Their best album. The opening lines of the album made me know that I was about to listen to one of the best albums ever made. This album must be listened to both the CD and Vinyl version as they are different. Possibly the best post-rock album of all time.
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.
Gracias por Tanto, Y perdón por tan poco.
This is one of my all-time favourites. Post-rock and Post-apocalyptic. Great for road trips.
