2.0 out of 5 stars dont start here.....Mogwai are better than this, 20 July 2004
By 
This review is from: Come On Die Young (Audio CD)
Having seen Mogwai live (a great experience) I came searching Amazon for the best thing to buy. This was recommended. I spent 3 months listening trying to work out why I had liked them live as this was (mostly) very boring.
In desperation, I switched to their new album "Happy Songs..." and within days was captivated. Since then I have seen them live again and purchased "Young Team" - which is also excellent.
Barring "Xmas Steps" there's little here to delay you and it certainly pales in comparison with the likes of Explosions in the Sky.
If you like your post rock with a raw edge go to "Young Team", if with hypnotic layered tunes - then try "Happy Songs.." - but give this a miss.

In term of pacing, atmospherics, timbre, texture, use of electronics, etc. Mogwai's work on 'Come On Die Young' is vastly superior to any of the Explosions In The Sky albums I've heard. I take your point, though, this is an album is for people with an ear for sonic detail; those in search of pleasant, simple melodies might find more to enjoy on 'Happy Songs For Happy People' or 'The World Is Not A Cold Dead Place'.

simple, you dont know what your on about. Cody is fantastic.No person that has this album would agree with what you just wrote.

I agree with the review. I'm a Mog fan and have owned this album since its day of release. I keep trying but it's not my cuppa.
