GY!BE / Explosions in the Sky

Part 1
Part 2



every time i hear myself say this, or watch myself type it, i can't help but cringe just a little bit. mainly because the average person automatically assumes you're a pretentious asshole that listens to garbage, which isn't usually the case.

the above two bands are/were basically responsible for starting the whole post-rock movement that's occurred over the last 10+ years... and they sound absolutely nothing alike. but even if you hate whatever it is that 'post-rock' encompasses, you should really make sure to own these two albums. definitely some of the best there are.

These are great albums, I would agree that they could be in the album of the decade discussion. So far we have, Illinoise, A sun that never sets and these two. What else?
