In my view if only one Mogwai disc graces your collection this arguably should be it. Unlike many albums that are immediately likable but fade quickly, something about Ten Rapid endures and gains strength with every listen. Maybe it's the haunting melodies that swim gracefully through crashing waves of noise, or the dynamic shadings that go from meloncholic whispers to ripping chaos and then settle again into deep blue washes of calm. This disc has managed to just beat Mogwai's Young Team to the CD player almost every time on the strength of pieces like "Tuner", where the simple chord changes deliver goosebumps, and "End", where the deeply beautiful theme of "Helicon 2" is reworked into a masterpiece of subtle profundity. Definitely a "must have".

The whole CD is definitely nice, but I find myself skipping over 'Angles v. Aliens' 'I Am Batman' and 'Tuner' most of the time. Fine songs, but not the best. I could (and have) listen(ed) to 'Helicon 2' for hours. 'Summer' is excellent, much better than the remix on Young Team. 'Helicon 1' is very good, if a little forced, always putting me in the mind of the home of the muses. 'Ithaca' gets pretty heavy in a good way, a little different from any other Mogwai I've heard. 'A Place for Parks' is pleasant and just disoncerting enough to warrant repeat listenings. 'End' is damn cool.

I wouldn't recommend this as an intro to Mogwai- Young Team or Government Commissions would be better, I think. But the Helicons, Ithaca, End, and Summer are high up on my short list of favorite songs. Anyone who likes other Mogwai would almost surely not regret having bought this.

After listening to thousands of noise records (mostly Sonic Youth, Screaming Trees and Shonen Knife) I realize this is one of the genere's most valuable piece. Mogwai presents a form of noise never seen before quite much like this: cymbals creating a pleasant and warm atmosphere, drums only keeping you notice of their existance with one or two soft beats every once in a while, guitars played very sofly as well so that you can understand this is a record to listen to at 5 in the morning; but then all of a sudden the guitars start howling a distorted but beautifully melodic cacophony and the snare drum make it's first appearances. The last drops or rage are dripping from your cheeck, your pillow gets wet from crying, but there it is, Mogwai's Ten Rapid, giving you a beautiful reason not to go for it. A reason to stay alive at least to see the sun rise up, listening to "Helicon 2" or any other of the most beautiful songs...
The perfect balance between adrenalin and a dream for cold weather.

I know, I know. I should like Young Team. I should like Come On Die Young. But I can't help but feel that some of Mogwai's best material is on this disc. The beautiful "Summer", the powerful "Ithica", and of course the classic "Helicon 1" are all brilliant pieces of mogwai's catalogue. Don't be hatin' this disc - I purchased this mid-way through my mogwai listening career and was not dissapointed at all.

2 1/2 stars

Even before an official debut, these young lads from scotland were already proving their relationship with music far exceeded their peers..Yes this is probally the least amazing of Mogwai's catalouge, but within the subtlties you see the ingrediants that would help make Mogwai one of the standout bands of the new millenium..This album has more breezy, relaxed tracks then what we are used to dealing with when plunging into the abyss with these guys, however the essence of the band and it's die hard philosphy of letting a composition breath as long as it needs to is in full effect. Amazing that a band so young could be so sincere in it's goal of pure audio immersion.

A great display of what mogwai is all about. Good for an intro to mogwai or for the long time fan.
