Mogwai - 2014

One of the two essential elements musicians should master are dynamics and diversity. Dynamics here referring to much more than the concept of loud and soft. Diversity not just in genre. If more of an explanation is needed then they are failing themselves and the listener. Simply put, on this album, Mogwai does exactly that. Unfortunately the songs on this album sound as bored with themselves as I was with them. One bright side to the album is that is does give up after 49:03. I'm usually all for that which is Scottish but I feel rather ill spending my Burns night, a celebration of one of the greatest poets in all of history, with Mogwai, one of the most dull bands also in all of history Thank you, Tony and Colin. No video.
