I'm a pretty big fan of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Set Fire To Flames (which has some members of Godspeed...), Mogwai, and Sigur Ros.

I'm also in a small post-rock band myself. We don't have any recordings yet, so don't ask me for them. My brother's in fairly big post-rock band in Duluth, Minnesota. If you feel like it, their myspace site is www.myspace.com/portraitofadrownedman

Man, I'd love to live in Montreal, with their thriving post-rock scene. There are so many Godspeed You! Black Emperor side-projects. It's some good stuff.

I don't listen to much, mainly just classic ones like Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky and From The Sky (They are on SD).

Oh good, i need some help here anyways:

I don't know anything about post-rock but never shy, I bought an explosions in the sky CD. I was going to buy the CD with the angle on the cover because the art was great, but apparently thats their "mediocre" album. So I was told to get some white one with writing all over it, but the clerk said it was their softer one, so I ended up buying "All of a sudden" and have yet to listen to it.

Long story short: Is "All of a Sudden" worth the listen, or should I have picked up something else?

Edit: I listened to esmerine on the back of Six's recommendation and having heard that I'm wondering what the qualifications were for Post-rock?

And do the two Buckethead gem's "Electric Tears" and "Colma" count as post-rock albums?

I think their great, try White Wash, Ghost (both from Colma) or "Sketches of Spain (for Miles)," or "Mantaray" (both from tears)

I like Earth Is Not etc, best. All of a Sudden is worth a listen but I would've picked up somethinhg else, however since you have it put it on.
