Let me first begin by saying how profoundly honored I am to be able to review one of Post-Rock's towering thunders' most wicked works. Ireland's God Is An Astronaut, prior to the release of their 2010 full-length, Age Of The Fifth Sun, have already encroached on perfection's silken fleece and spellbound thousands of eardrums around the globe with their exalted 2005 All Is Violent, All Is Bright album. Don't hold your breath for this one, you might get disappointed.

This is an album that is as awesomely relaxing as it is uplifting. Perfectly suited for a non-metal coffee break!

I've heard really good things about these guys, but forgot about them until I saw Thryce's rec. And I do love me some instrumental albums.

As far as instrumental music goes, GIAA is about as good as it gets. Nice pick Thryce.

It may sound funny but I'm checking it out just because you said you're doing it. XD The thing is, this stuff indeed seems good.

Ah, I dig this album a bunch. Hoping people get Irepress onto the site (I made a suggestion for them), they're pretty similar.
