Just as good as LYSF and F#A#.., this one is not to be dismissed. Mladic might be my favorite Godspeed track

I don't expect these guys to ever surpass what they did on LYSFLATH, that would just be an unreasonable expectation. But I do think this is their second best.

That's what you call talent. They wouldn't be able to make a bad record even if they tried.

Love this. Different I think from their other stuff. Great comeback. Wish I could see them live! Love the way mladic builds from the spacemen3 jam then the bass kicks in and then that riff! Amazing production.

This entire album is instrumental and it’s post-rock at its absolute best. It’s tough to explain this album, it has almost immeasurable depth and breadth, like listening to a beautifully crafted symphony. If you’re familiar with the band Explosions In The Sky, then you’re familiar with this type of music. It is absolutely beautiful, the kind of music that you turn on loudly, lay down and meld into, losing yourself in the music. It’s amazing and I highly recommend it. It’s probably their best album since “Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven". There aren’t really highlights that I can list either, as this is an album that needs to be listened to all the way through, though I will say the first track, “Mladic", is absolutely amazing.
