Firstly, I am not exactly an aficionado of this type of music, I just happened to hear one of tracks on the radio - it must have been the epic Worlds in Collision - and knew I had to search it out.

I guess that GIAA can be thought to occupy the same territory as 65daysofstatic, Rothko and perhaps Mogwai - all bands I only know from listening to radio 1 in the halcyon days of John Peel. It may be unfair, however, to label GIAA's music as depressive rock. Yes it is often melancholic, dark and brooding, but that doesn't suggest depressing. It's more the kind of sound-scape you could imagine as the perfect accompaniment for watching the northern lights, or more realistically as late night listening in any high latitude. So this is not your out-for-a-run or fast driving soundtrack, or even background, it's music that deserves proper listening. It may even help provide inspiration for finishing that difficult second novel.

I spent a bit of time deciding which GIAA album to buy and eventually opted for Age of the fifth sun. Get on your headphones, relax and have a look up at the night sky on a clear night.

Very atmospheric ambient music. Music for space traveling. I really liked this album as every album I have bought from "God is an Astronaut".

This is the only music I listen to now 29 May 2010
By M. Haro - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you're a fan of God Is An Astronaut you'll like this album. I bought the album single "In the Distance Fading" earlier this year. Been waiting for the rest of the album for a while, so I'm glad it's finally out.

I'm still fairly new to this kind of music. I stumbled across these guys while surfing youtube looking for movie soundtracks. Being bored of the same ol' crap on the radio and my own collection of stuff, I needed to listen to something different, something new (for me, anyway). A new world opened up that day, thankfully, and I'm still lost in it and grateful for it.

Check out these bands too:

Explosions in The Sky
This Will Destroy You
Caspian

Those are the only ones I'm familiar with right now.

Another solid release! 20 July 2010
By Chefsprive - Published on Amazon.com
I was very excited to see that GIAA had released another album, and, after listening to it a few times, I am very happy with the quality of this release. I do have one comment, though. I own all GIAA's albums, and have enjoyed them all, but I'm starting to feel that I am listening to the same thing over and over. I understand the concept of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", but I am waiting for GIAA to raise the bar a little, and explore their style a little further. But, if you liked their previous albums, do not let my comment dissuade you from buying this album, it is very good. Enjoy!

One of their best, if not their best 18 Jan. 2012
By Clyde - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
God Is An Astronaut is my favorite Post Rock group. In short, it is because they have the best melodies and variation. I do like a lot of Post Rock bands, but some of the music can become overly repetitive and kind of all sound the same after many listenings. GIAA has the creative variations with noticeable melodies to give enjoyable listening for a long time.

I enjoy the "Age Of The Fifth Sun" slightly more than any of their others. I think it's their best. It's certainly worth a listen to anyone who likes Post Rock.

Great post rock album 17 Oct. 2013
By Eric Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A good friend of mine suggested I listen to God Is An Astronaut, and now I'm addicted. They are sometimes classified as post rock, though I struggle to understand what that tag really makes. Think great instrumental rock that at different times makes me think soundtrack, Cirque du Soliel, Rush or Yes beamed forward in 2013, etc. I really enjoy all of their albums!
