better late than never!
I think Mogwai are a very consistent band. a couple of naff albums in there but generally their quality is really consistent, this and the fact that it's hard to remember the song titles means it's difficult to pick out highlights!
I would definitely agree with Helicon, Mogwai Fear Satan, and Cody being in there, I'd also pick out some other choice cuts such as Christmas Steps, 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong, Rano Pano, and if we are going with deep cuts- Tracey from the first album is beautiful and atmospheric.
I really don't get the big deal with Friend of The Night. The band seem to love it as they still play it regularly, but to me it's their 'Walking With Jesus'- bit of a drag as they have played it to death! Feel similarly about Hunted By A Freak.
