An absolute masterpiece from front to back. I don't think I've ever heard such an epically depressing record in my life. I recommend that if you've never listened to this or any Godspeed record for that matter, go listen to it now.

Post apocalyptic perfection. This album contains some of Godspeed's most dark yet most important pieces of music. If I could choose one album to enjoy while the world is coming to end it would be this.

What you don't read in the cover is: on the road with Godspeed You! Black Emperor... and your post-rock experience won't be the same anymore!

Escathological, desolating, somber... Danny Boyle was inspired by this album for "28 Days Later", no wonder.

Probably my favorite Godspeed release. Something about that cacophony of noise after that long silence on Providence (the CD release at least) just says so much about the band. It's symbolic of the bits of hope that they hold on too despite the apocalypse encroaching around them. They rage against the dying of the night because they must. It's fantastic in all regards. Godspeed you Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
