Decided to give this another chance. I felt I was too harsh on this one. I still think it's a bit too long, but I did enjoy the sound of it.

It's not as good as the previous record, but that's like complaining that one supermodel isn't as sexy as the other. More of an epic and heavenly vibe as opposed to F#A#'s apocalyptic one.

From Kurtco
I discovered Godspeed not long ago and it's one of the biggest slap I've had in recent years. The third opus of the uncompromising Canadians is a marvel. On a double album and in four tracks, they compiled all the songs played on stage the past year and a half, interspersed with sound collages. The first track, "Storm", begins as dissonant Wagner, and evolves to Sonic Youth, before ending on scary piano notes. On the second track, after the magnificent violin solo of "Chord # 3", we find the incredible "World Police And Friendly Fire", one of the most impressive musical climbs in the history of rock. Later, on "Mohneim", a saturated violin makes the race with a dynamic rhythm, creating the most epic piece of the band. The fourth track, closer to concrete experiments, is just great and underrated. If the useless term 'post-rock' was to serve something, it would surely qualify this record, located light years away from the production of past productions and current productions. The band composed of 3 guitars, a bass, a violin, a cello and two drummers ensures the feeding of our brains for a very long time.

10/10

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.

From Brad1770
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....
