Even though Agaetis Byrjun is their best album IMO, but this is my current favorite Sigur Ros album.

Best Sigur Ros record yet. I know.. how preposterous!? This album remains accessible while giving us this new tortured near-hellish type sound all while giving us glimmers of the blissful Sigur Ros we all know and love. This album is tighter thematically too (not sure how many people follow Sigur Ros lyrics considering "()"). There are so many sonic features on this album that should come off as gimmicky (transformer noises Michael Bay would be proud of, flawless harmonization with wolf howls) but are executed so god damn well I can't help but admit its actually awesome. Wow.

I really liked this album. Sigur Ros really brought it despite the lineup change.

I've put the hours in trying to like this band over the years but it's just not happening for me. They just leave me cold for some reason, I should like them as I really love bands like Mogwai, Godspeed etc but I just get nothing with this lot. I find it OK but all very forgettable :(

A change, but it keeps the core of their style. Some brilliant moments, as you'd expect from them - best album since ().

I was going to react harshly to this record, but then I read the comments and I feel as though I need to give it another shot. I was certainly expecting something else.
