DUDES, no joke, this album is a goddamn masterpiece...and I only reserve that for a handful of them. I haven't been this moved by an album since Takk... came out.

"Don't Think Of Collapse"...<3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have one of their albums...not sure if it's this one but I always thought it was kind of boring.

Yeah, this album definitely requires some patience to listen to...but only because it's very soft at times. The songs don't really stop moving. And god damn are there some juicy rewards if your ears keep their attention.

I dunno man...I hate to just call it post-rock because it's not fair to them and I'm fucking tired of using that genre to explain bands haha, and because they actually write songs with structure as opposed to a single giant crescendo built on the same progression, and the vocals are a huge part of the sound (there are tons of eloquent harmonies too)...I'm never good at explaining what a band sounds like haha. The drumming and basslines throughout the album are absolutely phenomenal and nothing is overdone.

Subject & Matter, Costa Del Sol and Don't Think Of Collapse are my favorite tracks.

I'm liking this a fair amount, though I think the vocals are a little weak.

It amazing ain't it? Every instrument is written/performed flawlessly...probably my favorite basslines ever.

The first track on this album is probably the best song ever written.

This really is one of the best albums ever made...it's hard to even think of moments that stick out because every second is perfect. So bummed I didn't know about them until after they broke up.
