Generally a really pleasant listen. Sadly I see tons and tons of unused potential in some of these songs (especially on some on the material in the Deluxe Edition, which I purchased).
While there are a few really amazing gems on here, (mainly "R U Still In 2 It?" and "Tracy", but I also enjoy "Like Herod" and "Mogwai Fear Satan" a lot) many songs aren't developed enough to stand on their own.
While enjoyable, they like to linger too long on one part, without offering much of a pay-off or a development of those musical ideas.
One of the best examples for this is "Young Face Gone Wrong", the first song from the second disk of the Deluxe Version.
It sports a truly amazing melody, which doesn't go anywhere. It just hurts seeing the potential for something I could LOVE, but it going to waste...
...so that song is basically this record in a nutshell.
also: I noticed that the remastered version, which I bought was mixed with EXTREME overbearing low-end. Had to manually adjust the levels on all of those tracks down by about 4dB I'm guessing from top of the head, to get into managable territorys.
I haven't listened to this album in years, I almost forgot how wonderful it is, sometimes it's so beautiful it makes me want to cry. Fav tracks: Tracy, R u Still in 2 it.
The first half was mind-blowing. The second half kind of bored me. I'm definitely going to give it a few more spins though. The overall sound is wonderful.
Post rock classic, for sure.
Wow. Just wow. Mogwai's debut is a post-rock masterpiece. Godspeed You! Black Emperor delivers a more transcending sound, this one is more descending feel. What I mean by that is that it brings you more centered and feel like one with everything around you. Powerful album.
The things that I don't like of Mogwai Young Team are the bass lines. Too much metal-style for me.
Very good. Between the post-rock masterpieces indeed
Amazing debut that took post rock to new levels that the likes of Slint and Tortoise had only previously hinted at. Bought this along with several other albums around Christmas 97 after it had charted quite highly in NME's end of year chart. I hadn't heard a single note before buying it and it blew me away, the other CD's I'd bought never got a look in. Every song hits the mark but it's the songs that bookend the album that really hit me. Mogwai Fear Satan is a 3 chord song that lasts 17 minutes but when it finishes you just want to listen to it again. Genius.
Don't let them being Celtic fans put you off. Go and see them live, but take ear protectors. They mage the windows rattle in the Liverpool venue where I saw them.
