4 stars This album was a very pleasant listening experience to me, as there are lots of musical elements which I like present on this album. The band has managed to create a very strong emotional load on their music, and the overall feeling is melancholic and peaceful. There was a small joke in the ending of the album, presenting maybe "the happy people" whom this music is made to. I personally found it as a bit irritating ending, as it broke the album's style and aesthetic line, which probably was the intended meaning of this addition. Maybe I'm just a bit humorless person. This was my first album from Mogwai which I heard, and the second post rock album along with Sigur Rós's "Ágaetis Byrjun", so I'm not experienced listener of this kind of music. But these two albums have aroused my interest towards the genre, and I'll check out some other post-rock releases in the future. Especially Godspeed You! Black Emperor seems a very promising band from this genre.
