Come On Die Young is the second studio album by Scottish post-rock band Mogwai. The album was released on 29 March 1999 by Chemikal Underground. Songs for Come On Die Young were written by the band members at home or together in the rehearsal room. Wanting a sparser sound, Mogwai drew influences from Seventeen Seconds by The Cure and Spiderland by Slint as well as Low, Nick Drake and The For Carnation
On Come On Die Young, Mogwai went about becoming the most sullen, brooding post-rock band they could possibly b. 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 melodic, slo-mo album of increments and repeating intervals, where changes are subtle but no less drastic. It is a markedly different album to Mogwai's transcendent debut - where Young Team celebrates the wide open spaces, CODY is an altogether more agorophobic affair. A lot of this is down to the production - less distortion on the guitars, more keyboards and a flatter, echoless drum sound - but the songs are more muted, less volatile, though still incredible and intense in places. Punk Rock is Mogwai's mission statement up front: Iggy Pop slaughtering the misconceptions of middle America while the boys perform their brand of soulful alchemy in the background
Come On Die Young, the Glasgow band’s second album proper, proved a different kind of brooding beast. Its simmering peaks seethed often into soothing horizons of fragile beauty. Post-rock seems a paltry classification for such a dynamic sound (although usually they’re lumped into the genre). Like similarly inclined Icelandic band Sigur Ros, Mogwai’s dynamism stretches far beyond the reach of simple descriptors-songs are still structured, but given more freedom to wander as far as possible from the confines of a simple chorus and verse. Even slowcore crooner Cody (the only track on Come On to feature vocals, and hushed ones at that), defied traditional pop convention, its strummed guitars advancing at a steady glacial crawl.
