3 stars Interesting album!!!

Before I purchased this album I had no post-rock in my collection and this album introduced me to this genre. In my search for new musical proposals I decided to explore this kind of music. So, once when I went to my CD store I ask myself: Mogwai, why not? I bought this album probably for curiosity after listening only a couple of tracks.

But what is CODY like and how to describe Mogwai's music?

Their music is fully instrumental with a mix of subtle sounds like voices, piano melodies, guitar distortions, and ambient sounds all perfectly fit into wide musical passages. All the sounds are ornamented with plain but delicate percussions which makes it more accessible than other bands in this genre.

I feel this album, like many other in post-rock, needs to be listened and understood as a whole and not as a group of individual tracks. There's a kind of evolution through the music and an implicit concept where sadness and anger converges.

In conclusion, if you are an open-minded and patient person you will find in CODY a really interesting and enjoyable album. Either way of you are looking for symphonic arrangements, complex riffs and virtuosity post-rock is not for you.

Personally, I enjoy a lot this album which I consider an exceptional recording and hope exploring into more post-rock bands eventually. So why my rating is only 3 stars? Well, not every album you enjoy is a masterpiece. I think this album is not recommended for every kind of taste.

GOOD PROGRESSIONS!!!
