Parts of this album remind me of the band Grails.

'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend! is another piece in what has become the most riveting discography to ever exist. Words cannot describe the feeling I get when I listen to Godspeed. Everything they do is so immense, so filled with passion and emotion. These people have tapped into a level of creativity that transcends what most people could even imagine. I started to understand this after seeing them live, everyone so focused so drawn in by the noises the others and they themself were creating on the stage. They rarely took their eyes off their instrument or each other, but when they did it was almost as if the heavens had opened up and the gods themselves were looking down on us, and they could tell we were as transfixed as they were. No band will ever come close to what Godspeed is to me, and I'm more than okay with that.

Come on, a 5 for this thing is silly. Two old songs (which are the best ones) and two filler drone tracks. Yeah, those two old tracks are fucking great but no way a 5.

Yeah, I definitely agree this is a solid 4 when ranking Godspeed's stuff.
I can't see someone giving LYSF or F#A# a 5, then giving this one a 5 as well.

It's better than Yanqui, but that's about it. Nowhere close to Slow Riot either.

was going to 5 based on the fact that it came out of fucking nowhere and is awesome but its just not on the level of F#A#infinity or lift your skinny fists

I honestly think discrediting two amazing songs because they have been played live before is silly.

Definitely agree with that, Keith. People shouldn't allow that to affect their rankings.

"I honestly think discrediting two amazing songs because they have been played live before is silly."

This so hard. I've heard the first track live before and live recordings of the other and both versions on here slightly differ and come across even more amazing here
