    Everything up through Tunnel Blanket. I've skimmed the newer ones, but I don't know, the long ambient passages just don't do anything for me.

    EITS is good--- I think they get too much of a hard time from the post-rock fans imo.

    I can get the TWDY feelings. I was sooo bored of tunnel blanket/another language but after a bit of time I like them a lot. Tunnel Blanket might be my favorite from them haha.

    TWDY's first two albums were very simular to etis's output, but they actually expanded and grew their sound as they progressed. Almost every etis song is the same boring climax/movie trailer post rock.

    I can agree with this:

    I don't find EITS that boring, though.

    I also don't listen to much after All of a sudden

    Please post all these opinions in the bad opinions thread. We should be celebrating post rock and sharing it with others. Not bringing it down.

    This just seems a bit much, to be honest.

    As opposed to what you are doing? It’s clearly negative opinions of bands. You can scream to your hearts content in there.

    I will agree that eits is baby’s first post rock, but I don’t think it means they’re bad. I do think teisacdp is honestly a masterpiece. Nothing else is near as good, but none is bad

    The two new albums - new others - might be worth your time. Imo they do well to blend the ambient stuff into more interesting heavier music. I don’t love tunnel blanket but I think the new others albums are rad

    Did you read what I wrote?

    I said I can see TWDY be a boring and also said Tunnel Blanket is my favorite record of them.

    I also said EITS gets too much negativity IMO

    At what point and I'm dragging these bands down? It's a discussion thread and all topics are open.

    I'll have to check it out.

    What's everyone's favorite release this year?

    One of my favorites of the year:

    Barrens: Penumbra

    It’s the perfect blend of heavy and ambient.

    Three piece from Sweden on Pelagic.

    My top 3:

    hubris. - Metempsychosis
    Absolutely epic guitar-centric crescendo-core that doesn't aimlessly meander. Equal parts heavy and ethereal (outros notwithstanding), with a light metal dusting and melodies as colourful as the album art driving each ~10 minute long track.


    Hope the flowers - Sonouros Faith PT.1
    Richly layered and a lot of orchestral instrumentation, with horns specifically being a primary feature of a number of tracks. Lush and beautiful, downright delicate in some places, yet sports its share of brooding, frenzied moments as well. Imagine an Ent from The Lord of the Rings but it's a cherry blossom tree - this is the musical equivalent of that.


    Driftless - The Greatest Need
    I trust we're all familiar with The American Dollar? The Greatest Need is what TAD would sound like if their trademark sweet, shimmering, sparkling keys+electronics were interspersed with gigantic, dense walls of guitars.

    That Hope the Flowers album is so good. My favorite this year was The Cataclysm by Coldbones.
