so anyone else suprised that the NME gave the mogwai album 9 out of 10?
seeing as I don't really like them anyway, but I thought Mr Beast was totally boring. More so than there other stuff. The songs sound like they're missing a big chunk of something. They're more like half songs.
Go on. Go away :)
you can keep your smelly post rock.
It's really fucking boring. But then they have been on a slow decline since they first appeared.
Mogwai perfectly listenable, but they are horrendously overrated, and also appear to be objectionable people when interviewed
I liked the single, but I like the rest of the album better. Track 2 - Glasgow Mega Snake is fantastic as is track 4 Travel is Dangerous.
but the PR they're having to do for it isn't.
but the album review suprise me because of the review they gave the single back in January (where they got compared to Snow patrol)and the way Mogwai have been very vocal in there opinions in the last couple of months.
your sw33t arguing skillz?
used to put on all the C86 gigs at the Bull and Gate, back in the day.
they'll write about this ... surely they can't be angry at a good review
can they ?
means the album is shit.
So they have a reason to be angry...
it's nice but not fantastic. mogwai can do so much better.
it's better than the single...
Only 3(?) tracks use piano...
I quite liked the single though!
it's really beautiful. I think it's a stunning album.
There's even a track with Japanese vocals (featuring one of the vocalists from Rock Action's brilliant Japanese hardcore band, Envy)
just been listening to Kicking A Dead Pig, i look forward to this :)i second the single bummage! the vid is great too!
they have a musical sideline project for when they get bored of public ranting ?!? Who'd have thunk it.
