  1. Happy Songs finds middle ground between brevity and meandering.
  2. 70
    Refines their grandiose panoramics via electronic gurgles and glitches. [Jul 2003, p.111]
  3. This is Mogwai distilled to their essence, and the result is an album of huge power, emotional depth and feeling, with vocals submerged under a claustrophobic blanket of effects and guitars battling with viola, cello, violin and piano. It's just as Eno as it is S***t, and all the greater for that.
