In a few words:
Here is the breakthrough of Isis. An album that is related with the ocean, but not only on the title. The album really has a marine - trippy/experimental atmosphere (the sound effects are very "underwater"). Apart from the "trip side", the album has also a "heavy side", where hardcore riffs and vocals exist. Both "sides" are combined in most of the songs and they give a unique sound to this album.

Personal highlights:
"The Other", "Carry" and "Weight"
