Ahh, OK. I've got to listen to some more Sigur Ros, as they're playing Melbourne in August and I'd love another concert to see, so I'm hoping I'll enjoy their stuff. Loved Myrkur on Screwtape's DI IV list, and everything I've heard about them live has been absolutely glowing.

As for Russian Circles, which album do you prefer, Enter or Station?

sweeeeet. i'm gonna have to d/l these slowly. i'm not too familiar with this school's internet policy. vt was crackin down bigtime on d/ling music and movies. so they'd put a cap on how much you could download per day. i'll definitely let you know my opinion though! i'm excited to hear *new* music

like i said in the email, i'd suggest you start with either the second link. it's their most popular period. then the third one, then the first one.

gtis Byrjun has some good songs on it. They're quite nice if you're in the mood for them.


I'm only familiar with Enter because it's all Rhapsody had at the time. It kicked ass though. Great stuff. I've heard Station is superior...?

i think i know what you mean. and yes, there are some songs that sound different from tour to tour, and some like pride that sound the same way

LM and I had a bit of a dispute over what constitutes a good or bad band name.

Mystic Alpacas would be awesome.

I've been meaning to check out that album for weeks now and just haven't gotten around to it. Might've even downloaded it!

Station is softer than Enter for the most part. I would also say it's superior - the song Versus is absolutely stunning.
