Stereophile Recording of the Month, January 2009! Five stars for Performance and Four 1/2 stars for Sonics!

TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics in the November 2008 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

Mogwai's sixth album continues to showcase the fiercely layered guitars and dynamics of their classic work, and features a new array of rhythms and melodies. These hint more than ever before at their electronic and metal influences. Not only do they remain masters of the eloquently stretched guitar phrase, but they've also expanded the syntax to include a new, almost beat-driven sound.

"Recorded in the west-central Lowlands of Scotland, the album feels spacious despite the dense nature of many of the songs... Careful attention is paid to capturing each instrument with necessary clarity." - Andy Downing, The Absolute Sound, November 2008, Issue 186

"Matador presses all of their albums on 180gm vinyl, and this one is beautifully packaged. The sound on both LP and CD is superb, and no other Mogwai album does justice to the band's dynamic shifts and textural contrasts - the dynamic range here is dizzying." - Stephen Mejias, Stereophile Magazine, January 2009, Vol. 32, No. 1
