"Explosions in the Sky's sixth album, their best since 2003's The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place, is a quietly masterful, emotionally rich work. Explosions in the Sky are the kind of band that you think about in terms of scale." - Pitchfork

"among The Wilderness' gentle pianos and Eno-like ambience are percussive depth charges, industrial machine-like sounds and frantic math-rock. The lovely Colors in Space suddenly erupts into jarring noise reminiscent of Hitchcock’s Psycho. It works, though, because the melodies are as strong as ever, and among the darker shades, the lighter moments wallop home." - The Guardian

"The final trio – “Infinite Orbit”, “Colours in Space”, and “Landing Cliffs” –makes clear the gathering theme as The Wilderness winds down: lift-off, weightless journey, turbulent reentry, contemplative resolution. It is a sonic reflection on the new wilderness we are only beginning to encroach upon, uncertain and endless with possibilities." - Line of Best Fit
