it is a weird genre in that the big hitters are the best of the bunch, normally the more obscure you go the more interesting a genre gets but with post rock there are like 3 strands pretty well done by the main groups

The earliest tranche of post-rock bands were the best and most interesting IMO. Starting at Talk Talk, Bark Psychosis, Disco Inferno, Slint, Seefeel, Labradford and stretching to Godspeed and Mogwai.

Then Explosions in the Sky blew up and ruined it for everyone.
