WHAT DO YOU THINK?
One of the best debut albums and one of the best albums even in general.
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.
Favorite Tracks: ALL OF IT
Least Favorite Track: Uh, none
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.
