DO THEY MEAN THAT LISTENING TO 20 MINUTES OF ISIS MUSIC FEELS LIKE 40 YEARS?
I still can’t decide what I think about Isis’ latest effort Wavering Radiant. On one hand, the Joe Baressi-produced effort is easily my favorite Isis release to date; the production is bigger, the songs more concise, the album less rambling. On the other hand, I’m not sure I’ll ever dig this band as much as people think I will or as much as I’m “supposed” to; I just find them boring most of the time. Sorry.
I do, however, dig the new video for the Wavering Radiant track “20 Minutes / 40 Years.” It’s trippy and artsy, but it’s really dark. That black ooze kind of reminds me of this Star Trek: The Next Generation episode I just watched (#nerdalert!) in which Troi’s shuttle-craft crashes on a planet inhabited solely by a filthy, evil, and very powerful slick of intelligent black ooze. This video is pretty cool but it’d definitely be hotter if Marina Sirtis were in it. She’s a fox!
