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)

ahem. from Wikipedia:

"Post-rock is a music genre characterized by non-traditional use of rock instruments and high musical density. Although firmly rooted in the indie scene, post-rock's style bears little resemblance musically to that of indie rock. However, as post-rock music is often recorded on independent labels, indie and post-rock often share the same level of obscurity."

"As mentioned above, the post-rock sound incorporates a wide variety of musical genres, such as ambient, jazz, electronica, experimental, and sometimes even rock. The post-rock approach to music, such as the emphasis on instrumental work and sonic texture, is similar to the earlier New Age movement, which came out of the modern folk tradition. Post-rock is characterized by repetition of musical motifs and subtle changes, with an extremely wide range of dynamics. Most often, post-rock songs are lengthy and instrumental, containing repetitive build-ups of timbre, dynamics and texture. Guitar timbres are usually smooth. 3rd bridge guitars like the Fender Jaguar and the Jazzmaster in combination with delay and reverb are popular equipment. Harmonically, there is an emphasis on consonance, though by no means is there a definitive rule of thumb."

for further information, consult Post-rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. i don't know why people can't run a simple search themselves...
