The Squeezebox: Mogwai- Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (2011)

15 02 2011

Scottish Post-Rockers release a surprising but welcome album that incorporates new instrumentation and emotion into their repertoire. Adding to their traditional (mostly) Instrumental approach of rising guitar epics with new-found sounds like synthesizers and vocodors. making for a sort of electro-rock on part of the album which makes it lighter and warmer than its predecessors. Granted, it still Rocks like no other, but instead of pummeling the listener into the earth, Hardcore will never… aims for the heavens. Listen to the opener White Noise which feels like flying in an Airplane over the cloud-line or Rano Pano– a slow rocking mammoth of a song fit to accompany a view of mountainous terrain. When all is said and done, this is one of the best Post Rock album this listener has heard in a very long time

88%- Armordillo

The sound quality is pretty bad but this is the best I can do for now. Rano Pano
