UncutFeb 17, 2021Bristles with the unruly energies that enlivened their younger incarnations. [Mar 2021, p.32]
Feb 18, 2021As expected, the album’s only low moment comes with the introduction of vocals on ‘Richie Sacramento’. Thankfully, this doesn’t last long. The group are soon back on top of things with the majestic ‘Drive The Nail’ and we’re instantly transported back to their uniquely-formed wonderland.
Feb 17, 2021While these tracks aren’t necessarily bad by any set definition, it’s worth looking at them through a critical scope and for grand moments like these that once carried so much weight early in their career, we have to begin asking ourselves just how many times can a group reduplicate their sound before their efforts simply become white noise.

Its a total masterpiece from start to finish. I absolutely loved tracks like "To the Bin My Friend, Tonight We Vacate Earth" and "It's What I Want To Do, Mum"… Expand
Feb 21, 2021Superbly consistent album that includes all of the good stuff e.g trademark quiet/loud song progression but also adds layers of electronicsSuperbly consistent album that includes all of the good stuff e.g trademark quiet/loud song progression but also adds layers of electronics and cinematic strings that they’ve developed in their excellent soundtrack work. Mogwai have always been great at creating emotions and this album needs to be experienced live at some point (hopefully)!
Two of the many highlights for me are the vulnerable sounding vocals on Richie Sacramento and the driving synth on Dry Fantasy. The contributions by the guest musicians also provide some new and interesting sounds on Midnight Flit and Pat Stains.
It’s recognisable as Mogwai of course but sounds fresh and relevant, and is never just about simply reusing what has worked in the past.
As a fellow Scot I’m really proud of the way that they keep pushing themselves and developing their sound. Another great one lads!… Expand
Feb 24, 2021It is from the creation of a kind of "no place" with its non-linear songs that Mogwai established its space. A status of untouchable. InsteadIt is from the creation of a kind of "no place" with its non-linear songs that Mogwai established its space. A status of untouchable. Instead of transforming feelings into direct songs, what the band did, over a little over 20 years of career, was to create between the lines. And because of that, the experience of a Mogwai performance is so lonely. The journey is interior. "As the Love Continues" have all this. Thanks, guys!… Expand
