5 stars God is an astronaut is, for me, one of the most innovative and gifted bands. I don't know what it is exactly that make them stand out over the huge pile of generic, repetitive and boring post rock.

The album opens with Fragile, a beautiful song which draws you in completely with it's stunning atmosphere that builds up slowly and skilfully, until it blows up to a massive ending. I guess that right there is what makes GIaA so much better than other bands in this genre. The atmosphere, which is basically what a Post Rock song usually relies upon, is done here stunningly, and that's what makes the difference.

Anyway, the next song is named after the title of the album. Indeed a fine peace of music. Beautiful melody that's carried nicely throughout the track.

Other noted tracks on the album are: Forever Lost, sad and gloomy and very very touching. Again, the atmosphere and song structure are flawless. Remembrance day is another track that you should check out.

All in all GiaA is almost the only post rock band that i can listen to over and over again without getting bored. They just do it better then the rest of 'em.

Highly recommended!
