Really special album. GY!BE's best work having listened to each of their consistent discography in full. Incredible amount of instrumental diversity and is a great full album listen. Some records that last 90 mins can become taxing or uninteresting. Not this. One of the best of the decade. Also, seeing Sleep live was life-changing.
Favourite Tracks: Storm, Static, Sleep
Least Favourite Tracks: Antennas to Heaven, if i haaad to choose.
Heres what to expect when you listen to this album
(1) It’s really long coming in at 1 hour and 27 minutes
(2) It has only 4 tracks
(3) Track 1 ‘ Storm ‘ is 22 minutes 30 seconds
(4) Track 2 ‘ Static’ is also 22 minutes 30 seconds
(5) Track 3 ‘ Sleep’ is 23 minutes 15 seconds
(6) Track 4 ‘ Like Antennas To Heaven ‘ is 19 minutes
(7) The album is instrumental bar some old fella talking about Coney Island at the start of Sleep , a Folksy loop at the beginning of track 4 and some children chatter further in to track 4
(8) This album is really really good!
(9) Preferably listened to in the one sitting
(10) Even better with headphones on in a dark room to just completely take you away....
This album feels grander than life. It is a life-changing experience, and I truly mean it
The greatest album of all time for me
Like A Crow Looked At Me, Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven to me is one of those records you listen to once a year to feel the magic all over again. This should have been the best record of 2000. But I do understand why it isn't.
Not only is this a modern masterpiece, this is an album that changed instrumental/ post rock. It doesn't even matter what it changed in terms of music than what it sparked in the hundreds of thousands of people that listened to this album.
Without a single spoken word I understand everything GYBE is saying in this project, such an album like this can be compared to Coltrane or Beethoven's masterpieces.
If you're looking for something that's raw, beautiful and eccentric at the same time then look no further.
I really don't know why but this reminds me of Dawn of the Dead movie a lot. Maybe it's the spoken part in Storm, seems like you're in the supermarket during a zombie apocalypse. Horrifying album. Fantastic movie.
The greatest instrumental rock album and the third best instrumental album (after Kind Of Blue and A Love Supreme) IMO.
The opening track "Storm" conveys a lot of different emotion in just one track. The beginning is victorious with trumpets and thundering drums making it sound like the most fantastic thing ever. The song then takes a dark turn and gets downright scary, before it end with some beautiful piano in the end.
The next track "Static" is more mysterious and starts and ends with static noise. In between where the actual instrumentation is, the track slowly builds itself up to a chaotic, unsettling climax.
"Sleep" is built around a beautiful and sad melody, that gives me tha feels all the time, and than the album ends perfectly with "Like Antennas To Heaven...".
Where their debut (F♯ A♯ ∞) was a brilliant dark, moody album, LYSFLATH takes it to the next level. It doesn't convey a single mood as well, but it wins on variety.
"Storm" hits you like a brick. An amazing brick.
When I first listened to this album, I knew nothing about it except that this site loves it and it has really long tracks. No other album has surprised me the same way this one did. I didn't even know this kind of music existed before I heard this.
