I'll get the main thing out of the way right from the start - Explosions in the Sky's new album, All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone, is essentially a mirror of everything they've done so far in their career. But for a band like this, I must question whether that is a criticism or a compliment. Well, after a four year mark between releases, I think it's gotta be a compliment. When the opening track, "The Birth and Death of the Day" strums in and first hits its bashing note around the 4 1/2 minute time, true followers will sigh with relief just to have them back again. Maybe it's even more of a good thing that they're just putting some extra seasoning on the anthemic sound they were so close to perfecting in the first place.

Yes, once again we have a slew of running time variety inside each track, with songs ranging from 3 1/2 minutes to 13 1/2 and everywhere in between. The record's long one, "It's Natural To Be Afraid", proves once again that although Explosions music is without lyrics, there are constant moments that speak louder than words within their strums and mood breaks. Changing it up ever so slightly and maybe offering us a glimpse that the next album will promise a new direction, the final two songs are more haunting and mellow all the way through, closing out All Of A Sudden... on a fine note.
