No, I'm not joking. Mogwai are good, the best there is, and Mono did very much start out as a (heartfelt)Mogwai tribute band but it should be pretty clear from this collection alone that they have transcended those influences and become the force they always threatened to be. That this collection of e.p's spread across several years should hang together so well as one album is a testimony to the band's singular vision and commitment to it. Their music expresses everything that matters - passion, pain, joy, suffering, transcedence - and fills the void between what we know and the vital mystery that keep us evolving as a species. Most "art" these days is, as Oscar Wilde said, completely useless but I would value Mono's music as being as vital as anything the human spirit needs to endure. This is no mere hyperbole - I truly mean what I say here, and I encourage anyone half-intrigued to stump up a few quid to see if I'm right. Play 'Little Boy' just once and I think you will find your life has been changed just a little bit for the better. Awesome.

this is one of the best in my collection. this one compiles mono's previous ep including the 'very hard to get' split ep with pelican. although it is an ep compilations, it stands out from the rest of their album. you can hear mono changing their moods from smooth classical to heavy riffing guitars. this is instrumental music at its best. just try the last track; little boy(1945-future).

This track did not download at all, so kind of hard to review. Amazon took my money, sent me the invoice details but the track is nowhere to be found, it's not even in my cloud. I get very unhappy with companies that rip people off. Next time I'll try another provider, should have given my money to Boomkat instead.

beauty and rock 10 May 2008
By michael soule - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
the soaring rock of mono won me over at a live show in chicago and i have been in love ever since.
their album work doesn't reach the highs of their live set (and i challenge you to find a rock band worth their salt for which this is true) but it is lovely. the power they display when they do display it is not raw. they shape it and make a form of it which separates their powerful peaks from those of other bands. it is not restraint but creation. yes, creation. there is a sense of the galactic in mono's sense of space and also of channeled power.
beautiful work.
i have three CDs. this is my favorite and the most accessible, i think.
Experimental music that takes risks 18 Mar 2012
By G. Mosley - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Gone" is not a Mono album. As the title indicates, this is a collection of EP's. Therefore, a band capable of the work with World's End Girlfriend, where the transitions are so slow and the moods so subdued that it can be trying, and explosive conceptual music like "Hymn to the Immortal Wind" offers a challenge. Some of the tracks here occur in other forms on other records, but there are pieces that are simply unimaginable. There is no unifying theme on this record, and, despite the unhappy reviewer, there is no consistent production, either. It is (let's see if we can remember this this time) a collection of EP's.

That said, the experiments are on the harder edge. There are moments (ok, minutes) on "Gone" that shatter musical form and remind us that, even if their black clad fans haven't, they at least know the music of Einstürzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle, and the other "noise bands." However, even in the track where a rotating horn scrapes, the band breaks musical form as a part of form, and to serve a basically Romantic impulse. Some listeners may not want to follow all the emotions, but the music is emotional portraiture.

More Loudness War Crap 29 April 2009
By jomojomo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm sick of spending money on cd's with interesting music only to find the mastering or possibly the mixing guy has cranked all the knobs to 11 to get the highest rms level possible. During the supposedly powerful bits on this cd, there is monstrous amounts of compression, distortion, and clipping. I would avoid this disc if you care about sound quality. Maybe the vinyl is better, I don't know. For example, listen to Yearning from 7:40 to 12:00. It sound absolutely horrible.

Look up loudness war at wikipedia or google 'loudness war lousy sound' for more info.
