It is. I came up with it while just mucking about with some easy chords, and I honestly wasn't even sure if I would use it at first. The first night I came up with the strings and some of the other earlier parts, and at first thought it was ok, but I listened back the next morning and thought it was great. Everything is actually the first take I think.

Do you feel having it develop further and for a longer period of time it would feel more complete? Or do you mean there should be more to what's already there, in terms of layers and so on?

No more layers just more continuation and expansion. Post Rock needs to take it's time. You listen to it, don't you think that's the best way forward?

Well, yes, I have to agree. When I originally had the idea for the track, it was suppsoed to be about 7 minutes or so. When I started to work on it though, I stumbled onto a short ending. I'll probably start working with it again to see what I can come up with. I've had a lot more post-rock ideas lately because I've been exposed to a lot of new material, so I think I could do some great things with it.

I think adding layers couldn't hurt. That's what I love about post rock, there's always so much going on, but at the same time, it never overwhelms you. Great great song though. Definite Sigur Ros feel to it, and that's always a good thing.
