    Beautiful album, as always with this band. With the only disappointment coming from the third track sticking out like a sore and ugly thumb and the epic guitar battle in the last track not quite lasting as long as I'd like, I am still proud to call EITS my favorite band. Well done guys.

    Utterly breathtaking. Deep, layered, and gorgeous. Didn't think they would every top Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place. This one is in the running for sure.

    Great album, even third track. EITS do an incredible job of forging emotion, raw and brilliant. The third track, although really quite good and not a "sore thumb" (@musicmann11), does stick out and would almost be better suited for an experimental album rather than on an album full of the usual (although certainly evolved, this is not an insult) EITS sounds.

    Explosions In The Sky continue to deliver incredible impact from their instrumental offerings, with soaring guitar and thundering percussion forming the backbone for their unmistakable sound.
    This album reveals some subtle variations from previous releases, it's closest stablemate being "The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place".

    Another Explosions album to absorb and enjoy from start to finish.

    Wow, wow, wow. Explosions In The Sky are not for everyone, but if you love their thematic overtures and ambiguous songs, then Take Care, Take Care, Take Care will instantly become an instant favorite. Each song is compelling and noteworthy. Likewise, each is open to several interpretations and different atmospheres for listening.

    A great success on every level; this is their best album since The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place.
  2. They are still a force to be reckoned with and they still write some of the best and most beautiful instrumental music but without a small revolution in sound; their catalogue will (albeit, beautifully) end up blending together like one long song.

    Take Care, like all of the EITS albums, still has quite a lot going for it: its bombastic gestures are still appropriately dramatic, its production still crackles and shines exquisitely, its conventional undulations are still paced for maximum emotional effect. But there is no surprise or wonder to be found here, no chances or risks taken.
