the only word i can use to describe this album is incredible. The use of instrumentation, orchestration and dynamics is truely perfect. Unless you are fluent in Icelandic, you will not understand the lyrics, but that doesn't matter. The wonderful melodies float over purely beautiful music, this is enough to take you somewhere else.
It's one of those albums you can listen to again and again, something new in the music will crop up every time you listen to it. The use of bowing on the guitar creates a machine like sound and is high in the mix.
Thank God someone out there is doing this. Perhaps the future is not so bleak.
