The Post-Rock All Stars

Since sputnik is pretty obsessed with post-rock, I thought I'd throw in my rown "all star" list of rrthe five "essential" albums for laymen and fans alike. Especially check out the comments for rsome great recommendations.
1God Is An Astronaut
God Is An Astronaut


This is the album that got me into post-rock and I imagined it could have a similar quality to other people. Highly inoffensive album. I would be seriously surprised if someone could actually hate on this. Echoes is a highlight.
2Cloudkicker
Let Yourself Be Huge


I had to include Cloudkicker in this list, not just because his music is extremely impressive considering he's just one dude in his home studio, but also because he gives it all away for free. Let Yourself Be Huge is one of post-rocks more hidden gems, embrace it. Explore, be curious is especially good.
3Maybeshewill
Not for Want of Trying


God damn it was hard to pick this one. All of Maybeshewill's releases are solid, but this one felt the most complete to me. He Films the Clouds Pt. 2 will likely make you fall in love.
4Mogwai
My Father My King


Probably the most underrated piece of music made by the post-rock superstars Mogwai. At parts, not an easy listen, but oh so rewarding.
5Godspeed You! Black Emperor
F#A# (Infinity)


I figured I'd get lynched if I didn't include something of GYBE, so here you have it. Now leave me the fuck alone. This is actually really good too.
