pterv2112 A truly monumental record unlike anything ever made before. The finest post rock has to offer. Not much else to say: excellent in every way possible.

Noli Beautiful, melodic, atmospherically perfected rock music. The melodies are always pleasant. It's insane how Drugs In Tokyo and Dead Flag Blues Outro are on the same track. Section placements don't feel out of place, from an apocalyptic, lo-fi Drugs In Tokyo which sounds like someone trying to play music while the rest of the world is crumbling apart, to the happiest, most blissful, nostalgic melody. Kicking Horse On Brokenhill sounds very hopeful and happy/sad. String Loop, best ambient ever.

Looking for this album

dyffryn This is one of the most important albums in my life. Godspeed manages to capture the feeling of what I imagine as an apocalypse.The tone manages to stay beautiful as the instruments spiral up and down, orderly in their chaos.

I was always curious about the vinyl release of this album. Now that I finally own a copy, even though it is shorter, it still managed to be the definitive one, ending beautifully on its infinity groove.

I opened my wallet and it was full of blood.I used some to buy this.
