It's good. It will take awhile to absorb completely.

Here is the revue that inspired me to buy it.
From The Stranger:

****If intense drug highs and great sex that lasts all night didn't already have a soundtrack, Sigur Rs have created one. The Icelandic band's third album is beautiful beyond words, a collection of otherworldly coos and echoes and cold soundscapes that warm and swell into a heavy fog of sweet electronic melodies and vocalist Jon Thor Birgisson's childlike falsetto. Recorded in the band's swimming-pool-turned-recording-studio, ( ) embodies lushness, draping a live string section over samplers, pianos, guitars, and other postclassical/electronic experiments. The album leaves language behind, collecting titleless songs under simple parentheses and drifting into an atmosphere of sonic splendor; in other words, this is exactly the kind of CD I'd want as a college kid gobbling up mushrooms and acid and watching the sun set over a field of deer. Sigur Rs melt your brain into lumps of gray-matter goo, making listening to your headphones an out-of-body experience only a good dealer or an expert boyfriend can attempt to match. JENNIFER MAERZ

It's great. At the moment i don't think it's as good as the last album, but I reckon it will definitely grow on me, so I may change my mind. Tracks 1, 2, 4 and 8 are my favourites, but that's probably because I've heard them before so they've already had chance to grow on me.

sigur Ros. When I figure out how to work my new scanner I'll post some of my pics from when I saw them a few weeks ago. That could be a while though, as I'm rather technically challenged and have absolutely no free time.

the pitchfork review gave it a 7.6.

here' a funny little part!!

The second half of ( ) returns to the simpler sounds of gtis Byrjun's ten-minute post-Floyd jams-- passages in track five ("Alafoss") and track seven ("Death") all but namecheck Dark Side of the Moon. The closer, "Popp", meanwhile, will draw the expected Radiohead comparisons ("like 'Knives Out' on a morphine drip..."); if it and Radiohead's recent live material are any indication, the two bands are on a collision course: they should release the exact same album sometime in 2004

Its very good.

It took me a few listens to get into it but I love it now.

If you have a chance to catch them live then you have to...they are great in concert.

I finally heard thw whole thing, in headphones no less!!!

this stuff is so amazingly beautiful. The only thing that almost didn't work was the repition of about 8 syllabals the whole way through. But it kinda does work because you can almost hear your own words for everysong.
I hear a lot of "Do you sigh alone?" myself
and once I swore I heard "you sit alone by a fire"

I liked the pitchfork review of the first album. That review will bring tears to your eyes!
"They are not post-rock...they are pre-whatever comes in the 21st century...this is the first vital band of the 21st century"

Soundtrack to heaven. with a touch of sadness.

And Kirk I heard the same lines....I'm listening to track 4 right now.

I was so far gone into the first song, When the first song ended, i realized i was driving 30mph in a 50 mph zone. Luckily there was nobody around,


All i can say is---Music touches feelings that words cannot

this album is a prime example of that. I cant wait to see them this tuesday.
