Explosions in the Sky, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forev

Instrumental bombast, everlasting beauty: a truly unforgettable album from what will certainly be an unforgettable band. While Explosions in the Sky recreate a sound oft-explored by the likes of Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Mogwai, they choose to leave out all the soft-soft build-up—instead focusing on the loud-loud crash-in, and then reinventing it over and over on every epic piece. Quite honestly, this is a very nearly perfect album.
