Slint is awesome. I'd say Spiderland is where post-rock as we know it today all started.

Thats a challenge, find a post rock album that was released earlier than 1991.

Well, Bark Psychosis' debut EP All Different Things was released in 1989 and already had post-rock stylings. Also, Talk Talk's Spirit Of Eden from 1988.

Presently enjoying the German band Long Distance Calling and their heavy guitar driven experimental, largely instrumental rock

I'm not entirely convinced about Talk Talk being post-rock though. I'm probably in the minority on this, but... yeah.

If anything I say the first true post rock album was Public Image Ltd and First Issue/Public Image from 1978. It crossed genres, was more of a musical diversion from rock than punk ever was and it was very experimental.

I like Talk Talk, but that is NOT post-rock.  Talk Talk was 80's new wave.  Sure, it was the less poppy side of new wave, but it's still 80's new wave.  It's no more post rock that early Depeche Mode was.

Trying to restrict post-The Colour of Spring Talk Talk to just 1 genre is futile.

I agree Talk Talk are not post rock, but I see where they can fit into the development of the genre. An example would be David Sylvian of the band Japan who has, as a solo artist produced some beautifully experimental and progressive jazz fusion/rock/pop. Later Talk Talk albums, of which I have enjoyed all, also became more experimental and fit into the same sort of mix of styles.
Post rock is where instrumentation has developed beyond the standard and become more experimental. It itself is a sub genre of progressive rock. So maybe the likes of Talk Talk and David Sylvian have become post pop. I referenced PIL above and they are post punk. It is the taking of a traditional genre and developing it that makes the sound 'post'. Talk Talk and PIL pre-date the post rock movement

I have the David Sylvian - Robert Fripp record, which is pretty cool.  Kinda prog-fusion.
