Review Summary: Good PostRock, atmospheric, soudtrack album. Effective sound,

English Review :
Every Country’s Sun of Mogwai. This 2017 album contains 11 tracks for 56:02 music that’s sorted by Google Music as Music Alternative/Indy. The reason I wanted to criticize this album is that it is part of the top 10 albums of Notes Review in 10th position. Here is the link to the video clip of this top 10: https://www.youtube.com/watch"v=X6x-LlAYI-A. I would call this album cinematic soundtrack, very atmospheric, kind of music that I would put in the background of a video sequence of a parachute jump, a moving documentary or movie, etc. Also, we feel that this music is akin to groups like the Tea Party. This music could also be experimental pop quality in that sense I would see U2 have this kind of music under a beautiful pop rock melody, in this sense Mogwai may be a window to the pop-rock of the future. The sound of keyboards, guitars are
original and never fall into the cliché. There is good crescendo throughout the album. As it is an atmospheric album, we often fall in repetitiveness. One of the disappointments of the album is the very punk/grunge distortion sound … i like this sound less for a distortion, because it seems to me deaf. There is a good balance between electronic and acoustic. We feel that there is a work on the sound level. We try here to be minimalist, but to use effective sounds and it is successful.
French Review :
Every Country’s Sun de Mogwai. Cet album de 2017 contient 11 titres pour 56:02 de musique qui est classée par Google Music comme Musique alternative/Indy. La raison pour laquelle je voulais faire la critique de cet album c’est qu’il fait partie du top 10 des albums de Notes Review * la 10e position. Voici le lien vers la séquence vidéo de ce top 10 : https://www.youtube.com/watch"v=X6x-LlAYI-A. Je qualifierais cet album de trame sonore cinématique, très tmosphérique, genre de musique que je mettrais en trame de fond d’une séquence vidéo d’un saut en parachute, d’un documentaire émouvant, etc. Aussi, on sent que cette musique est apparentée * des groupes comme Tea Party. Cette musique pourrait être aussi qualité de pop expérimentale en ce sens que je verrais bien un U2 avoir ce genre de musique sous une belle mélodie pop rock, en ce sens Mogwai est peut-être une fenêtre vers le pop-rock du futur. Le son des claviers, des guitares sont originales et ne tombent jamais dans le cliché. Il y a de bons crescendo tout au long de l’album. Comme c’est un album atmosphérique, on tombe souvent dans la répétitivité. L’une des déceptions de l’album est le son de distorsion très punk/grunge... j’aime moins ce son pour une distorsion, car il me semble sourd. Il y a un bon équilibre entre électronique et acoustique. On sent qu’il y a un travail au niveau sonore. On essaie ici d’être minimaliste, mais d’utiliser des sons efficaces et c’est réussi.
