The Truth
4 stars Whereas I kinda sorta agree with fellow reviewer Clemo of Nazareth, I feel Efrim Menuck is a vital part of Godspeed You! Black Emperor but not what makes them who they are. Indeed, with this record, you see where they get those moments of electronic and some bleak atmospherics with this double album.

Now, while some may find two discs of electronic-y post-rock too much, I definitely am a fan and it captivates me through both discs. It switches genres fairly randomly which I think keeps the listener on their toes, from emotional post-rock moments, to bleak atmospherics, to jazz-rock-ish jams, the record is pretty amazing.

It's only flaws are the few moments it gets too repetitive and that is not often. Much of the time it seems this is the post-rock that would appeal to prog fans the most, complicated and varied.

Album cover is excellent and the song titles are creative as well. Put with some great music, what's there not to like?

4 stars for being pretty dang awesome.
