9/10 Brian Staff review, 27 November 2006
Post-rock has begun to bore me. I'll be honest. Not many bands can hold my attention these days with yet another approximation of the tried & tested quiet/loud dynamic. Mogwai only knock yer socks off live really, basically cos yer glued to the floor with whatever substances you've imbibed working in league with the fractured strobes & bowel emptying feedback/propulsive distortion. Explosions In The Sky's last album was Ok I suppose, a bit clean & bland, going through the motions. The good thing is that it opened doors for them all over the shop, going from 30 people in a Manchester pub on a drizzly weekday night to absolutely ramming 400 capacity clubs in the space of a few months. I wanna capture that Manchester pub gig though & the only way I'll do that now is to play their re-mastered debut (there was only a handful of scrappy CDr's to start with) on Temporary Residence. This is the shit. The band are a bit "ashamed" of 'How Strange, Innocence' apparently but they should hold back their perfectionist ideals & embrace this fledgling beauty as the rough diamond it really is. Perfection = bland y'see. These 7 tracks are spine tingling, beautiful, spectral & tense, forever building towards that nerve shredding climax that this band built their foundations on. The true companion piece to 'Those Who Tell The Truth....' Lovely new artwork too! I'd invest with glee!
