    To distinguish between the original 2003 PIAS pressing and the 2013 repress:

    Comparing both copies, the green line at the top of the front color in the original pressing (this one) is a lighter shade than the 2013 repress, and it's smaller in width. The red line at the bottom in the original pressing slopes a bit upward from left to right, while it doesn't really do that in the 2013 repress

      The Scottish band Mogwai is known to live to be able to produce a huge volume. Many a visitor of a concert of the Laurieston company will also complete with squeaky and can still enjoy the sound ' binnenshoofds ' long wall that the post-rockers. Post-rock in this case that Mogwai widely drawn out, dreamy, mostly instrumental songs that slowly to a climax loading worked often consists of screeching guitars. On Happy Songs For Happy People (2003) follows Mogwai this same principle. The downside is only that when the listener at home the cd Setup little remains of the impact the music live has no doubt: can the average stereo system just not hard enough. The advantage of this is that the listener now can concentrate on the songs themselves, and who are often very beautiful. Like Moses? I Amn't with cello and electronic beats, or I Know You Are But What Am I? in which the piano melody is accompanied by soft synthesizer beeps and a drum machine. Mogwai has depth and nuance and this makes Happy Songs For Happy People an ideal album to listen with headphones.
