    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.

    Not for someone who is big into their lyrics :-) This is a good instrumental album. They wear their influences on their sleeves. Any instrumental rock bands are always going to be compared to MogwaiElements of Sigure Ros going on Expand
