Mogwai - Happy Songs For Happy People
Mogwai are such a consistent band it's hard to pick a highlight from their 20 year plus career. Having said that, 2003's Happy Songs For Happy People could well be their masterpiece (it's certainly Stuart Braithwaite's favourite). It's the perfect balance of their slow building atmospherics and those crashing climaxes that make them so exciting. It's about time it was back on vinyl! Must listen tracks -- Ratts Of The Capital, Hunted By A Freak and Killing All The Flies.
