    There are literally a few good songs, and that's it. There's nothing approaching greatness, and if it had been recorded with lesser-quality sound, it would be a believable first album from the 90s before they were any good. Y'know, the kind that's pre-recording contract that gets released years later to cash in on whatever success they've had? But it's competent background music, I guess.

    The Scots post-rockers who will outlast them all. [March 2011, p. 100]

    The cumulative effect can be like listening to a church choir doing canons while simultaneously crushing OCs on your bicuspids, one at a bloody time.

    Yeah, it's been done before, but Mogwai have an astounding command of the songwriting chops necessarily to do it right, which they've remarkably done yet again without sounding in the least but stale. [Feb 2011, p.66]
