"Ambiguity seems to be one of the disc's greater appeals. Depending upon your mood, the album can document good versus evil, existential insignificance versus blissful ignorance, war versus peace, or whatever other contrasting forces best suit your life at the moment. Where so many lyricists fail in exacting the perfect sentiment, Explosions in the Sky have crafted a record comprised solely of ever-changing blanks to be filled in. And though each of these tracks supposedly tells stories, one needs only draw upon their own life to understand the pathos explored. May these songs become a soundtrack to your vanity."- Kevin Adickes, Pitchfork

"Extremes are the name of the game here. From a dull, clean pluck of the guitar, to thunderous drum fills and crunching guitars. Tempo swings and mood changes at a moment's notice are the centerpiece of this album and the reason why it's so dynamic. While listening, you can't help but be transported to a place all on it's own. Every chord and drum fill hits you separately while at the same time creating a wall of sound. Plenty of bands try the different dynamics of being mellow and loud at what seems like the same time, but never does it sound so effortless and utterly well done as with Explosions In The Sky." - Punknews
