I love GIAA, but they have a harsh way of talking haha. I do get their frustration, a lot of post rock fans can come off as snobby. And they're not aiming for post rock, at all.
I'm not crazy about the first album, but I wonder about all that remixing and remastering they're talking about. I thought Moment of Stillness had pretty good production, especially since the songs are so solemn.
This was very cool, and it makes sense to any GIAA (and EITS) fan. Direct album reference haha.
|To me, Explosions in the Sky is terrestrial and we're extraterrestrial. They're embracing the Earth as not a cold, dead place, and we're saying it is. We want to go to a different universe, and that's what we're here to do, transport people there from this world.|
Warm (EITS) and cold (GIAA).
