4 stars " Birth & Death Of The Day" starts this 2007 release off with distortion, maelstroms of stormy soundscapes before settling into some pleasant accoustically lead almost uplifting melodies. It really is an absolute gem of a song and is full of atmospheres." Welcome, Ghosts" is a true return to form from Explosions In The Sky and very pleasing on the ear. There is that continued air of drones about this album but is more positive and optimistic than their previous albums. Uplifting is a good adjective. " It's Natural To be Afraid" is another 13 minute drone of swirling sounds, judging by the title of the album and the name of this song, one would assume they are playing about confronting one's own lifetime's demise." Catastrophe and the Cure" really gets the guitars grinding with some excellent drum work. GSYBE similarities again. " So Long Lonesome" leaves you with a sense of relief. Let's face it the album makes for intense listening and is quite draining. But Post Rock/Math Rock can do that. This is their most uplifting album and for that I am going to plug four stars.
