A masterpiece through sound. Surely is one of the most moving and creative albums I have ever listened to. I would recommend anyone to spend a couple of hours out of their day to appreciate this.

easily one of the most experimental and abstract records that i have listened to in my lifetime. this record give me chills while going through the whole project, and that made me really go back and reflect on what i had just heard. there is nothing that sounds like this album, nothing with the same mix of sounds and instruments like this.
fav tracks: storm, sleep

Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven no se explica, se siente, básicamente es eso, es prácticamente una ola de sensaciones con solo el correr de los minutos, y una vez que ese proceso se termina, solo basta callar, porque las palabras solo ensucian el sentido de todo esto.

Near perfection. When it comes to post-rock, GY!BE are the preeminent masters of the genre. Extremely intense, emotional, creative, and innovative, Lift Your Skinny Fists is truly a masterpiece.
