Godspeed You! Black Emperor ∞ Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven



1. Storm
2. Static
3. Sleep
4. Antennas To Heaven

My favorite Godspeed You! Black Emperor album starting with the incredible opener, “Storm”, which easily fits into one of my most favorite tracks of all time. The beauty and scale the bands brings to the table on this proper album is absolutely unmatched and yet to be unrivaled by any followers of theirs in this genre. GY!BE are the kings of apocalyptic post-rock and it is shown in full force with this record. It feels like a more innocent and less corrupted version of f#a#∞, where that album was full of pain, this is full of hope. The title of the record alone presents this image of some sort of redemption. Again, there is the beautiful mixture of field recordings, guitars, orchestral, percussive and noise instruments to create a unique sound for this innovative and talented band.
