I remember the first time I watched a Sigur Ros video. I remember an apocalyptical kindergarten, where kids acted like kids running around ashes and snow from the nuclear winter. There we have the tension of the whole album: a celebration of innocence and life even in the most unrelenting spaces. In the Ambiental sounds that create darkness, Jonsi's voice grows.

Got into this Icelandic band in 2018 and enjoy their ambient electronic sound. Who cares if you cant understand the words - often he isn't even using Icelandic words - it's more about the feel. This isn't a dire album unless you want to feel dire - place your own emotions onto the soundscape.

Everything on this album sounds the same, and I can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

From JulianR
The most brooding Sigur Ros piece I have found so far. It seems slower, heavier, and more spacious than "Aegetis Byrjum" (or however its spelled), and all that along with being darker compared to "Takk...", my personal favorite.

I loved Ágætis Byrjun, but found this pretty boring, and I'm not sure why.

I did really enjoy three or four other Sigur Ros albums. However, this one I feel is almost too Sigur Ros, its just a tad boring at times. The second half of the album is definitely stronger for me.

I don't want to absolutely love sigur ros and put all of their albums on my top 100, but once you start listening to an album by them..you get in this lull..and the atmosphere is so pretty and you feel calm and ahh..I love it..im going to see them live too for the first time in a month..Super Excited!!

I've changed my mind. After listening to this a tonne after a signifigant loss in my life, this is a beautiful and healing record. I'm grateful.
