4 stars This is a band that I discovered in 2009, though their last album is two years old. EITS is "Post Rock," a style of instrumental music using rock instruments to create compositions that are epic and full of texture, at times atmospheric, at other times loud and blasting.

EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY is very proggish in that it makes you wonder if this would have been the music that some classical composers would have created if they had an electric guitar, a bass and a drumkit.

Instrumental music doesn't get any better than this.

As Rolling Stone magazine reviewer David Fricke wrote, "In this band, a real singer would just get in the way?or get run over."
