i guess the best way to describe this music is to say it sounds like mogwai, but it reaches heights of beauty that mogwai rarely achieve. to put it simply, mono have with a single album become everything that mogwai ever wanted to be. comparisons to the likes of godspeed, you black emperor! and a silver mt. zion are right on. many songs, even those over 12 minutes lost, consist of a single repeated phrase, building in complexity and power into a climactic flurry of notes. this is minimalism at its finest.
