Relative to punk music, post-punk is less aggressive and more experimental. In fact, some of the most unique music of the time period, and still to this day, came from the period ranging from the late '70's through the early '80's.
I've come to realize that there weren't too many bands until the early '70's where it sounded like the band didn't know or care what else was going on in the musical world.
The mid-2000's supergroup do their best imitation of their post-punk and noise rock heroes.
The British experimental mathcore outfit returns with their fifth full-length effort, Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It; a grand display of pristine musicianship, intricate songwriting, and raw emotion.
