Editors’ Notes

Texas instrumentalists Explosions In the Sky make big, cinematic music with fairly basic instrumentation — mostly guitars and drums, a little bass — and their sixth studio effort, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, offers up a number of firsts for the quartet: a first official video (for the cosmic and beautiful opener, “Last Known Surroundings”), the first use of vocals (utilized as effects only), and the first appearance of electronic drums (used very sparingly). The band’s crescendo-heavy, dramatic v. pastoral post-rock is considered by many to be the reigning brand of the genre, with recent output by fellow post-rockers Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor! being both spotty and rare. Take Care may be the best EITS record since their first; they are meticulously fine-tuning the way their artful washes of sound are delivered, how their atmospheric collisions are painted. EITS maintain a hopeful, transportive tone, and while there is much to delve into here without trepidation, we point out the comparatively brief, faces-to-the-sky joy of “Trembling Hands” and the stellar, ten-minute stretch of bliss that is “Let Me Back In” as great places to start. Say yeah.

Customer Reviews

Simplement bon !!

Cet album d'EITS est tout simplement merveilleux. Selon moi, leur chanson Let Me Back In est leur meilleure chansons depuis Your Hand In Mine ou So Long Lonesome ou même First Breath After Coma. Un groupe qui ne m'a jamais déçu! Chaque album est meilleur que le précédent et ils nous donne toujours cette impression qu'ils ont composé une seule et même chanson. WOW encore merci Explosions in the Sky !

This album is just great. I think Let Me Back In is one of their best songs ever !!!


EITS will never disappoint.

Not as good as The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place, but then again, what could top that album? Another great album from Explosions In The Sky.

Again and again

they always put out thoughtful albums. All the songs seem to be composed with care and patience. great job EITS.

With a reputation for a scathingly intense live performance and a quickly sold-out CD-R demo, How Strange, Innocence, which was later reissued in 2005, Explosions in the Sky was touted early on in their career as the next phenomenon in moody and dynamic instrumental indie rock à la Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor! The quartet of Texas kids, made up of Mark Smith and Munaf Rayani on guitars, Michael James on bass, and Christopher Hrasky on drums, was signed for its first release on Temporary...
