    Alright so, I maybe a few years out of date, but I've just discovered this... ...and my faith in music has been restored, (it's a biannual occurance) Praise Allah that there are people like this making music that manages to be heard.
    All you people in Toronto- I'm green to the core that a scene that spawned the constellation label evolved on your doorsteps.

    Yes, I really love this album too but in my opinion none of the other three Do Make Say Think albums come anywhere close to Goodbye Enemy Airship. For me its that they sort of combine the sound of more guitar heavy instrumental bands like Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor with more of a rhythmic focus of a band like Tortoise, having two drummers ala Tortoise and some nice simple bass playing as well. I remember seeing some pictures of them performing live and i think the bassist mostly used a 6 string and a fretless 5 string . Their use of horns adds a lot to the sound too.
    Their sound has been changing over the course of the last couple of albums, and I don't really care for the direction they've gone in. "& Yet & Yet" was still good but I thought the latest one "Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn" was pretty terrible.
    I don't know if you know but at least two and maybe more members of Do Make Say Think are in the band Broken Social Scene, who've put out some great stuff in the last few years, especially their album "You Forgot It In People". They don't really sound much like Do Make Say Think but are still pretty great.
