Mogwai never seemed like a particularly good bet to age well. They came out of the gate as a band that Meant Something to many people, namely fans of heavy guitar music and rock critics. They established a clear, identifiable, and exciting new sound, but their latest LP- Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will- doesn't change the pattern Mogwai have set for themselves on recent, often middling, releases: There are some anthemic guitar blasts, some prettily drifting comedowns, and one or two vocal tracks
Album comes with two Bonus Tracks and Exclusive Guitar Pick. Rights Society: JASRAC.
Hardcore Will Never Die has a good amount of brawn to it but ultimately falls into the category of breathtaking music that isn't made too often. might even satisfy some of those still obssessed with Young Team.
In this case, that's a good thing. Happy Songs is my fave Mogwai album, but this may replace it eventually.
There are moments on Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will when the highly textured mix is scaled back a bit. Letters to the Metro and You're Lionel Richie (at least the first half) are actually fairly stripped down in Mogwai terms, with the true sound of the guitars coming through. It goes to show that this is a band that doesn't necessarily need to rely on effects to capture its trademark sound. Lyrics - 8 This album does feature only a couple of tracks that have words uttered and you can barely understand them at all. Mogwai don't write the songs to deliver a verbal message (at least in this case), as its primary focus does tend to be on the musical arrangements. Overall Impression - 8 If you enjoy lush, dreamy soundscapes, this is the band and album for you.
Mogwai does that on Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, from the title’s bone-dry humor to the band’s reunion with Young Team producer Paul Savage. The musical DNA of Young Team - and its definitive track Like Herod in particular - is everywhere on Hardcore Will Never Die, informing the doomy coda of Too Raging to Cheers as well as opening track White Noise 's graceful melodic arcs, which lure the listener in rather than making a grand statement. Mogwai tease listeners with tantalizing glimpses of their full power as the album progresses with Rano Pano 's shimmering majesty and How to Be a Werewolf 's epic solo, but they save Hardcore Will Never Die's definitive onslaught for last. You’re Lionel Richie combines the driest wit with the heaviest rock - a quintessential Mogwai move - as it builds from quasi-classical guitar figures to a scorching climax.
