It's an amazingly atmospheric album.

I really love this album, although For Dinner kinda bores me. But the rest is so good I'd still give it 5/5. I love the way the vocal can alterate from like quiet hushed spoken word to frantic shouting. I need to hear Tweez soon!
Woah, how about I just get you to write my posts for me, thats pretty much exactly my thoughts on the album too, especially what you said about GMC, thats what did it for me too

The other thing I really enjoyed was the spoken lyrics. It's not something you hear often but it's so fitting.

If anyone has the other albums, I think theres 2 others? I'd be dead keen to download them.

Tweez'll probably let you down after Spiderland, but I'll upload it if I get a chance.

*checks out Tortoise*

has anyone heard Squirrel Bait? They were a sorta post-hardcore band, the original band of 3 Slint members. Pretty good if youre into that stuff.

Squirrel Bait are pretty good, not as good as I had hoped, but decent.

Apologies for the mega-bump, but I'd like to reiterate the essential nature of this album for any rock fan.

And also to thank cardboard adolescent for the link to that live set.
