had my first listen a bit earlier. hmm, i love Mogwai and i think Rave Tapes is a largely pretty decent, if a bit underwhelming album (mainly didn’t deliver on the promise of Remurdered but i still think there’s plenty to like on there). like others said this one’s got some really good tracks at the start and end, but the middle is definitely a bit long and boring.
a lot of those tracks feel a bit more soundtrack than studio album. it reminds me a lot of Atomic actually, which i found didn’t really do much for me on its own, but sounded great with the film. only one listen in so i’ll see if it grows on me.
Party in the Dark is still fantastic.
