Prog Reviewer
3 stars With "Young Team" I'm becoming a bit more disappointed with the genre. I remember the times when freshly discovered GYBE albums seemed to be a revelation for me. Those times are long now. I know the formula - take simple chord progression for bass- guitar, lay two guitars on it and insert drumming. Then throw in there few climaxes and bells on quite places ;) This formula still works, and MOGWAI were among the first bands who discovered it back in 1997. Best track here is certainly the closer - "Mogwai fear Satan" (whatever what the name means). It may have been lasting forever, but it lasts 16 minutes. Beautiful flute, which adds new colours to rather bleak palette of MOGWAI's Post Rock. Recommended if you're genre's fan - it's a Must for you. Not recommended if you're only to discover Post Rock - you may think something like "is this all they can offer?". No, this is NOT all. Look deeper!
