is probably my most favorite piece of post-rock ever.







The fuzz, the hum, the distortion, the use of electronics, the effects-laden weird vocals, the quiet-loud-quiet, the guitars that literally make swirling sounds (I swear "swirling guitars" is one of the most overused nonsense descriptions in rock music reviews)...best fucking post-rock ever. Godspeed and Explosions in the Sky got me into post-rock, but this album in particular made me find potential to LOVE it. The problem is I've never heard anything else come close to it in sound, including other Mogwai albums. Anybody know other stuff that's similar?

Mr. Beast got me into post rock. That album will always hold a special place in my heart.

I have a sad amount of Mogwai. Sad

Two songs off of Happy Songs for Happy People that I bought on ITunes for some reason
and I have Mr. Beast
and that live coachella set.

Saw them back in August. They had some audio trouble in the start, but once they got going... dayum.

Ten years ago, Young Team was explained to me as being the best of the best for both Mogwai and post-rock in general. I bought it and liked it. But it's no where close to Rock Action. Rock Action is miles above everything else to me.
