Most satisfaying of them all! Simply the best.
Aren't they just amazing?
No one can create an epic as perfect as Godspeed can even once. And Godspeed has created countless songs that fully embody the word "epic"
The ultimate post-rock pioneers.11 Comments
This is the band that made me fall in love with post rock. Their songs your hand in mine, the only moment we were alone, six days at the bottom of the ocean and so many more just take you away from this planet!
They are pretty bland and dull except The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place and Those Who Tell the Truth
Every time I'm having a bad day, I'm listening to them. Not always boost my mood but always make day more bearable.
Your Hand in Mine is my favorite track so naturally they are my favourite band.3 Comments
Post rock is very loosely defined. So it really depends on what resonate with people, to me as much as I like God Speed for its atmospheric sound and Explosion in the sky for its mesmerising guitar arrangement, I have to say that Sigur Ros, to me, encapsulate all the Essence of post rock - atmosphere, mesmerising composition (without too repeatitive), some hint of rock arrangement (otherwise post rock will sound like new age), and a good vocal that can bring you to another realm.
Very atmospheric band with vocalist who has voice of angel.
They have written some brilliant compositions like Olsen Olsen, Untitled 3. There best album is (). In my point of view, Sigur Ros deserve 2nd place. On the first place I will vote for God is an astronaut!
Untitled 8 is insanely brilliant mix of emotions9 Comments
No one can compete with the introvertians like Mogwai
Glasgow Mega-Snake. An astounding post-rock piece. Give Mr. Beast a listen, you won't regret it.
Still producing great music...
Ep+6 makes me depressive - Naonao2 Comments
I like the aggressiveness!
'All is violent, All is Bright' is probably the best all-pervasive soul-stirring piece of music you will ever get, those entire set of 52:09 timespace of serenity.10 Comments
Spiderland is very sex I give 10/10 very cool
To call Slint a post-rock band seems well-accepted but it’s also odd. There are other labels that fit far better - experimental rock, post-hardcore, noise-rock and more. Talk Talk are the real progenitors of post-rock.
Note: Without Slint, none of these other bands on this list would exist. I would definitely go as far as calling them the Beatles of Post Rock. - InsertNameHere
Just love this band3 Comments
One of the best! Listen to songs like Djed, Seneca and TNT and you'll know what I mean - RandomPerson1234
The best band ever they really know how to play their emotions
Mono is simply amazing.
One brilliant band.
It touches you.6 Comments
They have yet to release a bad album. I like Mogwai's early stuff, and EITS's albums 90% of the time are good, sam can be said for GYBE and Russian Circles and so on, but what makes This Will Destroy you different is all their albums are outstanding. Sure, some songs like Mother Opiate aren't the best, every other song on Another Language is A+ grade. No joke. - notbirdlandstew
This band is incredible. Honestly if you haven't listened to Young Mountain or their self-titled album, you're missing out. This deserves to be up in the top three on the list.
A Three-Legged Workhorse and The Mighty Rio Grande were the first songs I heard from this group. Still my two favorites. Excellent band.
My first Post-Rock band... I fell in love from the first second...1 Comment
Do not think just listen up!
When you hear You Are The Conductor, Tertia, The Four Trees, you just get the feels of the band. My favorite one is "Loft" goes strong at the beginning the gets little quiet with a few guitar notes and then the EXPLOSION man, damn. Such a Great Band.
With their latest release, Caspian for me have captured something truly special. Post-rock is about the evolution of rock into ever-interesting forms, and while better known bands exist in their admittedly vast bubbles, Caspian exist in several, turning country, electonic and progressive elements into a stirring concoction of post-rock excellence!
I could listen to Sycamore all day, and it would still give me goosebumps. Phenomenal band.
My favourite post-rock band! From whispers to all-out wall of noise, their music will never fail to make you feel as if you were on a rollercoaster of emotion.1 Comment
10/10 everything they do
ITTCT continues to get better and better. Saw them in concert and they were great!
Perfect name, amazing music.
Gotta love these tremolos4 Comments
They created the genre along with Slint, of course they should be in the top ten!
Only 15 guys? Really? Laughing Stock is one of the greatest releases of all time.
Post-rock wouldn't be a thing without these guys.
The first post rock albums were Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock - that speaks for someting.
Wild Light is a masterpiece.
Brilliant great emotional band!
I felt in Love with their first track Dust And Blast on The Enjoy Eternal Bliss LP, this is an emotinal Masterpiece, I can't wait for their next Album in 2016.
Maybeshewill - To The Skies From A Hillside and Maybeshewill - Farewell Sarajevo. Listen to these two and you will vote for it until you make it number 1 in this list. No clue how is this band this much down on the list.
Greatly underrated but you won't regret it! "He films the Clouds Part 2" is simply amazing!
To the skies from a hillside is amazing!
Michael Gira 's vocals and guitar skills are a missing peice in this universe
Swans isn't really post rock except for their 2 latest albums, The Seer and To Be Kind. - SammySpore
Indicative of the kind of listless fluff that post-rock has come to be today. There is neither substance nor much style.
I was inttroduced to post rock after listening to their track Always wishing you were somewhere else, which to date is my favorite track. Each of their track remind me of some important moments of my life.
If they played this music at your funeral there wouldn't be a dry eye in the church
The most beautiful post rock band! To dream and imagine heaven...1 Comment
Awesome Aussie post Rock and Ricky gervais is a fan
I dare ANYONE to listen to Departure Songs and then tell me that it's not one of the best, most powerful, emotionally driven albums ever.
Departure Songs... just hear that album
The way home is my favorite song ever from sleep dealer!
Sleep dealer is not very famous artist. one man band Sleep dealer has many great compositions. My favorite album is Imminence.
They are AMAZING!
Nothing more beautiful than this very band. One musical journey indeed. :')
There is nothing more beautiful than this very thing. Surreal music :')
The most underrated bands of recent times.
Amazing sound, they started my post rock addiction. Very underrated
Amazing band, Solace is definitely one of my favorite post-rock albums.
This band is simply amazing
Great soundscapes very cinematic-like music!
This band deserve to be in top 10, has a lot of masterpieces!
This is such a great band! (Its only one guy doing it all actually) But the sounds he makes are just inspiring.
Such a great band.
These long-time veterans of the scene are my personal favorite! Check out the song March to the S ea. They put on a great live show!
A band from Dallas that combines ambience with doom in an atmospheric experience.
Unborn is a great EP!
The true first post rock album. Breaking down barriers that no one knew existed
Talk Talk may have laid the template for post-rock, but the genre crystallised on Bark Psychosis’ 1994 album “Hex.” Truly breathtaking and utterly beautiful, it is a milestone in the genre, more important than the earlier Spiderland (which has little bearing on post-rock), and second only to Talk Talk’s Laughing Stock. A masterpiece. See “Fingerspit,” “A Street Scene,” and “Pendulum Man.”
Lullaby was quite good, although low falls under slowcore, but still it has elements of post rock
Amazing rhythms that will make you dance through the song.
Powerfully and emtionally Tracks, Their first Self-Titled Debut Album is really a Bomb! Check out "Set Guitars to kill"
No Words. Just Amazing
Super awesome tunes, especially Start Stop Worrying
