Explosions In The Sky's second and breakthrough album 'Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever' was subject to a bizarre conspiracy that the group somehow predicted 9/11. The phrase "this plane will crash tomorrow" is printed in the album art inners and a rumour was spread that its release date was September 10th, though it was released on the 4th. Historical moments aside, the Texan post-rock group's second album put them on the map for making grand, uplifting and sweeping instrumental music. This one's an excellent starting point into the group.
