3.0 out of 5 stars High quality held back by the vocals, 25 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Wavering Radiant (Audio CD)
Having heard a lot of buzz about Isis via the Tool website, I decided to check their latest offering out, and I'm glad I did. There are some stunning rhythms and soundscapes to behold, driven by superb and tasteful drumming throughout.

Repeated listening is required to do Wavering Radiant justice, but the stand-out tracks are very rewarding once familiar. Also considering there are tracks over 7 minutes long on here, the whole album still flows effectively without becoming a chore.

However, the reason I rate this 3/3.5 stars, is the vocals. I am no stranger to the extreme music genre, but for me the gutteral vocals are just too ham-fisted and don't serve the music well. There are other ways Isis could experiment vocally without sledgehammering on top of the melodies.

There are some more melodic vocals along the way, which sit better within the overall sound, but even still they lack identity. Personally I think a new vocal style/singer is needed for the band to progress to any further heights.

In summary this is a worthy purchase, if a little frustrating that the vocals don't match the musical quality of the band otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic, 3 Jan. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I highly recommend this DVD, Alan Carr's routine is seamlessly delivered and does not let up with scathing wit and observations that everyone can relate to.

Alan's quips on Friday Night Project are the tip of the iceberg; fans and newcomers alike should grab this DVD and appreciate his true talent as an entertainer.
