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.
