Explosions In The Sky @ Sydney Opera House

Glorious, magnificent, sumptuous. Five men from Texas totally and utterly immersed in the making of music. Epic sounds and huge emotions. Explosions in the Sky can summon thoughts and emotions without uttering a single word. Thursday night at the Opera House was my third time seeing them and each second of each show was a thrilling ride. There is quite simply no one like them in the live arena.

Guitars rise and fall, drums crash. They are totally in sync with each other and you can physically see them feeling each and every note. And they take the audience with them, in joyous symphony. I still can't quite figure out how they make their guitars sound like they do. They speak to them and they speak back. It's a beautiful sight and they truly stir up inside anyone who has the privilege of seeing them. Everything was near perfect, the set list was a feast for all. By the time they closed with the epic mountain that is 'The Only Moment We Were Alone' it was clear to all that we had again witnessed something extremely special.
