They have numerous different people with vastly different opinions and tastes reviewing and posting news articles, it's to be expected that they aren't going to be remotely consistent because of that. A few days ago they posted a news article about Lupe Fiasco where the person who wrote the article essentially just used it as a chance to tell everyone how terrible he thought Lupe Fiasco is. The editor actually left a comment inside the article saying that he thought Lupe and his albums were great. It's all pretty silly, but what are you gonna do. Different people like different things, music and art in general is all ultra-subjective.

That all said, the review for The Hawk is Howling is still one of most poorly written reviews I've read. Let me once again post this horrifying big of imagery from it:

"The album just feels redundant and tenuous, like the last empty cloud trailing behind a fierce storm."

Then I wonder what exactly the editor would have to be on to be okay with that getting posted.

Mogwai is the shieeeet.

I saw them play a few years ago... madness. It was excellent. If you aren't into them too much, here are a few tracks I recommend:

Cody, Waltz For Aidian, Chocky, Christmassteps, I Know You Are But What Am I?, Glasgow Mega-Snake, Acid Food, I Chose Horses, We're No Here, Take Me Somewhere Nice, 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong, Tracy, and so many more. Damn. I thought I'd list a couple.. haha.

Here's a link where you can download the albums and stuff. Mogwai is amazing...
quack

If you can't get in, the password is 'quack'. The archive is excellent for downloading music by the way.

I just heard a Mogwai song for the first time, something off the new album. I then sought out a few others and most of what I heard, I liked.

Consider me intrigued ...

Did someone say Mogwai?



Sorry, saw this thread and had to.

I'm surprised the thread made it five pages without that reference.

You have great things to look forward to Cori, as while I like the songs you mentioned, they do have better.

Government Commissions is a good starting place, it's a collection of live recorded versions from the BBC that essentially is supposed to be a "best of" without being a "best of". You kind of get to hear tidbits from all their albums on there, and can hear their live sound as well. Pretty much all of the albums are quite good though, so you'd be good with studio albums as well.

Mogwai rawks.

I've been obsessed with 'Scotland's Shame' lately, it's probably even my favorite song from Hawk right now (yes, even more than Batcat). Love how it just keeps building and building and building, love the keyboards and organ as well.

This song takes me somewhere every time I listen to it. Somewhere awesome.

It's one of my favorites too, from a composition standpoint I think "The Precipice" has to be my favorite.
