    i'm a pretty big fan, most of my favorites being from the constellation records camp (GYBE, a silver mt zion, do make say think, etc.).

    public image ltd are associated with being one of the early post-punk bands, not post-rock.
    you should check out the Moving Mountains song and see what you think :)

    also welcome are recommendations for the OP of Post Rock songs that you believe should be appreciated by the Community :)

    i've got that moving mountains album... it's got some pretty good tunes on it. :)


    you should post some early post-rock in here, such as slint, talk talk, and disco inferno...
    also, it would be a crime to not include some of the chicago bands like tortoise or gastr del sol.

    awesome!! :D i'm going to see the at the end of the month

    yeah, i'll add more later, if you want to recommend a talk talk song, because i haven't heard much by them, go for it.

    i've only recently been getting more and more into Post Rock and i think creating a thread like this will help me and others "appreciate" (i feel like i'm using that word too much) the genre more.

    Lesson #1: Never try to out-obscure afterstasis.

    i can help... i've been listening to this stuff for a little over a decade.

    as for talk talk i'd go for either ascension day or after the flood, though almost anything from the last two LP's would work beautifully.

    Just to say, Flowers of Romance by Public Image Ltd. is considered an early example of post-rock, just that album. Anyway, I like some post-rock like GY!BE, El Ten Eleven, The Letter E, FMTM, East North, and DMST.

    Does Rodan's Aviary count as "proto" post-rock as well?

    i get very few even slight post-rock vibes from "flowers of romance"...
    then again, maybe my hatred for the group is blinding me. i can't help but just think "pathetic attempt at avant-garde" anytime i see their name.

    gowie, i've never heard anyone else make the rodan/post-rock connection, but i agree they'd fit in to that group pretty well.

    I don't get it either, that's just what the expurts say. (spelling error intentional)

    i'll have to look into them, or you could post a video, but probably the former

    A few cool post-rock bands that you're missing on the list:

    Flying Saucer Attack - Flying Saucer Attack
    Talk Talk - Laughing Stock (absolutely essential)
    From Monument to Masses - On Little Known Frequencies
    Jakob - Solace
    Tortoise - TNT (last.fm didn't have it, but it's absolutely essential as well)
    Envy - Insomniac Doze (cool Japanese post-rock/screamo)
    Ahkmed - Distance (again, couldn't find a link, but it's not too hard to find a download)

    I suggest you give these bands a listen.

    Because you're ****ing annoying and don't know what you're talking about 9 times out of 10.

    I am fairly new to post-rock, but enjoying what I've discovered quite a bit. I'm really big on Godspeed and need to listen to some A Silver Mt. Zion, among others.

    I will say that Lift Your Tiny Fists Like Antennae to Heaven is, IMO, the most beautiful record I've ever heard. So I'd say I appreciate it.

    Now, you've said some stupid things in your short time on the forums. This takes the cake.

    Their last two albums, not their new wave stuff.

    You people never specified what "post" you were referring to and I would consider Elvis Costello as "post".

    That is what got me into post-rock, and I would still say it is my favorite. Storm is such a jaw dropping opening track. All the spoken parts in that album have an unexplainable chilling feel.
