    Great cd. I never thought i would get into that kind of music as i've always listened to heavier stuff like Tool, Opeth, Deftones, etc. but eventhough i still enjoy that type of music, i find my musical tastes expanding and i've been getting into more "easy listening" kind of stuff.

    I heard peole raving about Sigur Ros so i gave them a listen figuring they would be like Dredg or something but i was way off (not in a bad way though). I was suprised i enjoyed it as much as i did. I really appreciated the feeling each song had and its overall calming effect.

    Listen to it when the winter comes. It will take on a whole new feel. It is the quintessential cold weather album. I absolutely love the last track, how it just builds and builds until it just erupts....brilliant.

    :werd: i put the cd in my "night driving" category. On my way home, i put the cd in, rolled down all my windows, turn the ac on just a bit to get a little cool air going and drove. it was a great feeling.

    "()" = amazing.

    Takk, Agaetis Byrjun, and Von are all fantastic as well.

    Takk was leaked a while ago.

    I figured you were into post-rock. Thought your name was a reference to godspeed you black emperor!

    ps. seeing sigur ros in 6 days!


    Now try out 'explosions in the sky - the earth is not a cold dead place'

    I've actually never heard of anything by Godspeed You Black Emperor. When i heard sigur ros (which was the first band of that kind of music that i've heard) i saw that band lumped into that genre so i tried to check them out but couldn't find anything.

    i'm trying to check out 'explosions in the sky - the earth is not a cold dead place' right now.

    "Lift Your Skinny Fists like Antennas to Heaven" is a MUST have for Godspeed You! Black Emperor! I am in love with that 2-discer.

    See, everyone always suggests skinny fists first... but im a huge fan of yanqui u.x.o. "Rockets Fall On Rocket Falls" is the best godspeed song, bar none.
