2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, Boring, Boring, 3 May 2001
This review is from: Rock Action (Audio CD)
If quiet is the new loud, kill me now. This new "EP" by Mogwai, the so called "Rock Action" was meant to propel their underground genius into the mainstream. "Rock Action" is a collection of boring recordings that are quite simply, nothing compared to the post-rock masterpieces of the previous albums. The album is far too short compared to previous releases (hence, my EP title) and thank the lord almighty for I have been saved. For those looking for Mogwai to repeat their "success" of Come On Die Young and are looking for more tunes like "Christmas Steps", "Ex Cowboy", "Kappa" and even the sublime "Mogwai fear Satan" from their first UK Album "Young Team", they will be disappointed. There is just quiet textures, no melody and Stuart Braithwaite trying to sing. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. The single "Take Me Somewhere Nice" is by far the best track and only because of the guitar riff in the back ground. On "Dial:Revenge", Gruff Rhys of SFA sounds as if he is dying to get out the studio and Robot Chant is one of those songs that bands just put on an album to make it 40 minutes long. Is this post "Post Rock"? A Message to Stuart Braithwaite, leave the textures to "Godspeed you Black Emperor!!!", leave the singing to David Gray and most certainly, plug those amplifiers back in. Go back to what you know lads - go back to what you know.
