just the best post-rock album ever made. and they are the most underrated post-rock band around; to be honest it was only after seeing them at ATP and listening to them a lot since that i've realised just how incredible they are. i can't really say in words how special, but they just have something that is so far beyond 99% of musicians in this very loose genre. and this album must be their best; Authentic Celestial Music, Restless Waves...just indescribably beautiful and terribly sad and and and yeh. wow.
