ETIS's latest offering "The earth is not a cold dead place" is a magical journey of textural guitars, rolling bass lines, and a drum sound that is reminiscent of a summer storm.....From the opening track "first breath after coma" the sweeping melodies drift across your consciousness, with some exquisite chord voicings the listener is transformed into actually taking that first delicious breath after being in a coma......"Six days at the bottom of the ocean" takes the you on a trip to the ocean floor inside the Russian submarine as the crushing inevitability of the situation "explodes" into complete silence..... "The earth is not a cold dead place" was described in a review as "music that saved my life", I find statements in this ilk patronizing and contemptuous, however, if music can indeed save ones life, and after almost overdosing on some of the gibberish that is recorded today the sublime peregrination that Explosions in the Sky deliver may well be as close as one can get to an adrenaline shot straight to the heart............Worth every penny you have.....

. . . but I found that no matter how hard I tried, I could not find proper hermeneutical access to it, so I decided not to. Thus, what you're reading is not a review, just a bunch of probably pretty stupid random thoughts rather pitifully put together. Bottom line, I just don't have either the time or inclination to acquaint myself with its aesthetic precursers (in so far as I even know or could know without extensive research into who those are) such as, I suppose, metal bands (Led Zeppelin? Metallica?), other (generally) non-vocal groups, usually called "post-rock" (GY!BE, A Silver Mount Zion, Mogwai, Sigur Ros), minimalism (Philip Glass? Steve Reich?), ambient (Brian Eno? Daniel Lanois?), _______________ (?).
It sounds to me kinda like Joshua Tree-era U2 without vocals--anthemic, slightly pretensious, generally quite gorgeous. What I'm a little puzzled by, although I admit this may contain a disingenuous component (hey, I'm probably the most over-the-top reviewer on all of Amazon, the guy who said Pictures of Soul by Omar Sosa is the greatest disc ever recorded and that he and Adam Rudolf have figured out a whole new way to play music), is the waxing rapturous over this not unpleasant aural mind candy. I'm not saying these reviews are unpleasant to read-- quite the contrary; I absolutely adored Lord Chimp's rapturous musings--just that I'm struggling to make a connection between their content and the music coming out of my speakers.
Oh, well. Just ignore these stupid ramblings. Somewhere between 2 and 1/2 and 4 and 1/2 stars.

i have not written many reviews - trying to write only to those albums which 'hit' something in me. explosions debut album did the exact same as this one does. from the beginning of the album the listener is subjected to unothadox sounds coming from instruments of the most commonality. the first track - first brath after coma - reminds me a lot of their last album in style. you can't help but move your body to the riffs created. half way into the song you notice that your foot is lifting up and down, your head is shaking side to side, and your hand patting your stomach trying to follow all of the sounds thrown at you. the second track - the only moment we were together - is slower and different than what you'll hear on those who tell the truth...and while it is different, the listener may venture off of the music a little bit. however, when the third track begins - six days at the bottom of the ocean - it continues the slower building trend of the second but which so much more intensity and emotion falling out of the musical movements. what i love about this track is that it constantly builds and builds but never fully peaks. where with almost all of their songs there is a peak, this one keeps you in the building phrase to only stop at a slow lull to start track four. memorial - the title really tells the mood of this song. the most repetitive of their songs, it makes the listener dig through the music to find the changes and stay ingaged and then at the end, is an explosion of sound rewarding the listener for the first seven minutes of the track. the last track - your hand in mine - a beautiful opener. a smile can not help but creap upon my face as i get two and a half minutes in. its blissful sound coming through my headphones. i can't describe it beyond that.Read more ›

In a time when commercial radio and television are flooded with lame love songs, Explosions is a sigh of relief. Utilizing only two clean guitars, bass, and drums, on their latest, Explosions make a profound emotional statement. Their first, released right before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, contained dark artwork, an image of a plane crashing, and fittingly pessimistic music. This time around, Explosions adopt brighter, white in fact, album art, and the music follows suit. Still rather stark at points, Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place shimmers with hope, triumph, and optimism in the face of modern existence's seeming futility. Fans of Godspeed and Mogwai should latch on immediately to this band, but anyone who values emotional, absolute (no lyrics) music, Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place will simply blow you away. This is my favorite album of 2003 and will probably turn out to be one of my all-time favs. I cannot get sick of it after hundreds of spins in a few short months, and every time I'm touched. Oh, and despite its non-vocal nature, the guitar parts are very lyrical (I GUARANTEE you'll get the melodies stuck in your head). ALL TRACKS ARE PHENOMENAL. PLAY AT HIGH VOLUMES! They're one of the loudest live bands around and they intend for their music to be played ear-splittingly and spine-tinglingly loud!
