2 stars Wow. None of EITS albums reached over 4-star level. I can see why.

Despite all those euphoric reviews and high ratings, I'll be with my old opinion. EITS simply didn't click on me, as well as MOGWAI and SIGUR ROS. I see no PROGression really. Same old chords, same old tremolos, same old melodies, same old "marchy" drumming in climaxes...It's funny, but there are bands that manage to create a wonderful stuff out of guitar-driven Post-Rock cliches (just to mention MONO). EITS is not that kind of band I think. It's seriously overrated band ;) Some moments are utterly dull and boring. I'd never recommend this to a Post-Rock newbie (take GYBE, TORTOISE, TALK TALK, anything instead!). 2.333 stars
