A good band but this is hardly their pinnacle work
on 8 April 2015
I think I chose the wrong Mogwai album to start with.
I briefly heard them playing in a vinyl store and was intrigued by their dark music. But I admit to being a little disappointed when I purchased it. A couple of the songs I simply didn't get; such as the middle of one track where a voice discusses the satanic messages found in Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven when played backwards. Why? I can see what you were trying to do... but it just didn't really work.
However I think I will try another Mogwai album because some parts were nice and I can see they could definitely make some great music. I like their style, this particular set just wasn't for me.
