3 stars A darker, moody follow-up to their widely appreciated prior album, Explosions shows signs of increased creativity and subtlety in this beautiful-- if somewhat formulaic-- release.

The band sticks with what they know: slow builds, soaring melodies, delicate textures, and eighth notes (lots of them). "All of the Sudden" is undeniably elegant, and at times demonstrates the bands excellent sense of timbre and composition... but I find the very repetitive guitar to limit the palette of sounds at the bands disposal, making "All of the Sudden" an outstanding instrumental album only when the mood strikes me; however, when it does I admit that this music has the ability to lighten spirits and send tingles up spines.

Recommended for those interested in the band or seeking some classy instrumental music.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: NA Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
