5 stars Well I'm going to explain why this album deserves to be considered as a masterpiece, five arguments for five stars, (one spot each star), so let's begin shall we?

-Explosions In The Sky sounds more professional than ever in "All of a Sudden..." their music evolved marvelously and became incredibly complex, multi-faceted and really intricate. The whole new album sounds exactly like the tag...NEW.

-This album shows a different (fresher) sound of the band. It's almost dark in a way (more o less what Sigur Rós did in their second album) they used to be very..well "happy"...and now they shaped their sound in a more mature way, darker, heavier and just better.

-The album comes wrapped in with the most intense structures I've ever heard in post-rock history, it's really something quite extreme what these guys carved in the shape of strings and drums.

-musically, this is perfect, their execution is flawless and it's everything you can hope for in a post-rock band, it's more digestible than Godspeed You Black Emperor but not as easy as Sigur Rós, they have a great sense of music as they exploit their songwriting perfectly to create different atmospheres with their instruments, you'll then have catchy music with dark atmospheres and spiritual execution. so as you can see, the songwriting is PERFECT! you'll be able to hear this lbum over and over again without getting tired of it.

-"All Of a Sudden...! is their most solid work to date, the values this album has are almost infinite, every song is way better than the previous one, and obviously every song is better than anything they've done before...they used to be good, now they are more than great.

-Bonus star: the remixes of the limited edition are marvelous, the one from Jesu is the best thing in that bonus disc, don't worry if you don't get that bonus, the EITS album per-se is perfect enough.

-second bonus star: production-wise, this album is clean as water, loud as war and clear as a new mirror, just amazing.

so, masterpiece, it's essential for everyone in my opinion.
