Explosions in the sky

Are better than Godspeed You Black Emperor.

Surely there are some other fans of this fine band? There are few girls who enjoy "climaxes" as good as theres.

Their name alone makes them a good band.

I was going to listen to their CD lst night...but instead went with Street Spirit (Fade Out) CD1 and CD2 (are you a Radiohead fan, zoorock girl?).

I saw them last winter...super nice guys too. I would suggest these guys to everyone (who likes that type of music - Mogwai and the like).

They opened up for "and you will know them...." for a while too. I would LOVE to see them again.

Austin, TX has a few good local bands!

Trail of dead are pretty cool too! Weren't they on Farmclub the same time U2 were back in 2001?

And yes, I really like Radiohead! OK Computer and Amnesiac (that's the right name right? not insomniac? )the most.

I understand. Post rock is not something one can consistantly be "into" for long periods of time.

Ok, I just finished their 'The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place' album for the first time. Absolutely breathtaking. The last song is an incredibly moving closer. The whole album is really one piece, I cant see myself ever being able to listen to these songs by themselves. Anyways, tickle me impressed.

both are great bands... with different styles, ok, both are post-rock bands, but have different sequences, Explosions are more based in drums, Goodspeed prefer progressive synthetized (and samples) sequences.. bah

anyway, I prefer Explosions in the Sky, I need an album by them

Yeah, it's all personal preference. I still prefer Mogwai out of all of them if you're talking about the whole instrumental thing. Regardless, they are awesome. Beautiful album.
