Product Description:

For its score to ZIDANE: A 21ST CENTURY PORTRAIT, a documentary on the French football (soccer) player Zinedine Zidane, the Scottish post-rock act Mogwai unveiled a set of largely improvised, guitar-driven instrumental pieces. Standing in sharp contrast to the uncharacteristically brief and dense songs on Mogwai's preceding album, MR. BEAST, the expansive tracks on ZIDANE (see the wistful "Black Spider" and the beautiful "7:25") echo the slowly drifting numbers on the group's breakthrough outing, COME ON DIE YOUNG. While not an essential part of the Mogwai discography, ZIDANE does showcase the band's skill at crafting mesmerizing minimalist pieces, and, like Explosions in the Sky's Friday NIGHT LIGHTS soundtrack, it proves an unusually thoughtful and serene backdrop for a sports-oriented film.
