that is quite the statement, yes?

I've only heard two - Svefn-g-englar and Olsen Olsen, and I like the latter better. The first time I heard the horns and the choir voices I was blown away. Haven't heard it since though - I'm still listening to the Manics. Sigh, I'll make up for my musical folly by repeating Olsen Olsen over and over.

I can never remember track names. It seems to me that I really liked most everything off of the fetus album with the name I can't spell. And I adore ().

sigur
ros

AB is a far better album in my opinion

( ) is awesome and I LOVE #3 and 4 and 5 and 7 and 1 most of all

but it's more formulated and cliche than AB

Birgessons "hopelandish" language is a bit on the excessive side as well. There's only so much I want to hear "You xylo fi. so lo"

I really like Sigur, but I have to say that Ros really sucks.

*hates you*

I still need to buy AB. I love the entire () album. It is pure genius.

I cant say enough times how this concert was the best show i've seen all year if not EVER. I thank Kirk, Gina, Sula and of course, you bear for this masterpiece I now own and cherish.

WOrds to describe them:

Ground breaking
beauty
love
heavenly
power
strength
grace
moving
bittersweet
earth shattering

ok that'll do.


i like jonsi.
