So, /mu/. Explosions In The Sky is releasing a new album in March. Why haven't you pre-ordered your limited edition colored vinyl yet? Only 1000 to be made.
I generally don't consider music that lacks any creativity to make better than original works that change the genre. EITS are the former. I'd say bands like GYBE, Slint, Talk Talk, Swans, and even Bark Psychosis (who I don't even like that much) are part of the latter.
