4.0 out of 5 stars A different tact for Mogwai, 19 Sep 2011
This review is from: Earth Division (Audio CD)
If you are looking for more of the typical Mogwai post-rock sound of crunching guitars and delay pedals; look away now. If you however, are interested in seeing how Mogwai have developed their sound, stick around and enjoy a very different EP.
Opening with 'Get To France' - this piano driven melody accompanied by strings is painfully beautiful.
Described as a "power free power-ballard" 'Hound of Winter' has a lilting acoustic guitar part, with a superb vocal part that is unexpectedly uplifting. 'Drunk and Crazy' returns to the fairly synth heavy sound of their most recent LP, and mixes heavier Mogwai post-rock with quiet sections of strings. Probably the weaker effort in my opinion.
Closing with 'Does This Always Happen To You?' this has to be the highlight of the EP, a recurring riff in true Mogwai style is layered up with textured piano and string parts.

This is definitely a more haunting and darker sound than Mogwai has ever produced, but a strong and beautiful EP.

2.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I expected from The Vaccines, 31 July 2011
"The saviour of British rock" "British music is not dead." A few quotes from the enormous hype surrounding this bands début album. If you are a lover of songs lasting around 1:30mins, unimaginative guitar parts and lumbering bass lines then you will love this mediocre album. A nice droning vocal adds a more interesting dimension. A reasonably energetic live act. But that's about all to expect from The Vaccines.
