4 stars Godspeed are one of those refreshingly different bands, impossible to categorise and once heard, impossible to ignore - they are a very worthy addition to this archive.

'Raise Your Skinny Fists.....' could be said to define true 'progressive' rock - highly textured sonic soundscapes, which although convoluted, occasionally repetitive, and with a tendency to meander occasionally, is never boring.

Think Brian Eno with an edge.

Think Robert Fripp with classical tendencies.

Think of a combination of the above spiced with The Enid's compositional flair.

Then ignore all of the above and just listen - an hour and a half will just slip by un-noticed, you will not be left humming any melodies, as there are actually very few, you will not have inspirational lyrics to quote to your friends, as the album is completely instrumental, you will not actually know why you like the album, but I almost guarantee you will.

I don't even know why I'm giving this album 4 stars, other than the fact that "Excellent addition to any prog rock collection" perfectly summarises this album.

Hope this helps...........
