Explosions in the Sky: The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place
Dave Simpson, The Guardian, 5 December 2003
IF THE IDEA of an album of instrumentals filled with titles such as 'First Breath After Coma' sounds like heavy going, this Texan four-piece are here to make us think again. Their UK debut could have been sonically designed to make the world more beautiful. They're clearly fond of the kind of celestial, spangly guitars that gave us the Cocteau Twins, Durutti Column and Galaxie 500, although they have thrown in some military drums.
Total word count of piece: 155
