Explosions In The Sky, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
2011 | Label: Temporary Residence Ltd. / SC Distribution

Five albums into their career, Explosions In The Sky are not about to make major adjustments to their modus operandi. This means that Take Care Take Care Take Care is the same as its predecessors, only more so: majestically portentous swaths of quasi-epic guitar, metronomic drumming and a determination to cleave to the Alan Vega-coined drone-rock dictum that minimal is maximal. This approach works brilliantly, because the Texan post-rockers have crafted six elegiac instrumentals… read more »

A pioneer in 'crescendo-core', EITS put their best foot forward when they're drenched in reverb & delay, and sadness, and have snare drums shooting off like fireworks in the summer sky. They to do this exquisitely for all 45 minutes on Take Care, Take Care, Take Care until you play it again. a full review is available at www.yarnly.com

good comeback


I'm a huge fan Explosions in the Sky, but I was a little disappointed after the previous record. It just didn't stick with me. But I'm finding "Take care, take care, take care" to be a much richer experience. The band has branched out a bit, incorporating some different sounds (Postcard from1952) and the melodies are back. The dynamics are still there but the production is more lush than "All of a sudden". While I'm not sure anything will be as epic as their early records, "Take care" is a great effort from these guys.

Hmmmm, can't tell what we have here


I didn't hear anything very interesting in these tracks, but then a 30 second sample is not enough to verify the favourable review (by Ian Gittans) of songs that are mostly 8 minutes long. Doesn't mean there isn't something good here. I would have to risk disappointment to find out, but that's the main limitation of the whole etunes or itunes experience. It all comes down to 30 seconds

Stop complaining about the price!


Complain about the music instead: a watered down, neutered shadow of their previous albums. I think I'm done with these guys.

I truly find it hard to believe people can complain about the prices. I easily buy 6 CD's and some for $30.99. You get 36.99 worth of music. Even with the price increase it is a bargan. Plus, as Turntable says, 'you bought it'. I refuse to buy anything that restricts me from using as I please. If a purchase has been made by me to ITunes you will know it is a lie, someone else did it.

Also a little surprised


Nice album. But for 3 bucks more, I can get the physical product at my local indie music store. That's a CD that you can burn into your computer at a much much much MUCH higher sound quality than you get at emusic, the art, the booklet *and* I get to support a local business and local jobs. I too will pass.

A Little Surprised...


Such an amazing album, and people are complaining about it being $6.99? Really? Do you realize the vinyl sells for $25-$34? Amazon is selling the mp3 download for $9.99 right now, so this is still cheaper. Same price as iTunes? Well from eMusic you can actually do what you want with your music (since you BOUGHT it) - not just what Steve Jobs will allow you to do. Don't let the cost get you down. This album is great!

Who Are…Dry the River

By Annie Zaleski, Contributor

The five members of Dry the River cut their teeth playing in punk bands in the south of England. However, even after vocalist Peter Liddle moved to London to study medicine, he never lost his passion for music; in fact, the people he turned to when it came time to record a demo were those same mates from his hardcore days. Much to the young band's surprise, things took off fast: Formed in 2009, they… more »


Who Are…Alcest

By Jon Wiederhorn, Contributor

Though he was raised in a vibrant French black metal scene, Alcest frontman Neige outgrew the rage and nihilism of the genre and strived to craft something that's just as powerful but far more beautiful. Drawing on his classical guitar training and his love for Celtic melodies and soundtrack composers, he developed Alcest, following the raw 2001 black metal-based demo Tristesse Hivernale with the 2005 EP Le Secret (which was recently re-recorded), which began with… more »


36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »
