A Silver Mt. Zion - Born Into Trouble As The Sparks Fly Upward
post-Godspeed members (though it was actually released before the band went on hiatus) making more post-rock. like all Godspeed related releases, it is dark and depressing music, though not quite as ambient. unlike their later albums, Efrim's vocals aren't overbearing and are subdued, so they don't get grating and instead add to the music wonderfully, especially on the closing track, The Triumph of Our Tired Eyes.
