This album is amazing -- and I say that having never enjoyed this band's previous output AND having never been a huge fan of instrumental music.
what kind of instrumental music have you listened to? mind if i give you a few recs?

Honestly, not a lot -- a little Explosions, a little Emancipator, and that's mostly it. I think Young and Courageous might be my gateway album into the genre. Some recs would be awesome!
i feel like you would really be into russian circles if you like this, all their albums are great. also check out: caspian, godspeed you! black emperor, and 65daysofstatic. those four are probably my favorite instrumental groups (along with tides of man now)

Check out the new Caspian album "Waking Season"

Probably the best post-rock album I've heard in a very long time.

Also, when I first started getting into the genre, Gifts From Enola's "From Fathoms" really got me into it.
gifts from enola are great too, dunno how i forgot them. super underrated band

why did you give the vocals 8.75 for an instrumental album?
i wasnt thinking and the individual categories dont mean anything anymore

I could def fall asleep to this, and I say that in the best way possibly. This stuff is really ambient and soothing.
yeah a lot of my favorite albums ever are staples on my sleep playlist. not an insult at all for music to be relaxing and soothing, which this definitely is
