This review is from: He Has Left Us Alone But Shafts Of Light Sometimes Grace The Corner Of Our Rooms (Audio CD)
I stumbled across this whilst looking for some Godspeed You Black Emperor, and decided to have a listen...
At its most basic, it's some of the most gripping music you are ever likely to hear. There's an incredible amount of tension running throughout the CD, and the atmosphere, (although not the sound by any means), is comparable to recent Radiohead material. The sound ~is~ reminiscent of Godspeed, but it's far closer to Do make say think and, somewhat surprisingly, Sigur Ros.
Primarily acoustic, with stunning use of strings and pianos, I don't think you could possibly be genuinely disappointed with this. At worst, you'll find it interesting but slightly long-winded; at best, it will blow your mind.
