Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is the debut album of Explosions in the Sky, and I think the lack of experience does show, as does the fact that it took two days to record. While there are many good ideas, the album does sometimes seem to lack a good sense of flow, and the build ups so important to post rock often feel awkward because of this. Musically, the album has much in common with other bands of the post rock movement. It tends to be slow and mellow, although I find EITS a bit more uplifting than their counterparts in bands such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor. I'm not an expert on the subject, but that is my opinion. I'd have to say my favourite song here is Remember Me as a Time of Day and Snow and Lights and Magic Hours are quite good as well. There's nothing overly original or brilliant here, so even though I don't have any of their other albums I would recommend newcomers to start with The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place or All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone based on the samples offered on this site.
