5 stars This Godspeed You Black Emperor side-project was meant to be a one-off - Efraim wanted to make a piece of music in memory of his beloved dog Wanda, who had died whilst he was away on tour with Godspeed, it developed into this album. As it was, the Silver Mt. Zion project would turn out in the coming years to greatly outstrip its parent band in terms of productivity.

Perhaps it's no surprise - the debut Silver Mt. Zion album is a post-rock classic which ranks above all but the very best Godspeed releases. Taking the same fragile found audio aesthetic at Godspeed and adding another layer of emotional rawness and tenderness - plus some very effective and haunting vocal performances - the band produce an album which sounds like it was recovered from the wreckage of a dead and burned-out planet. A haunting, stripped-down emotional trip, and a post-rock classic.
