Editorial Reviews

Mogwai was birthed in the halcyon days of the mid-'90s and helped Glasgow become one of the real bright spots in the musical universe again. Not everyone gets Mogwai, but that's what makes them great. Theirs is a majestic, powerful sound where barely a word is spoken yet it is the antithesis of background music. Album and song titles bemuse, confuse and delight in equal measure and live, they are utterly unstoppable. Recorded at Chem 19 studios with producer Paul Savage (who recorded Young Team), Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will is the band's seventh album.

Perhaps I'm a little too biased to write a subjective review.... Mogwai's Mr Beast and The Hawk Is Howling are two of my all-time favorite post-rock albums. (I love Explosions in the Sky too.) Mogwai's earlier stuff meanders, almost to a point where you're thinking, "Is this song ever gonna take off?" "Mr. Beast" and "The Hawk is Howling" seem to have less meandering and more structure -- and more melody. Or, in other words, each track has a definite beginning, a middle, and an ending.

Mogwai's "Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will" is comparable to the aforementioned albums -- which, for me, is great! The songs are more like jams than anything. Each song builds and soars higher than anything you've heard on the radio (and that's ironic because many of the tracks' melodies are infectiously catchy, much like the bull---- you'd hear on the radio).

My favorite track from "The Hawk is Howling" is "The Sun Smells Too Loud" and many of the tracks on "Hardcore..." have a similar, upbeat melody. (Their early stuff isn't characteristically "upbeat," and personally, I prefer the newer, "positive" sound.)

"White Noise," "Mexican Grand Prix," "Rano Pano," and "Death Ray" are all triumphant jams. The magic continues with "San Pedro," "Letters to the Metro," and "George Square Thatcher Death Party." (These Scots always give us great titles.)

"How to be a Werewolf" and "Too Raging to Cheer" offer plenty of variety and "You're Lionel Richie" is a powerful conclusion (a la "We're No Here" on "Mr. Beast").

This album is amazing. The melodies are timeless and the guitars and drums are beautiful (and savage).

THIS is rock music. This album is well-crafted...but as the mix reviews might suggest, it's not for everyone.

The way some people talk, Mogwai shouldn't have bothered releasing anything after 2000. These people are less fortunate than the rest of us and ought to be pitied above all else, because Mogwai have made slabs and slabs of sumptuous, majestic, jaw-dropping, and sometimes downright kickass music that are not on the albums _Mogwai Young Team_ or _Come On Die Young_. Furthermore, in my book, at least, every album Mogwai has done since 2001's _Rock Action_ has been better than the previous album. Yes, Rock Action < Happy Songs < Mr. Beast < Hawk Is Howling < ...would they keep up the streak...? yes! with this year's bracing blast of Mogwai music-love, the endearingly titled _Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will_ pretty much crowns (or, "pwns," if you like) them all.

The opener "White Noise" sets the tone immediately - "Good morning, throw back the curtains, it's 2011!" The first thing to objectively notice is that it's SO much BRIGHTER than 2008's _The Hawk Is Howling_ - which, although containing 10 tracks of glistening, stupendous quality, is a bit of a ponderous behemoth taken as a whole. The 10 tracks of _Hardcore_ all sound pulsating and coruscating with LIGHT, and the listener is immediately drawn into its soundworld. The music does not care whether you want to enjoy it or not; it all OWNS you for its length, and how quickly that length goes by before the obligatorily massive closer "You're Lionel Richie" (perhaps the only relatively predictable thing on this record) caps off the ride with a classic Mogwai build before depositing you back to Earth. Thank you, come again.

_Hawk_ was their first album to have a complete absence of vocals, so it's rather striking to hear them return.

This is not a review of the CD but a warning to anyone considering purchasing the deluxe 2-CD version of this release.

Maybe only my copy was defective, but I felt it necessary to make people aware of a big potential problem with the deluxe version's packaging. The two CDs are housed inside open-top sleeves, one glued to the inside panel of the front cover and one glued to the inside panel of the back. (8 pages of photos and information are bound in between.) The sleeves are of a fairly thick and glossy paper, and they are far, far too tight, making it absolutely impossible to not scratch the discs all to hell while attempting to slide them out for the first time. I always treat my CDs and records with great care (handle by edges only, store cardboard digipacks in plastic retail-style jackets, CDs are never left out loose or in the open, etc.), so I tried with great patience to remove the CDs as carefully as possible, but with no luck. They were bound so tightly by their paper sleeves that simply removing them for the first became an exercise in frustration. Once they were out, they were completely covered with several dozen thin scratches, due to the paper's surface finish and unnecessarily tight fit.

Gee, nothing like ruining brand-new CDs through no fault of your own. Imagine how scratched up they'll become after removing them another two or three times...

If you must purchase this deluxe edition, be prepared to probably ruin the CDs. You may choose to slit a side edge of each sleeve open with an X-Acto to free the CDs more easily - but then you'll damage the packaging. Either way, odds are you're going to own a new - and newly ruined - copy of "Hardcore will Never Die..."
