We have been listening to Sigur Ros for a long time, since ( ) was released. They are a funky band from Iceland (who unsurprisingly sing in Icelandic) who break away from their usual routine in this new cd and dive deep into the acoustic realm. We love this music and have no problem with the fact that we can't understand any of the lyrics. In fact, there is an English song on this cd, and we don't really care for it. The lyrics are captivating, the melodies delicate, and the music mystifying. A great cd to listen to while reading an epic book or working on an intricate project.
Quick vote: No doubt about it, this is a weird album. And yet, we love it.
