"Rock Action" took me on a depressing journey that "Come on Die Young" only wished it provided. Sonically, this record is fantastic, providing noisy atmospheres with calmer melodies and when the lyrics pop up, they're hauntingly beautiful. It also contains some of Mogwai's best work to date!

Fav Tracks: Take Me Somewhere Nice, Two Rights Make One Wrong, You Don'T Know Jesus, Dial: Revenge, Sine Wave

Least Fav Track: Robot Chant

Stuck In The 2000's.

The sonics of this album were absolutely mind numbing, drawing me into a trance from which I did not depart until the album had reached completion. This album is intrinsic to turn of the millenium experimental rock, a true staple of some of the band's best work.
