Agent K(ahunasan) I purchased this awhile back when it first came out on Itunes.
Post Rock was just starting to flourish back then.
I still find all of these compositions powerful and engaging.
Hadoken's intrumentation puts them in a very unique category of mostly instrumental bands.
This is the place to start for this will be hooked! Favorite track: Vesuvius.
