    A reflection of the outfit’s independent nature, Les Revenants shows Mogwai succeeding in their aim to replace the typical anxiety-inducing scores of horror flicks with one that urges the viewer to uncover their own fears within the melody.

    The experience is filmic first and foremost, barely for a minute could Les Revenants survive as a stand-alone album, but it’s the curiosity and atmospherics of that leant narrative that compels the listener through the album.

    [The soundtrack is paring] the sound down for wistful and occasionally beautiful miniatures. [May 2013, p.106]
  4. They've done a respectful job of augmenting the atmosphere of melancholy, contemplation and unease.
