    A masterpiece that flows brilliantly. [#75, p.97]
  2. This is quite possibly Explosions in the Sky's finest moment. Buy this album now and be ready to have your life changed.
  3. The emotional outpouring on display dwarfs what most vocal "emo" bands do.
  4. Trouble is, save for the soft bits being softer and the hard bits being harder, it's practically a replica of its predecessors.
  5. Honestly, it's been worth the wait. [#16, p.91]
  6. Each winding soundscape sounds like it was made for those big budget nature documentaries with David Attenborough.
  7. Despite their reputation as torch-bearers of the new post-rock prog, it lacks the outrageousness of the ‘70s version of the genre and there’s an earnest sameness to these pieces that render much of it tedious beyond belief.

    Their best work - without a doubt among the best the genre has offered.

    Lost between giving this a 9 or 10, I went with 10 because of the addition of the remix CD, which is really good. Although this is EITS, the sound is a bit different from everything they have done until now, and it really grew on me over time. I think that a lot of reviewers probably based their reviews off of one listen, but this is one that you have to listen to 15 or 20 times before you really start to feel it. And it is an album of feeling, not one that you should sit back and analyze (like all of the jargon spouting hipsters). This is especially emphasized on the beautiful and haunting remixes of the album done by Jesu, Four Tet, and others. I think the band has really tightened and perfected their sound on this album, which is best appreciated without comparing it to their other albums. Expand

    Just like the waves of the Pacific crashing into the coatline of California, Explosion In the Sky's "All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone" is six tracks of delicate beauty which repeatedly crescendro into guitar might. Each song unfolds with specific, almost scientific, measurement giving the listener an exact taste of the emotion the electricity from their guitars emulate. Expand

    I agree this album is amazing. if you listen to the first song and how it explodes into a beautiful song into a galloping like fun jam. This band has so much talent that isnt relized by much people. this album is one of their best and shouldnt be rated low at all. Expand

    A pretty good album from one of my favorite bands of all time but definitely not my favorite. While I believe their new album shouldnt ever be named in the same sentence as the Earth Is Not A Dead Cold Place, I believe the opening track off the new album...The Birth and Death of a Day is probably one of the greatest composed songs of all time...Easily in my Top 10 Songs of all time.

    does no one realize that they are just recycling ideas from a band out of the early 80's... dif juz. take their early work, amplify it a bit and remove the soul and voila! you have EITS. Expand
