Mogwai Come On Die Young
Grade

Lull

Mogwai is an unusual beast. Musically kin to Fugazi, they can come out in a whisper and grow into a steady pulse of rhythm. Having very little in the way of lyrics, most listeners might find themselves confused by the steady, lulling harmonies.

The album itself rolls on flowing from one song to the other, slowly growing in intensity until it raises to a fevered pitch in the next to last song, Christmas Steps. For those who need to have a structured musical environment, this album may not be for you. If you're fond of soundscape bands like Lull and Main, you should find this along the same lines, just with guitars and a regular beat.

If you want to have something just to listen to as one solid piece of work, then grab up Come On Die Young.
