CRITIC REVIEWS

83
A.V. Club

Yes, it is a long way from home, but KIN’s brightest moments suggest Mogwai is still on the right path.

80
The Skinny

KIN provides their first opportunity lending their talents to a major Hollywood production, and given the run of form Mogwai are on just now it has come at the perfect time.

80
The Line of Best Fit

KIN is the uncommon soundtrack that doesn’t require any context other than its own to command more than passive attention.

70
Loud and Quiet

As a demonstration of Mogwai’s range as they push on into their third decade of making music together, ‘KIN’ holds up as an admirably strong minor work for what has become a major band.

70
Drowned in Sound

By the high standards of Mogwai’s soundtrack work – and therefore their work in general – it’s a bit tread watery. But it’s still bloody Mogwai, a band never less than magical.

70
Clash

‘KIN’ is their first feature film score and it’s as harrowing and breath-taking as hoped for.

70
AllMusic

Where Mogwai's other scores pushed their boundaries, KIN simply restates their strengths -- which, fortunately, are as formidable as ever.

69
Pitchfork

The Scottish group’s action flick soundtrack lacks their usual maximalist peaks but offers impressionistic sketches.
