Reseña de álbum

At the time of its release, Mogwai's second album was as polarizing as it was unexpected. Instead of returning to the extreme dynamic shifts of their singles collection Ten Rapid and their first full-length, Young Team, the band explored elongated, implosive territory that ultimately became as vital to their music as their dramatic softs and louds, especially on works like Mr. Beast and Rave Tapes. Even the album's ironic title — borrowed from Glasgow gang jargon — signaled the sardonic sense of humor that Mogwai revisited on Rock Action and Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. Where their free-form noise improvisations were immediately enthralling on Young Team and Ten Rapid, here each song blends into the next, creating the impression of one endless track that teeters between deliberately dreamy crawls and random bursts of noise. Still, the sheer sweep of "Chocky" and "Christmas Steps" makes them instant standouts, as well as blueprints for the more intricate albums the band made in the 2000s and onward. A transitional album, Come on Die Young revealed Mogwai as a band unafraid of shaking things up even in the face of success — an approach that served them well throughout their career.

Dismissed by critics and the like as a sophomore slump...

They were and are still wrong. Come on Die Young is Mogwai's best album.

Undoubtedly their finest

A collection of absolute moody brilliance in 12 cathartic tracks. Mogwai went a little darker after Young Team but it was the best way to go: this album is fantastic. Alternating between slow, eerie, chilling waves and intense explosions of harsh noise, Come On Die Young is a brilliant statement from top to bottom. The whole album plays as one, so it's hard to pick favorite tracks, but there is a distinct pattern to the album: the first half of the album is a lot of the slower stuff, slowly building up the tempo and volume until we hit the climax in the three penultimate songs, "Ex-Cowboy," "Chocky," and "Christmas Steps." I don't want to ruin everything, but I will say that the climax of "Christmas Steps" is the single moment of music that really defines life for me. It's that chillingly good. Anyway, you ought to pick this album up with no reservations. It's the perfect evolution of their original sound and contains a sort of rock integrity because it doesn't rely on electronic textures to be a truly banging album. That's not a dig on their later albums so much as a compliment to this one. This $9.99 is well worth it.

Absolutely brilliant!

I have been listening to Mogwai for quite some time. I have to say the are one of those bands that makes me appreciate music as it is today. I really see them as pioneers to something that is unexplainable and really takes it to another level. Don't expect song lyrics to this band, as they are some of the greatest musicians/composers of our time. Don't die young, cause you'll probably miss out on some new Mogwai.

The cosmic post-rock band Mogwai were formed in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1996 by guitarist/vocalist Stuart Braithwaite, guitarist Dominic Aitchison, and drummer Martin Bulloch, longtime friends with the goal of creating "serious guitar music." Toward that end, they added another guitarist, John Cummings, before debuting in March 1996 with the single "Tuner," a rarity in the Mogwai discography for its prominent vocals; the follow-up, a split single with Dweeb titled "Angels vs. Aliens," landed in the...
