The music on this compilation is essential for any Isis fan. However, on the packaging, there is a download code advertised, but not included, for 5 bonus tracks. Ipecac has remedied this problem. You can download the tracks on the Ipecac website for free.

Enjoy.

I am glad I belatedly decided to hear this collection of demos, unreleased tracks, and other Isis not found on the group's main albums. The bulk of the material is demos and remixes of tracks from Oceanic (2002), Panopticon (2004), In the Absence of Truth (2006), and Wavering Radiant (2009). Two of the highlights are the long "Grey Divide," which ends Disc One, and an acoustic version of "20 minutes/40 years," which ends Disc Two.

Disc Three is a DVD with five videos. They look like projects of film school students -- very arty. I found only one of them to be somewhat interesting. It seemed to be a shaggy dog story about a spiky alien blob. Unfortunately the DVD doesn't play in a CD player.

The Ipecac CD case is four-fold cardboard with sleeves, no jewel case inserts. The photography and artwork is stunning, apropos the dark music.

It was hearing The Deal (2015), the superb album by Aaron Turner's latest band Sumac, that led me back to this Isis compilation. If you've heard their albums and want more, Temporal is highly recommended.

Obviously if you love Isis, this is near a no brainer. The two CD set starts out a hair rough on the production values, but then rolls into some absolutely brilliant Isis pre-studio material that leaves no doubt in my mind. Buy it.

If I was talking to person who hadn'tg been introducted to Isis, I would first send them to Panopticon and then Wavering Radiant,but if you are a seasoned Isis fan, this this set is a must, if you get the edition with the DVD, it is magnificent if you werent ablet o catch them live at a show to be able to see what it was like. I hope like, may other bamds that split up, eventually they reform and tour and make new music together, Isis, was something really special.

I normally don't like compilations, and I would be hard pressed to give one five stars. But this one comes as close to that as any, with all the content that it has. Isis is one of my favorite bands of all time, so I have heard most of the material before. Some demos are pretty rough, but when you add up all the goodies that come in, I think that it's a worthy purchase.

My personal highlight is the "epic" 16 minute long Grey Divide. It starts off with a "happy" melody only to be dissolved into distortion and something dark by the end. Really nice. Other pieces that most people haven't had access to digitally are Way Through Woven Branches and Pliable Foe, which are both excellent songs. The instrumental Ghost Key and acoustic / instrumental 20 Minutes / 40 Years are nice listens as well. If you add the two covers, there is already a lot on there that most Isis fans haven't heard before.

Including some of the demos like Carry or False Light may be overkill, since there are so many better live and studio recordings of these two pieces out there.

If you are new to Isis, I would recommend starting with one of their full length albums, or even Isis Live 6, which has little bit of everything.

As always, the artwork and presentation are excellent. And so was the move to provide everyone with a free access download code after the initial problem. Good work, Isis!

Isis, the quintessential progenitors of the 2000's post metal movement, have delivered what's likely the final release of any Isis material for the foreseeable future (unless they release another live album, that is.) For those of you who were overly enthusiastic about Isis, this collection for demos, rarities, and videos serves as an excellent epilogue on one of the best metal acts to gain prominence during the end of the nu-metal era. For the casual listener, the lack of consistency with the tracks is probably not enough for them to put this at the top of their favorites list. As an Isis fan, I have a lot of value for a demo version of Carry (my favorite song by them), but I doubt the casual listener would be geeked to hear a demo version of the song that lacks vocals. I could totally jam out to the acoustic version of "20 Minutes / 40 Years" but the kids expecting metal may be disappointed that it isn't more like the Wavering Radiant version. It's not that any of the music is bad, but it certainly seems to exist more for the enthusiastic Isis collector than it does for the purpose of introducing themselves to those who may have missed them the first time around.

While I've given two Isis albums 5 Star Ratings (Oceanic and Panopticon), I haven't given any other album a 3-star rating aside from their initial EP, Mosquito Control.
