Drowned in Sound

The result is Mogwai’s most vital release in years; a collection of fully realized pieces that could be the closest they’ll ever come to an unplugged greatest hits.


Mogwai have again produced a soundtrack that stands up as an album in its own right.


The soundtrack album Les Revenants contains not a shred of the terror Mogwai is capable of wreaking, and it works terrifically-- it rarely comes off overly dramatic or leading, and matches the unsettling feel of the show.

The 405

Like so many of the characters on the show, Mogwai have returned as a different iteration of themselves; Les Revenants isn't quite what we've come to expect from them, but then that's the whole point.


Mostly Les Revenants is impressive for showing just how good Mogwai is even when its playing against (a few of) its strengths.

Consequence of Sound

A reflection of the outfit’s independent nature, Les Revenants shows Mogwai succeeding in their aim to replace the typical anxiety-inducing scores of horror flicks with one that urges the viewer to uncover their own fears within the melody.


The experience is filmic first and foremost, barely for a minute could ‘Les Revenants’ survive as a stand-alone album, but it’s the curiosity and atmospherics of that leant narrative that compels the listener through the album.
