The Scottish instrumentalists are justly celebrated for their post-rock flights of fancy and this album is the latest in a long line bound to assault the eardrums when the songs reach the road.
There are moments of atmospheric tenderness -- Letters to the Metro stands out -- but they're at their best when letting loose. You're Lionel Richie is a lengthy excursion in all-out noise, a shape-shifting beast to prove that Mogwai are better exponents of this type of rock than just about anybody.
