4 stars So this isn't exactly what I would call post-rock, it is kind of ambient music, it is very minimalistic, with very little musicianship and rather like a soundtrack for a movie. It is beautiful though, they create really incredible soundscapes and the feeling you get while listening to the album is very much like the picture in the cover art.

"The Dead Flag Blues" starts with an eerie monologue, very intense and profound, it has a great ambient and its very moody, it's sublime. "East Hastings" is the one which appeals the least to me, well, when I'm listening to this I am not so paying much attention to the music but rather just letting myself go without really focusing, this song is great but it is not so creative in my opinion. Finally, the 29 minute track "Providence", and this, this is something else! This song is absolutely great and it's the main reason to listen to this album, it contains wonderful vocals along with soft post-rockish guitar and it's never really exhausting, well the minutes of silence aren't really awesome, but if you're in the mood they will go really fine, by the end you have a sort of a cliché in post-rock, the explosion, and to be fair, it could be better, it sounds kinda low and raw, if this was successfully made it would made this track perfect.

Overall this is one great album to relax and immerse yourself in the night, really beautiful music and moving soundscapes. Stunning.
