| ||Bentham/Foucault's work regarding the panoptican is sort of the theme setter for the whole record. The song-titles obviously allude to Foucaultian exegetical remarks, but I can't make out most of the lyrical content (even though the vocals are HORRENDOUSLY cleaned up---my BIG caveat w/ this record).
Isis have had this Orwellian thing going for a while: Oceanic had to have been named after one of the provinces in Orwell's 1984. But, scanning for interviews on the net, I can't seen to find anything where anyone's actually asking Isis about this; it's unfortunate. |
