List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

Mogwai is known to many as one of the best post-rock bands. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Mogwai albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1996, Mogwai released their debut, Mogwai Young Team (1997) and much more recently, released Every Country's Sun (2017) which earned the band its best reviews yet.

This Mogwai discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Mogwai albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Mogwai singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Mogwai album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Mogwai album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

List is made up of albums like Mr. Beast (2006) and Rock Action (2001). This list of popular Mogwai CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
