4 beautiful and hearty tracks that last for a good length. I recommend that you sit down and listen to this record, unbothered by anything, in its entirety because the atmosphere it creates is so dense that you can't be distracted. Arguably GY!BE's greatest release, LYSFLATH is essentially something more than music. There is no other band that can produce quite the sound of the amazing GY!BE.

A grandiose and eerily beautiful album. It's beautiful. At times, lulling you to sleep, and at times keeping you on the edge of your seat, absolutely thrilled. The instrumentation on this album is arranged and composed so well, it's distinctively Godspeed - nobody else could make something like this.

At times it can be really cheesy, and totally fit the stereotype of what everyone says about post-rock. But this is one of the albums where those stereotypes came from. It's a treasure for the genre.
