Yanqui U.X.O. by Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Canada’s post-rock heroes Godspeed You! Black Emperor have long been Norman favourites so the chances are that you already know everything there is to know about them. For the uninitiated who find themselves here, Yanqui U.X.O. was their third album from 2002. It was recorded by Steve Albini, who has a habit of doing these things well. It was also the point when the band decided to move the exclamation mark from the end to the middle of their name. Classic stuff. Double LP on Constellation.

Godspeed are back with a brand new double album and compact disc. What do you think it's gonna be like then? Bet you could just guess what's it's gonna be like. More of the same I hear you cry??? Well yeh it is even with Albini at the mantle it doesn't sound drastically different. But it's most enjoyable. Usually I'd slag folks off for being one trick pony's cos you need more than that in this day and age to impress with the wealth of music being offered week after week. But they do it so well bless 'em. 3 tracks (spread out over 5 tracks on the CD which I don't understand at all) totalling 75 mins. Yeh it's got it's mellow drawn out boring bits but it's also got the big balls out pompous kick ass bits too. Yanqui U.X.O is a bit of a result really.....
