Band: MOGWAI (Scotland)
Active: Since 1995
Album: AS THE LOVE CONTINUES – 10th LP
Producer: Dave Fridmann
Released: 19th February 2021 – Order facilities here
Exactly 25th years ago this day the band released their
debut single Tuner / Lower. No coincidence I guess.
NME verdict: “The Scots paint widescreen scenes of beauty and movingly pay
tribute to the late musician David Berman, though these songs are more suited
to the stage… ‘As The Love Continues’ is an album that opens beautifully but falls
short at times during its second half. Then again, the whole record works so much
better in a live setting – and will continue to do so when Mogwai finally hit the
road again.” Full review here. Score: 3/5.
Turn Up The Volume says: I don’t agree with NME. The Scots’ excel here with
a series of amplified symphonies – mostly instrumental – boggling your mind
and your senses. Impressive score! No doubt about that! Check your ears NME.
