3 stars It's hard to find OST's made by underground bands... or bands that appears on PA. TAngerine Dream and Popol Vuh could be the exceptions. Well, EITS made most of the songs of Friday Night Lights, a very interesting movie.

Now, when I saw the movie I didn't know who are EITS even when the musci catched me inmmediatly. Months later I get the album and my first impression wasn't wrong. Even when isn't the best album made by EITS every song is very ambiental and floating, specially the highlights From West Texas, Our Last Days as Children, Home, The Sky Above The Field Below and A Slow Dance. And if you add the collaboration of the legendary Daniel Lanois and David Thorn you have an album very solid and overall, full of an strange sense of sadness.

I insist isn't not the bes album of EITS but sounds really great. Even I recommend you to see the movie before listen the album. You will find more reasons to enjoy it...

3 stars 3.5 stars really !

I am not sure why this album has such a low rating. It is similar in style to TEINACDP except for this one is a lot mellower. There's not any biting guitar on this realease. It has a hypnotic feel to it. I would never have expected to find a song by Bad Company on a post-rock album, but 'Seagull' manages to sound like a pretty kool regular Bad Company song as well as fit in rather nicely with the rest of the album. This album is recommended to fans of EITS that don't mind getting a little mellow every once in a while.
