2011-02-22hardcore will never die, but you will last week was the release of mogwai's latest "hardcore will never die, but you will". (one of their best album titles, i think.) i pre-ordered it from subpop, to get the deluxe edition, which includes a pair of earplugs with case. it's the perfect bonus item for a mogwai release, since they are known to be *loud* in concert.
i got the parcel in the mail on friday.
not only does the deluxe edition include a second disc with a 23-minute track, the packaging is quite nice, bound like a hardcover book.
i've been busy lately, so i only got a chance to listen to the album twice, as background music. at first listen, i was not feeling it. i liked it a bit the second time, discovering some interesting sounds. i'll have to spend some time listening to this album with earphones to really appreciate it.
i haven't listened to the second disc yet. at 23 minutes, the track should be epic.
