That is not the case and I will try to listen to more albums, but more variation and less "boring" aspects are needed. I enjoy my slo-jams but, c'mon amp... read more

Description: Canada's Godspeed You Black Emperor raise the ante on their already ambitious orchestral rock by releasing a double CD of material as their second full-length album.
