Top 50 Debut Albums - No.42 "Young Team" Mogwai (1997)

Mogwai have come a long way since this album was released, they are one of those rare bands who seem to get better with age but I still have a huge amount of love for their debut release.

Young Team is largely instrumental and features two epic mainstays of their live set. Like Herod nails the quiet/loud dynamic, lulling the listener into a false sense of security before erupting into a wall of noise around the three minute mark. Mogwai Fear Satan ends the album in dramatic style with 16 minutes of sonic magnificence.
