5.0 out of 5 stars Loving this album, 16 Feb 2011
This review is from: Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (Audio CD)
Came home from work, hard day, traffic was terrible... but I didn't care because this album was playing in my car very loudly. White Noise & Rano Pano are lovely tuneful numbers that deserve to be played loud, Mexican Grand Prix is a strange one for Mogwai, at first I didn't quite know where they were going with it, but after the first minute or two I was nodding my head in appreciation.

Letters to the metro has a lovely melancholy feel to it and wouldn't have been out of place on Happy Songs, very nice indeed, which flows nicely into the rocking George Sq Thatcher Death Party, complete with its wall of sound guitars, upbeat tempo & vocals.

'Too Raging To Cheers' is superb, no other word for it, although I would have liked this track to be little bit longer, it could so easily have been a "Rats of the Capital" type of number. I Still love it though. But they did save the best for last, "You're Lionel Richie" is a fantastic track even by Mogwai's high standards.

Great job lads, keep 'em coming.

Must just add a final few words on the track on the 2nd disc called "Music for a forgotten future (The Singing Mountain)". This track appears to be building up to something from the word go, but never actually gets to the dizzying heights of My Father My King. Just as you think its going to get very loud, it slowly lets you down gently on a wave of strings and piano. Nice record though, reminiscent of some of the material they recorded for the soundtrack to the movie "The Fountain"

All in all, Loving it!!
