Yanqui U.X.O. (Explicit)
Released: Nov 2002
Produced by Steve Albini, Yanqui U.X.O. is the last album GYBE put out before going on indefinite hiatus. With five tracks minus the field recordings the band is known for, Yanqui U.X.O. is their most accessible record, and for that reason is loved by some, but hated by just as many. While the album may not be quite as dynamic as some of Godspeed's other material, the band's unmatched knack for spark-showering, atomic crescendos comes into play (that means 12 minutes into track 1). "Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls" is simply one of their finest songs.
