In contrast to their bold and noisy debut Young Team, Come On Die Young is very reserved in tone, with the only song having any kind of climax being the penultimate track Christmas Steps.

Mogwai's second album, released in 1999, is getting a reissue with a bounty of bonus material that includes demos and the Travels in Constants EP. On Come On Die Young, Mogwai went about becoming the most sullen, brooding post-rock band they could possibly be. Though few of their songs contain actual words, Mogwai have always been fond of big statements. Having emerged during the late-1990s post-rock boom, the Scottish quintet used every means possible to distance themselves from the sullen stereotype that defined so many instrumental art-rock brooders of their era. EP titles were turned.
Come On Die Young is a great album in my opinion, the Punk Rock/Cody intro is awesome, along with Ex-Cowboy and a personal favourite of mine - Christmas Steps, which is massive. The rest of the tracks aren't so much tracks I want to hear on their own specifically, but I think they all go quite well when you sit down and listen clear through. I'm using this as my second listening expierience with Mogwai, I'm still impressed. At the moments its holding up to Young Team (but I'm not even half way done). I'll probably check out Happy Songs next. These guys are pretty awesome.
Come on Die Young (also known as CODY), is the second full-length studio album by the Scottish Instrumental rock band Mogwai, released on 29 March 1999 by Chemikal Underground. It is somewhat different from the rest of Mogwai's work because of its reserved tone. The album's second track, "Cody" is much more like a traditional pop song than most of the band's repertoire.
Too much, too soon" is a tattered rock & roll cliché, but it continues to tell the tale of many young bands, such as Glasgow's acclaimed post-rock collective Mogwai. Usually, the phrase is hauled out to describe an intoxicated downward spiral by bands that had too much success all at once, but Mogwai suffered too much praise - too many accolades from critics, too much reverence from underground hipsters.
