5 stars This is just another piece of incredible music from a quite unique band, with a very "steady" discography. By steady I mean that you won't find any poor releases, no matter wich one you're buying. The five themes of Yanqui U.X.O are a very slow and tense progression, from a very peacefull (yet disturbing) beginning, to the loudest, more intense tracks of the end. Innovation?... I try not to use that word so much. But the music of this band clearly deserves it. Pure instrumental experimentation; with no abuse of their skills, and a lot of thoughts behind any of the notes and noises used to create that grey - mellow - red - desperate atmosphere. Now, in terms of "musicscape", the greatest achievment of every GYBE album is, off course, that sense of "political" comment, wich I don't know where exactly is placed in the music (instrumental all the time), but seems to be perceived by every listener. GODSPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR! is, certainly, one of a kind, and every of their album must be present on every prog music colection.
