Album Notes
Mondo are a four piece alternative post rock band from London, England. They have been making their own pathways through the Alt-Rock scene for a number of years now....

Having released three e.p.s on their own label, Moof Records, we present to you their second long playing release...

Before The Fall.

Ripitup 5 STARS
More than just a CD, this is a work of art, beautiful, fragile and addictive. Before The Fall is the second album for the British based group. It pulls you in from the very first riff of Slowstar and holds you in its grip until the last chords of Big Seven. The songs combine beautifully layered, well crafted songs, with a certain amount of angst and emotion and it works brilliantly. Some of the tracks remind me of our very own Jakob, with textured guitar noise taking precedent over lyrical content, although those tracks are nicely tempered by the more lyrically based songs. Mondo seem capable of producing amazing, hook-laden rock songs like Something Else and Against the Numbers and equally good slower tracks like Slowstar and Avoid the Void making it a rewarding and enjoyable listen. ***** (5 stars)

Lyndon Walker


......Repeated plays will reward and you'll soon find the likes of instrumental seven-minute opener 'Slowstar' and the more conventional (as post-rock goes) soundscapes of 'This Is All Wrong' and 'Las Luces' burrowing their way into your consciousness in ways that a three minute pop song never could. This, we all agree, is a good thing.

Adrian Read

Once in a while a CD comes along which is very special indeed. Today is one of those days. This is an amazing harmonious adventure.................All in all this is atmospheric masterpiece, so unique and wonderful in every way. One of the records of the year so far. This is an adventure that everyone should go on.

Find this record, do what you have to-Before the Fall might be the unknown classic of 2004.

This record wakes some serious waves. Definitely a summer record, a driving record, a road trip record - it is deeply inviting.

moody....but beautiful

Drowned In Sound
Quite genuinely, the potential on display here is utterly staggering
