Mogwai released their second album Come On Die Young back in 1999 as rock music was on the search to find itself. Eminem appeared with his Slim Shady EP, Red Hot Chilli Peppers released Californication, a hit album but for me one of their most uninspired albums and various US rapper tried to tell us their sorrows from the suburbs. And Mogwai, the post-rock band from Glasgow gave us one the albums of this year. Filled with melancholic guitar experiences that sometimes turned into destructive sound this album is still a classic and worth to be listened, especially in autumn, when it is cold and wet outside these songs show a warmth that other artists seldom reached.

1999? That's pretty terrifying Walter.
