There are some songs I don't really like on this album but taken all together it's a very relaxing listening experience.

How do Sigur Ros keep doing it? Producing amazing unique music? The track Varud is spine tingling. They are legends.

An album that makes you feel anywhere but in your lounge. The album forces one to explore a musical landscape, which is an absolute pleasure, especially after a hard day in the office.

Best album since Takk. Though as I continue to listen to Valtari, I may soon admit this album has surpassed Takk. Whereas Takk has the better songs, this album works better as a whole. The songs all melt into one-another and the strings and haunting vocals are subtle, yet intricately manipulating the songs they are supporting.

A brilliant album and so far my best buy of 2012.

It all kind of blends into one mess of a sound. i preferred their earlier album with the naked people running around on the cover, that had 3-4 stand out tracks at least

Some of Valtari reminds me of early psychedelic Pink Floyd-Circa Syd Barrett.The rest is pure Sigur Ros except it's incredibly sombre and funereal.It's not exactly a departure from the tried and tested formula employed to great success before...just essentially slooooooow.I've listened to it over and over again trying to gauge if its a grower which will suddenly grab me. It appears not. Three stars is about right.It's not a bad album to have on while your doing something like writing and don't to be distracted, or as peaceful driving music.It's just not that inspiring....just OK.

I've been a massive fan of Sigur Ros since Agaetis Byrjun, collecting all their albums and seen them live twice. This album is awful though. They have taken one idea, not even a new one, and spread it out over eight over-long tracks. Think of one of the dullest track from their weak () album and imagine it repeated over 55 minutes. Drums and guitars appear non-existant - just strings, synths and the same sampled vocal effects which I've grown a bit tired of. I bought this on the strength of one magazine reviewer describing one track as ending up sounding like two planets colliding in space, which to me sounded like something from Agaetis Byrjun or Takk. I waited right to the last track for this and it never happened - there's only track that builds and it ends with more of a whimper than a cosmic climax. This is the musical equivalent of watching paint dry - or perhaps to use a cliched Sigur Ros reviewer metaphor - like watching a glacier melt. Beautiful to some, numbingly dull to others.
