4 stars One more in line of quality Mogwai album. Similar and different.

It was quite controversial at the time of release, whenever the band corrected their usual sound on it: from ambient soundscapes they turned to better-structure melodic indie-influenced songs. Few years ago it sounded as a crime for their fans, now this album stays as one of their great work.

Time is the best evaluator, even such short as 4 years. And if post-rock wave almost disappeared because of myriads of sound-alike clones today, some bright releases of that genre sound even brighter today.

I don't want to say, that any post-rock influenced by indie sound is a masterpiece, no way! But such a great band as Mogwai is melted there on this album their excellent musicianship and great sound signature with some melodic and more accessible music. The result is successful in my opinion.

Not very representative for Mogwai music in general, this album is great entrance for newcomers not only for Mogwai, but post-rock in whole.

My rating is 3,5 rounded to 4.
