2 stars Ten Rapid is a collection of recordings from 1996-1997 by Scottish post rock/ experimental rock act Mogwai. All nine songs on the compilation have been released before in some form or other. Some have appeared on various compilations along other artists music and some have been given away for free a concerts.

Itīs not terribly surprising that the music on Ten Rapid is pretty much in the same vein as on Mogwaiīs debut album Young Team (1997). The quality is not as high though and these songs could easily have been outtakes from the Young Team sessions. There are both mellow parts and more energetic distorted climaxes in the songs and for those who enjoy Young Team this album should hold some value. Iīm more of a casual fan who only really enjoy parts of their discography and Young Team isnīt on the favorite list. So songs that sounds like outtakes from that album does not really suit my taste.

The musicianship is allright and the sound quality ( even though itīs rather unpolished) is OK too.

Ten Rapid is a release for the fans IMO and thatīs the fan who enjoys the early output by Mogwai. Itīs close to a 3 star rating without getting there. 2 stars.

UMUR | 2/5 |
