5.0 out of 5 stars their best album, 30 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Rock Action (Audio CD)
mogwai have always had amazing songs on their previous LPs but where 'Young team' was marred by some really crap tracks like 'radar maker' 'with portfolio' and 'r u still in 2 it' and 'Come on die Young' failed simply by being too long and boring with not enough loud 'Rock Action' succeeds by cutting back with a less is more approach. much has been made of the shortness of this record at 38 minutes it is only short for a mogwai lp and it is this coupled with the diversity of the tracks - here for the first time on a mogwai album no two tracks really sound the same - that makes this a much better album. the other important thing is that mogwai have not lost any of there emotional intensity. the vocals (which have been used several times before on mogwai songs) are more prominent than on early songs like 'tuner' or 'i am not batman' but they don't dominate the song to the same extent as on 'cody' from 'come on die young'. here they are merely add an accent to the song, you can listen and sing along or you can let them wash over you and concentrate on the music. not to criticise their early work too much but this album is clearly there best because for the first time there isnt a bad song on here.
