    Very consistent and fun album. They're really showing off their strengths as a band going into different styles of music.This is essentially them making a fluid pop album. There is a weak link or two in the 2nd half of the record but overall an above average release.

  1. A more straightforward affair than previous works, and as such suffers from predictability.
  2. Ten years after they first assaulted us, Mogwai remain as vital as ever.
  3. If you like Mogwai for the sounds they make, for their instrumental dynamic and ebbing/flowing moodiness, you'll probably like Mr Beast - there's certainly little to object to. But if you love Mogwai... perhaps Mr Beast isn't for you.
