Mogwai – Mr Beast (CD Review)

‘Mr Beast’ is everything you should expect from a Mogwai album. The Scottish boys have extended soundscapes and blended delicacy and a raw dirtiness so finely that they are strangely indistinguishable. Their style of languid beginnings often leading to powerful torrents of guitars, keyboards, distortion and drums leaves the listener in a state of peaceful contemplation. To not pay attention is to miss out on the heart of the songs.

Where a lesser band may have created a weak and limp introduction to a chaotically tuneless crescendo Mogwai show their talent and never lose the atmosphere, never have you doubting whether a part works and never leave you wanting. ‘Mr Beast’ is a fine addition to Mogwai’s repertoire and should not be missed.
