This review is from: Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (Audio CD)
Another Mogwai album - another great album, in fact possibly one of their best. Quite how they keep doing it year on year, when most bands have brief creative peak, is beyond me. But I'm very happy that they do.
As ever their sound has been tweaked again, more uptempo songs, more synths and vocoder, fewer of those 'paving stone dropped on the head' quiet to loud moments. To be honest I was a little underwhelmed at first, but like the best albums it has grown on me with every play. Hard to pick out tracks as it is quality from start to finish, that great Mogwai mix of melancholy and happiness, crushing riffs and delicate melodies. Simply brilliant.
The 2 CD version is worth getting for "Music for a forgotten future (the singing mountain)" 23 minutes of beauty.
Don't hesitate - buy it!
