts with samples and other noises and you got yourself a pretty dark and intriguing album. A good example of the mood on the album is a movie sample in Islands 2 from Fight Club with Brad Pitt stating: We havenīt had a great depression in our generation. Our great depression is our lives.

The musicianship is great. Tight interplay and pretty good compositions even this early in their career. Actually the whole Island/Tides suite which consists of the last four songs on the album is an over 30 minute long song that the band used to play a lot in live concerts in the early years of their career. Siam which starts the album is not a part of the suite and itīs the weakest song here IMO.

So everything looks fine until now, but what about the production? Hmmm...Iīm sorry to say that the sound quality drags this album down a lot. Demo quality sound and not very impressive at that.

Islands/Tides is a promising start for The Ocean and style wise itīs comparable to the Fluxion (2004) album. Not as good as that one of course but fans of the band will probably enjoy Islands/Tides anyway. For me itīs somewhere between a 2 and a 3 star rating but as I do enjoy the music itīll be a small 3 star rating ( I might be a little to nice here). This one is mostly for the fans though and I would start with one of the regular studio albums if I were new to the band.
