    This might be the one song I would point someone to to get a sense of what Mogwai are all about.

    it's hard to choose a favorite track from mogwai, but this is probably one of their most powerful songs.

    This is such a good song, probably in my top 5 Mogwai songs, yet only my third favorite in this album!

    Btw, looking at the albums and song's title, I can only imagine the hawk flying over the precipice... and contemplating it. That metalesque ending it's just out of this world... <3
