    When the drums kick in, I always get the feeling of big tension falling of me. It is relaxing to listen to this track, although it makes me think about a million things at the same time. I love the Glockenspiel and the production, I love the song title and I love the calm guitarriff quietly playing throughout the track like a constant source of fortitude and hidden power. My only gripe about this song is it´s length, but perhaps that is what finally makes it perfect. Best Track on Hawk. We all have to thank Mogwai for their brilliance.
