Unclassics 32: Godspeed You Black Emperor! - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven (2000, Kranky)

genre: post-rock

OK, I know: this album is hardly UNCLASSIC as it is pure CLASSIC acknowledeged by anyone from Wire and Pitchfork to your educated friends (providing they live in a civilized world, of course). After 10 years of tedious bullshit post-rock by bands like Pelican or 65daysofstatic, it is easy to forget how revolutionary GYBE sounded back in 00. Long pieces or movements never structured like traditional guitar rock with elements borrowed from classical music and film scores, their music unfolded like a novel, but it needed repetitive listen to grasp all the small nuances. This was new rock that threatened the old rock, but then hundreds of epigons chose to repeat the method over and over and spoiled all the fun. OK, there was never much fun in post-rock, but still...
