Albums of the year: #15

EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY: All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone

Texan post-rock quartet came up trumps with their fourth album – a lush, cinematic collection. It didn’t really break any new ground, but just tweaked and refined the formula of grandiose, sweeping instrumental rock. Initial copies came with a second CD of the whole album remixed by various luminaries. These disappeared in days. When I did track one down to give it a listen, I didn’t really think that the remixes added much. If you were too late to track down the initial double, don’t worry – you got the best stuff!
