This was the most underwhelming release of Godspeed's discography for me. There was no massive satisfying climax or resolution like there was in projects like FA Infinity or Asunder. But GODDAMMIT WAS THIS THING BEAUTIFUL. I swear Godspeed are incapable of making a dull post-rock album, everything that they put out is fucking GOLDEN. If this is the worst record in your discography, then you must be doing something right!

By ditching the vocal samples, "Yanqui U.X.O." lacks the commentary of its predecessors and the climax is abrupt and a bit underwhelming. But it's still a gorgeous, emotionally-involving record that packs such an amazing punch in a discography that has already pulled so many punches and risks! Even if it's not their best record, that's not even saying much!

While not as deep, worked on, complete, and contextualized as works like F#A#Infinity or LYSFLATH, Yanqui UXO still manages to excel at the job of creating an immersive atmosphere and it does so in an incredibly beautiful manner.
Overall, great execution and performances, even if it doesn't live up to the complete awesomeness of the earlier albums the band had put out.
