Mogwai's music is impossible to define, and that's half its appeal. Heavy guitars surge, keyboards fade in and out of the foreground, complex rhythms drive. But no vocals. Well, hardly any.
The Glasgow band will never get daytime radio play, but I don't expect they care. Hopefully they will keep on turning out exquisite, passionate masterpieces like this, true blends of the most brilliant light and the blackest shade. This is their first album, in fact a collection of eps, but for me it's their best. Buy it and love it.
