explosions in your spleen, implosions in your heart,
This review is from: Those Who Tell the Truth (Audio CD)
This album is for me (like their other albums) a lesson in simple yet massively effective post rock. I liked mogwai, then i found godspeed you and silver mt. zion. They are all still exceptionally good, but i like explosions more. This album shows a bit of rawness like the first, but is consummate in its ability to destruct your nerve endings with fierce crescendo's, or extrapolate your soul with vagrant, reverberating guitar. The songs are typically long (7-11 minutes) by post rock standards, but they pass quickly and it leaves you with an inert sense of longing that you can only satiate by...listening to it again.
