A lovely ambient bubble bath
More similar to the side-project Jonsi & Alex.

Was a little to slow for me the first time I gave it a listen but as I've gotten older I've found myself coming back again and again. Definitely more ambient and less rock but still a beautiful album none the less.

Visiting your grandparents house; you sit around the fireplace and you look back at your most precious childhood memories through the vintage photo album.

The songs are lush and dense, and, though they do often feature vocals, the lyrics are unintelligible. They may be in Icelandic or they may be in Hopelandic, which is basically pretty sounding gibberish (but honestly just sounds like more Icelandic to me). Like every one before it, is pretty and best enjoyed through headphones.

i might not be a big fan of the third song but this album is some real nice easy listening

Fjögur Píanó is one of the best Sigur Ros tracks, and maybe my favorite music video ever.

For me, this is a fantastic album. Maybe not as great as (), but I loved it since the first listening.
