5 stars The album that got me in to post rock. At first when I first heard it I didn't like it at all. It really took me time to get in to this album. After a time of listen it I really felt like WOW! This is totally amazing. This album is a truly masterpiece in every sense of the word. The album in simple words its perfect. This is the first album I have ever heard of GYBE as well as for post rock. The album's atmosphere totally blows me away, from start to finish. With a variety of instrumentation using it to create a variety of rhytms and making this album a true essence of post rock. Sincerely I'm not a big fan of slow song intros but this band finds a way to make them real amazingly emotional and make the rest Parts of the song sound extremely amazing.

In overall the album itself (the song names) really describes the songs well. 09-15-00 intros are really amazing with a very emotional touch in it. This song is the most completed piece of music I have ever heard. It offers many different rhythms and yet they all fit the same page very well. Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls it's really breath taking. The song really offers a very explosive and evil mood just as its name implies. The song really captures the whole ambience of the album. As for Motherf**ker=Redeemer this the true masterpiece if the album just as Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls the name describes well the mood and rhythm of the song and overall it's the best of the album.

In my opinion the album it's truly a great masterpiece. I REALLY recommend this album if your really a die-hard post rock fan.OUTSTANDING!
