5.0 out of 5 stars Unknown emotions turned into music Feb. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have very little to add to Lord Chimp's great review of this album ("Post-rock for lovers").
_The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place_ takes emotions that you never knew existed, and puts them into musical form. Explosions In The Sky has a brilliant knack for making the most incredibly emotional music. Listening to this album is a treat to behold - you will feel things that you never knew you could feel. Intense joy and sorrow that cannot be adequately described. This album is absolutely essential, and is one of the best albums of 2003; it has already become one of my all-time favorite albums, surpassing even their debut album _Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Live Forever_ (which was a landmark album in the post-rock world, as well as my life).
I really cannot say enough complementary things about this band or this album. If you enjoy music that makes you _feel_, look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the pages of... April 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
The following was written in my notebook earlier today. Consider it a testament to the beauty and power of EITS, and the way music can better our lives:
This is one of the most pure moments of my life. Time: 7:14 pm. Date: 4.16.4. Location: picnic table behind Clevenger. Music: Explosions In The Sky. Smoking: Swisher Sweets Perfecto. Drinking: Boyd's Light Roast coffee from Courtside. The sun is beginning to set.
I think I just smiled for the first time today. This moment makes me incredibly happy. A bird just flew overhead against the light-blue, yellow-tinted sky. As he disappeared, "Your Hand In Mine" became triumphant and even more beautiful than it already was. EITS's music was made for moments like this - the tiny, insignificant moments that make you realize how great life is and how beautiful everything around you is. Listening to this band relieves stress and gives me hope. Life seems to be falling in place all around me. The only thing that matters is this pure music...this pure emotion...this absolutely pure moment.
A pine tree sways in the wind. A man drives by, oblivious. I inhale this sweet smoke once more. A foreign man on a bike rides by, curiously observing the beautiful world around him. A cloud of swirling smoke exits my mouth and nose, floating to the ether. A streetlamp flickers on as the sun continues its descent. I light another cigar as the music builds and envelops me. The sun bids me farewell. I sit, cloaked in smoke, song, and darkness.
The purest moment of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars When I first listened to this band.... May 25 2005
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
I was awestruck. This band is just beautiful. I first heard of them from the friday night lights movie and just loved how the music can capture emotion. I love this bands artwork, I own both cd's now and I love how one side is posiive the other side is negative. I paid 52$ (can) for both of their cd's and it was probably one of the best purchases of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A journey...... July 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets Better All The Time... July 3 2004
By sammy!
Format:Audio CD
BUY IT! This is the universal must-have no matter what your taste in music. Real music created by real musicians, not manufactured garbage ripped off from the last great thing to fatten the wallets of all parties involved. Read the reviews, Listen to clips - there up there, click on them and crank it up! Dont take a chance on some other hit-or-miss record purchase. This stuff is unbelievable!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Some may call Explosions in the Sky Mogwai-Lite, but this album of 5 songs really places the band alongside their post-rock brothers (with Godspeed as well); tinted with optimism, showering with sparkling guitar, this album won't disappoint those who have come to love post-rock. Although slightly repetitive, this album does far more than the latest efforts from Mogwai and GY!BE do - consistently evoke strong emotions, moving the listener in and out of a range of beauty, melancholy, and everything in-between. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could.
