Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, on Low (NYLON Guys March 2011):
"This is a real landmark record, especially the second side of it, all the stuff with Brian Eno, the soundscapes. It almost goes beyond regular rock music and it becomes a neo-classical sound collage—it’s amazing. When we started out and people were talking about us and Tortoise and saying it was 'post-rock,' one of the reasons I always hated the term was because people have been making pretty fucking far-out music on rock records for a long time. So to suddenly say this was our idea—if we’d actually embraced it—would make us look like total idiots. I’ve always been quite conscious of what has happened and how music has changed. I would never be unambitious and not try to do something really good, but to try and take credit for redefining the prevalent music of the last 100 years [laughs]? It’s never gonna have a happy ending."
