First album in 10 years. It's pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty good. Pretty good.

I've tried many times to really get into this band, but it never clicks.

To be honest, I don't have the patience for 20+ minute songs. That being said, I DO enjoy some of their shorter ones. "Moya" is a great example. Fantastic and atmospheric piece of music.
 
Oh, and I generally love everything prog/post/epic long songs (Isis, Cult of Luna, Porcupine Tree, King Crimson and Opeth are all some of my all time favorite bands)...Godspeed's songs are just too fucking long, haha.

Oh it's a great album.
However the tracks are not completely and truly new, one of them, 'Mladik' used to have another name, 'Albanian' and was played quite a lot during their shows. HOWEVER, new studio quality records from GY!BE are appreciated.
