the uploader mixed up the sides. side 2 is actually side 1, and vice versa, so the album does not actually end with pot banging. Albanian/whatever it is, however, does. btw, song is intense live.

Side 1 is actually side 2 of the main disc, and is track three, titled WE DRIFT LIKE WORRIED FIRE, and is a reworking of Gamelan.

Side 2 is actually side 1 of the main disc, and is track one, titled MLADIC, and is a reworking of Albanian.

Tracks 2 and 4 are on the 7", and are called THEIR HELICOPTERS' SING and STRUNG LIKE LIGHTS AT THEE PRINTEMPS ERABLE respectively.
We don't know yet which is which.

I think that, musically, this one is actually on the same level as LYSF, F#, and (slightly below) Slow Riot. The only things that keep the whole product a step below them for me is that there's not as much material and that the material isn't actually new.

GY!BE is one of those bands I need to be in the absolute zone and find the right time and place to
listen to. I'm going to wait until it's completely dark outside and lay down and listen to it, so I
get the full experience. It took me forever to get into Lift Yr Skinny Fists.... but now it's one of
my favorite albums :]

we drift like worried fire has a few elements that remind me of more recent post-rock bands. soaring, quickly-strummed guitar and steady, thumping drum beats. hard to explain what i mean. great song. this might be their most cohesive album. sounds like one big piece with one very distinct direction, rather than being divided into movements. less diverse than their earlier albums, for sure.

Same for me, GY!BE is either night music or cold, rainy, and windy day music, and it's way easier to replicate night over rain/wind. So turn off the lights, close the blinds, and listen to GY!BE, unless you're at work or school or something. Then just blast converge all you want.
