About this album

Mr. Beast is the fifth full-length studio album by the Scottish post-rock group Mogwai.

The album’s title stemmed from an incident where Barry Burns and Dominic Aitchison landed in Florida to start a tour with The Cure in 2005, when they saw a taxi driver standing outside the airport holding a sign that said “Mr. and Mrs. Beast” which, after a 10-hour flight, was “funnier than life itself”.

    Probably my favourite out of the last decade of releases. Semen stains the tabletops [2].

    Only one word to describe it: Masterpiece.

    Outstanding record, ugly artwork. I really love the music, but a great artwork always makes an album perfect for me, so this is only 99,9% perfect.

    so i know we're al supposed to worship this band for Come on Die Young and Young team...but this album is a fucking rock masterpiece.... worthy of inclusion in any discussion of Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones or The Flaming Lips or King Crimson or Acid Mothers Temple...this album puts them among the bands I'd send to an alien civilization to teach them about humanity and all our weaknesses and triumphs...

    Great album...seamless. Reminds me so much of 2006. Shit cover? Wtf? It's nowhere near that bad as to call it out.

    loved nearly everything they've done - and from a long time back - but this LP is just phenomenally awesome.

    A couple of the later tracks don't thrill me, but in general I think this album is very good.
