2 stars GYBE seems to be one of the most beloved bands in this site's post-rock corner, which is understandable- the music has an emotional, sprawling, epic feel. However, I am not as captured by this album as some of my fellow reviewers. Some parts of this album, like most of Sleep, are magical and inspiring. However, when I step back and look at the album, I feel like there isn't 80 minutes worth of truly worthy material here- there's just WAY too many quiet parts, drones, random samples, etc. for it's own good. As a musical product, there's just way too much stuff that shouldn't be there, and to these ears, instead of building tension or whatever others see, i just get bored. I guess the key word here would be over-developed. I think that two stars would be fitting, as it really is only for fans.
