From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I once read an interview with a few of the Explosion In the Sky members where they were asked if they would ever put vocals and/or lyrics to their music and their response was "We'll start putting words to our music when we run out of ideas for our music". And with this statement in mind, I have reason to believe that there is absolutely no reason for lyrics in music this good. If you look at each individual song as a short story, you see how they really took their time to create beutiful layers of guitar riffs with an extremely tight (as well as dynamic) rhythm section. You also see how their arrangement of each individual song on the album flows almost perfectly. This bands debut album truely tells a story unlike any album i've ever heard. Every night I listen to this album before I go to bed, I always feel like i'm wasting my stash because after i burn and turn on this cd, i always end up passing out cause it's so peaceful. (I feel as though it's a waste of money). But if your ever dry, pop this album on and lie in bed. You'll get a music high unlike any other. Not a classic of progressive music, but certainly a classic for music in general.
