residual A beautifully dissonant instrumental tale that gains a great deal from the listener having to interpret it themself. Sonically some of Godspeed’s best. 10/10 Favorite track: Rockets fall on Rocket Falls.

neu-mann Arguably the most accomplished statement yet made by this pioneering ensemble, with more attention devoted to the larger structure and internal flow of the music, allowing the players to stretch the limits of their enigmatic mini-symphonies to the breaking point. The results are stunning. Favorite track: Rockets fall on Rocket Falls.

about

U.X.O. is unexploded ordnance is landmines is cluster bombs. Yanqui is post-colonial imperialism is international police state is multinational corporate oligarchy. Godspeed You! Black Emperor is complicit is guilty is resisting. The new album is just raw, angry, dissonant, epic instrumental rock. Recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago and mixed by Howard Bilerman and Godspeed You! Black Emperor at the original Hotel2Tango in Montreal.

Stubborn tiny lights vs. clustering darkness forever ok?
