    This was all written and recorded by one guy. Pretty impressive.

    The snow has me on a Mogwai kick today, their first few albums/EPs are so damn good. I like their more recent stuff too but it’s hard to beat Young Team.

    Absolutely perfect soundtrack to a blizzard. I ran through each Flies are Spies albums while shoveling out, god damn breathtaking

    Final Quiet is so good, truly incredible

    Japanese art-rock (w/vocals), which has enough overlap with post-rock that you won't dare question me for posting this here.

    Hardcore Will Never Die, but You Will also rules. It was the first album of theirs that I heard and White Noise, San Pedro, and You’re Lionel Ritchie are some of my favorite Mogwai tracks.

    The Hawk is Howling is where I hopped on so it could be personal affinity for the album but man, when the beginning of I'm Jim Morrison starts through the end (including the 3 bonus tracks) is so so damn good

    My only exposure to Mogwai is The Returned score. Which is absolutely incredible.

    I was also late to the Mogwai party. Hardcore was the first album of theirs I got into.

    Mogwai is good but I can’t hate on someone for not getting into them. They have definitely had some ups and downs in their career but they will always get respect from me.

    Ooh, are we sharing our bad post rock opinions?

    Every Explosions In The Sky album after The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is underwhelming.
