hey, not everyone loves listening to eight minutes of silence followed by a single violin note, okay? so, for those people, GYBE sucks (hint: i am one of those people).


A Silver Mt. Zion however...well, that one i just don't get. Horses In The Sky is, like, one of the best things ever, man.

i can understand why one would dislike godspeed, but to say they flat out suck? i think that is pretty much an incorrect statement.

also capsian i would have thought you would be one of the last people to trash on godspeed. like, don't you dig ambient drone shit? post rock really isn't that far removed (basically i just want your reasoning, thats all.)

if you read carefully, you'll notice that i said they suck "for those people" because obviously there's no accounting for taste and some people are into that kind of thing. personally, i'm not.

Come on you people Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada is unbelievable and it's not even the best they've done.  I really have trouble understanding how someone can enjoy things that are generally referred to as "post-rock" and not enjoy 40% of GYBE's music at the very least.

Is it possible for one post to undo all the Godspeed recommendations? Because they are seriously bad. Also all GYBE side projects suck (glaring at you, ASMZ). Also1! Yndi Halda are shit but I don't know if anyone's rec-d them yet. Just cancelling them out in case someone has.
Your opinion is objectively wrong.

Hmm, I wouldn't consider a lot of those to be post-rock. That's extending the genre a bit too much. Although the name itself conveys a range of meanings, I think the understood implication, at least from what I've seen, is that bands like MONO, Explosions in the Sky and so on are post-rock while Eluvium, Hammock, Stars of the Lid ect. are ambient, The Album Leaf/Mum have a sort of IDM/ambient sound and so on. Those are a lot of good, less conventional bands you've listed but I don't think they're post-rock.
Especially not BMSR. That one is off the mark to be sure.

i sort of see what you guys mean, some of those are much more ambient or simply too electronica based to be considered postrock. i think those artists have stemmed from a similar direction though so the music is in the post-rocky spectrum.

i WILL argue that Hammock is pure post-rock. theyve got songs with just as much drumming or lyrics as the other major players in this thread.
