2.0 out of 5 stars I guess it's just me, 20 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (Audio CD)
...try though I might I just can't get it.
Mogwai have provided the soundtrack to my life for the last 6 years or so and in that time hardly 2 days have gone by without listening to something of theirs. Whatever the mood, there was a track that fitted. Why is it then that I just can't get into this album? I have tried listening to it as if it were not an actual Mogwai release and (shamefully I always thought I had an objective ear ) it came out even worse, I've played it everyday, once a week, left it a couple of weeks but still it doesn't work. Some tracks (shhhh....don't tell anyone ) I even skip over completely.
Sorry, but for some reason I'm feeling like the kid in the Hans Christian Andersen tale here as everyone else is saying how wonderful it is but for me it just doesn't quite click.

You and me both. Been a rabid fan since 1997 and seen them countless times.....ok 17. But this album just doesn't do it for me. The production seems to nice and polished, A lot of the songs just don't seem up to scratch either, How to be a werewolf goes nowhere over 5-6 minutes and just sounds like a far less good (yep - less good) version of Yes! I am a long way from home. George Thatcher... sounds to me like a Killers song. That is definitely NOT a compliment. The only song I do like is Rano Pano. The end riff on You're Lionel Ritchie is something Metallica would discard for being too 'stock'. I really hope the 'Gwai ditch the production sound they seem to have developed over the last 2-3 albums, they all sound to processed and not like an actual band. I'll still see them live every chance I get tho....

Havent heard the album but maybe Mogwai have gone on a bit too long.Maybe theyve overdone the band and its time to move on.
