Steve Albini and Mogwai.
Yep, looks good on paper.
Sounds like greatness. To anyone not familiar with Mogwai its lucky you found this page as this will without doubt be the greatest, most cataclysmic 20minute single youre ever likely to buy. This single to me is the perfect response to the wasted oppertunity of Rock Action. All the best Mogwai records are ep's (or singles in this case) so if you find your allegience wavering, dont worry. Theres only really one perfect way to experience this song and its live at the Barrowlands. And if like me youve experienced the terrifying rabbit-in-the-headlights noise/strobe onslaught which accompanies the conclusion to any great Mogwai gig you'll already be suffering the post-traumatic disorders and sweaty flash-backs. This is MUSIC, pure music

The first time I heard this song was (I think) prior to its release, at the Reading Festival 2001, when they ended their live set with it. And I was absolutely blown away, trust me, the cd does not do this song justice. The white noise outro to this song was doubly intensified by an unreal light show, mainly composed of strobes. But for those of you who were unfortunate not to catch a live Mogwai show, buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Although this single is only one song ( a mammoth 20 mins 12 secs long ) , it has to be said this is probably the best mogwai release yet . Certainly there most heaviest , this song bursts with melody one moment , brutal distortion the next . A genuine modern day classic , also produced by modern day legend steve albini . Genius.

Every single second of this 20 minute 12 second masterpiece is essential listening. Mogwai's take on a traditional Jewish hymn is what we've all been waiting more, and confirm's their status as noisenik gods. BUY THIS!!

This track is probably the bestsingle of 2002.It is an interpretation of an ancient jewish hymn which starts out as beautifully serene,builts into a moderately heavy section,goes back to another peaceful bit then rebuilds into a barrage of noise that nearly makes your colon cave in.For a long time this has been the bands epic closer when playing live and with the help of Steve Albini they have finally released it.Truly timeless

this is the single best peice of music involving the use of a guitar and some pedals ever recorded by any one ever. you couldnt improve on it if you tried. it is infectious, lasting, and utterly desivsatingly brilliant. it starts quiet, then get loud, then quiet again then loud, then very noisey, then a bit messy at the end. its a perfect balence. i cant even being to describe what its like melodicly, except that it seems to tap into certain part of you brain and make it explode. please if you like mogwai and you don't own this stop messing about and click buy it now. if you dont know mogwai then buy it because, my father my king is the best place to start. this tune deserves its own cd, it probably deserves its own genre to, its that good.

a rediculously amazing song that sums-up everything that is good in post rock. one of those few songs that will give you goose-bumps and make the hair on the back of your kneck stand on end. almost perfect and one of the best post-rock songs of all time.
if you like it check out 'godspeed! you black emperor', 'mono', 'explosions in the sky', '65 days of static' and 'upcdowncleftcrightc ABC+start'.

wow..this record is amazing..having seen it played live i decided to go and buy it...wow...just as good as the live version..
it starts off quietly...with a nice tune then builds up slowly with the listener getting entangled in the simple melody..then BAMM..it hits you!!
the sound yous fills everything from top to bottom, in oneside to the other.
the guitars at first are virually non existant..but once stuart and they ladz get into it they can make a complete wall of noise but with style. make no mistake, this is not a quiet record.
what you have is a masterpiece of musical noise with the addition of a religious theme...but it is not a religious song.no.
the music sours up then drops down almost completely stopping at one point..but it again builds up.
Mogwai have gone for the quiet and then loud approach here..but with a twist...the last 6ish minutes is just complete noise...it ravages your brain...simply the entire track breaks down into reverb and distortion with some added effects..it is one of those tracks which makes you want to turn up the volume as loud as it can go and just sit there....but the ludest it can go just isnt loud enough
this is an amazing track form a band i have just got into...this record will tale you on a journy of peacefulness to hedmess decomposion...
buy it..and feel it.
