So far (not having heard this release yet) every album after "All Is Violent, All Is Bright" have cranked up the yawn factor by x5 each release.

I hope this is different.

If it doesn't match up to All Is Violent I'm not sure I'll bother, because it'll just be the same thing but done slightly worse.

I remember a couple years ago there was a bit of bitching between them and whoever was running the
sputnik myspace when their last album came out. they didnt like the review...

That's actually sort of funny. God is An Astronaut/Sputnik feud. You have to be pretty miniscule to get pissed at a partially user
based website.

edit: Unless there's something else to it. From the way you described it, it sounds like they just got upset by a review written for
them.

It was actually guys from the band that got all shitty wasn't it? I can't remember who the reviewer was but they were like "YOU JUST DON'T GET OUR MUSIC". I've actually hated them a bit more since they were like that.

Good band, but listening to a full album of theirs seams harder than most post-rock.

Actually, this isn't too bad so far.

And lol at the feud. What douches.

Not bad, kind of a return to form. The guitar work on the title track is awesome, and a real step for them

All Is Violent is one of my favourite records ever. This worth picking up then?

Meh, I can't blame them. That review WAS kinda shit. BTW, i agree w/ BrahTheSunGod about the title track. Really nice riffs there. Definitely a standout track from the album.

"This worth picking up then?"

Yes, most definitely. Like I said, I wasn't expecting this, it's quite a step up actually.

Oh, and "Shining Through" is a virtually flawless track, esp. with this rerecording.

The first half of the album is boring, but it really picks up in the second. I just finished the title track, which was awesome.
