 While I haven't yet heard this album, I think the author makes a number of unfair statements. For one thing, I don't think post-rock is generally hopeless. GY!BE's music, especially the last two tracks from "Lift Your Skinny Fists . . ." has always been pretty uplifting to me. I think there's a tendency to use the opening monologue from F#A# infinity as a lens through which to view their entire catalogue, which is unfair. I also disagree that post-rock all sounds the same. There are similar elements, but there are similar elements in all forms of music. If there weren't similarities, there would be no genre. The last point of contention I have is that Constellation is a one-trick pony. For several years now, Do Make Say Think have been the best band on the label, and probably on any label. Their past few records have been fantastic and highly regarded both by critics and fans.
