Will there ever be anything bad released by Mogwai?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ten Rapid: (Collected Recordings 1996 - 1997) (Audio CD)
Mogwai fans - you know what to expect: there are some quiet bits and there are some very loud bits, but most of all there are some overwhelmingly beautiful bits. This album is worth buying just for the ridiculously, mind-blowingly and any other positive adjective you can think of-ly good Helicon 1, plus you get the initial version of Summer, which they tend to play live. More like Young Team than Come on die young, the emotions are all still there. Hear the sound of the dinosaurs becoming extinct during Summer, and then let your heart break during the gorgeous melancholy of Tuner (with some nice vocals thrown in - shock horror!). Oh, and you get arguably the greatest song title of all time: I am not batman. What more could you ask for?
