Australasia
3.  Australasia by Pelican
The list author says:
  "'Instru-metal' that wrecks the competition; by turns crushingly heavy, beautifully quiet and always atmospheric. The soundtrack to tectonic plates shifting."
£16.41   Used & New from: £4.98
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

The Beyond
4.  The Beyond by Cult of Luna
The list author says:
  "More doom-metal than post rock, admittedly, but this release shares with Isis and Pelican the huge guitar sound and massive buildups, mixing them with cold screams and bleak soundscapes. A triumph."
£9.99   Used & New from: £2.57
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Rock Action
5.  Rock Action by Mogwai
The list author says:
  "A CD that grows on you; Mogwai's quietest yet, but still packs a hefty emotional punch, especially in tracks like the enchanting 'Dial: Revenge', sung in Welsh by SFA singer Gruff Rhys."
£7.72   Used & New from: £1.49
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
6.  Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun by Sigur Růs
The list author says:
  "Quiet and moving Icelandic post-rock. For those times when you just want to lie and think."
£9.99   Used & New from: £2.49
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews)

Happy Songs For Happy People
7.  Happy Songs For Happy People by Mogwai
The list author says:
  "Yet more glorious goodness from Mogwai, this a mix of the heaviness of Young Team with the subtlety of Rock Action; particularly notable in the superb 'Ratts of the Capital'"
£8.48   Used & New from: £2.82
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Sleep And Release
8.  Sleep And Release by Aereogramme
The list author says:
  "A truly eclectic album of superb contrasts, mixing post rock expansiveness with vicious screams and gentle melodies. Once again, the Scots come out on top."
£5.55   Used & New from: £2.81
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

F# A# Oo
9.  F# A# Oo by Godspeed You! Black Emperor
The list author says:
  "Fascinating full length from the 'rock orchestra' that makes up GYBE, an amazing album of 15+ minute instrumentals."
£14.18   Used & New from: £5.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Celestial
10.  Celestial by Isis (Rock)
The list author says:
  "Not as good as their latest opus Oceanic, this merely hints at the sounds to come yet, along with it's companion EP 'Sgnl 05' this raised the bar for heavy music."
Used & New from: £17.95
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place
11.  The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place by Explosions in the Sky
The list author says:
  "Superb quiet instrumentals, the soundtrack to summer evenings and sunsets."
£9.96   Used & New from: £4.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

Rounds
12.  Rounds by Four Tet
The list author says:
  "Radiohead personally recommended Four Tet; with good reason, since their blend of skittering electronica, folk and post rock is intriguing and enjoyable."
£11.39   Used & New from: £1.16
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)
