DELAY IS WRONG, YOU THINK YOU SOUND LIKE GODSPEED, YOU ACTUALLY SOUND LIKE U2. This is a message to every band ever.

Delay is actually a nice effect because it is triggered by your playing. I prefer a nice short analog delay to vibe, chorus, etc, because it warms up the guitar sound and is much more musical to my ears.

The problem with a lot of post-rock bands is that they are "post-rock" and there is no satisfying rock out moment like in an SY song, or a Pavement song. That is what I personally live for.

Guitar effects are a matter of balance. Yeah delay sounds cool, and so do modulation effects- but you can't let them get in your way of rocking the fuck out. Not that they can't help you-my Little Big Muff plus my playing plus my Arion SAD-3(which does a very short delay, 200 ms I believe) sounds huge and really roars, and inspires me to rock out more.

Although you raise a point. I keep looking at the Boss DD-20 and thinking- "I could get rid of my PB+J, it would be great, I could do sound on sound, modulated delay, warp, and twist, simulated tape and analog, tap tempo, a bunch of different stuff." But I only use long delay on my PB+J for one song, I usually use it's short delay setting when I can't quite get enough from the SAD-3. And the PB+J being digital doesn't have those cool overtones that analog seems to have. So why would I really need to have a big expensive cool digital delay when I probably wouldn't use it to the max of its capabilities?" Although I'd probably use them more than I think.
