The hardest part of being a music fan is keeping a straight face. Someone will hand you music that is misbegotten, tell you it's good and that many people really dig it. Your job is then to keep from laughing or crying until they're out of the room. Isis "Wavering Radiant" falls into the category of "I hope it's satire."

This reviewer = you?

Regardless, I've always thought of Isis as Neurosis-lite. Never even approached the quality of said band.

What is the best representation of Neurosis' quality? I've always been skeptical. I would like to hear something that's at least as good as, say, Prong or Coroner or Amebix.

I don't know if it will live up to your expectations but I think Enemy of the Sun and Through Silver In Blood are regarded as their masterpieces.

In my view:

(1) "The word as law" is the title of the album I heard.
(2) It is the quality of Amebix "Monolith" or Coroner "No More Color."

They do a pretty awful job at even copying the metal aesthetic.
