    General Commentthis song has so much potential as it builds, but then it's all just wasted as the track ends.
    quite disheartening.

    i'm not very keen on this whole album anyway.

    General Commentcompletely disagree, this and 'i chose horses' are the best tracks on the album, much more, the two of the best tracks of mogwai's career. to me, this song demonstrates a chaotic mode of synchrocy. it's reasoning and saying it doesn't need something...as it grows, it tends to realizes it hasn't needed that something all along and becomes quite frustrated. "auto rock". quite oblivious.

    General CommentAs I logged into my computer this evening it suddenly occured to me that Mogwai's 'Auto Rock' has a melody almost identical to the Windows XP logon sound. I wonder if this was intentional as it is the first song on the track, or if Mogwai subconsciously stole the melody.

    General CommentThey couldn't have been able to choose a song that'd fit more .. It fits perfectly. I finally got some impressions when I'm thinking of this song.

    General CommentExcellent build...

    it might have to do with the "larger issues" of life, or the important things in general. Such as family, deaths occurring, and how all these things are so climatic in our lives.

    General CommentHas anyone heard Breaking away by ratatat? i have a funny feeling ratatat has modivaied (excuess the bad spelling) auto rock a wee bit its not as dramtic, more chilled but still really good. I love listen to auto rock on the bus in the morning gets me pumped up for work total classic.

    The ending doesint feel like the end of the song, which in a way is a dissapointment but still very good, if i had a good song to follow it my morning on ths bus would be complete. It leaves me built up and ready to go... but with nothing to go with....

    i'll dig out glasgow mega snake ( as sujested by blorgazz) see how that goes

    its funny i actully come from glasgow myself werid to think something so epic could come from these streets :)
