3 stars EITS' fourth album is a mixed bag. It lacks the consistancy of TEINACDP and the abraisiveness of TWTTTSDTWTTTSLF. However, this album includes rare flashes visceral genius and rare streaks of melodic sensability more prevalent on prior releases.

I saw this group last night at the Warsaw in Brooklyn, New York. The ferocity of their live shows does little to improve upon the aggressive, climactic nature evident in many of their albums. However, the show was excellent. The new album introduces the keyboard to their instrumental arsenal; it does elevate the music on their new album to greater degree. My favorite tracks on the album, easily, are: The Birth and Death of a Day," It's Natural to Be Afraid" and "Catastrophe and the Cure." Altogther,this album shows a band in transition and is roguhly a mutated hybrid of TWTTTSDTWTTTSLF and TEINACDP. 3.5 stars. Moreover, the length of the album, 45 minutes, for four years of waiting, is rather weak. I would have expected something more refined and consistent to reward nearly half a decade of patience. If more bands opt to hiatus like Tool, the modern music scene will become stagnant and unproductive. Hopefully, we will see EITS release another album or two in a couple years.

For post rock fans, this is advised. Those who enjoy Saxon Shore and Mountains would enjoy this release as well.
