Following what - in my opinion - was a lacklustre remix album, this out-of-the-blue surprise EP is its stark contrast. While it mightn't be long (indeed Soup is a kind of glueing filler) it's perfect from start to finish. The moody opener Wizard Motor has to be the opener for any future Mogwai shows.
The Huts has a nice kind of lost-in-the-woods feel about it and The Messiah Needs Watching spookily sees us out.

It doesn't cost much and barely last 15 minutes, but we have the important factor here: quality.

this EP is like a great short story...it gives you plenty of enjoyment but leaves you wanting just a little more. i don't mean that in a bad way...i just didn't want it to end.
'the huts' is the real stand out track for me. puts me in mind of the cure around 1980 (carnage visors is still strong in my head).
mogwai pack more into four tunes than most bands can on a couple of albums.

Eerie, unsettling, and brimming with atmosphere 20 Dec. 2012
By Jack Tripper - Published on Amazon.com
'Les Revenants,' which features Mogwai's soundtrack music for the French zombie TV series of the same name, was quite a pleasant surprise for me. Oftentimes, musical scores lose some of their power when separated from the film or show, but that's definitely not the case here. It may be only 13 minutes long, but these four songs are packed with haunting melodies and eerie atmospherics and, imo, ranks among their best work over the past few years.

One reason for this could be the fact that Mogwai are a band who seem to be made for soundtrack work, as many of their songs are designed to create a sustained mood, and maybe having actual film sequences to score has focused their energies. Whatever the case, you'll find serene bliss on the short-but-sweet "Soup" and the absolutely lush "This Messiah Needs Watching," along with dark, almost David Lynchian atmosphere on "The Huts." The highlight though, imo, is "Wizard Motor," a mindblower that starts with a simple, soothing organ drone, and slowly builds with a hypnotic drumbeat, then crunching guitars until the song erupts into pure headphone euphoria.

I would love to see how these songs match up with the scenes from 'Les Revenants' one day, as it can only add to the emotional impact of these songs. While the EP is a bit on the short side, it's perfect for a nice quick headphone journey when time is short, like during a lunch break, as you'll go through a wide range of feelings in just 13 quick minutes.

If this is a sneak-peak at the direction Mogwai will be taking for their next album, you can definitely count me in. Hopefully this will tide me over in the meantime.

Modern Mogwai. 31 Jan. 2013
By Brian Lange. - Published on Amazon.com
When I was in college, Mogwai was jokingly referred to as the "soundtrack band" since so much of their music feels appropriate for soundtrack use. Well, here they are on a soundtrack. A zombie soundtrack.

The music is something in between mellow and unnerving. As this is a soundtrack for a French Zombie TV show, the music is highly appropriate. It sometimes gets repetitive and seems to loop, but it feels more like a progression towards something unsettling, if that makes any sense. You can create many images in your head of what is occurring as this music plays. Very good music for background or letting your mind wander.

If you've wandered here because you're a fan of 28 Days Later or the soundtrack, then this is up that alley. I have not seen the show, so I cannot attest to how the music works in conjunction with the visuals or the story, but it definitely evokes a lot of feeling and imagery.

As far as the style, it seems to continue in the direction the band is going with Hardcore, but also throws back to their earlier sounds like in Happy Songs or Hawk. The 'clean' production quality seems very akin to that of Hardcore, especially the feeling of atmosphere you'd find in the 30-minute track, Music for a Forgotten Future. For a Mogwai fan, this is well worth a purchase and probably will not disappoint. I hope that Mogwai's next endeavor will be in the vein of this soundtrack!

There's really not much you can say about a 4 song EP, but this one is knocked right out of the park. Each track is perfect for so many moods, and I love to listen to songs on 1-track-repeat, and each one of these tracks is great for that.
Short but sweet 3 Feb. 2013

Makes me excited for the full length due in march. Shorter songs than I'm used to from mogwai but they still convey the same effort and energy of their full length albums.
