Hilmar Orn & Sigur Ros (Angels of the Universe: Or&hellip ~ Hilmar Írn Hilmarsson
32 of 47 people found the following review helpful
The promise of more Sigur Ros to listen to (after enjoying Agaetis Byrjun so much) was enough to make me buy this album. However, despite an atmospheric introduction in typically icelandic wasteland style (the music is set to a film featuring a mentally ill man) the album soon becomes monotonous and repetative riddled with one minute 'filler' tracks. The entrance of Sigur Ros comes disappointingly late (the last two tracks out of seventeen) and whilst it was nice to hear some more of their stuff, these two tracks are not special enough to warrent the purchase of this album. Do not buy this album in search of surrogette Sigur Ros, buy it only if you went mad about the film.
