5.0 out of 5 stars Simply breathtaking 13 Oct 2007
By J. Blaze - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To see where the future of music is heading, look no futher than this album. Originally a producer on the Bjork albums, Valgeir (also from Iceland) is now donning his composer hat for his first solo debut, and what a debut it is. This is an amazing meld of classical music with experimental electronic music that provides an amazing sonic texture. Some tracks are wordless while a few feature vocals from the legendary Will Oldahm and others. There is soul just dripping off this record from start to finish. Do not think twice about buying this amazing piece of art, you will thank me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review 8 Jun 2008
By Headphone Commute - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The founder of the Icelanding collective, Bedroom Community, finally releases his solo debut on his own label. Although this is a first full length album for Valgeir Siguršsson, he is no stranger to the studio. His musical career spans over a decade, and includes a lot of production work for Björk (Selmasongs, Vespertne, Medúlla and Drawing Restraint 9). He has also worked with múm on Finally We Are No One and CocoRosie on The Adventures Of Ghosthorse And Stillborn. On Bedroom Community releases, Valgeir contributed towards Ben Frost's Theory of Machines and Nico Muhly's Speaks Volumes. Nico in turn reciprocated, and played piano for six (out of ten) tracks on Ekvílíbrium. Which finally brings us to the album. Ekvílíbrium captures some of the most essential elements of today's electronica [if such genre dares to exist]. From tightly produced, programmed, cut up, and re-arranged sounds to organic drums, guitars, full blown strings and brass section, Valgeir toys with sounds and melodies that speak out in their own unique music tongue. The vocals from Will Oldham (aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy) and Faun Fables' Dawn McCarthy, are neatly folded and cradled by the top-notch mastered instrumentation. Some pieces contain that toytronic sound with music-box-like-quality, that is so reminiscent by the aforementioned múm. What I'm trying to say is this: if "Icelandic" was a sub-genre of electronic music all on its own, then Siguršsson should be mentioned in the headline for its definition. For now, I can only attempt to throw around labels like leftfield, downtempo, and modern classical, to capture this unique sound. Whip out your best headphones [and not necessarily the most expensive] - Ekvílíbrium is a sure treat for audiophiles. Recommended for the above mentioned names, plus Sylvain Chauveau, Deaf Center, Helios, Marsen Jules and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Favorite track: Winter Sleep.
5.0 out of 5 stars Warm music from a cold climate 25 Jan 2013
By Noel A. Hodda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is inventive and exciting music. At times dark and sombre but at other times full of warmth and joy. Each listen reveals something new. There are several styles on display here but they meld into one beautiful whole. Each track rewards listening apart from the others if you are a 'shuffle' listener but as one continuous piece of music it works as well. At another time I might be tempted to wax lyrical about the structure of the music, the guest artists and what they contribute and so on but not today. Suffice to say that if you have an ear for beauty and inventiveness this is one for you. Get out of the sterile electronica or basic rock music rut and do your ears a favour by getting this and immersing yourself in it.
