One of the best post-rock albums I've heard, better then LYSFLATH and on par with Soundtracks For The Blind.

I have the version with The Dead Flag Blues, East Hastings and Providence. It is a unique album, even better than Lift yr. skinny fists imo. The intro to Dead Flag Blues is one of the most thrilling and unnervingly brilliant moments in music, and that voice is dreadful and dark and sends shivers down my spine every time. There are more moments like this throughout the whole F# A# as well as on LYSFLATH, and they all remind me of unsettling older horror movies which play with your psyche. Loveit!

We have both The Sun Sessions and Sunrise on the site, despite the fact that the latter is just an expanded version of the former. We have both Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: LA's Desert Origins despite the fact that the latter is just the former plus some B sides and alternate takes. If GY!BE had titled the CD version F#A#∞+1, both would be on the site, and this comment section wouldn't be full of so much confusion. That seems like a silly and arbitrary line to draw.

For those listening on Spotify, here's an explanation of tracklisting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%E2%99%AF_A%E2%99%AF_%E2%88%9E#Track_listing

Fascina ting and mesmerizing, but probably something I'd listen to only every now and then.

I really don't see the big deal. Lift Your Skinny Fists was a masterpiece, but this just really doesn't do much for me. I listened to the longer CD version, so here are my track ratings:
Dead Flag Blues 85
East Hastings 75
Providence 75
I guess I understand why people love this album, but to me it seems like some cool instrumental melodies and then just a bunch of random noises. And people are gonna be telling me that they're not random and they really mean something to the album, but I guess I just don't see it.

Providence isn't listed on here, but I have no particular favorite part. the album is so well put together and tracks are so cohesive with one another having a favorite track would be unfair to the experience. So very good and gives Lift yr skinny fists a run for its money.

One of my first Vinyl purchases. The vinyl came with extra goodies and features a looping end track, which I have never found on any other Vinyl record.

This album reminds me of the novel The Road, an end of the world. Though bleak, the message it sends is short, and the instrumentals can be hypnotic after a few listens.

Prefer the version with "Providence," but it's excellent either way.

Fun fact: The story behind the album title is that the first side starts in the key of F#, and the second side stars in the key of A#, with the infinite loop at the end... F♯A♯∞!
